As COVID-19 data continues to be updated, vaccines are a common topic of conversation amongst Gen-Z. It’s important that teens have these conversations with each other, because it breaks the stigma and fear around getting vaccinated. Atlanta-area teens Rachel McBride and Denise Webb came together to share Georgia vaccine statistics and their personal opinions as they relate to teens and the COVID-19 vaccine.
