More than 40% of Americans may not get a flu shot this year. That could spell trouble during COVID.

From the article: "A survey of more than 1,000 U.S. adults commissioned by the National Foundation for Infectious Diseases found that while more than 60% of Americans agreed the flu shot was the best way to prevent flu deaths and hospitalizations, 44% said they were unsure about or not planning to get a flu vaccine this year."

The main reason cited for not getting a flu shot is a belief that it isn't effective. Experts say flu shots prevent thousands of deaths every year.

Sweeping new vaccine mandates for 100 million Americans

From the article: In addition to the vaccination requirements, Biden moved to double federal fines for airline passengers who refuse to wear masks on flights or to maintain face covering requirements on federal property in accordance with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines.

WASHINGTON (AP) — In his most forceful pandemic actions and words, President Joe Biden on Thursday ordered sweeping new federal vaccine requirements for as many as 100 million Americans — private-sector employees as well as health care workers and federal contractors — in an all-out effort to ...

Opinion: The one vaccine hesitancy argument not so easily refuted

GCEP Director Dr. Anwar Osborne wrote this poignant, timely op-ed for The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

From the piece: "The fractured relationship between healthcare and the Black community can fill tomes, from tales of disparity about pain medication prescribing to children with long-bone fractures to outcomes with COVID itself."

For as much hope as I had when I received my vaccination, it almost all vanished over the past week as it feels like the scene from “The Godfather III” where Michael Corleone thinks he’s gotten out, but is pulled back into a world of violence. But for me, it’s back into this senseless new pa...

We are deeply saddened to share this news about past GCEP member Dr. Leon Haley Jr., who built part of his extraordinary career here in Georgia. Dr. Haley became the first Black CEO of UF Health - Jacksonville in 2018, and was also at the forefront of the fight against COVID-19, becoming the first person in Jacksonville to receive the Pfizer vaccine in mid-December.

Dr. Haley was a true leader and friend, and he will be greatly missed.

UF Health Jacksonville was the first local hospital to receive shipments of the COVID-19 vaccine, Dr. Haley, a physician, was the first in line there to get the shot
