NAACP President Rev. Kobi Little released the following statement:
“We are sounding the alarm about the danger posed by COVID Delta and encouraging everyone to get vaccinated. Vaccination is the best way to stem the tide of the coming COVID Delta surge. We must understand the clear and present danger presented by COVID Delta and protect ourselves before it is too late. Vaccines aren't a perfect solution but they will provide greater protection from hospitalization and death than anything else. It is our hope that by increasing awareness of the threats our community will come together to protect itself.”
