The vaccine bus visit is only part of NGP's overall efforts to educate and inform Georgians. NGP is aggressively working to raise $10M to support their vaccine outreach efforts, with more than $2M already raised. To date, they've supported vaccinations for 18,000 Georgians, focusing on the rural areas of the state with concentrated populations of unvaccinated people. NGP's work caught the attention of the White House, where the Biden administration is working towards a goal of fully vaccinating 200M people by July 4, 2021. "Ultimately, The New Georgia Project will do whatever it takes to protect the rights - and the health - of the people who call our state home. We're happy to partner with Vice President Harris on this shared initiative,"
