County Judge Encourages Vaccinations as County Nears 500 deaths

Williamson County Judge Bill Gravell has written a letter to residents in Williamson County encouraging those who are unsure or undecided about getting the COVID-19 vaccine to get vaccinated to help prevent more deaths. Williamson County has had an average of one death per day since the first death in the county on March 26, 2020. Every person has the right to choose whether or not to be vaccinated. What people who are undecided should know is the vast majority of recent COVID-19 cases and deaths have been unvaccinated people. Since March 2021, 95% of the confirmed case have been unvaccinated people. Judge Gravell describes this pandemic as the single greatest disaster we have faced in the history of the county. Read the full letter here.
