Archie Manning urges Mississippians to get vaccinated

Former NFL football player Archie Manning is attempting to persuade all Mississippians to get vaccinated as cases continue to rise.

Currently, Manning has teamed up with Delta Health Alliance to inform individuals about the COVID-19 vaccine.

“Once a Mississippian, always a Mississippian. I love this place, and care about what happens here,” Manning said. “Our doctors are telling us 95 percent of new hospital patients who have COVID did not get vaccinated,” he said. “We know the vaccine works, but only if you get it.”

Now that Manning is helping Delta Health Alliance, he recently was filmed in a video informing everyone of vaccinations.
