'We Can’t Afford To Keep Going To Funerals': The Lumbee Tribe Works To Combat COVID Surge

Tested Podcast logo

In Robeson County, about a third of residents are fully vaccinated. As of September 16th, 39% of the county has received a single dose. For members of the Lumbee Tribe in the region, that rate is even lower.

As COVID continues to inundate Robeson County, health officials and local leaders are working tirelessly to get more tribal members vaccinated.
