  1. 333333:Efforts by actor Sean Penn to boost the number of people inoculated in Georgia against COVID-19 are yielding mixed results. Community Organized Relief Effort (CORE), a disaster-relief nonprofit founded by Penn, has set up pop-up vaccine clinics at multiple sites around the state such as schools, markets, and factories, but the number of participants in some communities is well below what was expected. Skepticism about vaccines is the key factor in the state, with the percentage of fully vaccinated residents being significantly lower than the national average. A CORE site at an Atlanta church last week attracted just one person over the course of six hours. arkansasonline.com
