R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe and Mike Mills are featured in public health campaigns in their native Georgia urging locals to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
In one of his spots, Stipe explains, "There is something we can do to keep our friends and loved ones healthy. The coronavirus vaccine is safe, it's easy to get and it protects against serious illness and death."
"And now that I've done what I can to protect myself and those around me, well, I feel fine," Stipe adds.
In another PSA, Stipe calls on Athens, Georgia, a center for arts and culture, to "lead the way once again" by getting vaccinated.
"Now it's time to give back to the town we love. I got my shots and I urge you to do the same," Mills adds.
