Kaitlin Meares, who works in Human Resources at the UNC Health Southeastern, stands outside the hospital in Lumberton, N.C. on September 7, 2021. As Robeson County experiences a surge in COVID-19 cases, the county still has the lowest vaccination rates in the state and many of the hospital employees remain unvaccinated as well. Meares is awaiting her second shot.

This edition of WNCW's 'More to the Story' features Producer Charlie Shelton-Ormond of WUNC, North Carolina's Public Radio Station, on why Robeson County is at the bottom of the list for residences getting vaccinated in the fight against the Coronavirus. Robeson is home to the Lumbee Indian Tribe. This interview originally aired Sept. 15, 2021.
