Chicago Commissioner of Public Health Answers a Myriad of COVID and Vaccine Questions


Listen HERE on WGN Radio as I pepper Commissioner of the Chicago Department of Public Health Dr. Allison Arwady with my questions and mostly questions from listeners and texters.

Questions about vaccination if as person has been recently positive with COVID-19; should you vaccinate if you have a cold; if you can’t get a COVID-19 test and feel sick, what do you do? Boosters if you have the J&J vaccine; questions regarding confusion regarding when to quarantine and how long to do it; prospects of a second booster (which Israel is investigating) and more with one of the nation’s experts on the pandemic.

Dr. Awady points out that he overwhelming majority of those in Chicago hospitals (and hospitals around the country) with COVID-19 are not vaccinated at all.
