Reporter Roundtable: Delta Variant & Vaccine Rates
As of July 13, 2021, 55% of Illinoisans aged 12 and up are fully vaccinated and 70% have gotten at least 1 dose of the vaccine. However, there have been concerns about rising infection rates in some parts of the state. We were joined by three reporters to update us on their reporting areas' vaccine rates and the delta variant.
Becky Vevea, political reporter for WBEZ
Joe Mahr, investigative reporter for the Chicago Tribune
Sarah Fentem, health reporter for St. Louis Public Radio
