Vaccine distribution continues in most parts of the United States, and President Biden said every American will have the opportunity to get a shot. However, the country is also seeing yet another spike in cases of COVID-19, mainly the population under 65 and due to the variant spread.

Donna Skoda is the commissioner of the Summit County Health Department, and she touched on all of these concerns on the Ray Horner Morning Show. Though there has not been a massive increase in cases in the state of Ohio, there is still a concern, according to Skoda, especially with a younger population that can be prone to letting their guards down. She says they are seeing hospitalization increases between the ages of 20 and 40.

Skoda also talked about the vaccines, from the pausing of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to whether or not pregnant women should take the shot.
