LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – JUNE 10: A sign advertises a free vaccination site set up inside Union Station in an effort to target commuters on June 10, 2021 in Los Angeles, California. The rate of coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations has dropped since peaking in April, putting in jeopardy the goal of having 70 percent of adults receive at least one dose of a coronavirus vaccine by July 4 set by U.S. President Joe Biden. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data shows 63.7 percent of Americans over the age of 18 have received a first dose of a vaccine and 53 percent have been fully vaccinated.

15th Ward Alderman Ray Lopez joins Anna to talk about NYC announcing they will now require vaccination for entry into restaurants and gyms and if he thinks Chicago should also require vaccination to enter businesses. Ald. Lopez also talks about Chicago’s efforts to combat crime.
