Dr. Jeffrey Kopin: ‘Get vaccinated now before this Delta variant is around in a big way’


POMONA, CALIFORNIA – JUNE 10: A sign promotes a nearly empty mass vaccination site at the Pomona Fairplex on June 10, 2021 in Pomona, 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.

Dr. Jeffrey Kopin, chief medical officer for Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital, joins Anna to talk about the concern over the Delta COVID variant, how the vaccines are effective against the Delta variant, what we know about a “COVID alarm” that can smell if someone has infection, a new study showing that makeup may contain potentially toxic chemicals, and if the Cubs Beer Cup Train raises any health concerns.
