Dr. Michael Bauer: ‘I think fully vaccinated people that are in good health really can go about their business and feel very comfortable and safe in most things that they are doing’


SPRINGFIELD, MISSOURI – AUGUST 05: A COVID vaccine clinic stands open in a school on August 05, 2021 in Springfield, Missouri. According to the latest numbers from the state’s health department, only a little more than 4 in 10 Missourians have received the COVID vaccine as the pandemic continues to infect thousands of residents. Communities with high rates of unvaccinated residents have been hit especially hard by the Delta variant, the unvaccinated representing the overwhelming majority of hospitalized patients.

Dr. Michael Bauer, Medical Director at Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital, joins Anna to talk about Governor Pritzker’s mask mandate for schools, what we should know about breakthrough infections, if we should start testing everyone who attends a larger event, the severity of illness the Delta variant causes, when we might need booster shots and when we might see the vaccines get full FDA approval.
