Understanding COVID-19 And Vaccines As Delta Variants Rate Rise

Medical experts are here to discuss more of the latest COVID issues as we cope with the fourth wave and the Delta variant.

A healthcare worker fills a syringe from a vial with a dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine against the COVID-19 coronavirus at the Klerksdorp Hospital on February 18, 2021.

First, Houston parents are petitioning Gov. Greg Abbott and the Texas Education Agency to allow school districts to require masks as the delta variant surges for children who are not yet eligible for the vaccine.

Then, we had a taste of the post-pandemic in the spring when we were told that the fully-vaccinated
could go mask-less. But now with the Delta variant and breakthrough infections, even the vaccinated are back to wearing masks indoors in areas of high transmission, according to CDC guidelines.

Our COVID-19 answers your questions and comments such as local school teacher Gordan, who encourages students and parents to mask up.
