THE STATE IS LAUNCHING A NEW COVID-19 VACCINE CAMPAIGN IN HOPES OF REACHING THOSE STILL ON THE FENCE ABOUT GETTING THE SHOTS.

 

THE INITIAL ROLLOUT FEATURES FOUR VIDEOS FROM ILLINOISANS WHO WERE INITIALLY HESITANT ABOUT GETTING THE VACCINE. THAT INCLUDES KEN, A PASTOR FROM DANVILLE WHO, ALONG WITH HIS WIFE, CAUGHT THE VIRUS.

 

 

SHANNON IS A NURSE FROM QUINCY WHO CONTRACTED THE VIRUS OVER A YEAR AGO BUT HAS NOT BEEN ABLE TO RETURN TO WORK YET.

 

 

MORE VIDEOS IN THE "ON THE FENCE" CAMPAIGN WILL BE RELEASED IN COMING WEEKS. ACCORDING TO THE C-D-C, THE UNVACCINATED ARE 17 TIMES MORE LIKELY TO BE HOSPITALIZED WITH COVID THAN THOSE WHO HAVE GOTTEN THEIR SHOTS AND THE BOOSTER.
