CLEVELAND — COVID-19 continues to be the hot topic of conversation between the GO! morning show team and viewers. 

From a COVID-19 vaccine, Ohio hitting the 15% positivity rate, to letting our guard down in terms of the virus, the team covered all of these angles on today’s edition of the On the GO! aftershow.

“Once we get this vaccine, hopefully our lives can start looking more normal,” morning reporter Austin Love said after sharing his reporting on the timeline and plan for a vaccine here in the US. 

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has indicated that the state’s first batches of the COVID-19 vaccine are expected around Dec. 15.

However some, like Facebook user S Allen Huff, are skeptical of getting vaccinated so soon. Huff expressed a personal opinion in the comments section writing, “No thank you! A vaccine pushed through this fast is not safe!”

Nina Lohn-Kramer, another viewer on Facebook, disagreed writing, “I will definitely get the vaccine! I miss seeing my parents.” 

Nina says being quarantined scared her so now she only goes to the grocery store.

Dave Chudowsky, morning show co-anchor, also chimed in about getting the vaccine, summing his thoughts up with two points for everyone to consider.

"Number one, do you feel you are at risk of getting the coronavirus?" Chudowsky said. "Then (consider) your obligation as a human being to try not to spread the coronavirus.”
