On Deck - Thursday, February 11, 2021

WCBU's On Deck has everything you need to know to start your day for Thursday, February 11, 2021. Our top story is about how the large encampment of people experiencing homelessness, living under the Murray Baker Bridge made headlines last year. Now, Phoenix Community Development Services has secured permanent shelters for 12 of them. WCBU student reporter Jordan Mead has that story. You'll also hear how surging overall demand for the COVID-19 vaccine may mask hesitancy among certain populations, particularly among people of color. That's why Dr. Abeer AlMajali an infectious diseases physician at the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria is conducting a survey in Peoria County to find and hopefully address the concerns that may make some think twice before rolling up their sleeve.WCBU's On Deck for Thursday, February 11, 2021.
