WGLT's Sound Ideas - Wednesday 6/23/21

Teens in Bloomington Normal have a fairly low vaccination rate. And there are reasons for that: a need for parental consent, transportation gaps, scheduling around a summer job or a parent's job, and so on. A Bloomington nonprofit hopes to chip away at low vaccination rates among young people. Plus, Pridefest in Bloomington-Normal this weekend continues a long tradition. Hear why it takes on a special significant this year. ISU students have mixed opinions about a potential vaccine mandate to be on campus in the fall term. Finally, some in law enforcement wonder if perceptions about police have turned people away from a career behind the badge.
