Recently Kevin Price, Host of the nationally syndicated Price of Business Show, interviewed Dr. Jerome Adams.

Host Kevin Price visited with former US Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams about his new book and the surge in COVID again.

With COVID infections on the rise since June, many Americans are confused about how to keep themselves healthy this fall and winter. And the latest data on COVID risk and impact may surprise many Americans and are especially relevant during back-to-school and the cooler weather. Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams joined Kevin Price to help make sense of the science and offer his medical recommendations to help keep everyone as safe as possible this year.

The latest data on COVID risk and impact may surprise many Americans and are especially relevant during back-to-school season and as the weather cools. 75-percent of U.S. adults have underlying conditions that put them at increased risk of severe complications due to COVID-19. More than half of COVID-19 related hospitalizations in the U.S. were in adults ages 18 to 64. And hospitalizations from COVID-19 were three times that of flu this past year.


Mild infections can lead to:

Long COVID ~ new data shows that vaccination can mitigate long COVID
A severe impact on productivity and contribute to absenteeism
Mild infection from younger populations can be transmitted to vulnerable and high-risk populations
