Clearing Up Respiratory Health Confusion And Improving Early Childhood Literacy This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, Emily Rice reports on health experts working to clear up confusion around vaccine scheduling and access as we enter the respiratory illness season.

And studies show that if children aren’t up to speed by the third grade it can indicate future difficulties in and out of the classroom. As Chris Schulz reports, a new law is now in effect across West Virginia to implement more effective reading education.

Also, Randy Yohe reports that West Virginia’s Senate Finance Committee Chair expects to bring more indictments like the one last week involving a DHHR manager and COVID-19 testing, a look at the latest State of West Virginia University address, a new solar energy project and a reminder to look out for a check in the mail.
