This week on WBAA’s Ask The Mayor: COVID-19 vaccinations have expanded to new recipients in Indiana, with Hoosiers 70 and older now able to register for appointments.  What’s the best way to connect older residents with the assistance they might need to get signed up? And how can local officials help facilitate a smooth process as more and more people become eligible for their vaccination?

This week in our talk with Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski, we’ll discuss the impact of the county’s move into the state’s red COVID category. What guidelines and virus prevention measures are changing – and what will stay the same?

Plus, more on how the city might respond if planned nationwide protests this weekend reach the Greater Lafayette area -- and how the mayor feels about bridging political divides and the responsibilities of elected officials to their constituents at this moment of national reckoning.
