Covid Fall Wave, New Booster Shots. Colorado’s Covid hospitalizations dropped during the summer, but Denver’s public health department is warning that infections will increase during the fall. In other news, the federal government suspended the program of sending free Covid-19 testing kits to people around the US because Congress hasn’t authorized more funding. In more news, federal health authorities authorized updated Covid booster shots that target Omicron subvariants, ahead of a fall or winter surge. These and other news are discussed with a top representative of Colorado state’s health system.

How to get the student loans forgiven? What to know about the repayments? How to protect against scams?
