Rockford Scanner™: CHIEF REDD TALKS ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE WITH COVID-19, COVID Numbers Are Still Rising in Winnebago county




CHIEF REDD TALKS ABOUT HER EXPERIENCE WITH COVID-19: When COVID-19 vaccines became available early last year, Rockford Police Chief Carla Redd wanted to do her research before deciding whether or not to get it. In May 2021, she made her decision – but just days before her vaccination appointment, she tested positive. She was off work for three weeks and was incredibly sick.
“I couldn’t get out of bed,” says Chief Redd. “I was wondering what life was going to be like for my kids without their mom. I was that sick.”
Thankfully, she recovered, and she and her family – including her 17 year old – are now vaccinated. She’s encouraging others to do the same.
“If you don’t want to get vaccinated for yourself, do it for a loved one!” she says. “You may not have an underlying condition that puts you at high risk, but your mom or grandma may. Protect others and get vaccinated.”
