Vital source of information

Especially now that a lot of the podcasts about Covid have moved on to other things, this is a vital source of information.

No new information

You don’t need to tell us multiple times that only people who received Pfizer are qualified for a booster under the CDC’s latest guidance. We are well aware (and disgruntled) by lack of action and information on Moderna and J&J. There is little to no information addressing our concerns. Anyone who can read would have the information provided in today’s podcast.
