Vaccine roll out in SC

As someone “of age” it’s a mess! SC admits not enough vaccine nor providers to distribute. Being a red state, I hope they don’t turn down help from Biden Administration...I think vaccine hesitancy is not the issue, but too much demand & not enough supply.

Dan is a perfect host. He has interesting guests for reasonably deep dives. He probes further when appropriate. Overall he leaves guests more (or newly) informed about critical issues in health policy.
