Weekly conversations with POLITICO health care reporters and some of the most interesting and influential people in health care.
What to know about the new mask guidance
POLITICO’s Erin Banco breaks down everything we know — and don’t — about the CDC’s new mask guidance.
How Covid upended the workforce
The economy is recovering, but millions are still out of jobs. POLITICO's Katherine Landergan spoke to a panel of experts about how to get Americans back to work.
Japan's Olympic gamble
The Tokyo Olympics will take place under a state of emergency with no spectators. POLITICO's Ryan Heath talks with Dispatch's Jeremy Siegel about why Covid could still be a problem.
In Chicago, Biden's vax plan crashes into reality
After falling short of its July Fourth goal, the White House is now turning to a hyper-local strategy. But as POLITICO's Natasha Korecki reports, progress is slow.
What to know about the Delta variant
The bad news: It’s more transmissible. The good news: Vaccines seem to work on it. POLITICO's David Lim talks with Dispatch's Jeremy Siegel about how much of a problem the Delta variant could be.
Why we're gonna miss our vaccine goal
The Fourth of July. That was the date Biden wanted 70 percent of the country vaccinated by. But that doesn't look like it's going to happen. POLITICO's Adam Cancryn talks with Dispatch's Jeremy Siegel about why.
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.
Health policy at its best
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.
To bad you don’t have open minds
As a user of hydroxychloraquine it can and has helped for many. We should use all avenues to get through this epidemic instead of only using very expensive drugs. It is too bad you follow the party line.
