    Neal has requested 10,000 doses of the Covid vaccine and it’s looking like he will get them so he and Daena go through the details of planning equitable and efficient distribution of that many doses. If you are a pharmacist, listen up! Daena got her second shot yesterday and is suffering a bit today, but there were some surprising precursors she noticed yesterday before the symptoms really set in.

    #97 Second Dose of Covid Will Kick Your Butt

    #97 Second Dose of Covid Will Kick Your Butt

    Life is still hectic in the independent pharmacy world so Neal and Daena do a quick recap of how it's going with the second doses. The side effects are worse, people are getting flaky about showing up, the chain pharmacies have gotten involved, plus the task of maintaining a second dose stand-by list has Neal ready for a bourbon, of which he has A LOT.

    #96 The Covid Vaccine Extravaganza, Pt 2

    Today, Neal continues his talk about the vaccine roll-out. He explains how extra doses are extracted from the viles, the shame of doses being wasted, how different groups will likely get their shots, vaccine brand loyalty, making sure doses make their way into minority communities, the pros of a single payer insurance system, and as an aside- his new dog.

    #95 The Covid Vaccine Extravaganza, Pt 1

    Covid vaccine distribution is underway and Neal has been doing an exceptional job getting as many people vaccinated in a timely fashion as he is capable with the doses he’s been allotted. He has held two clinics at the time of this recording and tells us all about the process for procuring doses and the technology issues he’s run into in dealing with both a limited supply and an elderly patient base less familiar with the internet. He also addresses the feelings of frustration and jealousy among those not yet eligible to be vaccinated, the lie about the federal cache of doses, and he explains how he went about picking his first 100 recipients.

Listen to this, not that uncredentialed person on YouTube

Truly a breath of fresh air with all of the misinformation out there in the health & wellness industry. We need more people like this in the world to combat all the snake oil salesman disguised as wellness experts out there.

Practical and evidence based information

Neal presents information about wellness and the supplement industry that is based on science, not hype. His guests possess expertise in a wide range of health topics. His producer, Daena, is “everyman/woman” who asks questions that we all want to ask. They both share personal experiences that make them highly relatable. Together they are very entertaining. If you like Dr. Fauci, you’ll love Dr. Neal!
