With COVID-19 cases skyrocketing in the U.S. and around the world, and the Delta variant causing havoc, we must face the fact that this pandemic is on the verge causing much more death and illness as students prepare to go back to school next month. This is especially troublesome in regions in the U.S. and regions around the world where overwhelming majorities of citizens (especially teens and children) are unvaccinated. Mike is joined by Dr. Peter Hotez to explain how important the next few months will be, the never-ending battle with both the anti-vax and right-wing misinformation machines, and the inexpensive Covid-19 “people’s vaccine” Dr. Hotez has developed at his hospital in Houston that could become one of the cheapest and most accessible vaccines throughout the world.
