The Antigen Podcast Episode 6: Vaccine Politics, Policy & Advocacy

‘Policy’ is often considered a dry topic – but vaccine policy can become emotionally charged, quickly. In this episode, we explore the balance between individual freedom and public good as we dive into vaccine laws, mandates, and exemptions across the U.S. We also examine how individuals can make their voices heard at the local, state, and national level. Host Yasmeen Agosti speaks with Drexel University Professor Robert Field, Congresswoman Dr. Kim Schrier, LJ Tan of the Immunization Action Coalition, and parent-advocate Patti Wukovits.
