Exposing the Biggest Vaccine Lies and Liars (with Surgeon General Vivek Murthy)
Andy explores the latest hazard to your health: the misinformation persuading people not to get vaccinated. US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy has declared war on misinformation and explains why he put out a rare Surgeon General's Advisory on the topic. Andy then covers the latest data on how Americans get information and what they believe with Molly Brodie of the Kaiser Family Foundation. And Dr. Lisa is out and about having conversations with people on the street in North Carolina and Virginia.
