Listener Q&A: Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy On Variants, Boosters And Vax Mandates

More than half of U.S. adults have been fully vaccinated, and case rates are at their lowest point since the pandemic began. But there are still a lot of unanswered questions about the future of the pandemic. Questions about variants, vaccine booster shots and the idea of vaccine mandates in schools or publicly-funded universities.

We had a chance to put some of the questions — including ones from you — to the nation’s top doctor, U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy, in an interview conducted on Twitter Spaces, a new platform for live audio conversations on Twitter.
