VOICES: River City, Episode 195: Boosted and floosted (11.2.2021)

In a welcome rarity, we’ve got a full house today!

Resident epidemiologist Dr. Flo talks us through the big news of the week related to COVID-19. Here in California, the state is setting up 4,000 sites to give out 1.2 million vaccines for kids aged 5-11 in the first week of availability.

Meanwhile, the Center for Disease Control is recommending that every adult who has had a Johnson & Johnson shot (as long as they’re at least two months removed) get a booster of any kind. Kempa went with Pfizer for round two. It was nice. 

We also discuss the ‘Striketober’ phenomenon last month, in which Americans saw an incredible number of workers (by our current standards) stand up after nearly two years of risking their lives working through the pandemic.

American billionaires got some $1.2 trillion richer since coronavirus hit. And don’t think the workers haven’t noticed. The big question: Is this the start of a mass movement, or just a moment?

Thanks for listening, defund the police and, as always:
