George Griffin on the science and policy of COVID vaccination

Listen on:

George Griffin discusses these questions with Toby Wardman of SAPEA. We also discuss how to get jabs to developing countries, the origins of the anti-vax movement, and whether we should be worried about rare blood clots.

Special thanks to Rúben Castro for technical help in producing this episode.
