More from this show

President Biden plans to get the COVID-19 vaccine to as many Americans as soon as possible. We talked with Assistant Professor, Swapna Reddy (JD, DrPH, MPH) of Arizona State University College of Health Solutions about Biden’s COVID-19 plan and how it differs from the previous administration.

Reddy said Biden’s approach is almost an “opposite approach” from the previous administration. She said they have been science-focused and data-driven. We ask about easing restrictions on who can get shots and if it is something the Federal government can accelerate.

In Arizona, mobile vaccination efforts are really important can make a big impact on Native American Country. Reddy talks about the plan to increase PPE and testing. We ask why this hasn’t been done before. Reddy says Biden has a strong group of external experts that Biden put together before the inauguration.
