- Vaping, COVID, And The Biden Administration's Approach To Public Health NPR 13:15
The Biden administration says Americans now have access to the tools they need to protect themselves from COVID, as a new spike in cases begins. Deaths have remained low so far and the administration — recognizing the political realities — has not pushed for new restrictions.

This episode: White House correspondent Tamara Keith, national political correspondent Mara Liasson, and health correspondent Allison Aubrey.
