In this episode of Coronavirus: The Truth, Jeremy Corr and Dr. Robert Pearl tackle more than a dozen timely and tricky Covid-19 questions.

This week: What should listeners know about the upcoming holiday season and Covid travel restrictions? Has the Biden administration provided any clarity on the vaccine mandate for employers? How did Puerto Rico manage to out-vaccinate every American state?

And, finally, one listener asks: Can I get a flu shot and Covid-19 booster at the same time? Dr. Pearl responds at the bottom of the broadcast by noting the heightened risks of influenza this year, given the dramatic decline in cases during the 2020 flu season. He also dives into the CDC’s guidance for people hoping to double up their flu and booster shots at the pharmacy or doctor’s office.
