This hour, Connor Cyrus talks with a Dartmouth researcher on the latest COVID-19 policies.

Live call-in discussion: The FDA has authorized updated COVID-19 booster shots that will target Omicron subvariants, and they are expected to be available as soon as Sept. 7 in Vermont.

The new boosters come as students return to schools and colleges, hoping this academic year will be more normal than the past couple.

Our guest is:

  • Anne Sosin, public health practitioner and researcher at Dartmouth College who’s led research on COVID-19 and rural health equity in northern New England

Broadcast live at noon on Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2022; rebroadcast at 7 p.m.
