On Monday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released new guidelines for fully vaccinated people. New, confirmed cases of COVID-19 are down in California. We have three vaccines in the U.S. This is all good news.

Guest: Dr. Yvonne Maldonado, professor of global health and infectious diseases at Stanford University School of Medicine
