COVID cases are rising in the U.S. -- does this mean we are on the precipice of a summer wave? That’s the question for the new head of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr. Mandy Cohen. Plus, the latest on when the next round of vaccines might become available and what the expected guidelines will be about boosters going forward. Andy also dives more into Dr. Cohen’s background, why she’s taking on the role of heading the beleaguered agency at this time, and how she plans to restore trust in the CDC.
