"This week, Stephanie Desmon and Josh Sharfstein are teaming up to talk to experts about COVID-19 vaccine mandates. Today, they look through the ethical lens with Nancy Kass, a leading ethicist at Johns Hopkins. They discuss why vaccine mandates should never be Plan A, when mandates can become critically necessary and how mandates shouldn’t be put in place for frivolous reasons or settings, just when public health is at stake." - Johns Hopkins School of Public Health
