What is covered in Smash Notes episode on vaccines and healthcare in America?
Healthcare is broken, and even if you have health insurance, you may not be able to afford your treatment, or your doctor might refuse to see you. Some hospitals and some doctors are taking the problem in their own hands and getting creative so you could get treatment, and they could get paid.
Meanwhile, while vaccines can save countless lives and prevent terrible lifetime handicaps, some choose not to vaccinate anyway. How vaccines work, and how not vaccinating can damage the herd immunity, it's all in this episode.
