On today’s show, I touch on some Florida news to include the suspected norovirus outbreak onboard the Royal Caribbean vessel, Oasis of the Seas, which as of today has accounted for some 600 GI cases in passengers and crew.
I also look at some year end data from the Sunshine state concerning hepatitis A, mosquito borne viruses and measles.
I take a look at some vaccines for adults and touch on a fantastic book I’m reading from Dr Peter Hotez, Vaccines Did Not Cause Rachel’s Autism.
