How to combat vaccine hesitancy? Stop censoring experts...

I don't consider myself vaccine hesitant, because I have had them all.  Looking at my immunization record book I see that I've had: Polio, MMR, dTap, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Meningitis, and while it's not listed I know I've also taken a shot for Tetanus.The big one lacking of course is the Covid shot, or shots I guess.  Why not?  There are a number of reasons actually.  Firstly I've never been worried about this Covid bug, like a large segment of the population (many of whom have rolled up the...

To snuff out the fire before it is too late re...
