  1. Did Vincent just recommend that we over-65’ers go to Walgrens or Costco (or wherever) and get IPV? Born in 1954, I have no idea or record of what Polio vaccination I received, and I’m still listening for the wisdom (from TWiV) of what the longevity of protection from infection is provided by the common vaccines in the 1950’s. USAF/SMC “rocket scientist” here – thank you for sharing knowledge and facts. I love learning the things you provide.

  2. What are your thoughts on the use of Kratom for acute and chronic symptoms from Covid-19?
