If you have doubts or questions about COVID19 and vaccines (the facts and myths), and want to know more about the new the Delta Variant taking hold around the globe, then this is the ‘Preparing for the Unexpected’ episode you must not miss. I speak with internationally recognized expert Regina Phelps (who was also a nurse), who puts everything into perspective.
