Surgeon Gen. Nominee: Every Unused Vaccine Is Someone’s Life

Of the 20 million vaccinations promised before the new year, just over four million have been administered. Dr. Vivek Murthy is co-chair of President-elect Biden’s COVID-19 Advisory Board, and is set to step back into his former role of America’s surgeon general under the new administration. He speaks with Walter Isaacson about what is holding up the distribution and how to get it back on track.
