Faculty in the News: Treating the Unvaccinated

Dr. Dhruv Khullar, assistant professor of population health sciences, shares his perspective on healthcare in the United States and globally as a contributing author at The New Yorker. In his latest article, “Treating the Unvaccinated,” Dr. Khullar noted that while the American public has access to multiple COVID-19 vaccines, more than forty percent of adults have not been fully vaccinated, marking avoidable deaths in this fourth wave of the pandemic. He suggests four strategies to get closer to full vaccination nationally: education, incentives, full F.D.A. approval, and mandates. To prevent further tragic loss of life, the gap in viewpoints between the vaccinated and unvaccinated must be closed. Read Dr. Khullar’s other contributions to The New Yorker here.
