Littwin: Dennis Prager came to Colorado, hoping to get COVID, while campaigning for Heidi Ganahl
I’m not saying right-wing radio host Dennis Prager’s bizarre approach to COVID-19 is the weirdest anti-vax moment of the pandemic, although I’m guessing it’s probably in the top 10. What I am saying, with all certainty, is that it has to be the weirdest involving the presumed frontrunner in the Colorado GOP race to choose […]
Silverman: Nothing is quite normal, even though we want the pandemic to end
Yearning for complete normalcy, we keep coming up empty. Not enough Americans trust science and vaccines. Regardless, there are significant improvements.

At home, my family celebrated the return of “The Sopranos,” via its […]

Littwin: I got the booster. The story of why people refuse the vaccine is the story of our time.
As soon as I finished writing this column, I headed over to my neighborhood pharmacy to get the Pfizer booster shot. It has been eight months since my second shot — I was fortunate to get in line early when vaccine doses were hard to come by — and the FDA and CDC have finally […]

By Matthew Perrone and Lauran Neergaard, The Associated Press WASHINGTON — Dealing the White House a stinging setback, a government advisory panel overwhelmingly rejected a plan Friday to give Pfizer COVID-19 booster shots across the board, and instead endorsed the extra vaccine dose only for those who are 65 or older or run a high […]

Littwin: The third jab is coming. Should rich countries go to a booster when poor countries are still missing a first shot?
Just when you think the war against COVID can’t get much stranger, we now have the third-jab issue to contend with.
