Breaking News Consumer’s Handbook: Vaccine Edition | On the Media

In the past week, we’ve seen the CDC pause distribution of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and new cases among the vaccinated in Michigan — coming together to paint a somewhat bleak picture of the state-of-our-vaccines. Or so it might seem. In the latest edition of our Breaking News Consumer’s Handbooks, we examine the fuzzy math and misleading language that can cloud media coverage of vaccines. Brooke speaks with Nsikan Akpan, health and science editor for the WNYC Newsroom, and Kai Kupferschmidt, a science journalist based in Berlin who writes for Science Magazine.
