Episode 227: Vaccines – how many pricks do you really need? Part III

In episode 227, James and the Mikes finish off vaccines. We discuss why people do or don’t take vaccines, the evidence around the pneumococcal vaccine, the zoster vaccine and pertussis vaccine. Ironically, one of the Mike’s got the flu a few days after this podcast – life is amazing.
