  • Is it time to get your second booster, or can you wait?

    Only about 11 percent of those 50 and over have gotten a second COVID-19 booster shot, though the FDA approved them for immunocompromised people and older people in March. An expert explains why more people haven’t gotten the second booster and explains how to know when it’s time to get yours.

    Journalist Shireen Abu Akleh was killed last week in Palestine. We check in on where U.S.-Israel relations stand and how the response compares to how the U.S. responded to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey.
