Aaron Burr Show

Feb 20, 2018

On February 17, 1801 the US House of Representatives broke an electoral college tie, and chose Thomas Jefferson as our president over Aaron Burr. Mr. Burr was the consummate politician for modern times: questionable business practices, character assassination, and even sex scandals. Health Matters looks back at Mr. Burr with this offering on Marlboro Heatsticks, generic Viagra, and Restasis.

Tip: for older adults, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends annual flu shot, tetanus every 10 years, 2 Shingrix vaccinations for shingles, and two different pneumonia vaccines one year apart.
