Dr. Jonathan Howard once again joins the podcast to talk about his new book, "We Want Them Infected." The book examines a movement led by doctors during the COVID-19 pandemic who advocated for intentionally infecting unvaccinated individuals to develop herd immunity. Dr. Howard discusses how this idea influenced the national pandemic response and the real-world consequences that ensued. He also acknowledges the harms caused by lockdowns but emphasizes the flawed assumptions and lack of consideration for collateral damage in the proposed strategy.

A distinguished author, Dr. Howard has penned several authoritative textbooks on neurology. Notably, he is the writer behind Cognitive Errors and Diagnostic Mistakes: A Case-Based Guide to Critical Thinking in Medicine. Well before the pandemic emerged, Dr. Howard had a deep-rooted interest in vaccines and the counter-vaccine movement. Preceding the global health crisis, he was a co-author for a book chapter titled The Anti-Vaccine Movement: A Litany of Fallacy and Errors.
Throughout the pandemic, he has been actively contributing to the discourse on the mainstream acceptance of anti-vaccine sentiments within the medical field.
His writings on this matter can be found on Science Based Medicine. Moreover, he has collaborated on research papers focused on the neurological implications of COVID-19 patients and the vaccination process for individuals with multiple sclerosis.
