This week on Under The Radar:

While Massachusetts debates vaccine and mask mandates, New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu signed a bill into law last week that supporters say establishes "medical freedom." Residents in the state who are not vaccinated against COVID-19 can still access public facilities and services, under the new law. The law states that all residents have the “natural, essential and inherent right to bodily integrity, free from any threat or compulsion by government to accept an immunization.”

But our guest Arnie Arnesen thinks that it will create greater levels of vulnerability, based on the politics of the legislature and the governor. "It is not about science, it is not about health, it is all about politics."

Other topics on our Regional Roundtable this week include a potential hate crime on Martha's Vineyard and regional home-seekers buying up Rhode Island property.
