After months of people incarcerated in jails and prisons being excluded from New York’s vaccine rollout, a judge ruled that the state must allow New Yorkers behind bars access to the COVID-19 vaccine. Jose Saldaña, the director of the Release Aging People in Prison campaign, joined Errol to talk about the ruling and the overall state of medical care in state prisons. And as someone who was incarcerated for nearly four decades, he discussed his personal journey and his experience with the parole system.
