For the past six months, Isaac has been deployed to the Health team, where he documented the domestic rollout of coronavirus vaccines; broke news about the national vaccine mobilization under former President Donald Trump and President Biden; and examined the legal, political and financial forces shaping the nation's vaccination rate, as well as resistance to immunization. Isaac was a two-time intern, reporting in Washington for National in 2016 and in Germany for Foreign the following year. In 2018, while working on his doctorate in Europe, he wrote for Morning Mix.
