THIS is the adorable moment the Surgeon General’s live interviewed was crashed by his son – who couldn’t wait to give his dad a hug.
Vivek Murthy was talking to CBS This Morning, when his four-year-old son interrupted to sit on his lap.

Gayle King can be heard saying, “what the hell is that, it looks like a dog” moments before the young boy went live.
“I’ll show you what it is,” Vivek said. “It’s my little boy.”
Vivek was appointed by President Joe Biden on March 23, 2021 as the 21st Surgeon General of the United States.
According to his bio, Vivek’s medical career commitment began early in life.
The son of immigrants from India, he discovered the art of healing watching his parents – Hallegere and Myetriae Murthy – treat patients like family in his father’s medical clinic in Miami, Florida.
Vivek married Alice Chen, an internal medicine doctor who trained and Yale and Cornell, and later became executive director for Doctors for America.

Vivek had been discussing the recent pause of Johnson & Johnson vaccines in the US due to blood clots.
He said the pause was a good thing, but acknowledged there could be some new vaccine hesitancy.
Of the 7 million J&J vaccines administered, 6 people reported blood clots.
Officials said they were investigating clots in six women aged 18-48 that occurred six to 13 days after vaccination.
The US has paused the jab, but the EU and UK watch and wait.

The J&J vaccine is yet to be approved in the UK, although 30 million doses are on pre-order, while the firm said it would be halting delivery to Europe.
After the young child sat on Murthy’s lap, King welcomed the child to the show.
“Good morning to your son,” she said.
