San Francisco Voters Recall 3 Board of Education Members

"A small piece of hopeful news good news out of San Francisco, the city has voted decisively. This is the voters. More than 70%. In a recall vote to throw out three of the members of the city school board. And the vote was not close. Allison Collins recalled by 78% to 21% Gabriella Lopez, 74% to 24%. Falga moliga recalled 71% to 27%. So this is massive majorities liberal majorities have decided to give these three scoundrels the boat. So you might ask, what's going on in San Francisco? Well, by and large, the city school board has been in complete, has kept the schools in complete shutdown. And parents are getting increasingly restless. My kids aren't getting a proper education. They're essentially being cognitively deprived for the larger part of two years when other schools gonna open, but instead of focusing on that, what the city school board was focused on is renaming the schools. Apparently, these three characters were leading a drive to rename a whole bunch of schools in San Francisco. The Abraham Lincoln school, the George Washington school, the Thomas Jefferson school that Theodore Roosevelt school, the Robert Louis Stevenson school, Nepal revere school all renamed, and the decision to rename them was taken literally in seconds. Apparently they had a sort of a research committee, the school names advisory committee, they did no real research. They did basically Google and Wikipedia. And they just decided, Abraham Lincoln, yeah, you freed the slaves, but who cares? You know, he was the American Indians didn't do very well under Lincoln. Boom, he's gone. And this was the methodology. No debate, no consultation with historians, no effort to sort of do a balanced assessment. The only time a balanced assessment came up as somebody said, well, wasn't Malcolm X kind of a racist in the early part of his career, and they were like, yeah, but he got better later. So what we're not gonna read. We're not gonna take his name off the

"We begin with late breaking news on kobe. Nineteen booster shots to highly critical votes by fda advisory committee late today the first recommending against third dose boosters pfizer's vaccine for most of the one hundred eighty million fully vaccinated americans then just a short while ago. The committee voting again. This time unanimously endorsing boosters for those sixty five and older and those at high risk from severe cova disease boosters have been shown to increase protection from covert but many experts doubt the need for most people right now. Today's split recommendation undercutting president biden spoken plea for all americans to begin receiving booster shots. Miguel almaguer has late details tonight. The fda panels dramatic denial no booster shots for the general public safety committee. Overwhelmingly rejecting third dose of pfizer's vaccine for most adults but in an unexpected second vote authorizing its use for those sixty five and older and for americans at high risk of contracting severe in nineteen. We made the decision that fellow. Israel's league which is just give a third dose curious at the core of today split decision. Clinical research from israel showing vaccine protection from infection does wane after six months but remains highly effective in preventing hospitalization and serious illness guy acting evaluate it remained affected while it may be too early for most to get a booster. The fda advisory committee agreed third. Douse could be used under emergency. Use authorization the agency could soon officially recommend a pfizer. Booster for well over. Twenty one million people scientific normal expected and healthy in the scientific community.

FDA Committee to Vote on COVID Booster Shot

"Data shows cova cases arising in fully vaccinated. Americans we call those breakthrough cases. That is why you're seeing more breakthrough infections. Now are telling me that. Breakthrough cases aren't unexpected because like with any vaccine. It's not a hundred percent effective at preventing a person from getting sick but scientists are worried. Is that one day vaccine. Efficacy is going to drop even lower and even though our vaccines are currently working well to prevent hospitalizations we are seeing concerning evidence of waning vaccine effectiveness over time and against the delta vary. So what we're seeing is a very time dependent slope where the longer ago you were vaccinated. The less effective. Your vaccine is right which leads us to today right. So the fda having this big hearing what is the purpose of it like what does the question that these folks are going to be here to answer so today. There's going to be an fda hearing it's actually the fda's independent advisory committee is. Is this vaccine not doing what it's supposed to do. This is an independent group and they basically give advice to the fda about what the fda potentially should do so if the companies were the fda can make a case that there has been an erosion protection against severe critical disease and the data erosion and protect against disease would be mediated or eliminated by a third dose them. We could move forward but today we really need to see those data to be able to make that decision on after afghan can either take or not. Take that advice now. The question that's being put in front of that advisory committee today is whether or not we should approve. A booster shot for the pfizer vaccine. It's just pfizer. Were not talking about.

"On wednesday. The president's top covert advisors cited a few early studies to make the case for boosters from new york from nursing homes from the mayo clinic. Plus there was some data from israel. I see two things. I i see a few canaries in the coal mine. I do see that. The is Specially from based on the us data. There is a diminishing of effectiveness against mild moderate disease. Here's michelle will get. The director of the centers for disease control and prevention on wednesday talking about a mayoclinic analysis of more than eighty thousand vaccinated and unvaccinated. People like we saw in the new york. Dana vaccine effectiveness against infection declined over time. In this case from seventy six percent to forty two percents for those who receive the pfizer vaccine and from eighty six percent to seventy six percents for those who receive. The madonna vaccine are also see that things seem to be holding up against severe disease including hospitalization. More or less which seems great but seems quick which is good. The other thing i see is whenever things are that nuanced. I want to see the whole ishii be process unfold. Who needs the advisory committee on immunization practices. It's a group of fifteen outside advisers. Doctors nurses public health specialists. Who make recommendations to the cdc on vaccines on cova. Yes but on other things too and the committee has a standard deliberative process. That anyone you were me can log on and watch the encouraging thing and something that got lost in a lot of coverage was that the actual verdon of things that came out yesterday was that they are doing this for planning purposes to start with september twentieth bending authorization from fda and bending the advisory committee on immunization practices review. So i as a scientist. I had weighed for the review because things are that nuanced.

"Last year. An important group of doctors started meeting online the vaccines and related biological products advisory committee into mouthful. The group evaluates vaccines and advises the fda. The agency doesn't have to do what these doctors recommend. But it often does are like you add my welcome to this one hundred sixty second meeting vaccine related biological advisory committee of the fda last year. The committee started looking at the cova. Vaccines beginning with pfizer. We have one cat at of us today and that is to discuss and vote on the emergency use authorization of the pfizer buying check ovid nineteen vaccine for the prevent the whole thing and the public record. If you listen to their meetings you can hear the doctors ask the company representatives all sorts of questions about the vaccines mechanisms reactions. Who was included in clinical trials. Thank you dr manteo. My question is provider and it relates to the recruitment of minorities into the study. My understanding is that the minorities were recruited fairly late in the process. Do we have an adequate Follow up to the to that group compared to the majority of participants at the end of the big meetings. There were three one for each vaccine. The panel voted in favor of emergency. Use authorizations they said the benefits of these vaccines outweigh the risks shortly thereafter. The fda granted the eu.

World Video Game Hall of Fame: Everything You Need to Know

"To kick things off just like sports, rock n roll W W E and TOYS. Even the video games have their own Hall of Fame. Now, the method of selection of Hall of Fame or the Games is a little bit unique compared to other halls of fame, so we turn to Robbie Landers. To give us some info on the video Game Hall of Fame. Yeah, so a little bit of info about the video game of the Hall of Fame processes. It's actually the strong National Museum of Play, which is located in Rochester, New York, and over there. Unfortunately, yes. So a few years ago, they decided to to to to basically start the video game Hall of Fame within the strong museum here. So, uh, Give an idea of how their how how games are nominated. How you get to be within the Hall of Fame is anybody can actually sort of, you know, suggest or nominate a video game by sending an email email them and say, Hey, I think Mario Brothers, too, should be in the vision of all the things you could be the guy you could be the one to do that. But then it goes through through a few different things. Such the player's choice ballot. So you know gamers do actually get to vote throughout the year. You know in in certain instances, help move that along. But there is actually an international selection advisory committee that they That's composed of journalists, scholars and other individuals, Indwelling nerds who are familiar with his former basement willingness with the history of sort of video games and the role that they play in society, right. So to give you an idea, you can't just be like I I vote for this and let's look at how much money did it make to go in. There's actually a few specific criteria. This is where things start to get a bit more academic so Are four major points that they look at when deciding if a game could be or should be inducting the video Game Hall of Fame. The first is its icon status. Is this a game that is widely recognized and remembered. So Mario Brothers to? Unfortunately, don't think Is in there. I think that there's too many. I think you that's a true state. I can't argue that all right? Yes, Longevity. The game is more than a passing fad and enjoyed popularity over time. Sorry, fall guys.

Backstory: FDA Approval of First Alzheimer's Drug is Mired in Controversy

"Let's move this and talk about treatment for another health challenge. Alzheimer's shares of biogen are up forty percent in the month of june. Because the fda approved biogen's drug to treat alzheimer's this is the first medication aimed at slowing cognitive decline. For people with alzheimer's that regulators have approved and yet it is not without controversy. Three members of the fda advisory panel resigned over the decision. There are a couple of threads to get to here. But i guess my first question is what is going on here is like. Was this a mistake to green. Light this treatment. Well a chris. I call this nearly biotech soap opera. You can even bring in greek mythology here. first of all biogen's drug is like the mythical phoenix it. Literally rose from the ashes. I mean this was a drug that not all that long ago had been relegated to the trash heap seemingly failing late stage clinical studies badgen later came back and did some further analysis and analysis and they said hey you know we. We actually see that. There's a potential here and they they pursued and then ultimately did file for fda approval and ultimately won. But you're right it's extremely extremely controversial. The fda's advisory committee that was convened to review. The data came back and voted ten against recommending approval. One abstention no member of that committee voted in favor of this drug being approved. They thought that another clinical study needed to be conducted to to establish that the drug was actually effective. And so and and not even just that several members of the committee wrote op eds publicly urging the fda not to go ahead and approve. Distract the fda. Did it anyway. And so it's extremely

"Today. I think really take this week on reading. The the fda tea leaves of drug approved ability. We'll thank you. Say but yeah. I think you know we are basically on the eve of what is expected to be. This momentous decision by the fda on canyon have the controversial alzheimer's disease treatment from biogen and because there isn't really much to do in terms of trying to predict that decision. There isn't much information to pick apart. I think people you know resort to to what we all would which is maybe not quite tinfoil hat but we look at whatever evidence there is and try to construct a take and so for months. I think there's been this. Focus especially in the investor community on parsing each individual. Fda decision for clues as to some sort of like meta take on how the agency is thinking about new drugs. Yeah i mean you know. There's this idea right like you know is the fda being more conservative would drag approvals. Is it being more flexible. Which approvals right and it has come to feel a little bit absurd so if there's a run of as there were a few months ago surprising decisions whether it be Rejections or you know. Advisory committee hearings called where they weren't previously expected then. Suddenly the vibe is oh well. They're really cracking down. And then recently we had to Drug approvals in consecutive weeks. That came through. Let's say favorably to the drug companies and sort of undramatically so then the vibes us the fda in fact. They've kind of taken their foot off the brake when it comes to this and i think you know everybody probably knows this. But the is comprised of thousands of people And even the drug review arm is separated into individual fiefdoms focused on you know different aspects of biology and science and types of drugs etc and each one has its own internal politics. Each one has its own personnel changes in its own kind of regulatory philosophy. It's different between cancer than it is from neuroscience for example and so i guess it's one of those things where reading these tea leaves has kind of maybe run out of clues to offer us and maybe we should all just kind of respected. It's a giant organization and we are on the outside of it.

Scherer we'll scientist at the fda have been reviewing the clinical trial data that included more than two thousand kids and it appears to be all positive children in this age. Group develop a lot of antibodies. They have very mild side effects and pfizer says older participants in the trial will continue to be monitored for long term protection and safety for an additional two years got it so as far as efficacy and side effects are concerned it's basically affecting them just like it as adults. Yeah pretty much so. I spoke to patricia stench field. She is a nonvoting member of. Cdc's advisory committee on immunization practices. This is the group that makes recommendations she says from what's been released so far. The vaccine appears to be very effective than this age. Group seems to be one hundred percent effective. No child in the study. How on that. Twelve to fifteen year old. Adolescence got kobe. Very few kids. Got a fever. Many had arm pain just like adults and stints field says the benefits seemed too far outweigh any risks. That's kind of incredible one hundred percent effective right. And that's what was shown in the trial setting now in the real world. We might come to find out. Isn't one hundred percent but certainly early suggests it's very very effective but it appears that some parents are hesitant to get this vaccine for their kids. Right yes a recent survey from the kaiser family foundation found only three in ten parents of children in this age groups they would they would get their child vaccinated as soon as the vaccine is available. Many say they'll wait now. I spoke to dr li beers about this. She's the president of the american academy of pediatrics. She says she's not surprised that there's hesitancy out there. And she says pediatricians are going to be working really hard in the coming weeks and months to reassure parents and help answer questions.

So i just give us a brief overview about what's going on with these blood clots that have been seen so far connected to the johnson and johnson. Vaccine the united states Through the centers for disease control and prevention sets up a vaccine safety surveillance and this is happening with all axons all covid vaccines but all other vaccines that are in use in the united states. And what happened. Is that through that surveillance system. They heard reports of a six women between the ages of eighteen and forty eight who had developed a severe blood clots in the brain of six days to about fourteen days after receiving the vaccine. And this is exactly what this surveillance system is meant to detect. Now people need to know that just because something is occurring after vaccination an adverse event like this. It doesn't necessarily mean it's being caused by the vaccine and so what's happening right now. Is that the advisory committee on immunization practices met to discuss these six cases we subsequently learned about two additional people one woman and one man who had a similar types of blood clots and the trick is to try to understand what's happening it requires careful investigation of these individual cases to try to see if they're really linked to the vaccine or not

"The Canadian National Advisory Committee. I didn't know there was such a thing, but they are the National Advisor Committee for Immunization and they've made a recommendation. They should prioritize race over age. When it comes to Covert vaccinations. Tony Katz, Tony Cats today I don't live in Canada and my life is better for it. 833 got Tony 8334688669. Uh, this is the quote or or our paraphrasing that adults in radicalized and marginalized communities are in line to receive the vaccine before adult with underlying medical conditions at high risk of severe illness from covered 19. This might end up playing in a different way. But we have seen this type of conversation before. In this type of conversation. Is one that asks what matters more science. You're feeling it. What matters more. Now I am a believer. That when we take a look That covered. The only answer should be science when it was first announced, and that what you would have is the older generations being vaccinated. First, I asked the question. Tell me about the science behind it. Right, because I could ask the question not knowing but Justin in the standard curiosity. If the disease is more spread by younger people, even though they're less likely to get sick from it. Wouldn't you want to inoculate them so it doesn't spread to older people in the answer is no. You want to make sure that older people are as protected as possible, and then you could still engage the separation between them and people who are more more likely to have come into contact with somebody who has it. I said okay. Then there was a moral component of it. You don't tell on Belle Jolie generation? Yeah, you come last, right? I said okay, that zit interesting way to look at it, too. I understood the science and there's of course, morality conversation and I get it. We should inoculate people based on race because the older population is usually a whiter population, and therefore it's not okay. I'm sorry. I don't want to be around people who think like that. How anti science do you have to be? And you never be so anti science. You let boys participate in women's track. I mean, oh, that's too soon. Just the girls track would have lined up with boys. But you're with me. Science matters. Sometimes the race based nonsense is just race based nonsense. Science absolutely, positively matters. Speaking of science, Nancy Pelosi says there's going to be an independent commission to examine the capital riot, and I say good. I got no problem with an independent commission take a look into the riot. I want to know the role that Nancy Pelosi played in it. I want to know what was suggested in terms of security. That what was turned down by Speaker Pelosi what was turned down by the House sergeant of arms, what was turned down by the subject's Senate sergeant in arms, Both of them got fired and resigned. And I saved now. Mitch McConnell should not have allowed the resignation should have been fired. Let us take a look into what happened. We've asked the question here. You've got to ride at the Capitol and nobody's responding with force. What is this? Why not? They're American citizens. Stop it right there. It's the capital. I want to know. When there are riots in downtown Minneapolis. I wonder why people aren't responding with force. The capital, somehow different and to the same conversation going the other way. It's not more of a horrible thing because it happened at the Capitol. Don't tell the business owner of downtown Minneapolis that Oh, well. At least it wasn't the capital. That's all going on. I have no problem with this commission whatsoever is a question of what they're actually going to discuss in the same way I have said, and I mean it. I mean it. I don't think there was any reason to impeach Donald Trump regarding incitement of insurrection. Thought it was a despicable claim. It never had any basis of going forward. Never had any constitutionality to it. But where? What was Donald Trump doing when there was a riot? The capital is an absolutely acceptable question. And if you don't think it's an acceptable question, replace Donald Trump with Barack Obama and get back to me. That's how I know it's an acceptable question.

The same committee that recommended the fighter by on tech vaccine last week, is also in favor of a closely related product produced by Madonna. Vaccines, both used genetic material that guides the immune system to produce antibodies that protect people against the coronavirus. Both vaccines are apparently safe and highly effective fighters vaccines started shipping out Monday. Madonna has 20 million doses of its vaccine ready to go out by the end of the year. If the FDA follows this recommendation, some of that supply could ship out days later. The FDA doesn't have to follow the recommendations from its advisory committees. But it usually does. The FDA could act quickly to give this second vaccine a thumbs up. Richard Harris NPR news Negotiations are continuing in Congress on another coronavirus relief package. Democratic and Republican lawmakers have been saying they're close to an agreement, but issues remain on a proposal costing more than $900 billion. Package currently includes more than $300 billion in aid to small businesses and direct payments of $600 to individuals. It also includes expanded unemployment benefits an extra $300 per week. The package also helps pay for distribution of vaccines. Congressional negotiators are expected to work into the weekend.

"Total of more than 856,000 cases in Illinois. Over the last 24 hours. We unfortunately received notice of an additional 103 individuals who lost their battle with Cove it and that brings the total number of lives lost two more than 14,300. Overnight. 4951 individuals were reported to be in the hospital with covert 19. 1070 in the ICU and 621 individuals on ventilators. DPH director, Dr Zeke I was asked, How will people know if they are next to receive the vaccine? A lot of information is still yet to come. We're still waiting for the CDC advisory Committee on immunization practices to give us more detailed guidance on who exactly is in that next. Group. Right now, there's you know, we know that may be essential critical infrastructure workers, people over 65 people with multiple medical conditions. So getting clear instructions on who that next group is a soon as we have that information. We can share that with the public, and then we will on an ongoing basis that you know how we're doing with the group we're doing now, which is the individuals and the long term care settings. And the workers in the health care settings. So as we get finished with that, then we will let you know who is in that next group in that we're starting that next group. In some situations that will be providers who will be able to make some of those determinations. Some it might be where you will use your badge to certify that you're in this critical infrastructure work. It could be. Your badge That could tell us, you know the kind of work you do that you work with waste and sanitation and keeping our communities clean that you're an educator, etcetera. So again as we get there, we can't wait to get there. But we know that this current stage we're in is going to take quite a bit of time and we'll get you plenty of information before we get to the subsequent faces. The I d PhD director was also asked What was the purpose of staggering vaccinations for health care workers? There have been many provider Webinars and in services by the CDC, both all through the weekend, even several to day to go over that, and just to remind people have been made aware of that that you have to think about the potential for those side effects. So maybe you wouldn't take everybody on your Covert floor and do them all at that same time, in case you had a significant number of people that do need to take a day off that you wouldn't be without a workforce so that calculation has been done. I'm appreciating that that has been done by the hospital in terms of deciding who's getting the vaccine on day one who would get it on day two. Making sure that you spread it out between many different units just to protect the workforce for the patients that were in the hospital that continue to need their care while the staff is being immunized. Governor Pritzker talked about the CDC is a recommendation on the vaccine and pregnant women. The CDC has also recommended that pregnant women have a discussion with their doctor. Weighing the risk of taking the vaccine or waiting for more data on vaccine safety. A report from the CDC last month noted that pregnant women who get covert 19 are at increased risk for serious complications. Compared to non pregnant women of the same age, But we don't yet have data on.

"Here's the advisory Committee chair Arnold, Mont. Oh, Bug. Oh, good. I think I wasn't. I wasn't on it first. Thank you so much for Being clear about the differential impact of covert 19 in the U. S population. We have time for relatively few questions. I see Dr Meisner. Do you have your hand raised? Yes, sir. Thank you very much for that presentation, doctor home. I would like to ask you. Um, about the severity of disease, particularly in older adolescents. That is Individuals who are 16 and 17 years of age because they have been included in the company's request for anyway. Um I assume, I know. Assume it's unlikely that hospitalizations and disease are broken down by age. But is it safe to assume that adolescent to a 16 17 years of age? Are similar in the five Through 17 year old age group. Thank you for that question. So, of course, as we refined the smaller and smaller age brackets, the numbers get smaller, particularly in Children were overall we see no other way, particularly of severe disease of hospitalization. In general, we do see higher rates of hospitalization among Children age dear to five relative to those they tried to 17. Of course, this is potentially the confounded by differential rates of care seeking. As you might imagine, They're certainly lower threshold for care, seeking for the very youngest, most vulnerable Children. However, as we start to look at the more mild end of the spectrum, Andre look at rates of detection of source could be two virus using molecular abscesses. Reducing indication of higher rates of infection among older Children among adolescents, particularly then, as we move into older teenagers and people in their young twenties. On. Much of this may have been driven in part by outbreak from the fall among institutes of higher education. But the broader impacts in Children perhaps, or not entirely clear until the full resumption of normal activities in Susan, the United States, including in person education. Across all schools in the United States. We'll continue to monitor closely. But thus far, the indication is the highest rates of illness, severe illness in young Children but higher rates of infection in older Children. Thank you. Dr Rubin. Next up the hall. I was interested in the In the multiplier that you describe that applies to the diagnosis of infection. Do you think that applies to death as well? Yeah, So we have used the CDC, the same multiplier model previously for tracking influenza on degenerating in season estimates of the disease burden. And that same approach has been used previously to estimate the deaths in the same manner that represented today for hospitalizations and milder illness. There, of course differential multipliers that would have to be considered for death as the rates of under reporting of death are different than those for milder infection. In general, we have better capture of death. We have lower rates of under reporting and under ascertainment for death. But as folks are aware the dynamics of the pandemic itself have greatly changed those multipliers. And so there's also a considerable time component that needs to be Factored in when using his multiplier models. So the under reporting of death, for example, has changed over time and the attribution of death to coat the 19 has changed over time, which complicates interpretation. But we do have several efforts underway using these models and other approaches to generate estimates of death, and we do feel as with hospitalizations and illnesses. At the reported number of deaths is likely an underestimate the true number of deaths. Thank you. Thank you. Ah! Dr Hans. We're going to go over a little bit. But please keep your questions, George. Thank you very much. Thank you for that, and I agree, heroic effort to all of the people who are working on this. I had to quit questions. The data concerning the immuno compromised her and, you know, suppressed individuals. That's not really great healer, not to make it something that we can use in terms of how we're thinking about. On high with populations. There are registries looking at this, but it would be nice that there was a national in information that you could provide to us as well as I didn't see any information from pregnant women, which is population which we're all concerned about. And we definitely seen post natal transmission to the very gun infant to end up being hot. Alive if you can take those up Thank you for those comments. Absolutely. There are numerous surveillance efforts currently underway to assess the impact of Coke in 19 and pregnant women in the interest of time. Unfortunately, today I didn't have a chance to present those but I'm through covert met as described today, as well as another surveillance system called Set Mint, which was established during the Zika epidemic. We have been very closely monitoring the impacts of carbon 19 in both pregnant women and subsequently following up with their infants. Thankfully, the rates of role have been relatively low thus far. But as we continue to accumulate a critical mass of data in this demographic, we indeed do hope to have more specific estimates of the risks that are opposed to pregnant women and their infants. The early indication is that there may be a risk higher risk of preterm delivery among pregnant women infected with Kogan 19 relative, Tonto women without covered 19. But there's ongoing efforts to assess those and other potential pregnancy related risks and feel that comes.

"Yeah. Hi, Kathleen. You're right. This is this is the advisory committee. So we're awaiting the vote for the official decision from the FDA for the emergency use. The vote Pretty conclusive in the committee, Michelle Cortez says there were questions but nothing that should rise the level of stopping any kind of approval. There hasn't been anything that might derail the recommendation or the emergency use authorization from the FDA. Only there were some issues raised about how they're going to track these volunteers overtime to make sure that no side effects emerge in the weeks and months after vaccination. There were concerns raised about potential severe reactions in people who have allergies. And there was a couple of other questions. The reason why we didn't get a unanimous vote. Many people expect is because of the age range that they were talking about. The vote was on people aged 16 and older. We have almost no data on 16 and 17 year old. I listen to that for quite a while, and that seemed to be the major hang up there on so they say, shouldn't slow it down for adult FDA Director Dr Stephen Hahn says approval then could be Well, it could be any minute or it could be a few days. I have 100% confidence and I think the American public should as well with respect to our review of the safety and efficacy of the vaccines. Yeah, And as that approval happens, he says, CDC and warp speed will then roll out and get things moving. We've talked them about what our process will be. And when our decision is made, we will let them know and We would expect that, although we're not in charge of distribution, and FDA would expect that to happen very shortly thereafter, Esso waiting for the FDA best guest tomorrow or Saturday, and part of the process will then be to convince people to get inoculated.

"79 degrees and Santa Monica from NPR news. This is all things considered. I'm Ari Shapiro in Washington, D C and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles. There are quote no specific safety concerns identified that would preclude issuance of an E U. A That's the finding of the Food and Drug Administration on Phasers Cove in 19 vaccine. The announcement comes a little more than two days before an FDA advisory panel will meet to determine whether or not the vaccine can be authorized for emergency use. Dr Stephen Han is the head of the FDA. He joins us now welcome back to all things considered. Well, thank you out, said Z happy to be here and happy to answer questions today about this really important topic. Very glad to hear that so This analysis that you released this morning also confirms what Fizer has been reporting. Which is that this vaccine is 95% effective after two doses. Let me ask you how quickly do you think the FDA can make a decision about emergency use authorization? So we've been really clear about our process. We, of course, had done the scientific review since the application's been in our hands on November 20th and the conclusions that you just read. Are formed by our career scientists who look very detailed in a detailed way of the safety but also the efficacy of the vaccine. They do their own analysis look at sub groups of patients. Look at immunity of levels. If you will. After one versus two doses of this to dose regimen on Ben, they come to their conclusions on so That is very, very important part of our promised the American people that we won't cut corners and how we assess the safety and effectiveness of the vaccine. So how much time do you think it would take teammate an assessment about emergency use authorization. This will then go to the Vaccine Advisory Committee on beer, expecting a good discussion there of the data. That we're presenting to them. And then we believe shortly after that meeting will be able to make a decision. Also, a lot of what this depends upon is what the discussion is like thieves outside experts from the Vaccine Advisory committee if they had substantial questions or additional analyses that they think are relevant to our decision making We will judge whether that's important to do that may need to be done and that may contribute to some additional time needed but again can't prejudge what that conversation is going to be a lot going to be going to be like or what is going to be raped. Okay, Well, tell me as more than 40% of Americans right now are expressing reluctance to get vaccinated, at least according to polling. How important is this to get this right? It is critically important, Elsa that we get this right. That was the reason that we've been transparent about the criteria we were used. It's why we have stringent criteria that are very similar. What we would use for a regular approval called biological license application, and so following our processing process, giving our scientists the time to review the data having the outside experts give US recommendations. The vaccine Advisor committee. In our opinion. Not only is this the right thing to do to get the decision right? It's the right thing to do in terms of transparency and confidence. That said the approval process for this vaccine is moving faster than Any other in memory. You have made adjustments to the review process to try to guarantee safety. But ultimately you only have a few months of data. So does that shortened timeline concern you in any way so two months follow up data was required from a safety perspective. Remember also that we have data from the phase one and phase two clinical trials that were performed in the spring and the summer. That gives us additional information about the vaccine particular with respect to safety, But one of the reasons that we chose the two month period because our data and of the state in the literature suggests that the overwhelming amount of side effects That that time period captures the overwhelming a number of side effects that might be seen, but also really important for the American public to know, regardless of the medical product, whether it's this vaccine or any other medical products, we will always have a monitoring that occurred after an authorization so that if there are additional data that come in that we need to know about particularly around side effects, but also efficacy. We can incorporate that into our decision. What about what about What about long term side effects? How can you be sure that there are no long term side effects from this vaccine, with only a few months or several months of data? So even if you look at other vaccine approvals, the normal approval process we can, as with any medical products, never 100% predict long term side effects. That's why we have Vigorous post authorization process for assessing both safety and effectiveness. So I want to be really clear with the American people. This is expedited. We're not cutting corners in terms of our assessment, but we know that the work isn't done. If there's an authorization, that's upcoming, we have to continue to monitor and to have surveillance. We also need to bounce. This is an important balance. We know that people are dying of covert 19 and that prevention of covert 19. If the data supported is likewise of very important things. The very important measure that needs to be instituted in the vaccine can help us with that, potentially if it's authorized Finally, I just want to touch upon this President. Trump has made all of this very political, not least of which by saying that positive data about the vaccines was withheld until after Election Day. I'm curious. How do comments like that this politicized atmosphere that you're all working under? How does that affect your ability to do your job? Well, I'm also just so proud of our agency 17,000 plus employees, great scientists, doctors, nurses, pharmacists, we have been And will continue to remain primarily focused on getting the job done for the American people..

What operation works being has taken every single piece of that equation from the beginning until now, and then everything to lower any obstacle, so there's no time and space between things moving forward. If there was a short full of supply operation works, speed helped Eo improve it. They've helped to make those clinical trials go is fast as possible, but again, not not sacrificing size and scope for me. Part of me that I have confidence in these vaccines is because I have confidence in the process that's from somebody who really understands the process. So these clinical trials are the same size and scope of any trial that goes on in vaccines in the United States. The vaccine trial has been overseen by an independent route of experts that's called data safety monitoring more They're the first ones that see the clinical trial data.

"advisory committee" Discussed on WNYC 93.9 FM

"From NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly. And I'm Ari Shapiro. How do you distribute a corona virus vaccine to millions of Americans who may be suspicious of authority or on the fringes of society. Especially when those people are among those most at risk of covert 19. Dr. Julie Morita has been thinking and writing about these problems for months as Chicago's former health commissioner, and now she'll have an opportunity to shape these policies on a national level as part of President elect Biden's covert response, team Doctor Marina Welcome to all things considered. Thanks for having me, Ari. Well, let's start with this question of how you build confidence in a vaccine when there is so much suspicion and disinformation circulating. What do you think needs to be done right now, even before vaccine is widely available to the public. I think it's really important for people to have ah, sense of what's happening and what's been done so far so very clear and concise and consistent messaging about the vaccine development process. Venture manufacturing process. The approval process is So that people have a sense that we're not doing this blindly that The vaccine development that's happened with the co of vaccine has been fast, but it's built on decades and decades of experience in making vaccines and distributing vaccines as well. When you're Chicago's chief medical officer, you were involved in distribution of the H one n one vaccine around the city. What did that experience teach you about how to address hesitation, especially And marginalized communities. And are there lessons there that you think the incoming by the administration can apply nationally? I think we learned a lot of lessons through the H one n one pandemic in 2009. We were working frantically to get vaccine providers lined up to actually make the vaccine available, and we also hosted vaccine clinics and communities that are typically underserved. The weather physician accesses a little bit more challenging. And what we found was that these mass immunization clinics that we hosted in some of our communities of color. The turnout for the vaccines was lower. And so at that point we started reaching out to community organizations, Faith based organizations to have them help us understand what was going on in the community. Why weren't they turning out for the vaccine? Why weren't they getting vaccinated? It would have helped US organizations that are already in touch with members of that community. Right. So we were we had organization that we were already partnering with. We reached out to them and ask them to engage with us again, and it worked to some extent, but without we didn't get the success that we were hoping for, and so building on that experience in non pandemic times, the Health Department and our partners worked established relationships on ongoing time. Between pandemic so that we would actually have these relationships and could really rely on the information from those community groups to inform our planning for future pandemics. The current health department is actually tapping into in relying on those relationships now to really help to get the information to the communities and understand what their questions and their concerns are. Interesting, But let me ask. There are real questions about vaccine safety. I mean yesterday, the CDC Immunization Advisory Committee recommended to give the first round of vaccines to health care workers and residents of long term care facilities. But there has not been a lot of research into the effectiveness of the vaccine and the safety of the vaccine in the nursing home population. How can experts be sure that it is safe for them? So the information is being evaluated, but it will be evaluated by FDA to look at the safety and efficacy to understand who the study populations included. Information that I've seen so far suggested the vaccines how are safe and effective in a wide range of age groups, a wide range of races and ethnicity and someone that information's fully evaluated by the FDA is advisory committee. Next week. We'll have additional information to really inform the recommendations with CDC or the C I. P did yesterday was really make recommendations in anticipation of these results. But they can be refined based on what the FDA and their advisory committee actually determined. Now the CDC is reputation has taken a hit during this pandemic. Guidance on testing and school re openings has sometimes been influenced by political pressure. So how do you think a new administration can restore confidence in the agency? So I think one of these like when I think about the vaccines situation currently, the key thing to keep in mind is that the E C. I P is not. It's the independent group of physicians, scientists, public health officials who come together and really review the data River to review the facts, review The evidence and the makeup, eventually Advisory Committee that's the advisory committee and they make recommendations to CDC. And then CDC that makes recommendations and buy a large those recommendations of the pipe makes the CDC usually fit makes us well. And so we'd be looking for after the recommendations are made by a CFP. What a CDC actually say is their alignment. Is there agreement with what A C I P s saying as well. Now, as you know, distribution of the vaccine is going to be handled by the states. And a couple weeks ago, I spoke with the head of Maine's Center for Disease Control and Prevention, Dr Nirav Shah, and he told me his state does not have enough money to build the infrastructure required to make sure everybody who needs it gets the vaccine. Here's what he said. We at the state level are ready to receive the baton to have that baton pass to us to begin the vaccination process, but without proper funding. It'll be like putting up a tent poles without having the tent. And he said, This is true of many other states, too. So Dr Marie to do you think the federal government is ready to provide the money that is going to be necessary? I think it's important to provide the adequate resources to public health What I've seen in the past in public health emergencies during my 10 20 years, the Chicago Department of Public Health Was that there would be large Pulis's of funding that would come to public health agencies of the state and local level during a crisis and then shortly after the crisis, But then the funding would actually go away. And so public health infrastructure really has suffered over time, and there is a need There's a strong immunization system that's in place, but it has to be enhanced that it has to be strengthened so that actually, people can actually get the vaccine in an equitable fashion. That's Dr Julie Morita. She is executive vice president of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, which is a thunder of NPR. Today. She was speaking with us in her personal capacity as a volunteer for the Biden transition Teams. Coben 19 Advisory board. Dr Morita. Thanks for your time. Thank you. President Trump has soured on Fox News since it called the election for Joe Biden. Well, Trump might find right wing media outlets and Eastern Europe more to his liking. They are echoing his baseless claims of a rigged election and is Joanna Cacace reports adapting them to advance their own political agenda. Thistles.

"Helps advise the FDA on these vaccines. He'll be taking a look at these and doctor your reaction to this news, especially the 100% effective in preventing serious cases. It's remarkable, and I mean, still, we're in an age of science by press release, so it will be important to see all the data. But if you look at these top line findings, it's amazing. Yeah, well, let's remind people back in July, Madonna gave 15,000 volunteers their vaccine. The other 15,000 in the trial. Got a placebo. They're saying of those who got the placebo. 185 developed the coronavirus. While only 11 who got their vaccine developed the coronavirus that comes out to the 94% efficacy, and it's reminder. First of all we thank these people enter trial's not knowing which they get. Some of those who got just the placebo. Not only got sick, some died, but 11 also got sick with the shot. So what questions? Will you have your on the panel that will review this That's it's the patients or the participants who got vaccine but still developed disease that often provide the most useful information. Why was that? What was the story with those 11 cases? Did they not to the open, adequate immune response. Or were they more likely to be older where they're more likely to have various medical coma abilities? Why is it that they got disease even though they got back something? Tell us some more of the questions that you will have Well, you want to make sure that this experiment this huge, you know, 30,000 person experiment reflects the general population. In other words, if you look, for example, 2% of people in the placebo group that got sick. It was about 1% of the placebo group, which was surprisingly well. I mean, why would that be true? Why would you would expect to have been more like 3 3.5%. One possibility would be that the people the kind of people that participate in these trials, or, more likely, Saito wear masks or more likely to physically distance and therefore possibly more likely to be exposed to a lesser inoculate the virus. So that that's for example, one question, but, you know, frankly, it's hard to look a gift horse in the mouth at this point. I mean, if you if you ask the 1000 scientists a year ago, when, when the publication Science published the gene sequences, fires of US 2000 scientists In 11 months we're gonna have completed essentially two large trials of message or in a vaccine of 30,000 people in 44,000 people where the efficacy was around 95%, including against severe disease, including in people greater than 65. Years of age. What do you think the chances of that are? I think that you wouldn't have found One scientist who would have thought this was possible. So it certainly looks good. So far, any other questions that you had briefly You know, it's interesting that Fizer when they put out their press release, made it very clear that the vaccine was 94% effective and adults greater than or equal to 65 years of age Madonna in their press releases. Um, hasn't said anything specifically about what the effectiveness was in that age group in the most recent press release, they say that efficacy was consistent across age, but consistent with loose word. And you wonder exactly what the efficacy was in those greater than 65 would be nice if they had given you the breakdown and told you exactly Who in those over 65 years of age that we're sick. We're in the vaccine group. And who in those over 65 who were sick. We're in the placebo group. Yeah, the other things we know the vaccines were given in two doses a few weeks apart. They can cause side effects. Fever body aches for a couple days. The FDA is going to meet with the advisory committee on December 10th Review fighters application in December. 17th to review modernists. As you said, right now, this is, you know, announcement by press release. You guys are all going to get in and really take a closer look. What is your sense right now of how close we are to people actually getting this vaccine very close. I mean, it is possible that by frankly the end of December that you could start to see those first line groups getting vaccine people who were essential workers either in health care elsewhere, people over 65 people have certain iris medical conditions that could all possibly happen. As early as the end of December. It's possible and in the CDC is going to be making that determination as more doses are manufactured right now, you know there there aren't as many as will be needed for the whole population. But you know, the pressure is on you guys. We is one of the things you're gonna be thinking. Are you strictly a scientist when you're taking a look? Are you also thinking would I want my family to take this? That's exactly what you think. I mean, when I was a voting member on the advisory Committee for Immunization Practices for now is a voting member of the FDA AIDS Vaccine Advisory Committee. We hold these vaccines to one standard. Would we take them ourselves where we give them around family? And then and only then will we recommend that for other people's families Instructor fall off it, director of the Vaccine Education Center at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia and advisor to the FDA and vaccines. As we've been saying, talking about the latest news, Moderna Requesting emergency approval today from the FDA, So they're now in line to get vetted. Dr. Often, thanks so much. Thank you. And you're listening to hear now. Many Americans who've lost income in the pandemic are falling deeper into debt, forced to use credit cards to pay bills or even their rent..

"Something else is knocking on the door of vaccine for covert 19. At least that's what we've been hearing anyway. So we thought we'd check in with an expertise billing with us before and we appreciate his insight for checking in with Dr Dean Fanelli this morning, and Doc Spinelli, How are you this morning? Hope you're having a great had a great Thanksgiving season. Idea. Thank you. They'll get to join you. Well, hopefully we're going to talk a little bit about some good news coming up. Now We've been hearing all this news swirling about a vaccine. It's gonna be it's gonna be it's gonna be. When is it gonna be and one of the odds of you getting approved? I know they're going to be meeting in a couple of weeks to talk about this with the FDA. Yes. So it looks like visors Vaccine candidate was submitted for emergency use authorization, which is not a full license insured by the FDA, But mama less that'll get the vaccine out to high risk people and Potentially those in the health care industry, and it looks like Thies. Advisory Committee will meet sometime next week and we could see approval immediately after that, so we could see by the middle of next week vaccine approved and being administered to health care workers and potentially Those a nursing home and other individuals that are very high risk. Now with this defies the vaccine is out there. But there are there are two others that are also competing for this. Yeah, they're they're third leading candidates advisers. Obviously the one that's further Salaam. Modern is a second vaccine. That's also very close. We could see a second approval. This year's from Madonna and the two others are Johnson and Johnson and AstraZeneca. So what does this mean? Then they get emergency approval and well that speed approval for the rest of us after they see how it goes with those front line workers. Yeah, So that's exactly right. So as these wants emergency use authorization is approved. We'll see healthcare workers being administered the vaccine and you know we're going to need multiple vaccines to get through this, So it's not gonna be one on Lee. It's a great thing that we have, you know, four that are leading to that would be on Out to individuals before the end of the year. So potentially, you're talking about health care workers, essential personnel, those at high risk being first administered and that would probably take us You know, sometimes through Q one of 2021. Then you could imagine the general public starting to see vaccines available to them by, you know, end of Cuban beginning of que Tu 2021. Guess this morning, Dr Dean Finelli, who has 20 years of experience in pharmaceutical, biotech and what it did tap on your expertise. This is last time you're on we were talking about. This is unprecedented. How quickly this has come to market. Obviously, the government put a little pressure on and folks wanted to get there, and these companies wanted to be there because the need is great. Eyes this something that will see in the future as far as an accelerated pace. Will we be streamlining this process? Well, certainly this is unprecedented, and, you know, hopefully this could be to quicker interaction with the FDA. But, you know, certainly the interaction that's currently going on. And how quickly these candidates are moving through The FDA and through the regulatory process is unprecedented that I would You know, it's very unlikely. We see another situation like this that we have so many companies. You know, if you think there's over 200 vaccine candidates being developed typically, you know you may have a handful of companies going after a target. So really, we're in an unprecedented situation that I don't foresee that will have a similar situation with things moving so quickly, but Like I said, Hopefully, this could inspire the FDA and companies to maybe interact a little quicker to get some life saving drugs on the market quicker. Have you heard any any Because we've heard some reports and you know I'm never sure quite which way to believe. Sometimes I hate to be that way. But quite honestly, we hear a lot of things going in three different directions. But what is what have you heard? If you heard any any buzz, as if this is released to the general public coming in in April or may Going into the summer of how? How quickly could we see life sort of go back to normal? Is this going to allow us to come out of our caves? Yeah, That's a great point. And, you know, look, there's a lot of skepticism out there. This has become very politicized. But, you know, realistically, if things continue to go with the piece they're going and in the direction they're going with. You know, having to approved before the other than your authorized before the end of this year and potentially another two coming on the market next year, we could see you know, sometime the end of next summer. Ah, feeling where you know, we have a couple 100, million people vaccinated and You know, we're sorry. This seat signs of, you know, getting back to normal. That would be great. That would be the I'll wait for that Christmas gift. Whenever it comes. I'll be glad to open that one for sure. And real quickly here. The efficacy we've talked about is between the 1995 percentile. Is that normal is I don't I always think of if you get a vaccine that is 100% going to protect you, But is that a normal thing? No, that's that's really not, you know. So if you think about, you know highly contagious diseases like measles, that vaccine is around 95% of that needs to be because it's so contagious, But you know when you think about the normal flu vaccine that's typically 40 to 60%. So, the FDA said guidance for Wanted at least 50% efficacy over the summer. Now, seeing 90 and 95% is really great news and but a typical Well, glad. Glad that it is a typical in a good direction because this year has been a typical and everything but a good directions. Absolutely, Dr Fanelli. If we want to find out more and keep up with this any way we could do that or their sources out there. I'm an attorney. The state will show people could look me up. It's safe for us s e y. E s a r th calm. I'm very good. In the meantime, hope you have a great day. We'll be checking back with you. As this gets approved, he gets out there. Just kind of get your feeling how things were going, okay? My pleasure. Thank you for being with us where it's 6 51 You deal.

"To really look at the data will be an independent advisory committee that I look at the data and you know that there's a really important check. To make sure that we're dealing with an effective vaccine for the population. The good news is, though, that The company's already started making the vaccine, so it's not like he's typically You might wait to see the review of the data, and then you start making it for in quantity, but The company's here and the other companies to they're making vaccine so that if it turned out that I work, you know they have it right away. And so the company is projecting maybe 10 million doses by the end of the year, which is It seems like a lot, but of course it's not. Enough for you know the world or the United States, but it's a pretty good start. It's not $10 million in two years from now, you know, I've really been working very hard to get this going and so Create, you know the opportunity. The other, You know, Part of the good news here is that Protein. That is the target of that, You know, it's sort of The key aspect of the vaccine is also Targeted by other back so I think there's some optimism that if this vaccine works that the other vaccines mature in late age, clinical trials will also work And that will mean we're not just dealing with scaling up one back, Dean, but maybe a number of vaccines which hopefully all will be very effective. Great. And as you said, we need to get through all the safety steps to make sure that I mean key to this is people who want to take it and I do wonder the more that we explain. I mean, there are people who are just anti vaccinations, and that's kind of a group that has felt that way before, Kobe. But there are people who I think, because we've seen this process politicized. That it's it's made people a bit nervous about taking it. You know what confidence do you have in terms of the steps that are being taken on a safety level that ultimately the vaccines, vaccines that are out on the market will be safe ones and ones that should be taken. By all Americans or those that you know, as many as that can can be. Well, I think the Food and Drug Administration put out some very reasonable standards for safety. And that's why the company is still collecting data for safety to really make sure they're at least Couple months of very good safety data showing a very safe and you know, so that does Give me confidence, but it's also important to realize that vaccine We're going to be given to a lot of people on. There may be a different kind of safety signals that come up over time until it's just important to continue to monitor for safety and monitor for the data on effectiveness and be able to Adjust the vaccine program is that changes over time. If you have a very strong safety data at the beginning, it's going to be very helpful to saving lives. But you're still gonna need to keep an eye on safety. Even as the you know the number of cases come down. We're going to do some using comeback, but Justin about 40 seconds. Is there anything in terms of vaccines given to older people versus younger people? Is there any difference in terms of the safety or the ability for an individual to to deal with it? Does that have anything to do with the age? That's a great question. And that's one of the reasons that the data really carefully to look to see if there's a difference by age on there haven't been child Children yet. But do you know People, younger adults versus older adults. It's a really important question, because the older adults are really at risk for serious att, the highest rates for serious illness and death.

"New plan from an advisory committee to the interior department has outlined proposals that critics say would dramatically change the face of our national parks by commercializing them if the proposal is passed we may see national parks with wifi and food trucks and drastically higher entrance fees the plan is just one example of the major policy changes the trump administration has proposed through with interior department give me to buy is a contributor for the guardian and the nation has been following the shifts in the agency and I asked him to start by breaking down exactly what this department does the inter department is an incredibly powerful agency it employs roughly seventy thousand people it controls almost five hundred million acres of land across the country that's about one fifth of the U. S. land mass it manages vast reserves of oil and gas other precious minerals as well as the outer continental shelf it runs dams across the west it's the prime and force of the Endangered Species Act and a recent federal study found that roughly a quarter of greenhouse gas emissions in the United States derive from fossil fuels their drilled on federal lands who's running the agency right now and where do many of the folks who work there come from the trump administration has stocked the agency with former lobbyists and conservative activists and ideologues you've got David Byrne heart the current interior secretary he's a former lobbyist for big gag and the oil and gas industry you've got his closest personal friend and lieutenant Assistant Secretary Doug Dominic who came from a cook brother funded think tank in Texas that fights environmental protections I've got William Perry and Lee who is a long time conservative activist who has fought in the courts against protections for public lands he's now overseeing the agency's bureau of land management so these are the sorts of folks that are there now people with long histories with industry and conservative activist groups now thanks to impart to your reporting here there are some members of the interior department that are under investigation from the inspector general's office what is that about the inter department inspector general is investigating allegations against no fewer than seven top officials at the agency mostly for ethical violations after they took office I'll give you an example Assistant Secretary John Dominic he used to work for this cobra other funded think tank in Texas as soon as he took office he started turning around and inviting his former employer into the agency putting them in touch with top officials providing them with access and that sort of activity is a pretty blatant violation of federal ethics rules there's been reporting recently that there was a proposal regarding the use of public lands and the idea of opening up those public lands to privatization tell us what that would do what does that exactly mean well among some quarters of the conservative movement there's long been a push to effectively privatised the public lands including national parks for instance there's a group in Montana called the property an environment research center that advocates for raising user fees and turning parks over to private operators to run and this group and others like them have had constant access to the inter department during this administration and so the inter department has has tried to adopt some of these policies very recently an advisory committee to the inter department put out a plan that would effectively privatize the parks in but in the hands of private companies it was a proposal this plan that came out this summer recommended that the park service hand more campgrounds to private companies allow them to raise fees I campgrounds and I think effectively what what they want to do is turn are protected public parks more into Disney world or Universal Studios place were commercial operators kind.
