"Rachelle Wilensky says You don't need to wear the mask if you're vaccinated. What does Barbara Ferrer know that they don't? Well, well, well. She's the fake doctor. Randi, so no if she, she's she doesn't know anything that they don't. She probably doesn't know things that they do know, unfortunately and she it's true. She's down position. She's not an epidemiologist. She's not virologist. You know, she's not infectious disease specialists. Uh and of course, we've talked about that forever. But, you know, I think she's recommending this because as usual You know, she is taking an abundance of caution and making it more abundant because, of course, if less is more than more is even more. So. This is this is the problem. But you know, that said that said, as long as they keep it Voluntary if it's a recommendation, and it never goes farther than that. Um, you know, I I don't think we need fret about it. If you're fully vaccinated, you should feel good about going out into the world. You could you catch Covid. Even if you're vaccinated you could and the delta variant is you know if they just noted an aggressive strain in terms of being contagious, but folks who have been vaccinated You know, there have been documented cases. They're uncommon, documented cases and the symptoms are basically you know, a milder version of covid. For those who aren't vaccinated and apparently sneezing. Excessive sneezing can be part of that picture. So if you find you're sneezing a lot more than you usually do. Of course, he's allow allergies can do the same thing as can other viruses. You know you might want to consider getting a covid test, especially if you have anybody at home. Who's immuno compromised or hasn't been vaccinated and has obesity, heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, any of the conditions that we do worry about for complications. We're speaking with Dr Nan Hayworth. If you have a question about the coronavirus about the masking about vaccines, anything in between 800 to 22 K. ABC is a phone number. In that same interview, Dr Fauci was asked by Lester Holt specifically about the Delta variant. Let's Listen. Is it a given in your opinion that the delta vary It will become the predominant variant in this country. And what does that mean for unvaccinated people? Well, it is very little doubt Lester that the that the Delta Variant is not going to become the dominant every country that it has gone into. Up to. Now, you've seen an escalation in cases where it's pushed aside. The variant that was dominant before it so particularly in those under vaccinated parts of the country. Almost certainly you are going to see the Delta variant takeover, which again I have to say it again. Lester. It's such an important imperative. Of why those regions those people need to get vaccinated to protect themselves to protect their community to protect their family. Doctor Nan 18 months into this pandemic is anybody getting covid classic anymore? Is it all variants? Well, it says. I mean, covid classic is it's been eclipsed by a few different variants. You know, the viruses are constantly, uh, changing in various ways. So, uh, you know, they're they're defined obviously, by you know, they have the same basic. Disease picture, But certainly some of these variants have been more successful at spreading among human beings and others. Um, but you know the extent to which Covid classic like as first discovered among us in early 2020. You know, I don't know exactly what the breakdown is at this point, but it did. But what Dr Fauci said was true that the delta variant rapidly gains in dominance wherever it goes, so you can expect it's going to go around the world. Um And you know I'm pro vaccine. No question about it. Certainly for adults and anybody who has any substantial risk factors. You're better off getting the vaccine, then not getting it. I think we're a lot of folks you know. And Randy, you know this. A lot of folks are Concerned about the need for kids to get the vaccine. You know how how low do we said the age limit for really strongly recommending, or, in some cases, certain institutions may require Vaccination and and I think that's that's where still a lot of the challenges come in. But pretty much every adult who's doctor doesn't say. I really don't think you should get the shot, which is going to be unusual. Um should should get the vaccine. I do think that's the smart way to go now. Specifically on the vaccines. Dr. Fauci was asked by Lester hold about people who got the one and done J and J shot thinking that they need a booster because it's not effective enough. Let's listen. There have been some well respected experts who were talking about after receiving the J and J vaccine going back and getting a booster if you will. Of of either Pfizer or Moderna. Is that concerning to you? Or do you think that they may be onto something from an opinion of Physicians around the country, many of them maybe all of them really well meeting in quite competent They're doing that, but they're doing it on the hunch that it will work and be safe when you get a formal recommendation from a regulatory agency or a public health agency. Like the FDA and the CDC, respectively. That will be based on data that's accumulated. We're not there yet. That doesn't mean it's not going to ultimately happen, but the data don't show that right now. So Dr Dan people they got the J and J shouldn't be worried that they're not protected against something like the Delta there as protected as people that got the double dose of the fighter of the modern Yeah, It certainly seems pretty clear with the passage of time that any of these vaccines will do just fine. And you know what? There are ways that we can find out. If anybody is really concerned we can get you can get. Uh, you know, you can ask your doctor to write a script for an antibody test and find out Do I have antibodies? There's also a T cell test in our immune system. Response to threats in many different ways. But the two prominent ones we think about in terms of this infection R B cells that crank out antibodies and T cells that serve as our bodies Memory bank for what we've been exposed to and what we need to fight off if we encounter it again when you get a vaccine, or if you have a natural immunity, and that's another one of my big points. Is that if you have natural immunity if you've had covid You do not need to get a vaccine, and that's the other thing I want to be emphasized. That's not being emphasized Insult not being emphasized by the CDC. If you're naturally immune, you don't need to get a vaccine. Uh, and the way you can prove your immune either, after infection or after vaccine is to test and see if your B cells are ready to crank out antibodies can get an antibody test..

Dr Pereira and supervisor on whether you're vindicated in the public health strategy Project room key and when teachers will get vaccines, first doctor further, and Supervisor L. A county received criticism and lawsuits from some restaurant owners on the outdoor dining ban. County data shows that virus transmission rates started dropping around the same time as the outdoor dining ban and the safe ride home order were issued, which occurred a week ahead of the ST Stay at home order. Does the current good news vindicate your efforts to ban outdoor dining and imposing early, safer at home order? Okay. Now, let's get a completely different question. For l. A mayor Eric Garcetti. I'm deeply feel vindicated that you backed the public Health department here because you know, there's a lot of public criticism. You know about this, but In the end, the public health Department was right. That really bad circles coming on. I just want to know what you thought about that. Thank you. You should really work in a dirty cake shop. Joining us to talk about this and much, much more. Is Fox 11th Film Illusion. Bill Welcome. Hey, John. Thanks for having me, man. That's quite a Quite a variety of questions there. Yeah. You know what? Um, I heard the same thing I was listening in on the DPH pressure the other day. When I heard that question asked in my my job kind of hit the floor. I understand. Ron later explained that he was talking about That our number that health officials like to talk about you know how many people get infected by one single person, he says. That number got lower, but I mean, look at any chart after the outdoor dining band went into effect, our numbers shot up like a missile straight up right afterwards. And if you were we remember at the time supervisors Catherine Parker and Janice Hahn They voted against it. They were concerned that hey, if we shut down outdoor dining, where essentially going to be forcing people indoors, going into the fall going into the colder weather? We're worried people are going to congregate indoors more. And you know, people can debate the outdoor dining ban all they want, but the fact is In the months after it. We went into our worst surge ever, and we're still not out of it. Um, so I don't understand why it would be asked of health officials that they feel vindicated for that. Um, it was just bizarre from my perspective. Well in L. A doesn't operate in a vacuum. We have other cities and other states that air doing similar things and one of the reasons that the city of Chicago decided to reopen their bars and restaurants. I believe for not just outdoor, but indoor dining as well. Was because they realize that by shutting all of them down what they did was, they pushed everyone into crowded little apartments or Grandma's kitchen for Christmas or whatever, and that caused their numbers to explode. The same thing happened in Los Angeles. Yeah. And now they're taking another page out of the exact same playbook. They today they're letting outdoor dining reopen with the caveat that TVs have to be turned off s. Oh, So now the idea is, obviously they don't want people gathering at sports bars and restaurants to watch the Super Bowl next weekend, right? So what they haven't learned. What are people going to do now? Okay, so they don't want him watching it outside. They want to take the outdoor option away. What are people gonna do? Instead? They're gonna watch it indoors. They're going to go to private parties at home. They're gonna watch it. It have people over to watch the game. I would think health officials would want people outside in the fresh air at lower capacity. Rather than crammed inside of private homes. Um, but, hey, I'm not a health expert, but it just seems it just seems logical. So, yeah, they're reopening the outdoor dining today, but TV is has to be gone or turned off.

"Department when Pasadena that has their own health department and other parts of Los Angeles County or having a very tough time, but they won't be openly critical of her. She is a appointee. She is someone who could be fired and replaced and she can take the fall for all of the politicians which typically happens in government all the time. But for whatever reason, they will not say a cross word about her. I don't think they know what to do the stuff. I don't think they realize how badly they're botching it amongst all of them that they're so done with the way they are responding to this pandemic, they have been such a failure. They refused to even look at the numbers. I don't think they will acknowledge John that states like Florida are doing infinitely better than their Texas. Dates that are open where kids are going back to our back in school in person where they don't have lockdowns where there isn't limitation on capacities that bars and restaurants where they don't have masked mandates. You hear Gavin Newsom safe. I'm focusing on, you know, getting kids back to school. Really? What are you doing? Get kids back to school because I don't see a dang thing. I don't see anything that you're doing. If that's what you're focusing on, focus harder. Because you're making no meaningful impact. They keep doubling down on these things. I don't think they realize what an abject failure Barbara Ferrer is, and they certainly don't want to take over for her because they're perfectly happy to be able to sort of deflect and say, Well, that's you know, we're leaving it to the experts. Following the science and all of these other statements that they make over and over again, yet they're not following a shred of science or a shred of actual data. When asked if public employees like firefighters would be required to take the vaccine, the mayor essentially said. I don't plan on doing that right now. Some of them are refusing to take it. But after they see their friends and colleagues taking the vaccine without having any adverse reactions, I assume they will all willingly do it. But he refused to rule out, forcing them to take the vaccine in order to lawfully show up to work. What do you think ultimately is going to happen to those people? Police officers, firefighters empties if they refused to take the vaccine. Well, I'll tell you it's really a sticky wicket. John because some companies agencies are forcing people have been trader Joe's, I understand is one that I'm saying, you have to get a vaccine. If you're going to work in our store. Um it's really tough because somebody has a bad side of an adverse reaction to the vaccination and there have been a lot So far, we can talk about this recent Snapple with the Madonna vaccines in San Diego. If it's been mandated that you do that, it's tough if there's any adverse reactions, and I think that, um awful lot of first responders and healthcare workers have made it very clear that they don't want the vaccine upwards of 50%. Of those first responders and health care workers are saying No, not for me. Thanks. They'd rather wait. So I think you're gonna be hard pressed frankly, to force those people to do it. Well, take me. For example. I am someone who like you is pro vaccine 110%. I will eventually take the vaccine for covert 19. But if offered me today, I would decline and I have a very good reason for declining. I've already had Cove it I have the antibodies. I'm young. I'm healthy. Give it to the old people. Give it to the people in nursing homes. Give it to the cancer patients. Give it to morbidly obese people give it to people who are immunocompromised. Later on. As we get deep into the process, maybe I'll take it. But right now I don't want it and I've got a perfectly valid reason for not wanting it. Absolutely. I have recommended that anybody who has had Covad declined to get the vaccine, at least for the foreseeable future. For the exact reason you said, you already have immunity to it. For at least you're gonna have it for at least 9 to 12 months. If not longer. We don't know because we haven't had enough experience to know Just how long but we know that people have antibodies that are lasting at this point upwards of nine months, and then you will have what we call humor all immunity. That takes over after that, which means that your immune system essentially remembers having had it. So if you see the virus again, you very quickly ramp up and make those antibodies again even if they have dropped off in their numbers, So for that reason, absolutely, and it becomes a risk benefit issue. People under the age of 20. There's zero reason those people should be getting vaccinated. Because they're essentially zero risk from Cove it unless they have an identifiable risk factor between 20 and 50. If you're otherwise a healthy person again, your your risk of having a bad outcome. If you get cove it is so low. It is so low that you really have to balance the risk of an adverse reaction from the vaccine. So it's not to you get up into those older decades. Those people over the age of 70 over the age of 80 who have underlying health conditions that in my mind, you can say yes, it's worth the risk of the vaccine. The risks are worth it to me. Because I am. It's too high likelihood that if I get this virus, I would have a bad outcome or have a really rough go of it. Here's what's going to absolutely drive me nuts because public employees work for the city or they work for the county or they work for the state, and they have to do what their employer tells them to do in order to keep and perform their job. Someone in that position that's in a similar situation is me is going to be forced to take the vaccine before an 85 year old who needs it? When someone like me doesn't need it because I already have the antibodies. You're right. And one of my concerns again with this is that the vaccines were not tested John on people who have existing antibodies. They weren't I hate to break it to you, but these vaccines were rushed out as part of Operation works speed. There's a reason why the average vaccine takes 4 to 6 years to come to market. Not 4 to 6 months like this one, and they skipped a bunch of what I consider to be pretty important testing steps in order to get it to market in 4 to 6 months. And their large groups of people on whom these vaccines were not tested, And that certainly includes people who had existing antibodies. Those people were eliminated from the test groups just like they didn't test it on pregnant women. They didn't test it on women who are breastfeeding. They didn't tested on people with underlying autoimmune diseases like Lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, or, you know enough crones disease. They didn't test on those people. They didn't Stood on people who have allergies, toe polyethylene glycol, So I have real concerns about this particular vaccine. Although I am wildly pro vaccine in general, so anybody like yourself who knows has documented that they had Covic that you recovered from it. Why in the world you would roll up your sleeves at this point? I don't understand it, and I wouldn't recommend it. What happened in San Diego with that bad batch. Well, they're trying into a quote particular batch. I don't think you could do that so easily. This was a batch of Madonna covert 19 vaccines given at a particular clinic in San Diego County, and they had with their reporting in less than 10, to which I interpret as nine. People who had severe allergic reactions in a 24 hour period. That's extremely they don't report out how many total doses they gave, but they had a group of people have animal Actiq allergic reactions. To the vaccine on their tying it saying, Well, it maybe it's this one batch of vaccine Now. That batch of vaccine, incidentally, would send out not just to that clinic but to multiple clinics. Many, many sites in Southern California received that particular batch of vaccine, So it's unclear exactly what happened and this is the problem that they've been very slow to report. A lot of these things as they quote investigated because they don't want to increase vaccine hesitancy anymore than it already is. There are a lot of people who are have some concerns about this vaccine and aren't sure if they want it so that kept the adverse reactions relatively quiet. I could tell you that in my experience, we're seeing a heck of a lot more adverse..

That is that is par for the course, especially here in California, where so many of them are bad at their job, But when you're in the middle of a crisis, clarity is key. Your appointees have to know where you stand. The counties have to know where you stand. The medical providers have to know where you stand and the people who want to get the vaccine have to know where you stand and what they're supposed to do, and nobody knows it.
