Yes we actually announced that some time ago we have been working on our time line and we'll make An announcement about that time line within the next few days but we think it's very important for healthcare workers across the country the be vaccinated as vaccination is really the only way to stop this pandemic. What's your reaction to the cdc revising. Its mask recommendations. Well i think it's a good move you know the. Cdc tends to be very conservative. We think that's appropriate. We do see the pandemic Increasing in intensity around the country Certainly in this state related mostly to the aggressive nature of the delta variant so understanding that how it impacts the unvaccinated how it could potentially impact the vaccinated people and enable them to spread. Disease misled the cdc to this recommendation. The american academy of pediatrics released updated guidance for schools. This week saying that masks should be worn at school.

Suggests that it's time to rethink that statewide policy. Well certainly You know. I would try to twist the arm of the governor to reconsider. But he's he's looking at it from a different perspective. I think my advice is for parents to consider the recommendations from both the cdc and the american academy of pediatrics. we're concerned that the delta variant is actually infecting more children than the previous variance. We know that we don't yet have a vaccine available for those under the age of twelve. So we think it's wise for children really grades k.

Let's talk about the measles. We've got a major outbreak going on in this country. We're we're seeing a lot of cases here in Texas is well, if you were born between nineteen fifty seven in one thousand nine hundred nine and you gotta measles shot that may not be enough because nineteen fifty seven they started giving you one shot is to join us to talk about it and talk about the I think what he would concern me the insanity of being an anti vaccine, Dr Daniel musher distinguished service, professor medicine at Baylor. College medicine. Doctor. I know your bottom line kinda guy. What do you think of people who are not giving their kids, those kinds of vaccinations? Well, sir. Percival good morning. They've been calling the vaccine choice advocates. So or vacuum sexing choice activists. Now, we have people who think the holocaust didn't happen. We don't call them holocaust. Choice activists. We call them holocaust deniers. These people are vaccine deniers the evidence is perfectly clear vaccines. Protect the evidence is clear that the not harmful measles is a terrible disease. And frankly, it's just playing stupidity. You know, so many of us of a certain age. I guess we had measles children. You know before vaccines were even being given. And we think of it as just being a natural part of childhood tell us, what is the devastating consequences of measles. Or when it can be HOGAN, first of all, I didn't think you were old enough that you had means listening. Thank you. You're very sweet. Meals meals can lead to simple complications like middle ear infections, but the Monja is a frequent complication measles. And it's a bad case of leaves the lungs damage permanently. And they're even cases of instead of lightness, and it's a highly contagious disease enormously can take. And it's just bad, and we basically eliminated in United States fifteen years ago. It was just about gone the United States. And now some of these people who either on we haven't seen Texas on the west coast. They somehow considering fringes on their rights insist that they evacuated. We have emergency. And I'm sorry to say we have phonetics I'm Jewish apparently some of these people are Jewish that. I don't know why I think that's vaccinated. They believe that there's a divine providence, and they should believe God told us have to make vaccines to protect people from careful diseases. So I'm pretty unsympathetic to understand. Of course, part of the problem, too is is we have people coming from other countries in many cases illegally across their border. Who have not been vaccinated for measles. And they sometimes bring the disease along with them. Don't they? This is a very important point. Actually, I will tell you to my knowledge I have not heard of cases being brought in like illegal immigrants. They're being brought in by folks who are just flying back from other countries where they've had the exposure they've had these and they brought in the United States. And of course, it's very devastating for adults to get this disease. I mean, we were talking about children as even worse when get it that that is absolutely true. And is Sarah said earlier if adults have been vaccinated when they were. Yeah. If they've been vaccinated anyone is vaccinated twice who's received. The full Senate vaccines is very very unlikely to get the disease and anyone really had measles in jail. It is very unlikely to get measles. But there are people who've had neither and they are at risk, and it's a bad disease. All right. Thank you for joining us this morning.
