Nine hundred thirty three ninety-three also at pat unleashed on twitter. Bill gates talking to a believe. Jake tapper about first policy. The america first approach to receiving the vaccine. The president wants to take care of americans. Here's what bill gates thinks about that. President trump signed an executive order That prioritizes distribution of the vaccine to americans Before it goes to people in other countries it's not entirely clear how the order will achieve that. But what do you think of that. Strategy that approach that everyone in the united states should be vaccinated first and then the us should pivot or these private company should pivot to helping the rest of the world. Why we need help all of humanity here Know we want the world economy. Be going we want to minimize the deaths and You know the. The basic technology is a german company and so international sharon cooperation has been disruptive and a mistake during this entire pandemic so positive to ramp. Virtually all of the companies that have developed vaccines are. Us companies. pfizer did work with bio intech in germany. They developed it together. Madonna is a an american company. Johnson and johnson is an american company. Astrazeneca is an american company. All of these people have have developed these things. Here in america for the most part and also why wouldn't you focus on your own country first and then spread it out to the rest of the world just i mean unbelievable to me that the globalist mindset that we have a responsibility to take care of everybody before ourselves. I'm sorry. what are the instructions on an airline win the cabin depressurizes and the oxygen masks. Drop down from that panel above your head. What is a what is a flight attendant to put yours on first then assist your children put yours on first and then assist everybody else. So why is that. Why why do we have that instruction well so you can take care of somebody else because if you pass out. You're not going to be able to help your kids. are you going to be. They're going to be lost without you. So if the if the united states of america goes down who's going to help the rest of the world then who's going to take care of everybody else. You gotta take care of yourself. I get on solid footing and then we can go take care of the of the world like we always do. I mean who on this planet has ever offered more aid to everybody else than the united states. We are always the first. On the scene of every single disaster we give by far More charitable donations to the rest of the world in foreign aid and And in private citizen aid by far more than anybody in the world probably more than the rest of the world combined. I mean our charitable giving tops. Three hundred billion a year like thirty to fifty billion of that comes from the us government. The rest is from us corporations and private citizens we always take care of the rest of the world. I wonderful was bill gates when he stole the technology that made him a billionaire from zero oxen. Ibm he took the the the mouse from. I believe it was xerox. And i believe the operating system came from ibm and then he knew how to apply those. Two things xerox. Ibm didn't really know what they had available to. Them gates was smart enough to figure that out but he did take the technology from them when when the money started rolling in did he take care of everybody else i did. He start setting all that all that money to other people or did he become a billion. I the richest man in the world. I and then start his philanthropic adventures. Let's see the rest of this So we need to ramp up the capacity of all the vaccines There will be some additional ones approved in the months ahead. Easier to scale up to manufacturing Button also the. Us has benefited from other countries. Work here and we shouldn't entirely selfish and how we go forward that's us. We're selfish so in your view. America first as the president might call it. Not the right approach. And what a surprise that we'd stream idea that Everybody should die until we have a very last american vaccinated by that. Yeah that was the executive order that The trump signed everybody else in the world should die until we have every last american vaccinated then with everybody else dead. We won't have to distribute the vaccine to anybody. How ridiculous is this guy all. Does he have more so the idea that everybody should die. Until we have the very last american vaccinated. That's ardley the appropriate response. Yeah nobody's suggesting it either is the interesting thing about that. Nobody suggesting that everybody else in the world should die before they get the vaccine. I don't know i. I don't understand it i really don't understand it. We all wanna take care of everybody else if we can. We wanna help other other people. Give them a hand up instead of a handout. But again there is a concept that you take care of yourself first so that you're alive and around and healthy enough to offer assistance to the rest of the world. How did you not get as the third richest person on earth. And this guy's mr vaccine. He he believes Strongly vaccines vaccines should come in fact With the ability to sterilize women so that we can Accomplish zero population growth. One of his deals a lot of people don't know his. His father was at one point ahead of planned parenthood the head of planned parenthood. So he's a big zero population guy now. Speaking of the vaccine. This is kind of interesting. Apparently vacs vaccine people. The people have developed pfizer madonna. They're taking some lessons from ice cream manufacturer dip dots because dip dots. I didn't realize that you know a dip dots. Are right there the little balls of ice cream that you see at fairs set in the mall. theme parks have dipping dots. It's not the greatest ice cream on the planet perhaps but it's convenient and it's the it's easy to to eat when you're on the go so anyway. Apparently the process of manufacturing dip dots includes flash freezing the ice cream into these little balls with liquid nitrogen that is three hundred twenty degrees below zero. So it's a really ultra cold process and then In order to maintain that form that little ball form of ice cream that they have it has to stay at at least forty nine below zero the entire time so it has to be delivered at forty nine below zero. It has to be stored at forty nine below zero otherwise it just in belts into some kind of gu And you can't have that. This was. I didn't realize dipping dots were invented by a microbiologist. Taste like the. They were invented by microbiologist to actually but back in nineteen eighty eight. We've had them along. We've had them a long time. The ice cream of the future. So i guess even if it slips a few degrees in the wrong direction if it warms up slightly then it doesn't hold his form so The covid manufacturers are looking to dipping dots. In how how. They how they accomplished their delivery process. And i guess mostly they do it with dry ice stray ice I think is almost a hundred degrees below zero. Which is where pfizer. The pfizer vaccine needs to be stored the madonna Vaccine only needs to be stored at four below zero so they're looking towards dipping dots and how they've been doing this thing for thirty two years for how they can deliver their vaccines. What a weird world you get. You couldn't make this stuff up. Nobody would believe it mean. Actual life is so much stranger than fiction. It's it's really pretty amazing.

Almost every fitness center is outdoors. Except for not at all. I don't again. How do they expect the owners of gyms and fitness places. How do they expect them to survive. There's i i mean.

I love watching the the the games lately and The coaches they're all masked up because they have to be or they're gonna get fined in the nfl they'll leave and lose draft picks and not only. Do you have to wear the mask but you have to wear it. The they say you need to wear it covered at the nose and the mouth at all times and then now it's so bad that even the players when they come off the field. When they're on the sideline they have to put on a mask. Ask things just so out of control. And then they wonder why we're experiencing this kind of fatigue and they wonder why we're we're kind of pushing back against it. Don't you people understand. This isn't forever right. It's been nine months when we were told. We needed to flatten the curve for two weeks nine months later it's getting worse. Which is why. Maybe we should talk about christmas and christmas related things today triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety-three mason in montana. Hey mason hey. Thanks for taking my call i must. I must admit It's a privilege to talk to you because this is definitely my favorite podcast. Listen to thank you. Where in montana are you calling from just south of missoula okay for the liberal part. Yes definitely So the The worst movie has to be the christmas story. The most boring movie. Oh wow. I'm not a big fan of the christmas story either but for a lot of people. That's their favorite movie. I knew that would be an unpopular pick but it. Yeah people are realist. Have to realize it's gotta be the dumbest movie The best one is It's a wonderful life. I keep hoping that Foul cheese comes in twenty twenty one and says You know. I'm an angel and twenty. Twenty was all a dream so hopefully hopefully saints she reveals that he's really clearance or clarence so that would be nice. Yeah all right shit. Thanks a lot Mason triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three ninety. Three also at pat unleashed on twitter. Me i don't see that for saints ouchi however he was just making a another big announcement of how critical it is right. Now that we follow all of these restrictions like lined up Like i just outlined for you from washington state california and of course he suggesting that joe biden and kamala harris get inoculated immediately and that President trump also get the vaccine which is interesting because he's already had covert nineteen and you would think he would have some immunity already. It'll be interesting to see how they deal with I think they're suggesting that even if you've had covid nineteen they still want you to get. They still want you to get the vaccine. It's amazing the unintended consequences. That things you never think about. That are occurring right now like There's an article here today about the covid relationship problems that are coming up because we're all I guess jammed into close quarters in some cases and because there's so many restrictions on us and there's a lot of debate about whether or not a mask is even worthwhile me do i do. I even have any protection with it because in the beginning i was told no. You don't wearing a mask is like trying to keep trying to keep mosquitoes out of your backyard with a chain link fence. That's that's what we were told in the beginning. A now now masks are just all important so anyway. This article outlines some of the relationship. Problems that people are experiencing for instance ami abby. Mahler just ended a childhood friendship in the comments section of whatever instagram posts posts Read you do not like. Oh i guess whatever. Whatever friends liked her post and Her friend apparently has a different opinion on on where to go and what to do during this pandemic so she wrote you. Do not like this post with the amount of restaurants you eat at expletive. I mean it. She wrote so. She broke up with her friend right there on instagram. She has spent the last month nine months using her social media account to help inform others about the importance of mask wearing. I guess. She's an expert. Now she must be A scientist by day but instagram has been a window into the day today activities of people who have gone about their lives. As if there were no pandemic eating at restaurants mask free going on lavish vacations hanging out at bars. So if you disagree with those things it causes real issues with other people around you even people who have been lifelong friends because his muller said i have no patience for people who don't think literal rules apply to them. Some people just believe in freedom and don't like to be told by government what they should be doing. Triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three ninety-three withdrew thought reading here. This morning triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety three. Also pat unleashed on twitter. Where spoiling tweets. The executive order said prioritize us citizens not restricted exclusively to us citizens. They just loved it. Twist it that's for sure so yes it's not the case where everybody else in the world can go ahead and died from covid. Were going to make sure we inoculated every last american before we go to anybody else. Gender mc gender face tweets. Someone needs to tell bill gates that this is an actual living virus not a computer virus so no one really gives a crap what he has to say about it Landru our are you out of the body tweets.

Are you doing anything differently this year because of covid nineteen are you following restrictions imposing your own restrictions on your on yourself and everybody you have a responsibility for. Let's go to cheryl in florida Cheryl hi you're on the blaze pat. I don't agree with my gremlins christmas movie. I not. I mean.

So i appreciate that enjoy ever since. So thank you to all. These ridiculous restrictions reminds me of this holiday cartoon out of germany The burger meister remember. Yes the German mayor trips a toy breaks his leg in. Dean's all toys immoral and illegal. That's what that's what we're going through right now. It really does feel like that doesn't it. Yeah is that is that. The burger meisters in Is it santa. claus is coming to town. Is that yeah. I think it is. Yep chris cringle yep frisch it. Thanks a lot ron that's a good point. Very reminiscent of that. Also some heartbreaking news for you if you if. You've yet to hear the greatest kicker who ever lived sarah fuller wyoming greatest kicker. Whoever lived if you're to believe all the hype surrounding her. She actually is a soccer player at vanderbilt. And vanderbilt's actual kicker got covid nineteen or got injured. Somehow there was nobody else around everybody's off campus and the girls soccer team happened to be there and so they invited her to try out and and maybe kick for them over the last couple of games well vanderbilt has has cancelled their last Football game of the season because covid and so it may be that sarah fuller may have played her last football game already she in vanderbilt or apparently done for the year but man did she set the world on fire while she was around. She kicked not one but two extra points in football games. Now the big deal. They made out of that. Doesn't that seem kind of sexist. I it is not a huge thing to be able to kick a An extra point. It's maybe nineteen or twenty yards. Did you have to you have to boot. It that distance it has to clear ten feet of the goalpost of the crossbar. And it has to be between the uprights. Most people could probably do that. She did it twice he made. It seem as if she'd set every single kicking record in the book but after becoming the first woman to play and score in a power five conference. Football game fuller was robbed of another chance to kick on saturday. Vanderbilt's a not gonna play georgia as they were scheduled to now she's going for the vanderbilt women's soccer team made her debut by kicking that squib kick no reason in the world for vanderbilt to have squibb kicked the second half kickoff but I feel like that. They did that for her so that they could say yes. She did that on purpose. Yeah it's not that you can't kick it a really long way. It's just that we didn't want her to anyway. She tweeted out It looks like my time is a football player has come to an end. I was accepted as an athlete and a true member of this team. This is an experience that i will never forget. And we'll cherish forever. Good luck to the seniors and who are moving on to new adventures. Best wishes to the team is this program moves forward and continues to grow. I'm sure that will inspire those who play football at vanderbilt now. For years to come. I mean it is nice. I guess that she was able to do that. And become the first woman in a power five game to do that but the hype around. It was so ridiculous. How many times did espn show her. Kick an extra point again. I think that's insulting to her and to women triple eight nine hundred thirty three three. Edit pat unleashed on twitter. Let's go to steven in north carolina.

So don't forget we still have coming up the san francisco renaming of Just a ton of schools elementary junior high high school and there is one guy who is leading this effort and apparently completely adamant about it and san franciscans are just following him down this path. It's amazing that political correctness has got us to this place where we can't even leave the names of certain american heroes in place things that we've named after them so that they can be remembered for the great things they did. But if ever said one thing if you have one quote during the course of your life that these left wing morons don't like forget it. They're coming for you.

For three days Putin on ritz tweets were comparing american politics. Two star wars biden's not only one of the dark emperors but also at the same time ajar banks from ranch out loud there renaming schools away from american heroes. Because we're not gonna be america much longer. Carney t is the put for me tweets. Well pat is it really all that surprising that the democrats have a problem with abraham lincoln No it really isn't actually but it just you know you. You expect this stuff from democrats and then it went really happens though. It's still kind of amazing there. Renaming abraham lincoln highschool because the former president didn't demonstrate. That black lives matter to him. Let's see lincoln oversaw the effort to stop slavery that resulted in the death of over. Six hundred thousand americans net seems like he demonstrated more clearly than anybody in history. That black lives mattered to him. Pick up a history book. Check it out do a little reading anyway. The san francisco district is planning to rename a school named after abraham lincoln. Because as they said he didn't demonstrate black lives matter to him. The president who's often held up as a an american hero for abolishing slavery is just one of forty four historical figures to other names scratched off. Schools within the san francisco unified school district. You really have that much time on your hands that you can devote it to this effort that is just. it's nuts. Some of the other names that they're planning to change. See the list here includes course. We already mentioned abraham lincoln high school Alamo elementary because the alamo was what Belong to mexico. I suppose daniel webster elementary dianne feinstein elementary even dianne feinstein. How now let's see. I'm looking for what it is. She okay so serve as dimitras she allowed. Oh okay. here's the problem with dianne feinstein. She allowed the confederate flag to fly in front of san francisco city hall win. She was the mayor of san francisco from nineteen seventy eight to nine thousand nine hundred ninety eight so forty two years ago. She allowed a confederate flag to fly in front of city hall. And now we've got to remove her name as if she didn't exist. That's pretty amazing that even not even there Progressive heroes are exempt from this kind of stuff. This madness Let's see they want to change the name of francis scott key elementary because well he wrote the star spangled banner. And of course you know how racist that is garfield elementary really. Because the president garfield name person who knows anything about garfield i. I couldn't couldn't really describe any of his agenda during his his presidency. I couldn't tell you what he said. That was offensive They want to eliminate george washington high school change that name just as president trump warned. And we've warned for many years. They will come after all the founding fathers all the statues all the namesake's and it's all gotta go. Jefferson elementary that as well. Because i'm sure both of those men own slaves. That would be the reason you'd want to eliminate them and Paul revere k. through eight this is what paul revere. I'd love to know what it is. Paul revere did to deserve having his name removed from the elementary school. At just it's it's really incredible. The person behind the renaming of these schools is a first grade teacher who was influenced by his parents both prominent members of the nation of islam. Who set up their own. Islamic school wonder if anything's named after muhammad. Could you find something in the life of mohammad that might lead you to want to remove his name from anything no certainly not certainly you was above reproach jeremiah jeffries. Chairman of the renaming committee revealed in an interview that his mother told him once. There's nothing mysterious about progression. It's working instead of wishing so that's what he's doing. He's working to remove the names of these heroes from any school at all in the san francisco bay area. Wow so jeremiah jeffries. Mom and her husband's setup. Sister clara muhammad school that served as a predominant serve predominantly african american muslims the nation of islam which is defined as an organization organized hate group by the southern poverty law center for its racist anti-semitic an anti gay teachings in rhetoric black superiority over whites. So this is the guy in charge of removing all of the names of american heroes from from the school district in san francisco in one thousand nine hundred nine jeffries headlines nationwide when he held a protest against teachers spending their own money on school supplies. That's 'cause they shouldn't have to do that. The san francisco school district includes increased. The school supply budget for the first time in decades of his effort he also carved out a reputation as a power broker for the district board of education using his influence to get at least four candidates appointed at. Here's one of the things that has shaped his life. I guess at the age of twelve after assistant was shot and killed. He got his first taste of working in. Education is a janitor at a childcare center. He later went to the university of virginia where he got involved in racial justice activism with the black student alliance including getting the first black woman into student office and then when he moved to san francisco he counted he co-founded founded teachers for change and laters later teachers for social justice activism. That's great and now They're big effort is to rename schools. Forty four of them and the rest of the district is just going along with it. They're just along for the ride. No need to push back on any of this. Go ahead and and just change our history. What was it that The shell obama said and barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices. We're going to have to change our conversation. We're going to have to change our traditions history to move move into a different place into a different place while that is certainly going on. Isn't it we. We are changing our traditions. We are changing our history. We have moved into a different place. We were in america. The land of the free in the home of the brave. Now we've moved into a different place. Cashier says no question about that. Also we have this story. A new york woman is facing weapons charges after the new york police department stormed her home and seized at least twenty two guns from her apartment. Why does she have a stash of twenty two guns. What was she planning. What was she going to do a later. Investigation of the twenty two weapons found that twenty. One of the twenty two were not real. They're fake guns and now she's facing these These weapons churches can we not. I dunno noodle things out anymore as thinking. Human beings are these adults in new york. Better in charge of the justice system analysis from the department showed that all weapons were either inoperable so the one gun that was real was inoperable or they were fake and She has said that she lens. The fake weapons to rappers and producers to make music videos or other artistic productions. So she's in in jail for that facing get this a possible twenty five year prison sentence.

Chris barack obama. Maybe they'll change. Just change it. Every every single one of these schools to brock obama high school barack obama junior high barack obama middle school. Because there's a guy who never said or did anything wrong right. Everything he's done is clean as a hustle. He's never only broken any law. He's never done anything wrong. He's the perfect perfect heisman. The perfect american a compare and contrast that with what they say about donald trump it. It's just absolutely amazing. So while barack obama was perfect the perfect human the perfect father the perfect president the perfect husband wife us probably all things rolled into one. Then you've got the left talking about donald trump as if he's the anti christ debra messing you know who she is she was will and grace monday. She said she hoped donald trump will be raped in prison. Doubling down on what. She said last week where she said trump would be the most popular. She wanted trump to be the most popular boyfriend to all the prison. Inmates thought prison rape was Verboten i guess. Not of your lefty right. If you're if you're a hollywood actress you can. You can wish that on anybody and it's perfectly fine. You're not violating any. Lgbtq q two plus laws. would it be. Would it be okay for someone to wish. Debra messing got raped so. I don't think you could do that safely. Get away with it but somehow to the tolerant inclusive loving left just. It's perfectly acceptable to wish those kinds of things on the donald trump. That's that's how great their incomprehensible hate for him is unbelievable. A few people asked her about. Wait a minute. You're you're saying it's a prison rape do so. A few lefties brought that up. What she responded was rape as an act of violence. Trump is perpetrated violence on hundreds of millions of people. My hope and this is the first time in my life is that the tables are turned and he is the victim of perpetrators and she wrote donald trump or a week. Scared stupid inept negligent vindictive narcissistic criminal. Hope you live a long life in prison where you become the most popular boyfriend to all the inmates okay. She defended the tweet again saying Lgbtq i- queer love. Let me be clear. I said nothing. About lgbtq ike. We're love when you're hoping other male inmates rape a male inmate.

Hoping that he's the victim of perpetrators and prison rape. Yes he She did go too far. Thirty nine percent. No forty eight percent. Forty eight percent of these despicable people. Say the debra messing didn't go too far In hoping that donald trump gets raped. I just this double standard and the insanity of the left. it knows no bounds.

There while you think about your best and worst christmas movies and what you're doing for christmas this year in light of covid nineteen if there's a difference my guess is no In this audience i'm guessing.

Impossible movies number seven coming up and he wigged out. They've got some strict policies Because you know covid nineteen.

Is that it that's it. So that is you're saying that it now he's coming down just a tad realizing that this could probably surface in public. And it'd make him look bad okay so he doesn't care about it but he's calling warner brothers. Paramount movies are going because of of them. Well they're all that's happening all okay so He's a little upset. People weren't socially distanced and he's going to fire. You don't comply that's it that is it.

Hi hey Hey pat how you doing good So the worst christmas movie of all time. You may not have heard of that. But it was a remake of babes in toyland with kiana read andrew. Berry more i. I don't think i've seen it but that sounds bad Musical oh wow which they start off like one of the first songs in the whole thing is a song about cincinnati ohio. What you need to go check this out. It's on youtube. I'm pretty sure the whole movie on there. You need to see that yeah. Does keanu reeves actually sing i. Yes oh wow yeah. I and the only reason why i know about it is because when i was young kid somehow my mom got the videotape for free and i just remembered it in a couple of years ago it was like you know what i wonder if this movie is still out there somewhere and sure enough. It was just the whole movies on. That's great. I'm gonna look for that today. Actually are i appreciate the heads up. Michael triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three ninety. Three also at pat unleashed on twitter. Jacqueline smith did a christmas movie. I think nineteen eighty or something. So it's been a long time. I can't remember the name of it but it is one of the worst dumbest christmas stories. I have ever seen in my life if anybody could remember the name of the jaclyn smith movie. Where she's she and her husband are struggling. I guess with the relationship and their kid is a little brat and at one point in the movie he heard the dinner table having some kind of argument and the kid jumps out of his chair and says to his father. I hate you dad. I really really hate you. The runs off to his room. It's a very dramatic very powerful powerful movie and at powerful seen. Yes it is the night. They saved christmas key s. Because what's happening is i guess. The husband works for some mining company or or oil company. And i think they're blasting for oil trying to find oil somewhere and they're planting churches to near the north pole north pole city or whatever it is and they're getting close to blown up santa claus and his elves. It's chilling it's a chilling tale. Just awful acting. I mean if you thought the kid in star wars. The i was at the first of the middle series of star. Wars that little kid. That played anikin This kid in the night they save. Christmas might even be worse than him. And that's saying something that is taking acting to a spectacular low. But i haven't seen that in a long time. We used to watch it every single year. Just because it was funny it was like became a family joke for christmas to watch that every year. Triple eight nine hundred thirty. Three three also add pat unleashed on twitter By the way the supreme court just because we were talking earlier about what remains for president trump the supreme court has rejected kansas's attempt to bring back voter. Id laws that's how bad the bad things are with the court system right now. They rejected a bid by kansas republican's to revive laws that require people to get this prove their citizenship voting. Yeah you don't want him to do that. It's way too hard. The law wichita kansas district court struck down in two thousand. Eighteen was instituted in two thousand thirteen and required voters to present a passport. Birth certificate or other proof of citizenship before registering. It had been championed by former kansas secretary of state chris. Bach whom president trump appointed in two thousand seventeen to head up the commission. That was Studying election integrity. At the time of the law's passage. It ran up against critics who alleged that it was designed disenfranchise potential voters the american civil liberties union. The aclu filed a lawsuit noting. The kansas was the only state that required such strict voter registration requirements. The group claimed that more than thirty thousand people had lost the right to vote during that time that the law was in effect. Wait how does the aclu have standing to bring a lawsuit against kansas The president doesn't have standing anywhere in any court. Texas doesn't have any standing anywhere in any court but the aclu does fascinating how that worked so anyway Their voter id law. There did not hold up and it was stopped. Just unbelievable how many times it's been thwarted just common sense voting restrictions. Just all we want to do is presented. Id is that really. that difficult. do minorities really not have ideas. I mean that is racist to assume that they don't because they do triple eight nine hundred thirty three ninety-three also popular. Transgender activists has recently called for all children to be put on puberty blockers until they're able to decide for themselves which gender they'll be because as you know what's in your pants has no that has nothing to do with what what gender you are lauren mcnamara known by her followers as zinnias jones argued earlier this month that children should be legally able to consent to the administration of puberty blockers since they already de facto consent to the permanent and changes that come naturally through puberty if children can't consent to puberty blockers which pause any permanent changes even with the relevant professional evaluation. How can they consent to the permanent and irrevocable changes that come with their own puberty with no professional evaluation whatsoever. I i don't know maybe because it's a naturally occurring situation. That is supposed to happen that you're supposed to go through puberty. It's just the way. God designed us and she wants to stop that so ridiculous. Oh you haven't decided. I guess up through what you're sixteen years old and it's taking you all that time to decide. Yeah i'm not. I'm not sure if i'm a boy or girl so you block puberty from happening with these chemicals and that will be a good thing then for every child i mean the. The insanity here knows no bounds whatsoever. This is also A woman who calls herself an adult female demon seems kind of appropriate with the suggestion. Like this and she had a little message for anybody who disagrees with her for the record. I understand that. Y'all just aren't capable of wrapping your heads around something like this because if you could then you wouldn't be the way you are probably best to step away and have a juice box. This is beyond your level natal. Puberty became optional. The moment technology became available to enable deliberate choice between natal puberty and puberty induced by cross sex hormones. It became a choice when it became a choice. And i'm really profoundly. Sorry if you can't understand that yes so this is what we're up against right now In this trans movement it just it's Completely out of control right now and insane absolutely insane and if you disagree with it you'll be shut down on on twitter and facebook. If you disagree with it you'll be flagged or maybe just deleted from twitter entirely by the way youtube has now removed over two hundred thousand videos about covid nineteen. So now we're all super-safe took care of it. Information has never been more plentiful or easy to distribute yet. We're sliding into a new age of censorship and suppression encouraged by technology giants and traditional media companies Since june amazon has twice tried to suppress self published booklets that this person has written about covid nineteen and the response to it. The booklets don't contain conspiracy theories he says like the scientists who wrote the great barrington declaration. I simply believe many measures to control the coronavirus damaging counterproductive and unsupported by science will. You can't even say that. On on youtube they remove your video. If you say that on youtube amazon said that as a bookseller we believe that. Providing access to the written word is important including books that some may find objectionable.

Pfizer-BioNTech Announces They Will Test a Third Dose of Their COVID-19 Vaccine
"Visor tech announces. They will test a third dose of their covid. Nineteen vaccine by park pfizer bio intech has begun testing a third dose of its covid nineteen vaccine a small group of people. The vaccine is currently authorized in several countries in a two dose regimen given twenty one days apart and has proven studies to be about ninety five percent effective and protecting against covid nineteen disease but as new and more infectious genetic variants of the covid. Nineteen virus start circulating so far. Scientists have identified three major strains i found in the uk south africa and brazil respectively questions about how will authorise vaccines can still thwart. The virus have become more urgent pfizer bio and tech have already done studies testing blood serum from people vaccinated with their original shot against some of these variants and found that the immune response triggered by the two doses is still quite protective and fact in the case of the uk variant referred to as be one one seven levels of antibodies produced by the vaccine regimen. An important immune defense against the virus were similar to levels against the original non mutated virus however the researchers found that the level of antibodies produced by the original vaccine were lower against the south african variant referred to as b one three five one finds her bio n tek hasn't yet completed the same level of rigorous testing against the brazilian variant referred to as p one so far we haven't heard any reports of breakthrough cases among vaccinated people related to any of the new variants says mikhail dole ston chief scientific officer at pfizer referring to serious infections with the variant viruses among vaccinated people. But we always want to be one step ahead of the virus that made us think about generating data on a third boost. We are going to give people who were part of our phase one to study from last summer. A boost with another dose of the current vaccine. We expect that the antibody levels may rise against current variants to strengthen protection. Only a clinical trial will prove that pfizer bio tek plans to vaccinate one hundred forty four people who were enrolled in the company's early phase studies. Who received their second dose between six and twelve months ago in the event that the additional dose does not enhance people's protection dole. Stone says pfizer has also developed a new vaccine targeting the south african variant which has shown the most resistance to vaccine induced immunity so far because the m. are in a technology on which the original vaccine was built only requires the right genetic sequence to build a new version. Dole stone says developing a new vaccine targeting. The south african variant only took six to eight weeks in about a month or so he says pfizer plans to begin a trial in which researchers will give participants who got two doses of the original vaccine a third dose of the new variant vaccine. It's all part of a dry run for what might become a routine process and coming years shifting to new versions of the vaccine after a few months or a year or so similar to the way seasonal flu vaccines change depending on which strains are circulating each influenza season producing the new covid nineteen vaccine and testing it. Dawson says paves the way for more rapid changes in the future. If the virus mutates beyond what we see today we will already have data on how to do a strange shift and rapidly change production. We could just feed the production process with a different are in a and everything else would be the same. He stresses that the original vaccine that received us food and drug administration. Emergency use authorization continues to protect well against all variants of the virus but that all of these measures are ways to constantly have options to stay ahead of the virus and move very fast if we see less protection against any new mutant strains.
Early Data Suggests Moderna's COVID-19 Vaccine Is Nearly 95% Effective

Nineteen vaccine is nearly ninety. Five percent effective. And you can keep it in the fridge by the associated. Press for the second time this month. There's promising news from a covid. Nineteen vaccine candidate maderna's said monday. Its shots provide strong protection. A dash of hope against the grim backdrop of corona virus surges in the us and around the world. Madonna said its vaccine appears to be ninety. Four point five percent effective. According to preliminary data from the company's still ongoing study a week ago competitor pfizer announced. Its own covid. Nineteen vaccine appeared similarly effective news. That puts both companies on track to seek permission within weeks for emergency use in the us. Dr steven hoc madonna's president welcomed the really important milestone but said having similar results from two different companies is. What's most reassuring that should give us all hope that actually a vaccine is going to be able to stop this pandemic and hopefully get us back to our lives. Hoge told the associated press. It won't be maderno alone that solves this problem. It's going to require many vaccines to meet the global demand. He added a vaccine. Can't come fast enough as virus cases. Top eleven million in the us of the weekend one million of them recorded and just the past week. The pandemic has killed more than one point. Three million people worldwide more than two hundred forty five thousand of them in the us. Still if the food and drug administration allows emergency use of maderna's or pfizer's candidates there will be limited rationed supplies before the end of the year. Both require people to get two shots several weeks apart but darna expects to have about twenty million doses earmarked by the us by the end of twenty twenty pfizer its german partner bio intech. Expect to have about fifty million doses. Globally by year's end maderna's vaccine created with the national institutes of health is being studied and thirty thousand volunteers. He received either the real vaccination or a dummy shot on sunday and independent monitoring board broke the code to examine ninety five infections. That were recorded. Starting two weeks after volunteers second does and discovered all but five illnesses occurred in participants who got the placebo. The study is continuing and madonna acknowledged the protection rate might change as more covid. Nineteen infections are detected and added to the calculations also. It's too soon to know how long protection lasts both cautions apply to pfizer's vaccine as well but madonna's independent monitors reported some additional promising tidbits. All eleven severe covid. Nineteen cases were among placebo recipients. And there were no significant. Safety concerns the main side effects. Were fatigue muscle aches and injection site pain after the vaccines second dose at rates that hogue characterized as more common than with flu shots but on par with others such as shingles the cambridge massachusetts. Companies vaccine is among eleven candidates in late stage testing around the world. Four of them in huge studies in the us both modern shots and the pfizer bio intech candidate or so called 'em arina vaccine's a brand new technology. They aren't made with the corona virus itself. Meaning there's no chance anyone could catch it from the shots instead. The vaccine contains a piece of genetic code that trains the immune system to recognize the spiked protein on the surface of the virus. The results were a surprise. Scientists have warned for months that any cove nineteen shot may be only as good as flu vaccines which are about fifty percents effective. Another steep. Challenge distributing doses. That must be kept very cold. Both madonna and pfizer shots are frozen but at different temperatures. Madonna announced monday that once thought its doses can last longer in a refrigerator than initially thought up to thirty days. Pfizer shots require long. Term storage at ultra cold temperatures.

Usa dot org uk authorizes insurgency use of pfizer bio intech covid nineteen vaccine by lauren near guard. Pfizer and bio. Intech say. They've won permission wednesday for emergency use of their covid nineteen vaccine in britain. The world's first corona virus shot that's backed by rigorous science and a major step toward eventually ending the pandemic. the move makes britain one of the first countries to begin vaccinating. Its population as it tries to curb. Europe's deadliest covid nineteen outbreak. Other countries aren't far behind the us. And the european union also are vetting. The pfizer shot along with a similar vaccine made by competitor. Moderna inc pfizer said it would immediately begin shipping limited supplies to the uk and has been gearing up for even wider distribution if given a similar nod by the us food and drug administration. A decision expected as early as next week but doses everywhere are scarce and initial. Supplies will be rationed until more is manufactured in the first several months of next year visor. Co albert birla called the uk decision. A moment we are focusing on moving with the same level of urgency to safely supply. A high quality vaccine around the world bore said in a statement while the uk has altered enough pfizer vaccine for twenty million people. It's not clear. How many will arrive. By year's end. And adding to the distribution challenges is that it must be stored at ultra cold temperatures two doses. Three weeks apart are required for protection first in line. The uk government says our frontline healthcare workers and nursing home residents followed by older adults british regulators. Also were considering. Another shot made by astrazeneca and oxford university but prime minister. Boris johnson has warned. We must i navigate a hard winter of restrictions to try to curb the virus until there's enough vaccine to go around. Every country has different rules determining when an experimental vaccine is safe and effective enough to use intense political pressure to be the first to roll out a rigorously. Scientifically tested shot colored the race in the us and britain even as researchers pledged to cut no corners and contrast china and russia have offered different vaccinations to their citizens ahead of late. Stage testing the shots made by us based pfizer and its german partner bio intech were tested in tens of thousands of people and while that study isn't complete early results suggest. The vaccine is ninety five percent effective at preventing mild to severe covid nineteen disease the company's told regulators that of the first one hundred seventy infections detected in study volunteers. Only eight were among people who'd received the actual vaccine and the rest had gotten a dummy shot. This is an extraordinarily strong protection. Dr uber sahin. A bio intex. Ceo recently told the associated press. The companies are reported. No serious side effects. Although vaccine recipients may experience temporary pain and flu-like reactions immediately after injections but experts caution that a vaccine cleared for emergency use is still experimental and the final testing must be completed still to be determined is whether the pfizer bio tech shots protect against people spreading the coronavirus without showing symptoms. Another question is how long protection lasts. The vaccine also has been tested in only a small number of children none younger than twelve. And there's no information on its effects in pregnant women.
The First U.S. Shipments of COVID-19 Vaccines Will Include 6.4 Million Doses
"Presented by raytheon technologies our nearly two hundred thousand engineers researchers and people with purpose are building the future today. We're pushing the limits of known science to go deeper into space advance aviation and build smarter defense systems that protect all of us here at home. That's the future of aerospace and defense learn more at rtx dot com the first us shipments of covid nineteen vaccines will include six point four million doses by alice park with three vaccine makers saying that they're covid. Nineteen vaccines are at least ninety percent effective. The us government is gearing up plans to distribute the shots across the country and a november twenty four th briefing members of the department of health and human services which oversees the centers for disease control and prevention and the food and drug administration and operation warp speed provided. The latest information on the vaccine. Rollout most importantly hhs secretary alex as our said he's ready to work with the incoming biden administration's transition team on vaccine rollout plans following a decision by the general services administration. To begin the handoff. I reiterated my firm commitment to the transition planning and execution will be professional cooperative and collaborative and the best spirit of looking out for the health and well being of the american people a czar said during the briefing. He previously said that he would not initiate transition communications until the gsa decision. Here's what the operation warp speed team which is tasked with supporting development manufacturing and distribution of covid nineteen vaccines revealed during the briefing. An fda committee will meet december tenth to review pfizer's vaccine a panel of independent experts convened by the fda will review studies from each vaccine to determine if they are safe and effective enough to distribute to the public. I up and german biotech firm bio intech which filed an emergency use authorization request for their covid. Nineteen vaccine on november twentieth. The fda group will meet to evaluate the shot which the company say is ninety five percent effective in protecting against covid nineteen on december tenth. Madonna is expected to a similar request to the fda soon and the committee will meet again to evaluate the massachusetts. Based company's application. Astrazeneca will likely follow as well. The first batch will include six point. Four million doses. General gus purna chief. Operating officer of operation warp speed said that he told state health departments on november twentieth. That six point four million doses of vaccine will be available once the fda issues. The i e you a at this point visor shots will most likely be the first to get the green light. What will happen. If more becomes available after the initial push is we will go out following a weekly cadence to distribute doses accordingly with forty million doses by the end of the year. How much vaccine. Each state initially receives will be based on a rough per capita calculation. Pfizer has conducted dry. Run shipping drills. Pfizer's by you in tex- vaccine which is based on new m are in a technology needs to be kept at minus seven degrees celsius minus eighty degree celsius in the us. Visor has designed special thermal packaging to ship its doses if replenished with dry ice the doses can remain in those containers for fifteen to twenty days once removed the vials can be stored in a refrigerator for up to five days in order to train workers who are receiving the doses. Pfizer has conducted dry runs of shipping. Its vaccine to ten locations. Purna said such trials would be done with all sixty four public health jurisdictions receiving vaccines from the cdc most of which are state health departments to make sure those administering the vaccine or comfortable handling it. I've personally gone through the process. Put my hand in the box. Pulled out trays times myself in the execution. And it's a very very doable process. He said the pfizer containers will include. Nine hundred. Seventy five doses. We feel confident that if states plan dosages in the right locations with the drumbeat and cadence of regular manufacturing administration of the vaccine to a minimum amount of nine hundred seventy five. Doses is very doable. Within twenty days he added once the first batch of vaccines are shipped. The next batch will be dispatched within twenty one days for the pfizer vaccine and twenty eight days for the moderna vaccine so people who received their first dose will be able to get their second shot wants. The manufacturing reaches a regular cadence shipments will be distributed. Weekly states will be able to order vaccines through a twenty four seven and the doses will be shipped the following day. It will take months until most of the american population can be vaccinated. Vaccine manufacturing will gradually increase as more shots are authorized by the fda and people will be vaccinated according to guidelines set by the cd's advisory committee on immunization practices or a cip. The ac ip recently released principles that it says should guide who gets vaccinated. I these factors include risk as well as equity healthcare workers first responders and others with jobs will be first in line with the elderly and those with chronic health conditions next. It likely won't be until next spring or summer that the majority of the american public will be eligible to get vaccinated. We are bridging to when we have vaccines i for the most vulnerable like healthcare workers first responders and eventually the brought american population as our said until then wash your hands watch your distance and wear face coverings when you can't watch your distance and stay out of settings where you can't do those things.
Exclusive: Pfizer CEO Discusses Submitting the First COVID-19 Vaccine Clearance Request to the FDA
"Presented by raytheon technologies our nearly two hundred thousand engineers researchers and people with purpose are building the future today. We're pushing the limits of known science to go deeper into space advance aviation and build smarter defense systems that protect all of us here at home. That's the future of aerospace and defense learn more at rtx dot. Com exclusive pfizer ceo discusses submitting the first covid nineteen vaccine clearance request to the fda by alice park on friday. Pfizer's ceo and chairman albert birla announced that the company has filed a request to the us food and drug administration for emergency use authorization of its covid. Nineteen vaccine making it the first to do so and a discussion on time. One hundred talks borlase says that. If the fda authorizes the vaccine the company will be ready within hours from receiving the green light to start distributing the vaccine. Pfizer has been manufacturing doses. Even wild safety and efficacy tests were ongoing in order to avoid delays in shipping wants authorized according to bora pfizer is on track to deliver the fifty million doses promised to the us government by the end of the year with one point three billion doses through year in an in depth conversation about the journey. The company has taken in developing its vaccine borel emitted that throughout the process. He wasn't always sure that having a safe and effective vaccine ready for fda review in less than a year was possible. Conviction is a part of it. So i was always telling our teams that we will make it and we will make it by october and if not us then who he says but i knew that it wasn't extremely risky suggestion. I knew it was going to be difficult. And the stars needed to be aligned. All the way to the end. Pfizer capitalized on a partnership begun. Twenty with german company bio intech which was founded by a husband and wife team of scientists with expertise in genetic technology called 'em aren a platform is fast and flexible for developing vaccines. Since it only requires knowing the genetic sequence of the virus the vaccine will target rather than growing and manipulating the virus. In question still. No 'em are in a based vaccine against an infectious disease had ever been approved so pfizer and bio intech began exploring whether influence might be the first instead when the pandemic hit a year later. The teams shifted their attention to sars covy to the novel corona virus. That causes covid nineteen with surprising. Success borlase says the partnership is built on a mutual focus on advancing science and the two companies began work including sharing confidential information before signing a formal contract since those agreements can take months in fact we are still finalising the contractual obligations. We have that we need to sign with them says paula. It's the perfect relationship for me to her. Shaheen bio and co founder and chief executive is a wonderful human being and a great scientist. He shares the same passion as i do about saving lives. And i'm very optimistic. That not only will we do very well together. Bringing a covid nineteen vaccine to the world but later hopefully a flu vaccine orla also believes the success of the pfizer biotech vaccine as well as that of massachusetts based biotech moderna which also has an m. r. n. a covid nineteen vaccine candidate show to be ninety four and a half percent effective validates the aren a platform and makes it a serious contender for future vaccines and drugs against emerging infectious diseases that validity of 'em are in vaccines will be further tested wants. Their efficacy can be compared to those of other vaccines that use the more proven methods of relying on weakened cold viruses to deliver a viral material to the immune system or selected fragments of viral proteins while the expressed concern about the scepticism and mistrust that many americans have expressed about the covid nineteen vaccines mostly because they were developed so quickly borel says he hopes the completion of the election and the magnitude of the and safety data. Start to reassure people. The problem is that this vaccine and the pandemic in general became the focal point of political debate. He says it was discussed and political rather than scientific terms. We reached unthinkable point. That wearing a mask is a political statement. Which i think is wrong. Wearing a mask is something you need to do because science is telling you to do it. He noted that in an effort to reassure the public about the scientific integrity of the vaccine development and testing process vaccine makers in the pharmaceutical industry came together in an unprecedented show of support against political pressure. By pledging to stick to scientific standards and nothing else myself. I released a lot of letters saying i will never succumb to any political pressure. He says the only pressure we feel adviser is the pressure. Seven billion people around the world are giving us solution to this. Pandemic vaccine makers are a little less united on the question of whether they should profit from a pandemic shot while some have said they will price their vaccines so they don't profit from them. Borlase says pfizer is making its vaccine available on a non for profit basis only for lower income countries receiving vaccines through the world health organization vaccine distribution coalition. Run by gaffey. We have elected for developed countries to give the vaccine at a very low price around nineteen dollars fifty cents. We believe the price allows governments all over the world to give the vaccine free to their citizens he says if you think about the economic value of vaccine. I'm not speaking about the human value because there is no way to measure human life. I think the millions of jobs that will not be lost that hopefully will come back and the billions and economic value. That a successful vaccine will enable. I think it's not appropriate to discuss if we sell it at nineteen dollars. Fifty cents per dose. Pour la would not speculate on how long the fda might take to decide on the company's e you a request but given the urgency of the pandemic. That decision could come soon. The agency will likely take into consideration the fact that the vaccines ninety. Five percent effectiveness is in protecting against cova disease not preventing infection from the virus but with cases of covid nineteen continuing to surge around the world stalling. The virus and preventing people from getting sick would be a welcome advantage. More studies will also explore whether people who don't become sick because they are vaccinated are less likely to spread infection. If that's the case then the vaccines will be even more critical for controlling the pandemic. I hope the same time next year we will be in a very very different place. He says when you have vaccine protection that is that high ninety five percent. For example. The effectiveness level pfizer's vaccine is shown in studies. It takes less time to be able to develop protection through vaccination scheme. So i truly believe the light at end of the tunnel is not only real but it is bright and is coming. We need to be patient.

Just search turbo tax tips wherever you listen to podcasts. Pfizer bio intech have started testing. They're covid nineteen vaccine in children under twelve by alice. Park alejandra and mirasol gerardo are nine years old but already making a little bit of history. The twin sisters are among the first young children to get vaccinated with a covert nineteen shot and pfizer bio intex study of its vaccine and kids underage twelve alejandra and mirasol had their blood drawn in the morning on march twenty fourth then got their first dose of the two dose vaccine later that afternoon at duke university medical center one of four study sites in the us for the trial their primary concern was. Is it going to hurt. Says their father. Dr charles gerardo chief of emergency medicine at duke university school of medicine. They're not too worried about the long term side effects. They're looking at the moment. Not the future testing the vaccine in younger. Children will answer critical questions. About how much immunity the shots can provide and potentially give parents and education officials more confidence and reopening schools while it appears that younger children don't get asked with cova older teens and adults do how these children's immune system's response to the virus and the vaccine remains a black box. The trial will also help. Provide some clarity on those questions visor. Bioenergy says it will test the same vaccine that is currently authorized for emergency use in the us for those sixteen years and older but this time in children aged six months to eleven years. The company is currently wrapping up. Study of its to dose shot in adolescence aged twelve to fifteen years in the us and europe. The latest pediatric trial will follow the same at three phased approach as adult study with phase. One involving one hundred forty. Four children aged five to eleven years at duke boston children's hospital. Cincinnati children's hospital and johns hopkins. Who will all receive the vaccine but be randomly assigned one of three dosages. If the vaccine is safe in this age group children aged two to four years will be tested and if safe in that group. The youngest children from six months to two years will get the vaccine. Depending on the immune responses these children generate the scientists adviser bio intech will make a decision about the safest and most effective dose with which to proceed in. Its face to face phase three studies. Those will include a total of about forty five hundred children. Broken down in the same age categories this time randomly assigned to receive either the vaccine or placebo in a two to one ratio. The results will be analyzed after six months to determine if the children receiving the vaccine both generated a stronger immune response than those getting placebo and that the response was on par with responses vaccinated adults. If that's the case then finds her bio intech will submit the data to the us food and drug administration to expand authorization to younger children and hopefully start vaccinating them by early next year. Dr manual walter professor of pediatrics and chief medical officer at the human vaccine institute who has overseeing the trial there says the study will answer important questions about the safety and dosing of the vaccine for children specifically whether younger children will need a different dose than adolescents and adults. The trial will test dose about one third that of the current adult dose another. That is about half the adult dose as well as the adult does while the pfizer bio tech covid. Nineteen shot is the. I m are innate technology based vaccine of any kind to gain fda authorization. Walter says it's likely to be safe in children. I don't think it's the platform so much that i would worry about for young children. I feel comfortable. Giving the ima- rene to young children. The questions of will they have side effects. Will the vaccine be tolerable to children and do. We need to use a smaller dose. In young kids are the biggest things so far. Walter says that they have seen an overwhelming response to the pediatric trial with parents. Like the gerardo expressing interest in enrolling their children both gerardo and his wife who is an infectious disease physician at duke are vaccinated and he says before his daughter is joined the trial they discussed volunteering with the girls. They understand that the results are going to impact other kids. And that's one of the lessons. We want to teach them with this experience. He says that this was one of the ways to contribute to help other people.

COVID-19 Vaccines Work. Heres the Real-World Proof
"Brought to you by hotseat. A new memoir from jeff immelt the former. Ceo of general electric. Raw honest intimate. Hotseat is that. And more as emily recounts like to be a leader in of crisis. Preorder your copy of hot seat now wherever books are sold covid nineteen vaccines work. Here's the real world proof by alice. Park it's one thing to test a vaccine and another to see it in action in the real world more than two months after the first vaccines were authorized in the uk and us. Strong data have emerged showing that the shots are doing what they are supposed to protect people from covid nineteen and a study published february twenty fourth in the new england journal of medicine researchers and israel and the us report that the vaccine made by pfizer bio intech was highly effective in protecting against infection with the covid nineteen virus lowering people's chances of getting sick and the disease especially severe disease and dropping covid nineteen hospitalization rates. The data says mark lips itch professor of epidemiology at harvard t h chan school of public health and co author of. The paper are close to the best possible. News and a separate pre print study published in the lancet on february nineteenth. That hasn't yet been peer reviewed. Health officials in scotland also reported that vaccination with either the pfizer bio tech or astrazeneca shot was helping to lower hospitalization rates due to covid nineteen in the country. Those results were especially encouraging. They said because they showed that even a single dose of either vaccine was eighty five to ninety four percents effective in reducing covid nineteen hospitalization within a little more than a month after the first shot. The recommended doses. Two shots either vaccine. The findings are a real world. Harbinger of what the world can expect as more people get vaccinated and threw up a wall of immunity against the virus. Israel may lead the way in providing hints of where the pandemic is headed with a unique nationally coordinated system for vaccinating people and a tight connection between who gets the shots and their health records. The country is a scientists ideal study group and the new england journal of medicine study researchers included data from nearly six hundred thousand vaccinated people and compared them to a similarly sized group of people who hadn't gotten the vaccine after two doses. The vaccine it turned out was ninety. Two percent effective in preventing infection and among those who did get infected ninety two percents effective and protecting against covid nineteen symptoms ninety two percents effective and protecting against severe disease and eighty seven percent effective and protecting people from needing hospitalization for covid. Nineteen the results mirror. Those found by pfizer and biotech in their late stage. Study of forty four thousand people which also showed the vaccine could dramatically reduce the risk of covid nineteen illness especially severe disease but having real world data further. Bolsters that effectiveness data and could go a long way toward addressing some of the reluctance people feel about getting the shot because it was developed and tested so quickly as encouraging as the results are lips. Says they still don't answer an important question about the protection that vaccines provide how long that protection or immunity lasts. We still don't know how good that vaccine is three months out or he says that's the unique situation in israel may also shed some light in coming months if similar studies continue researchers can monitor any changes in vaccinated people's antibody levels and get an idea of weather protection against the covid virus waning or remain. Strong there is lots of reason to believe that. It's going to be good based on what we know about immunology and the durability of immune responses to vaccines he says bought more data will be needed to confirm that.
Breaking Down What COVID-19 Vaccine Effectiveness Means
"Breaking down what covid. Nineteen vaccine effectiveness means by alice. Park the us now has three safe and effective covid nineteen vaccines being shipped around the country and making it into people's arms all meet the us food and drug administration's threshold for protecting people from cova nineteen disease yet. Two of them are about ninety. Five percent efficacious while another is sixty six percent efficacious. Which may make tempting to rank them and assume that people receiving the sixty six percent efficacious shot are somehow less protected against covid nineteen. That's not the case however since it's not really possible to compare the vaccines to each other to start. There's a difference between efficacy and effectiveness. Efficacy refers to the results for how well a drug or vaccine works based on testing while effectiveness refers to how well these products work in the real world and a much larger of people most people however use them interchangeably. Next it's important to understand what these companies were actually measuring to come up with their efficacy numbers and the case of the covid nineteen vaccines. The researchers were measuring. How well they're vaccines protected against symptoms of covid nineteen. So they're vaccine efficacy numbers referred to how well they lowered people's chance of getting sick with covid nineteen pfizer by owen. Tech's vaccine is ninety. Five percent efficacious meaning that four vaccinated people it was ninety five percent efficacious and protecting people from getting covid nineteen symptoms. It does not mean that ninety five percent of people vaccinated won't get covid nineteen and five percent will similarly maderna's vaccine is ninety four percent efficacious. So it was ninety four percent efficacious in protecting people from covid nineteen and johnson. And johnson's vaccine is sixty six percent efficacious in doing the same. But that doesn't tell the whole story for a few reasons. First the vaccines work in different ways. Visor bio intech and madonna developed their vaccines using 'em in a technology which involves taking the genetic code for the spike protein of the sars covy to virus and encasing it in a fat based particle that is injected into the body once inside sales those viral genes instruct immune cells to produce copies of the protein which in turn switches the immune system. Interaction churning out sells like antibodies among other activities if the vaccinated person then gets infected with the actual virus. The body is ready to quickly. Produce those same antibodies that can stick to the virus and block it from infecting cells. Johnson and johnson janssen's vaccine uses a different strategy a weakened cold virus that has reprograms to include the code for the spike protein. Once inside the body the viral genes trigger a similar dedicated response against the virus because vaccines use different ways. To alert the immune system. The differing technologies could lead to varying degrees of efficacy second each vaccine has different dosing. Regimens visor bio intex and modernise shots require two doses in pfizer bio intex case. The two shots are one days apart. And in maderna's case they are twenty eight days apart. Janssen's vaccine is a single shot. Pfizer bio intech and madonna say. Their shots can stimulate the immune system after a single dose. But the second dose is needed to trigger the maximum response. Janssen's scientists are also testing a booster dose of their vaccine to see if it to might amplify the immune response third the vaccine companies started recording covid nineteen symptoms at different times after vaccination to see how well their shots could prevent disease and their respective late stage studies visor bio intech started recording symptoms seven days after people received the second shot of its vaccine or placebo. Madonna started fourteen days after the second dose and jansen recorded results from both fourteen days in twenty eight days after it single dose for the vaccines were tested at different times. that's important because of the genetic variants of the virus some of which are more infectious than the original that have emerged in recent months after some companies had already completed initial testing of their vaccines visor bio intech and modern up. Both tested their shots through most of twenty twenty. When sars cov two had not mutated as much so most of the study participants who are infected. Were infected by the same viral strain. Johnson however started its large phase three trial in september and included people in the uk south africa and brazil the three countries where new mutated variants of the virus started to spread quickly. Indeed many of the people in janssen's trial in those countries were infected with the new variants from a scientific point of view that means janssen study provided important clues about how well its vaccine could confront the growing threat of new variants of the virus. That could also explain why the janssen vaccine's efficacy is lower than those of the pfizer bio intech and maternal shots. In fact studies have since shown that among people vaccinated with pfizer biontech and moderna vaccines level of antibodies against the south african. Variant in particular are up to sixfold lower compared to levels against the non mutated virus. So for all of these reasons comparing the three vaccines is a bit like comparing apples to oranges. What's important is that all fight covid. Nineteen according to the fda's standard of efficacy. Which is that vaccines should be. At least fifty percent efficacious and protecting people from disease and all are extremely effective in protecting people from getting severely ill willed or dying from nineteen which ultimately is what we'd won't any vaccine to do.

Call Between AstraZeneca and E.U. To Go Ahead Amid Blame-Game Over Vaccine Supply
"Call between astrazeneca and e you to go ahead amid blame game over vaccine supply by nikos. Chris loris jonathan sterns and susie ring the clash between the european union and drugmaker astrazeneca appeal. See over covid. Nineteen vaccine delays temporarily descended into chaos on wednesday before the two sides confirmed that a crunch call to resolve. The standoff will take place earlier on wednesday an e you officials said the company had pulled out of the plant talks with the european commission and government representatives. The official who asked not to be named said astra executives. Had senator e email on tuesday evening withdrawing because there are too many moving parts the cancellation was disputed by astro and the eu subsequently said discussions were back on the contradictory statements. Were just the latest twist a saga that erupted late last week. When astro warned of delays at a production plant in belgium that was followed by public disagreement over contract terms accusations of blame and even threats to put limits on vaccine exports the latest confusion which pushed the life and death issue into the realm of farce is also an echo of the broader disorganization. That's marked the e. U.'s rolled out of corona virus shots. So far iskar rake astra's executive vice president for europe and canada will take part in the meeting where the eu wants to get more details about the delay to the roll out of shots. Governments are desperate to speed up the vaccination as it's proved sluggish so far and also keen to avoid taking the blame. The on off status of the call emerged after astra chief executive pascal story. Oh used an interview. With european newspapers to deflect responsibility to the eu. He said the company has a so called best effort agreement. That doesn't specify a quantity. That's because the eu insisted on receiving the astrazeneca vaccine about the same time as the uk despite putting in its order three months later. A key. part of the disagreement is the use of vaccines produced in uk. Factories speaking on condition of anonymity an e. You officials said that soro's claim that the uk has priority on vaccines from british. Plants doesn't exist in the contract the e. u.'s vaccination paces lagging way behind the us and the uk in terms of the share of its population inoculated. According to bloomberg's global tracker sorios said that once astra gets e regulatory approval expected within days. It will ship at least three million doses immediately with target of seventeen million by february. That should help. Europe accelerate vaccinations and get economies closer to exiting damaging lockdowns that have crippled industries and caused growing discontent. Sorios suggested he understands that. The situation is difficult for leaders across europe where brussels has coordinated vaccine buying program. Everybody is getting kind of a bit. You know aggravated or emotional about those things. He said in the comments published in la repubblica and other newspapers. But i understand because the commission is managing the process for the whole of europe in an effort to alleviate supply shortages french drugmaker.

The company's previous data which led to the us food and drug administration's emergency use authorization included an average of two months of follow up of the study participants and showed ninety five percent efficacy against the disease the longer term data will form the basis of pfizer bio and tech's planned request to the fda for formal approval of the vaccine soon. It is an important step to further confirmed the strong efficacy and good safety data. We have seen so far especially in a longer term. Follow up says uber. Sahin ceo and co founder of bio and tech other results the datum involving nearly twelve thousand people who have been followed for at least six months after vaccination also showed the two dose shot was one hundred percent efficacious and protecting them from severe disease as defined by the us centers for disease control which means any disease requiring hospitalization intensive care or a ventilator and ninety five percent efficacious in protecting against severe disease by the fda's broader definition which includes any respiratory distress or shortness of breath at rest or oxygen saturation below ninety. Three percent the companies also reported encouraging results. The vaccines ability to protect against the worrisome viral variant. Be one three five one which was first identified in south africa in late twenty twenty. The variant virus can spread more quickly among people in can't be blocked by several of the antibody. Drugs developed to treat covid nineteen infection previous studies by the company's showed that antibodies generated by vaccinated. People against this particular strain of the virus. Were several fold lower than those mounted against the non mutant virus but still sufficient to adequately protect people from covid nineteen. The release did not specify. If the data from the eight hundred participants in south africa was collected mostly before or after the variant began circulating but noted that there were no cases of covid nineteen disease reported among the vaccinated and nine cases among the placebo group researchers sequenced the virus from these patients and six of the nine belonged to the variant strain. The findings support the company's position that the vaccine remains effective against the variant.
