We've arrived mike flannery. The president says everybody's going to be eligible by may first governor pritzker says we're game here in illinois. Do you believe it i do. I think they the after a rough start. I talk peres. Says a guy who went around to the walmart and cvs is and the to supercenter over one hundred eighth woodland asking. Have you got any leftover back. Seen vaccines for the poor. Things have really gotten a lot better. I've got both my doses of the pfizer vaccine. I think this thing is finally on track. And i see mike flannery down there in beverly get your green tie in the irish flag. You're getting ready for a certain holiday in a few weeks. Megan hickey there's been a lot of confusion at the united center about who exactly has been eligible. The city has changed. Its eligibility standards because so many folks from outside of chicago or signing up as of now who is eligible to get the vaccine at the united center right now. They're still in the one. A one b Young people within the city limits and really the rules changed in the middle of the game because obviously when people started signing up it was a much broader eligibility than that and that was honestly source of a lot of confusion over the weekend and even into monday and tuesday because you know the the eligibility requirements changed in a lot of the people who maybe were outside of chicago who had signed up. Were confused they do. What does my appointment still count. If i go there you know my still going to be able to get my second dose. Are they going to say good luck. Find it somewhere else so there were just a lot. We were getting a lot of confusion about that and you know that on top of some scheduling issues. People getting error messages when they were trying to sign up. You know saying oh no actually. Your appointments been rescheduled and then another email saying disregard that that email was was not It's not accurate so meghan or those. Yeah i'm still ongoing. Or if they have the iron those out we're hearing less you know less confusion about it. I'm i'm not certain that it's been entirely ironed out. I know we asked how many people got error messages. How many people were involved in that which we never actually got a hard number on that but just being out there. I was at the united center. Monday on tuesday monday. Even before you know nations had started a lot of people were complaining about that. But i will say once. They made their way through the vaccination processing came out on the other end. They were so grateful and hopeful and almost had forgotten that they were so Set before they had gone into. Get their shot in greg pratt part of this roll out. The city says now they will be reaching out to the hardest hit zip codes to urge people to come to the united center to get their vaccination. Is that helping at all. drive up the equity numbers. Yeah i think so. I think the making it eligible for neighborhoods like south shore little villages. Ellison is is clearly going to drive that up there are people from those neighborhoods who are signing up for it I think that that's been very helpful. That was major problem in the beginning. It's less of a problem but it's probably one of those things that without more. Without ongoing targeting an ongoing efforts aimed at reaching those communities can very easily all off. Which would be bad. So it's so it's so they're they're working consciously work on an and that's probably a good thing

Cvs as their partner and then they also have fairly large staffs so we expect. This could be you know upwards of about three million folks. We have committed that we will do at least three clinics within each of these long term care facilities the first and second to give the first dose in the booster and then the third clinic to really be able to offer to any patients who were admitted in between our first and second clinic. That booster shot. How many people does cvs have working on keeping track of the bureaucratic piece of this a lot and listen. We've got my team in retail pharmacy. We've got our partners and operations and then our field organization right that the folks who managed the stores manage the pharmacies and the pharmacists and technicians. Themselves that's gonna be thousands of people. When do you hope to finish the entire process for this population for long term care the start dates are going to be rolling based on individuals state decisions but we would expect that from the date we start in any given jurisdiction it will take us about six to eight weeks to vaccinate fully the vast majority of the population meaning. We will have their first and their second dose complete both for the long term care contract and for the general population. How are you thinking about the potential financial benefits for cvs yet. Listen you know. Cms which is the center for medicaid and medicare services has released that they'll be providing administration fee for the doses themselves and that administration fee is very much in line with what we get for other vaccines that we administer and our agreements with federal government. Don't have any other financial component to them other than that per shot administrative fee. What can the experience of immunizing people at long term care facilities teach us about the wider vaccine distribution for the general population. Listen this is going to be our first experience handling these particular products and they are in line with what we would see from other specialty medications other vaccines that we've handled in the past. And so i think that you know that will create efficiencies in the process of administration just having people get those reps for the broader population right. It's i anticipate that right now. You're seeing a lot of vaccine hesitancy across the country. But i anticipate that as more and more people in these first phases get back whether that be in the long term care facilities or the healthcare workers and the rest of the population sees that. Hey people are okay after getting this vaccine and we're starting to actually see infection rates drop in those populations. I think that's going to help to remove a lot of that vaccine hesitancy as well. When are you gonna get vaccinated. I will get vaccinated as soon as i am. Eligible to get activated. Like i trust the process. I've been able to hear from some of the experts on this. And i have full confidence that you know i will be safe getting one of these vaccines and that is the right thing to do. So as soon as you know. I'm in a population that is eligible to get it. I'm getting that vaccine. So what are the stakes for. Cvs right now in getting vaccine distribution. Right look i think this is one of the largest mobilizations. That we've ever undertaken has company. And i also think it's one of the most purpose driven operations that we've ever undertaken the health crisis of our lifetime so to be able to play a role in ending that is a huge responsibility and the huge opportunity. So this is a calling that we wanna make sure we get.

"Six forty one at klif and a monday morning with david. Amy you raise the question. Last hour i believe on who would be distributing all these vaccines to people once it's delivered to be Administered right and your mom asked the the quest. She's not here but she asked you over the weekend. Right that if if you need to get to vaccine to douse his majority is right. This is gonna make sure who's going to keep track that you get the second one when you're supposed to get and that sort of thing and this the first i'd heard of this and this is i think a good idea yeah. Cvs and walgreens have been tapped by the trump administration to help with the vaccinations. They're going to vaccinate more than three million residents of nursing homes and other long term facilities. And actually i've seen ads. I'm trying to think it was on instagram or facebook. But one of the social media sites where. Cbs was looking for healthcare workers to hire override to do this. It's a good time to be a nurse or other health care worker If you're looking for a job. Cvs and walgreens together have twenty thousand pharmacy locations. Half of those are within five miles of my home. I think was gonna say. I think within within two miles i have three. Cbs's oh yeah easily so it just it makes sense. The government doesn't have the infrastructure to do this and they should not have we don't need the government to do everything know this is the texas model. Yes so Jeffrey levi former director of the nonprofit. Trust for america's health said we're in a situation we don't have a public sector the table to do something like this. We have to work with the system we have in. Us army general gusts purna told reporters this week. I'm incredibly confident that these public private partnerships are ready. I always say if the world ends. Cvs and walgreens will still be open right because they're always open even on holidays everything. He added the pharmacies not always open. Well no but i mean the stores are. This is so funny. Yeah well as if Twenty twenty hasn't been tough enough. One medical expert now claims that Covid nineteen long. everything else could cause. Ad erectile dysfunction. yeah. I don't know why we tend to look at that as the sex something to laugh about. I guess it's a problem. It's of course it's providence dina grayson says. We know now that people who have long term health effects from this virus neurological complications and now for men who are watching this there is some real concern here that men could have long term issues of e d from the virus because we know that it causes issues in the vascular the vascular system very good. I've never seen basket later. The word grayson added. This is something real concern. Long-term lifelong potentially complications. That's the thing is we don't know what the long term effects of this virus all right like some people get it and they're fine then later on they have symptoms not symptoms but they have cited hughes. Yeah still problems. You know complications. I guess you should say right. Twenty two thousand americans have been have been Been polled and found that sixty percent. Say they are now living paycheck to paycheck as the year draws to a close especially if they've been furloughed are laid off because of covid nineteen. I don't know exactly what paycheck to paycheck. They don't have any meaning. They don't have any savings that they need their money to pay their bills. I just think that the term is probably Probably subjective to some to some extent. It's like i've always considered you know. We live paycheck to paycheck. If you know well some people have money. That's tied up that they can't touch. Yeah but a lot of us are just you know. We're we have to count on being getting paychecks for the next. Let me put it this. Well that's living paycheck to paycheck right but but but is it paycheck to paycheck. If you've got like you know you could. You could survive three months or six months without a now paycheck to paycheck. Means you can't survive without your paycheck. Well way i would define it too. But i don't know if you just ask people and you just use that term paycheck to paycheck specific. This is not that it really matters to you. Know the point is that a lot of people are really sweating. It worried about getting back to work. And let's take the opening business. The biggest hit the normal night out is taken. The biggest hit sixty four percent cutting down. Dining out of ordering takeout. Now they're sixty one percent added. They're seeing fewer movies.

"More traditional delivery. This is one thing domino's and Amazon have used last mile drones none of. Of It's widespread. This is a very viable model. If Say New York City, where decide to shut down some of its streets, except for commercial traffic, this might make sense in in Florida where there are a ton of gated enclosed closed communities full of older people, so all the drone would have to do is Get through the gate and then it could make deliveries. There's use for this, but this is not going to be the widespread way. CVS sends prescriptions out. Although one of the things. I read in this story. Is that and I know that CVS has a big footprint. I didn't realize it was this big one of the stats from neuro is that seventy six percent of people in the United States live within five miles of CVs pharmacy. Over I overstated the number a little bit earlier, but it still stunning. I mean that's an astonishing number and. To your point, this is something that if this test goes well. Does, it rolled out nationwide. Probably not, but this is the sort of thing that they can cherry pick locations. Across the country and say yeah. If you live in this zip code here, they're. All three time zones. Not To pick on Alaska and Hawaii. Yes, okay, yeah, also. What is it six time zones I? Guess we have in the United States if we're going. I'm just thinking continental United States you know what I meant in. I don't know this. This is going to be really interesting test to watch because I do think. If this goes well for CVS, they have a lot of optionality in terms of where they can roll this out Chris. There's a lot of hurdles here because these are prescription drugs when. Delivering to my building and theory that drone could pull up and just leave everything and the front desk. Person could put them in the Amazon lockers. This is much like getting an instant liquor delivery. You actually have to go up to the drone and scan your license, and then it scans you to make sure you're actually you so with INSTA-. My wife can pick it up. It doesn't have to be me in. In the case of this, there are some headaches that person who's ill and older in Florida might not be able to go to the door to get their prescription, so there's a little bit of a gimmick here, but if you look at this, it's just one tool at CVs as disposal there at the forefront and it's it's an interesting case to watch, but again it's not going to be a widespread thing. But in terms of the economics, hot like you imagine cvs. If this goes well, do you imagine this just becomes sort of an added cost that they tack on and pass along to the consumer because the I can't imagine this is an prime. This isn't hey. Pay This annual fee and we'll just lobby and all this other stuff. So there would be some sort of fee attached to it, wouldn't it yeah I would assume a four ninety nine know sorta like a Grub? Hope kind of model, but I also see like so I live in a building with about three hundred fifty units, and maybe a third of the people are elderly. CVS could probably fill up. One drone CVs about a mile down the road or one autonomous vehicle. Tell people. We're going to be at the building at eleven o'clock..

"Spent ten years in my life studying their banking system their financial system. And now how they operate. I'm looking at China's grand strategy and I've spent a lot lot of my own capital in time dealing with some of the most ridiculous issues that are in the marketplace. It is insane that. US Tax payers are backing the World Bank to lend money to a country again. That's advanced as China. The World Bank is supposed to be lending to poor nations that have aggrieved populations populations that have vulnerable populations and we're trying to help lift people up out of poverty. China's got more millionaires around the world. That almost anyone and they are a ravaged ravid consumer of many of the world's top brands and as we all know the largest strategic military competitor in the world that the US has and for some reason we keep keep giving them billions of dollars. Hey Easy I want to thank you for your today. It's good to see you good to see opiates stranger and today Republican Congressman Anthony Gonzalez of Ohio joined US ahead of the hearing scheduled this afternoon. That's on his new. Bill called the ACCOUNTABILITY FOR WORLD BANK LOANS TO CHINA ACT. Let's talk about what you think is happening here. Hi Why. Why do you think that China's still continuing to get loans from the World Bank even though it clearly doesn't meet the guidelines that have been laid out well one of China's strategies development goals also is to essentially influence in some ways take over many of our international institutions? And I think they've done an incredible job at the World Bank. Frankly what they have done internationally or nationally not just in the. US is basically forced people to make a trade and save you want access to our markets which are enormous. You have to play by our rules. And as part of that what that is staying in the World Bank as a member of that can draw loans to me it makes no sense whatsoever why the US tax payer should be backing subsidized discounted rates to the Chinese government so that they can continue their development model which is unbelievably oppressive but also damaging to our economy and our country. How serious do you? I think the United States is your your fellow lawmakers in terms of pulling back holding from pulling back support for the World Bank if this continues well the one something that I think is helpful is that we're getting strong. Leadership from the administration on the China issue specifically and it has bipartisan support. Your even Chuck Schumer support certain things so right now. We introduced our bill a couple of weeks ago. And we're just rounding up co-sponsors. I suspect that we'll be able to turn this into a bipartisan initiative. Time will tell. Things are odd in Congress these days but But having said that I am optimistic at because I haven't heard much pushback at all on on the fundamentals of the bill and and frankly I think the World Bank issue is one. That's it's just not on a lot of people's radar came onto my radar as I started researching ways inside of the Financial Services Committee to push back on Chinese influence and this was the most obvious one and the most glaring being whole That we had in our system and so we went for it and I think others will jump on board as well congressman. I'm glad to hear you say that. This seems like this sort of bill that Elizabeth Warren and president trump could agree on. Are you in your private conversations optimistic that there will be that bipartisan support. Because without that it's it's dead on arrival. Yeah I am now. We did have an interesting fight in the committee on the sandbank with respect to China and I was a little disappointed that some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle while weren't more enthusiastic about putting some provisions in there but this is a different issue and I think this is more obvious issue and so by the World Bank's own rules. China was supposed to graduate years ago that the limit is sixty nine hundred dollars in gross national income China's near ten thousand today day. There's no reason why they shouldn't graduate of. But they've influenced the World Bank to such a degree from an HR standpoint but also just politically they haven't graduated and so I think we need to make sure that they do. Here's what I don't understand. I mean this seems like such a clear cut case. These are the rules. According to the rules they shouldn't be getting these these loans. How complicated is it to clear that up and and for those who are defending this? What what is their argument? Well so there's a second provision which says that on top of the gross national income threshold they have to have developed markets and sophisticated markets in China saying. Hey wait a minute are markets. Aren't sophisticated enough. We can't graduate now. I think that's a horrible argument. Considering the fact that they have two different development banks that compete directly with the World Bank not to mention how develop their economy so they pass the the data threshold of sixty nine hundred mark. But they also pass in my estimation on the sophistication Margaret gets it's laughable that they would try to make that argument but they have support in the international community inside the World Bank for just that I don't think it's crazy. What what will it mean if they can no longer get loans? What will I UH-HUH SO money's fungible right and so if they can draw discounted rates from the World Bank that means that they can deploy capital elsewhere? And so what this would do I believe is it would cut off a particular capital source. That is it that they acquire at a discounted rate enforce them in some ways to play by the rules of the national order. In addition they use their status at the World Bank at to influence the WTO. And so. I think you'd have fallen effects. Not just at the World Bank but also so inside of the WTO that to get them again to play by the rules that they've agreed to themselves which they keep breaking. I want to buy some futures on you.

We started a campaign. We are working with community partners. Be the first create the first tobacco free generation. We've made a lot of progress. We have more than two hundred college and university campuses that are tobacco free today as a result of that program. But you vaping is taking us backwards you see some of the statistics vaping up more than seventy percent with school aged children and I saw some stats recently.
