"Seven of seven on KCRW. from NPR News. I'm Noel King. And I'm Rachel Martin. Good morning. We have hit another milestone in the race to vaccinate the US against covert 19. Half of American adults have now received at least one shot. And as of today, all Americans, Age 16 and up are eligible to sign up for their dose. How many will actually do it? We're going to turn now to Dr Anthony Fauci, the Biden administration's chief medical advisor. Dr Fauci. Thanks for joining us again. Good to be with you. So, as noted, at least 50% of American adults have gotten at least one dose, which is great now that every adult is eligible. What is the best case timeline for everyone to be vaccinated? Well, we're hoping that we get there by our advice. Feed me by July. By the end of May, there will be enough vaccines to vaccinate anyone who would want to be vaccinated and from a logistics standpoint, getting into people's arms. We hope we do it sooner, but no later than July. OK, So you say By the end of May, there should be enough vaccine to put into everyone Does that take into consideration? A pause in the Johnson and Johnson vaccine. We should just remind people that was put on pause because of blood clots and a few women. Right? I mean, right now, If you look at the Mo Danna and the visor commitment this interval now where we're not having J and J. Visor itself has said that they are going to increase. The availability of their doses by 10%. So already it's making up for that. We don't know what's gonna happen with J and J by Friday. We should have an answer, and then we should just get back on track. So we have no doubt that will be able to vaccinate anyone who wants to be vaccinated by that time. You. You have said that the change a vaccine paused, could be lifted by Friday. Do you expect that there's gonna be some kind of restrictions placed on it and age limit or something. You know, Rachel. I don't want to get ahead of the advisory Committee on immunization practices in the CDC, but I would be surprised if they did not have a decision by Friday. The options of several I doubt very much whether they would just cancel it. You never know. But I really doubt that so you have even come back with no inhibitions or you come back with some sort of restrictions. Whatever they may be, and that's what they're doing. Now They're examining the data, all the data that's available and they'll be making that determination that hopefully will move on on Friday. Are you worried that the blood clot issue with the vaccine is going to exacerbate vaccine skepticism? You know, Rachel, There's always that concern, but the way I like to frame it is that this is a very, very rare adverse events. I mean, the one that triggered the pause. Was six out of about seven million, which means it's very, very rare. So what that tells me and I try to communicate to people is that that means the system is working if you're hesitant about vaccine Across you're concerned about safety. This tells you that safety is taking very seriously and also the same surveillance system that picked up those six young women. Who wound up with those complications is the same surveillance system that's used for the tens and tens and tens of millions of doses of Madonna and Fiza. So when the FDA in the CDC say something is safe, you can be sure it's safe. I want to play a clip for you from a conversation we had with Dr Scott Gottlieb last week, is a former administrator of the FDA. Let's listen. I think we get to 150 million vaccines. I think we struggle to get to 160 Million. Beyond that. I think it's going to be difficult. I'm not sure that you have the demand there. He's talking about whether or not people to show up and get the shots. Do you agree with his estimation? Well, you know, I mean, obviously, there are different opinions. What we're trying to do is that we have a really firm outreach type of a situation going a community corps that's getting trusted. Messengers in the community, be their sports figures, celebrities, people in the community, clergy and others to go out and get people to understand. Why It's so important for themselves, so their family and for the community to get vaccinated. I'm sorry, Dad. Well, the big question here is if if Scott Gottlieb is right, and he goes on to say that he doesn't believe the U. S will will get hurt immunity if if we if we stick with those numbers, his estimation. If if that's correct one of the implications if we don't ever get to that magical herd immunity. Well, you know, you gotta be careful because that's kind of an elusive terminology. Rachel, you get his many people vaccinated as you possibly can, and you could be turned around. The dynamics of the outbreak, so we don't want to get stuck on this type of the terminology. It's important that we could go a long way before we get there. So you think it is it? America will be a safer place. We will get back to some semblance of normalcy, even if we don't Vaccinate 80% of the population. Yeah, because we don't know what that number really is. Dr Anthony Fauci, chief medical adviser to the Biden administration. Thank you as always, for your time and perspective. Thank you And thank you for having me. Last week's shooting at a FedEx facility in Indianapolis. Shocked that city. Eight people were killed. Four of them were members of the sick religion. Here's Darren Benson of member station W F Y I Indianapolis police say a trace on the weapons used in last Thursday's shooting found that the gunman purchased them last year. That was after his mother warned the FBI that he might attempt quote Suicide by cop, which prompted authorities to seize a shotgun from the 19 year old former Fed ex employees. Out of the jewel this weekend, US representative Andre Carson called for better gun laws and conversations about mental health. Let's turn this tragedy into a catalyst for change. And create safer communities. Americans. Police say they're investigating the motive, but don't believe race was a factor.

He actually referred to him as uncle because they were close and remembered him as someone who constantly spread joy to those around him. Always love family. And telling everyone he encouraging everyone to help you stay happy. He said. Some sex believed they were targeted because of their religion, But he doesn't think that's the case. Humility. This is a hate against of manner of people who would try to work hard secretary spoke at vigils this weekend. Maninder Singh Gwala is on the board of a Good war a a sick house of worship on the east side of Indianapolis. He said he wants answers as to why the suspect was able to obtain weapons and gain access to the facility so easily simply sending a statement from the higher authorities. Saying this is wear is a tragedy there. Sorry, we don't want that answer. We want that. What are you going to do? Sing? Wala said his community is hurting for everyone affected by gun violence, regardless of the religion. For NPR News. I'm daring Benson in Indianapolis. This'll week, President Biden will meet with international leaders to talk about a new goal for cutting US greenhouse gas emissions. Environmental advocates want a 50% cut by 2030 compared to 2000 and five levels. I asked Lauren Sommer from NPR's climate team. What life would look like in 2030 if we got there? One of the first things he did as president was to rejoin the Paris climate accord. You know, that's the international agreement to limit emissions that former President Trump pulled out of so as part of that every country makes a commitment to cut emissions. The bite administration's commitment is just going to be this overarching framework for all his policies going forward, and, you know, both environmental groups and some major business leaders are pushing him to announce a cut of 50%. Okay, so we'll all be waiting to see what percentage he announces. Why 50% though? What? Specifically about that to these groups like, Yeah, That's what the scientific studies are saying, you know, to avoid the worst impacts of climate change, so things like really extreme heat waves and extreme sea level rise. The world needs to go down to net zero emissions by mid century, so that 2030 goal is what would put the US on a path to do that. But, you know, even supporters like Daniella Rastogi at the Environmental Defense Fund, they say it's it's going to be tough..

But, you know, even supporters like Daniella Rastogi at the Environmental Defense Fund, they say it's it's going to be tough. It's pretty ambitious. This is not an easy target to achieve. We think it is something that is achievable if we really kind of put the pedal to the metal here. So what would the country look like in 2000 and 30? If we're emitting half as much carbon? Yeah, That's something that a number of researchers have looked at. And the biggest change would likely be where our electricity comes from. So solar, wind and other renewable would be a much bigger part of the grid and That's something that's already happening because their cost has come down so much. The flip side of that is that coal power would shrink dramatically. But neat. Holdman, who directs the center for Global Sustainability at the University of Maryland, says that's also already happening. It actually is uneconomical in many cases to continue to burn coal, even regardless of the climate and health impacts of that, so Cole is its struggling already and it's unlikely that it will continue in any significant form beyond 2030. I want to ask you about another big source of emissions, which are cars. Let's say it is 2000 and 30 and we hit the goal and I'm looking around at the roads. What am I seeing? You wouldn't see much different on the roads. Maybe, but you would see very different car dealerships because from half toe, all of new car sales would need to be electric cars by 2030. But On the roads. It might not be that different because there'd still be gas powered cars. You know, cars last a long time, right? You drive them more than a decade. Maybe so any policy change their takes years to be felt. All of these policies would require significant political buy in. Is it likely that the Biden administration could really move fast enough to reach 50% cut? Yeah, it's a good question. There's there's a lot he can do with executive powers. But it would be very difficult for the US to hit that target without congressional action. You know whether it's new spending or new regulation. And you know that's the fine line that buying is going to be walking with international leaders. He's trying to encourage other nations to meet their commitments to cut emissions. So he's gonna have to prove that the U. S conduce what it says it will on climate change. NPR's Lauren Sommer, Thanks so much learned. Thanks.

And as of today, all Americans, Age 16 and up are eligible to sign up for their dose. How many will actually do it? We're going to turn now to Dr Anthony Fauci, the Biden administration's chief medical advisor. Dr Fauci. Thanks for joining us again. Good to be with you. So, as noted, at least 50% of American adults have gotten at least one dose, which is great now that every adult is eligible. What is the best case timeline for everyone to be vaccinated? Well, we're hoping that we get there by off by shooting by July. By the end of May, there will be enough vaccines to vaccinate anyone who would want to be vaccinated and from a logistics standpoint, getting into people's arms.

I don't want to get ahead of the advisory Committee on immunization practices in the CDC, but I would be surprised if they did not have a decision by Friday. Options of several.
