"The Dow down three the NASDAQ down three 85 the S&P down 41 The NFL has just updated its COVID protocols in response to an increase in cases especially among players on the Washington football team Thursday football chiefs and chargers wizards playing Phoenix in the valley of the sun at 9 o'clock tonight 7 31 We have two breaking medical stories to follow this evening first a CDC panel has now approved the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine over the single shot jaws into Johnson morph from WSB health reporter Sabrina Cupid The CDC has confirmed 54 cases of people developing blood clots and showing low blood platelet levels after getting the Johnson & Johnson shot The condition mostly affecting younger women all of the patients were hospitalized 36 treated in intensive care 9 people died The panel voted unanimously in favor of the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer or Moderna as the preferred option for adults saying that they provide a greater protection and fewer risk than Johnson & Johnson's vaccine And again Sabrina Cupid reporting there but we want to clarify the news that just came in not even a minute ago It is not just a recommendation by the CDC panel but now Rochelle Walensky the CDC director has approved this The nation's top public health official recommends tonight that if you're seeking the safest and most effective vaccines and boosters you go with Pfizer and Moderna and not Johnson & Johnson because of this risk we've been hearing about a rare risk of blood clots But there's more nuance than that as we heard minutes ago from UCSF infectious disease expert doctor Monica Gandhi who gave us her reaction Essentially it's a relatively safe vaccine but there are out of about a 100,000 women 30 to 49 There's a one in a 100,000 chance of getting a clot And so what that means is we have seen clots that have actually been 54 cases of clots and very unfortunately have been some deaths from those quats 9 deaths total So because of that why have any safety issues That's why they put it down at least for women Now what I mean by nuance is men may be we don't see this men There's kind of a preferential women side effect with this And so there are going to be people who want this for their young men especially since young men can get other side effects from the mRNA vaccine This comes after an uptick in cases around the country includes including I should say cases of the highly transmissible omicron variant read a lot more tonight at WT dot com This just ended the WTO P newsroom because of rising COVID cases the university of Maryland is canceling all
