CDC Reports Life Expectancy in the US has Dropped A Full Year
"A new report from the CDC finds that life expectancy dropped a full year in the first six months of 2020 because of covert 19 from 78.8 years to 77.8 years. CBS NEWS Medical contributor. Dr David Vegas joins us to explain. It's pretty amazing, You know, we say it's a staggering change. You know, a year because most years it changes by a month or two, mostly getting longer. So by losing this year, six months remember, this is the first six months of last year we lost a year in life expectancy that brings us back to 2006 until we lost 15 years of medical progress here on day. It's remarkable. The reason it is, is that the average person in the United States who dies of covert 19 Has lost about 12 years of expected life. And so that's an amazing figure again, 12 years of expected life, so the notion that it made me people out there saying, Well, these were people were gonna die anyway from something very quickly 12 years of extra life of being with their Children, their grandchildren doing with their love and contributing on the serve. We're no longer here. How do you calculate such a thing and arrive it that number That's that's terrifying. It was a Harvard study that was published for the end of last year, where they looked at the people who died and looked at their demographics and what was their expected life expectancy based on the chart. Good is we have a lot of people in the United States so we can do these statistics that are rather accurate. Many regards on DSA. So you know, the more I think the biggest disturbance from that year figure Is that when you look at, you know, blacks and you look at people of Hispanic descent, those numbers are even greater. You know, 23 times what we're seeing, you know, in the rest of the country. It's a really pushing it the divide here in terms of outcome with covert 19, and we have to address these issues. This isn't the sort of thing where someone can waive some sort of magic wand or give someone appeal and we get those years back, right? Sadly, no. I mean, hopefully, the vaccine will put a son back on a trajectory for lengthening life expectancy, which is, you know, really attribute to what's happened in science. No, it's going up a year from a 2006 to 2020 because of remarkable advances and diabetes and cancer and heart to do that really have made it impact. But we've lost a lot of that here now with his virus, with the 470,000 deaths in our country, and unfortunately an ongoing pandemic, we have to figure out what it changes on

It would also provide money for covert 19 vaccines and testing aid to state and local governments, help for schools in the airline industry and subsidies for health insurance. A growing number of states are easing coronavirus restrictions and rolling back mask mandates. But CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Vegas warns. When you look at the data, the data are clear. We have to continue wearing masks for several more months. We have to social distance. If we don't do those things, we're going to have to continue spread of the virus and with these new variants I am worried that it's going to be a very quick rising number of cases. CDC researchers say that mask mandates imposed in states last year were associated with the nearly 2% decrease in the rate of newly reported covert deaths in the 100. Days after the rules were implemented for states that allowed restaurants to reopen for in person dining, the rate of new covert deaths increased by up to 3% in the months following the lifting of those restrictions.

Johnson and Johnson says single-shot COVID-19 vaccine 85 percent effective
"And Johnson says it's one shot covered. 19 vaccine is 85% effective against severe symptoms. They could be approved for emergency use. As soon as next week. Our Marla Diamond spoke with CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Vegas about the announcement. Is there a big difference between the effectiveness of the Fizer and Madonna vaccines at 95%? And this one at 85%. Why this one? If you look at the same numbers, it's about 72% just to block all symptoms. That's 85% in terms of blocking severe symptoms. This one, though, shows activity in the South African variant of the virus. Because this trial was done in South Africa recently, when that vary it was damaged. That's a very positive biting. Should somebody make a difference? Well, this is 10% better or 15%. Better 20% better. I don't think so. All of the vaccines prevent serious illness. They prevent hospitalization, and they prevent death, hospitalization and death, preventing 100%. J and J. For AstraZeneca for Madonna and for Fizer. So those air pretty impressive. Obviously, you know you want to be protected as much as possible. The ornate vaccines have shown that with tremendous efficacy in the mid nineties, but certainly this vaccine is a contender with one shot, and it's so easy to administer. It's gonna be rolling out parts of the country that we can administer RNA vaccines. You mentioned that the vaccine Was tested in South Africa and was effective against that strain. I'm wondering if this vaccine shows That it will be effective against these more contagious strains of the Corona virus. Today, we had laboratory data showing that the antibodies while they did buy into the South African variant and the U. K. Avery, they were less potent, especially to the South African various. And so what we worried about his Werther, enough of them to prevent hospitalization and death. And this is the first definitive study to show that the answer is yes.
Johnson & Johnson’s Vaccine Offers Strong Protection but Fuels Concern About Variants

CBS NEWS Medical contributor. Dr David Vegas joins US Doctor. How is this vaccine different than the ones currently out there? Waiting more standard technology vaccines is too good, and it's a one shot.

Covid-19 vaccine supply is running low. Here’s how Biden hopes to fix that
"Vaccine has really hit home, leaving many people around here scrambling to sign up for scarce vaccination appointments and others seeing their appointments canceled. But President Biden tonight announced what he calls aggressive steps that his administration is taking to fight the virus, including ordering more vaccine. This is a war time undertaking. It's not hyperbole. And as such, I directed the team to be ready to exercise all the authorities I have under the Defense Production Act and expedite these vaccine. The administration plans to buy another 100 million doses each from Fizer and Madonna with the goal of having enough vaccine for almost the entire U. S population by the end of the summer. Joining us live to talk about it tonight, CBS NEWS Medical contributor Dr David Vegas. There's been so much ugliness and figure pointing over the past four years, Doctor, I don't mean toe Add to it. But who is responsible for this? Because it seems like this point, we should be in a better position regarding vaccines than we are. Yeah, we're in a great position of the vaccines work, and they're safe. That is a remarkable accomplishment. But the rollouts where the federal government said every state can make their own decisions on how to do it, and the method didn't work well. And so the states were so concerned with testing and other things that they really didn't develop plans that, obviously or efficient where the majority of vaccines there were significant numbers sitting in freezers. Rather than in people's arms. So hopefully that is starting to change and more vaccines. You're getting into arms. You said, sitting in freezers. Does that mean they're around? But just not where they need to be. Oh, yeah. I mean, there's a significant number of vaccines that have not yet been administered. Many are being saved for the second shot, but certainly we need to get vaccines out quick. And you know now that we have a more reliable supply chain, we can give all of the vaccines understanding that more vaccines. They're coming down the road to give that second shot. The more people we vaccinate now. More. We can stop the virus and stop they. You know the ramifications, which is the devastation the virus is causing. So you are sounds like you're very much an advocate of whatever you have in your freezer. Now in your fridge. Whatever the facility is get it out to people now. Don't worry about the second shot because there's more on the way. Yeah, I mean, listen, What President Biden just said, is that World War and we're in a war on our soil, so we need to get those taxiing down. If the second vaccine is a week or two or three late. That doesn't really matter. It won't hurt the efficacy it all. There's some data that may actually be beneficial. But we need to vaccinate as many people as possible with that first shot, and then that second set so they could be protected. We're seeing record numbers of hospitalizations and deaths across the country in many places, and obviously we need to intervene. And then we're starting to see variants which are mutations of the virus happened. The more the virus is spreading, the more it can change and we don't want that. What do you think of a plan, and it may be too late to go back now. But what do you think of a plan where we started out and just said, if you're between 80 and 100 years old Plus you get it first and then 60 to Haiti and then the younger people rather than all of these breakdowns, with first responders and supermarket workers and the complexity of it all. Yeah, I think we have to be very simple here on. Certainly many states have overthought this and you know the details were just too complex. You look at countries like Israel that had a remarkably efficient roll out and it was by decade. We know the greatest risk factor for complication from this virus is a judge. And so certainly doing it by decade makes a lot of sense medically and also, you know, delivery wise would be much easier, and at the same time we need a standard way of doing it across the country. The notion of one state doing it differently is encouraging vaccine tourism people traveling to other places, and then we need a standard registration system so people can pre register. When they get there. They can get the vaccine that could be followed. And they can go home rather than having to fill out paperwork and register. In many cases. What do you think about the plan to get 300 Million people vaccinated by fall? Does it seem reasonable and doable? I think it's doable. I really think it's doable. We have two vaccines. Now that work. We have a second one, a third one that we should hear about shortly, which is Johnson and Johnson. And then we have AstraZeneca, which is the vaccine that we have intensive million's already produced that has been approved elsewhere in the world that will be approved here. So what those four vaccines I really think it's doable. And you know, we are lucky we're seeing, you know, shocked by how well these vaccines work and health safe. They are and you know, every time it kind of brings an emotion to me that science came through. Sure appreciate that. And we could hear that in your voice. Dr Rigas. Thank you very much. Thank you. CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Vegas as we learn about a plan by the president and the new administration tonight to buy a couple 100 more vaccines and to try to have 300 million people vaccinated for covert by the fall, stay with
Dr Fauci warns South African 'super-covid' is the variant to worry about because it may make vaccines less effective
"Well, the newer strain of the Corona virus first found in the UK and now identified in at least 20 states, including Pennsylvania, New Jersey Dr Anthony Fauci says that strain and the new variant discovered in South Africa arm or transmissible, but they may not be deadlier.

It's a good start 100 back in the briefing room over two months after his last appearance, Dr Anthony Fauci, who returned as president Biden's chief medical advisor, One of the things that we're gonna do is to be completely transparent, open and honest. CBS is we did Jang at the White House. CBS News Medical contributor. Dr David Vegas joins us to explain why there's a shortage well, they're two aspects to the vaccine shortage. One is not enough vaccine. The second is not all of the vaccines that were distributed. I've been putting people's arms. They're staying in the freezers. Both of those reflected inefficiencies that have to be fixed. There's going to be increased supply of both advisor in the Madonna and then Johnson and Johnson and AstraZeneca. Coming down the road have a large number of acceded storage. Ready to put out as soon as they receive emergency use authorization. I wonder if you can just briefly explain to the patients that don't understand the difference between the visor and the Madonna vaccines. There's not much of a difference Both of those air we call RNA vaccines, which means they're the instructions to make the part of the virus called despite protein that we need to make an immune response to get protection. So both of those air injected in the arm. Your body makes that protein. It makes an immune response and gives you protection. The five year vaccine is given on day one, and then the second shot three weeks later, the majority vaccine they want and then four weeks later, their second shot, and about a week after that second vaccine, you have immunity. It doesn't mean you can't spread the virus, which is critical. Because you can't but it'll be a much much lower level. That's why vaccines or so beneficial. Everyone asked me which vaccine to get. My answer is which ever you can get first. There is no data. That one is better than another. Really briefly. There's still a lot of reports about people being afraid of these vaccines, and even some black medical workers in Chicago have said that they don't want to take it either suggestions for them. Yeah, I mean, the suggestion is really discourse and us talking about it more. The data show in tens of millions of people now that there was no zero serious side effect that was lasting from any of the vaccines in clinical trials, and the first four vaccines, 100% blocked hospitalization and death from the virus. Those air dramatic numbers. Where's the virus Almost uniformly can cause problems, even in asymptomatic people. So I think we just need to get the information and the discourse out there. I understand there's a lot of misinformation and that seems became political. How you felt on a vaccine was a sign of your political thinking for a while.

"19 vaccine as soon as Monday, But it is difficult to transport feedback. As President elect Joe Biden continues picking his Cabinet. There are some who would like to see the president elect, go bold. Revelations, the Johns Hopkins benefactor owned enslaved blacks. The initial evidence was a surprise to me. I'm Allison Keyes and the CBS News Washington Bureau. Health officials are warning people not to travel over the Hanukkah Christmas and New Year's holiday season as daily deaths in the U. S air now averaging more than 2200 Day. That's about equal to the peak scene in mid April, and some health officials are blaming Thanksgiving travel. This is the FDA gives final approval defies There's covert 19 vaccine, the first in the nation. Some could begin getting the shots as soon as Monday. Health care workers and nursing home residents are first in line. Our coverage begins with CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Vegas. This is an RNA vaccine. This is the first every deployment outside in a clinical trial of a Noron a vaccine. Arnie Vaccine air the instructions for your human body to make the viral spike protein so it doesn't make the virus But it makes the spike protein and then your body makes an immune response against that spike protein. So if you are exposed to the real virus that immune response will block the real virus from getting in cells. This in the future yields a much quicker way to make vaccines. Obviously, we see it here. And really will be the future of all vaccines over the next several years, But this is the first to be deployed across the country. The problem with this vaccine it has to be stored at minus 94 F. Have there been any issues with the with the working of the vaccine? There has been little testing and Children more is ongoing and we'll have more really over the next several months. We have not tested in infants or in pregnant women who are in nursing women. And so they're also they're all subgroups that we don't have data on. And you initially they won't be part of the deployment. The pregnant women Is kind of Ah, you know, worrisome thing that the majority of healthcare frontline workers are women, and many of them are childbearing age and they might be pregnant or my property without even knowing they're pregnant. And obviously this is of concern and something that needs to be discussed on guess. Oh, he encouraged that the majority of the country can get this the one thing that has been noted over the last week. Was that to health care workers in the United Kingdom developed a allergic reaction to the vaccine. Every vaccine in history, there are allergic reactions to it Normally about one in a million And so what we say normally when we roll out vaccines is people who have a significant allergic reaction that issue carrying epi 10. So you know it. So if you do have it, you can inject yourself. Those people should hold off and hold off until we know what component of the vaccine. The allergic reactions were, too. We could better understand that that they said there is a second drug being developed. And this is a drug. That is a one shot in the our deal that'll last for about a year that will prevent people from getting covert 19. There's an antibody, and it is meant for people who cannot make an immune response to the vaccine. So those air cancer patients are people getting immune Spence suppressive therapy for autoimmune diseases, potentially pregnant women and potentially people who had significant allergic reactions. So that drug I hope it will be approved in the next several months. Okay? But just so I'm clear until listeners air clear for the Fizer vaccine. People with severe allergies who carry an EPI pen and even people like me who carry Benadryl should perhaps not take this and pregnant women should not take it either, because that's still being researched. Exactly And so you know, we're saying, you know, hold off to being the first, so we have some more data that think said. These reactions are reversible. As you know, with your Benadryl or at the pen and the people in the United Kingdom, You know, they got their shot, and they were absolutely fine. So this is not a significant concern. This is an expected issue with any new drug you see this on, but just something to be aware of CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Vegas. CBS News Transportation correspondent Chris Van Cleeve tells us the distribution processes complicated. This is a huge logistical challenge. You in theory are trying to get vaccine. To every single American. And that is ah, tremendous logistical challenge and multiply that around the world to every single person on the planet. Not easy to do. Obviously, we're starting small, relatively speaking. What they have done is basically generally speaking. Split the country in half ups takes the east FedEx takes the west DHL will handle some international distribution. But basically you're going to see these logistics companies, the same folks that are shipping all the things you're ordering off Amazon right now and all of those Christmas gifts they're making room for the vaccine. They're gonna pick it up from visor. It will come in these cold boxes that keep the vaccine of the temperature. It needs to be kept at which that super cold temperature It allows them to pack the vaccine in batches of about 1000 in dry ice, so it can keep that super cold temperature until it gets to a distribution spot. Once it's inside that cold box, though it moves like any other kind of cargo, so they'll load it onto a ups or FedEx truck. We understand U. S marshals will be offering security and escorts for these shipments. And then they're gonna take it to a distribution hub. We know that FedEx and ups have super cold storage facilities. Ups has a freezer farm in Louisville, where they can store it for a prolonged period of time if they need to, But basically it's gonna work like this. It's going to roll off the production line. Five years gonna pack it. Put it in this cold box. It's gonna get loaded onto a truck. Trucks going to drive it to an airport. The airport will take it to a ups or FedEx hub, and from there, it's going to go out to the states get loaded onto another truck and get delivered to the hospitals..

Dr David Vegas, spoke with our Michael Wallace. We'll both of those are are in a vaccine so that it's not a classic vaccine. This is the instructions to make the spike protein a covert 19, so it's injected in the arm. Each person makes this protein and then their body makes an immune response against it. And then it's so similar to the virus that it blocks the virus from getting in the cells. So very exciting. A whole new way of making vaccines. Um, the visor vaccine decided not to go with operation works be. They did their trial in unknown and they're going to strip it it themselves in the self contained charge boxes. Will last for a week or so that keep the virus of minus 94 F and these boxes around 1000 vaccines will go to a center. People will be vaccinated.

It'll go through Operation works speed the government's distribution program, and the two of those will be the first obviously out there and the AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine, I would think announces data in the next week or so. So we will have three candidates with real production to start vaccinating, hopefully in December. What do you say, Dr Vegas to the many Americans, according to surveys, who are skeptical and unwilling to get vaccines once they become available. They're afraid that maybe there might still be some side effects. So they have been studied enough. What do you say to them? Historically fill every vaccine. I'm aware of all of the side effects early scene in the first 3 to 4 weeks, which is you make too big an immune response and you get sick or the immune response you make actually hits other tissues in the body. We haven't seen any of that with either any of these three vaccines. Is that mixing really encouraged on the safety side. It's been very hard in the national discourse because vaccines got politicized, so it almost became your political view what you would do with the vaccine, and that's wrong. I think as we go forward, we're going to realize that 79% of the U. S population will not respond to a vaccine. We all have to be vaccinated to get hurt immunity, protect those people, the people with immune issues, cancer treatments or other conditions that make it so they can't respond, and we're all going to have to step up so we can protect each other.
