If you look at it now, I mean, we're doing better on a daily basis, but we need to do a lot better, not just a little bit better and starting these federal sites is really a test and using the military to distribute the vaccine. Other countries have done that. Such as Israel, and it's worked really well, so I'm encouraged. I like them. Taking aggressive approach is there is no word.

"Workers who were routinely dealing with covert patients and reality. People in the healthcare field, like chiropractors and acupuncturists will be within the first group to be inoculated. Meanwhile, other counties opening up vaccine eligibility to people over 65 years of age like Laurens County, even city of Long Beach because they've got their own health department. Frankly, there might not even be enough vaccinations to cover the broader population base here in L A for a little while. Dr Paul Simon, chief science officer for L. A County's Department of Public Health, Doctor, Thanks for coming on. Let's start with where we started This segment. The health care workers, Obviously hospital workers, doctors, nurses, Yes, no arguments there. A lot of people and they've asked us this question too. They say you dentists? Yeah, sure. But a chiropractor or acupuncturists? Why're those on the list before someone who maybe is 65 70 years old. Well, we get defined health care worker broadly, in part because the finer the definitions on them or exclusions, the more complicated it gets. Uh but In addition, some of those alternative Healthcare providers do have significant exposures to patients. And so we felt it was important just to include them in the group. We want to in no way diminish, though the risks Of those and that 65 older age group, and we are working as quickly as possible to expand. Vaccination efforts to include that group. We're hopeful that we'll be able to do so in the next Several weeks, unfortunately, are limited, though, by the supply of vaccine on we're doing our best to allocate out as efficiently as possible. What wouldn't you have more vaccines? If and I get that It's more complicated. But if you're a little bit war surgically precise. In the types I mean, going back to this the public. Mike is right. You know, the public was told at the federal level the state level the county level that the first people when a vaccine is available that are gonna be vaccinated. The people in the trenches and you I remember the pictures on television, the doctors and the nurses who were just working 24 hours, seven days a week, taking care of really ill patients, and we were told those of the people. It had the priority and everybody said absolutely right. Nobody then thought that some of this expanded list that sure you know, anybody in the health field field can be exposed to somebody with covert, but so could summiting going shopping at the local supermarket. So if there was more precision, wouldn't you be able to get to the 65 75 85 year old who are dying in far greater numbers than acupuncturists? Well, you raise a good point. Many different groups have variable risks, and even these broad categories are necessarily uniform and risk. Some providers even working in primary care clinics have much greater risk, then other providers and so we we didn't feel that we could at the sight of vaccination, trying to distinguish So finally, And in the end, we decided to find the group more broadly. But we again do agree with you that those 65 older are as significant risk. We are Working hard to roll out the vaccine to that group quickly.
