What You Need To Know About COVID-19 Vaccines and Blood Clots

"Dr william moss thank you for coming on the newsworthy. Thank you for having me. It's my pleasure. So i just give us a brief overview about what's going on with these blood clots that have been seen so far connected to the johnson and johnson. Vaccine the united states Through the centers for disease control and prevention sets up a vaccine safety surveillance and this is happening with all axons all covid vaccines but all other vaccines that are in use in the united states. And what happened. Is that through that surveillance system. They heard reports of a six women between the ages of eighteen and forty eight who had developed a severe blood clots in the brain of six days to about fourteen days after receiving the vaccine. And this is exactly what this surveillance system is meant to detect. Now people need to know that just because something is occurring after vaccination an adverse event like this. It doesn't necessarily mean it's being caused by the vaccine and so what's happening right now. Is that the advisory committee on immunization practices met to discuss these six cases we subsequently learned about two additional people one woman and one man who had a similar types of blood clots and the trick is to try to understand what's happening it requires careful investigation of these individual cases to try to see if they're really linked to the vaccine or not

"All right, Charlie. Thank you so much really appreciate it so timid. I just worked out, you know, and went over some of the big headlines about leftover vaccines and getting them out to people. Global virus cases now topping 104.5 million deaths. Surpassing 2.2 million. We've had more than 108 million covert shots given around the globe, So let's get into our virus Guests great to have joining us once again. Dr. William Moss, he's executive director of the International Vaccine Access Center, professor in the Department of Epidemiology, International Health and Molecular microbiology and immunology at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. Which as you know, supported by Michael R. Bloomberg founder Bloomberg LP and Bloomberg Philanthropies. Doctor Moss back with us on the phone from Baltimore. Bill. Nice to have you here once again on Bloomberg. So I got to say I'm starting to feel optimistic. As I know people in my world that are getting the vaccine. It looks like the flow is opening up. Tell me how you're seeing it. What are you seeing in terms of covert cases and then the vaccine getting out to people. Yes, Thanks, Caroline. That's my pleasure to be back with you. So we are seeing some positive signs. It doesn't mean we can let our guard down. Um, particularly with a Super bowl coming and we don't want another super spreading event. We are seeing case numbers come down in the United States yesterday 119,000 cases That's down from about 250,000 cases in early January, so we're really down on cases. We are still seeing tragically high numbers of deaths. The death numbers are always kind of lag. The case numbers by a couple weeks. We're still at about 3 3800 deaths yesterday so that That's obviously still tragically high. Our test positivity around 8% still much higher than we'd like it. But we are seeing the case. Come bring the case Numbers come down. And as you pointed out, we're getting more vaccines out over 55 million doses distributed. We've gotten over 34 million doses into arms. That's about 60% of those distributed We're doing much better and getting vaccines doses into people. And I think this combination of you know the case numbers come down. If that we continue that trend. And then continue to do better and better and getting people vaccinated. We may be seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, but again, that's not going to be for a couple more months. People still need to practice their good public health measures. It's amazing to hear you rattle off these statistics because it's all relative, right. I mean, we're in a worse place than we've been then we were in a few months ago, but a much better place than we were in a few weeks ago. So I guess context is everything. I do wonder about the new strain, bill because these this decline in numbers that we're seeing is also coming at a time where in recent weeks we've heard about the discovery of new and potentially more transmittable strains You're exactly right, Tim. And you know the The surge that we saw, probably you know, in throughout January was probably related to the holidays and holiday gatherings. And so we're seeing that fall off. But you're exactly right. These thieves new variants of the virus that arm or transmissible and particularly of concerned, there's some suggestion that perhaps they may cause more severe disease and and may be able to escape some of the protective immunity conferred by our vaccines. Not completely And and we think these vaccines are still going to be really good about preventing severe disease, hospitalizations and death, But but we need to be on guard. On Gui need to be ready for increasing circulation in our communities of these more transmissible virus Variants s O. That is something we're gonna have to watch very carefully, and that's what we're worried about that these various being more contagious writing and circulating, as you said. More easily and more quickly that even though we're vaccinating if we don't have enough of our population vaccinated that can create a whole other wave. Yes, you're right, And it's it's why it's so urgent Right now. Before these these variants, he's more transmissible variants become the dominant viruses circulating in our communities that we do everything we can to do crease the transmission of this virus and that includes as quickly as possible getting more people vaccinated. And really doubling down on our public health measures to prevent transmission. The more this virus transmits, the more it's gonna mutate on create further problems for us, So we think we have a short window of time right now to really try to clamp this down. What's the best way to increase vaccine distribution? Because of the current rate, we're going right now, which is about 1.34 million vaccines each day, it will take months to reach 75% immunity in this country. Right there number steps that can be taken and I think the bite administration is working on this. I think of it in in kind of the four D's doses, delivery demand and data. And so we certainly need to increase the number of doses There are there are limitations on how many vaccines can be manufactured, but their efforts to increase the number of doses Purchase more doses for the U. S population and also bring on hopefully in the next few weeks, you know, maybe new vaccines such as the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, we were waiting for the results of their face. Three child. We need to improve our delivery. That's increasing the number of vaccinators increasing the number of sites were vaccines are being delivered. We're already seeing a lot of progress on that front. And then on the demand side, we need to make sure that we target our public health messaging to those communities that have mistrust or scared or skeptical of the vaccine on and build that trust. Doses, delivery demand and data. Did I get it right? That's pretty impressive. We're going to continue with Dr William Austin. Just a moment over Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health will continue our conversation. Got a few more questions. I want to ask him. Yeah, you wanna focus on I wanna talk about short window. I want to know how short between getting vaccines out and dealing with those variants. This is a Bloomberg.

"The ad 7 10 here, the latest coronavirus numbers in our area, Virginia today reporting over 4300 cases. That's a slight increase from yesterday. Commonwealth has now seen more than a half million cases since the pandemic began. Virginia also reporting 70 desk today. Maryland reporting more than 2000 cases up from yesterday's 1880, the state also reporting 31 desk, the sea reporting 248 cases and two deaths. The latest coronavirus numbers can be found that wt o p. Com we learned today that the more contagious South African strain of the Corona virus has now been found in Maryland. A person from Baltimore who has not traveled out of the country was found with the variant. Dr. William Moss, executive director of the International Vaccine Access Center at Johns Hopkins spoke with me a little bit earlier about the dangers of this new variant. This is concerning toe have this virus variant in Maryland. We know on Thursday that this virus variant was identified in two individuals in South Carolina and you know the individual, as you said in Maryland in the Baltimore area had no history of travel outside the country. So what this means is that this virus variant the South African bear. In two or 31351 is the scientific name has been circulating in our communities and Maryland and we just need to continue to do more surveillance to better understand how widespread this variant is. But the concern, as you said, is the we know that this variant is more transmissible. It's more contagious than the earlier viruses that we've seen here. So this is of concern, particularly as Maryland cases have come. Down in the past three weeks when we hit our peak total over 3000 cases per day on January 9th as you said, we're just over 2000 now, but we need to remain vigilant here in Maryland and in the United States, Doctor Is there anything that we can do? That will not doing now. You know, we've all been told to mask So maybe double mask has been suggested out there. Is there anything that we need to do? That's different because of this variant, Or is it still the same basic health protocols that we just really need to follow? It's those same basic public health protocols, the masking the physical distancing, avoiding gathering washing hands that we need to just be very rigorous about doing. We need to double down and do those. I don't think we need to do anything. In addition to those we also need to get our vaccines ramped up. That's the that's the But the other thing other than those public health measures, but nothing specific to this variant. We just need to be more careful because this is concerning we have this more transmissible variant in our communities. Yeah, well, when you can get your a vaccine, please go out and get it now hearing about these variants, especially this one that's more contagious is concerning. But shouldn't we expect that there might even be more variants that we start to hear about as this pandemic continues. Yes, And certainly that is certainly true. All viruses mutate. We're going to see new variants. We need to do a better job here in the United States on looking for these variants. That's increasing our genomic surveillance for these variants. We haven't done as good a job as other countries. But we're going to see new variants emerge and whether I'm particularly concerned about as more people develop immunity from vaccination. Will the virus be able to evolve? From that protection conferred by vaccines will just have to be very diligent in our surveillance systems. That's Dr William Moss, executive director of International Vaccine Access Center at Johns Hopkins University. 7 14 Sports is next. Give your January.

"Infectious disease expert, said the back Donation rates should be fully on track soon. We're not where we want to be there. No doubt about that. But I think we can get there. If we really accelerate, get some momentum going and see what happens. As we get into the first couple of weeks of January to take us through where we are and how we can get better. I spoke with Dr William Moss, executive director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, which is supported by Michael R. Bloomberg, founder and majority owner of our parent company. I think of this. That's the three D's if you will doses. Distribution and demand. And we knew going into this that we were not going to have a sufficient number of doses for everyone into vaccine in this country, and there's been some thought I level thought about how to prioritize. But that was really done at very high levels and the devil's really in the details about who you get these vaccines to but where I see where I think the problem is now is in the distribution. You know, more than 13 Million doses distributed, but only a third of those delivered and I think you know, this is really ah, Lack of planning. A lack of federal resource is Um, and personnel to deliver vaccines. Many countries around the world do mass vaccination campaigns He's heir done for, you know, childhood infections. And they do months of planning and work out what we call micro plans where real details are are worked out about how that they're gonna be distributed and put in the arms of Children, and we just didn't have that level of planning. We're trying to do it on the fly as the vaccines. Become available, And that, too, is one of the challenges. States just don't know how many vaccines they're going to get. Then hospitals and nursing care facilities don't know how many vaccines they're going to get. So they're trying to do this on the fly. The third D is demand and you know that's something that certainly we need to have, You know, be sure that we can have the community's trust and And, uh, acceptability these vaccines and that anything we do doesn't disrupt that demands. Do we have the people to do the inoculations when they're busy trying to keep people alive and ICUs? No, you're and you're exactly right. That's a really good point. You know, both the states and the health care facilities are overwhelmed, taking care of patients doing the testing that needs to be done, and they just don't have the bandwidth to be administering vaccines. You know, as in the United Kingdom in India right now, Donor, um, you know, training tens of thousands of people to deliver vaccines. That's what we should have been doing here in the United States. Months ago, just preparing the healthcare personnel to be able to administer vaccines. How long would it take to get that situation corrected. We do have a new president coming in January 20th, he said. This is his number one priority. No doubt about it. He's put together a team. But as a practical matter, what is the lead time on training up the people to give the inoculations? Yeah. You know, I think it could be done pretty quickly, but it has to be done in accordance manner. We have to enlist the help of, you know, nurse schools of nursing medical schools. You know, people who have some health training and have some experience and I think we could I think within a couple weeks we could train Ah, large. Forced to be able to minister vaccines. But again, it has to be done in a coordinated way, with guidance, starting at the federal level, down to the state level of working with all of our health care institutions, A ZAY said. No schools of nursing schools of medicine Took it. Which numbers of vaccine e trained doctor. Is this likely to get worse before it gets better in this specific sense? Right now we're talking about really administering this vaccine to health care workers and people in nursing homes. Those people actually getting I have access to health care right now. What about we go into the general population, particularly some of the underserved parts, the population that don't regular see a doctor anyway. You know, I think this is a really critical point. We will learn some of the sticks better. We'll have more vaccinators trained, but it's going to hurt her as we move into, you know other high risk groups just identifying who those people are setting the priorities for those individuals. You know which combination of co morbidity they're gonna book people hire and lying. And really getting out to the communities. What is done in other countries and mass vaccination campaigns is they do outreach. They set up the vaccination centers in the communities so they can reach them, and I think we're going to need to do the same. But we just haven't had the planning both of the federal and state level to be able to do that yet. One of the planning how much was money? We're going to need to appropriate a lot more money to get this done properly. Well, it will require resource is it's going to require resource is financial resource is to set up these out. Leech vaccination facilities that's going to require financial resource is to have the Now to administer the vaccine to transport all the equipment and vaccines to these outreach centers. There's no doubt about it. The recent stimulus package has some funds to do this, but what the states have received thus far has been insufficient. And finally Dr how much of this can be done as a private public partnership? President Trump was very proud of the fact that they got the warp speed project up and going, they did deliver vaccines in really record time. A lot of scientists were surprised They got the nexus that fast. Is there some peril thing that we've done in the public health Administration here with public and private, because I'm not sure if the federal government itself has the resources Yes. No, I think there is an important role for the private sector here with in terms of administering vaccines, and we've already seen you know the efforts by some of the pharmacies like CBS and Wal Mart. Walgreens T be able to administer vaccines. They do that already for Many of our adult vaccines. But I also think private employers will play a role in in vaccinating their workforce. Much as we're seeing hospitals and healthcare facilities do that. I think we'll see an expansion of that going forward, so there is a critical role for private public partnership. In this mass vaccination effort. Dr Fauci said that he is looking for a time we're gonna be up to one million vaccinations today. Is that realistic? Is that in the near future that we could accomplish that? You know, I think that is, that is, uh, can be accomplished. But it's going to take a little out of effort, and it's gonna re sources and personalities we talked about with other countries have shown that they can do that. They can vaccinate that number in a day but requires a high level of planning and coordination on the resource is to be able to do it.

"Quick take powered by more than 2700, journalists and analysts in more than 120 countries. I'm Susanna Palmer, This is Bloomberg. This is balance of power. We have the strongest economy by far in the world. We need an economy that works for everybody. I am the one who has to grow this coalition where the world of politics meets the world of business. They've got the money. They need to run very competitive race. These always brought the case, man. In my view, they should be sanctioned. We want Certainty in the markets. We want certainty in our trading relationships administration is trying to create a new, divided world gallons of home we've given Western on Bloomberg radio. Coming up this hour, a pro trump mob invades the capital and White House staffers exit In response. I talked to one of the most prominent Mick Mulvaney. Plus, Congresswoman Stephanie Murphy of Florida takes us through what happened inside the Capitol when the mob broke in and the United Kingdom formally left the European Union after reaching a last minute deal on the terms for Brexit. I talked with Council on Foreign Relations senior fellow Matisse Mattei's about what's next, and Dr William Moss from the Johns Hopkins International Vaccine Access Center is here to tell us how we can increase the vaccination rate. In the United States. But first when the mob invaded Capitol Hill this week, the House and the Senate were meeting in their respective chambers to hear debate over an objection to the counting of electoral votes from Arizona. One of those in the House chamber was Democratic representative from Florida, Stephanie Murphy. From my perspective, it was a very difficult day in the history of the United States Capitol, but At the end of it. I think we all saw that our democracy prevailed that once the chaos was settled, we went right back to work and that the rioters weren't able to achieve their goal of using violence to influence a political outcome, and this was a The hard day for me in particular, because I'm a refugee. My family escaped the tyranny that was imposed by the Vietnamese government and this country rescued us. And it has always been a beacon of democracy from my family and so many others, and I love my country so much and I never take for granted our system of government. That's really why I'm so heartbreaking about what happened. There are various people now are pointing fingers. It's inevitable when something like this happens and a lot of attention has been focused on President Trump, who did go out and speak just before this all happened and said it was all a stolen election at the same time. Is there a larger issue here about our democracy and the extent to which we all feel like we're in the same country? These are people that certainly President Trump has led, but I'm not sure that they didn't have some real concerns about the country before he came along. Well, you're putting your finger on. What really problematic is that there are people who are very angry. They see a government that isn't working for them. That isn't serving them, and they are Being said in their consuming information that isn't based in fact, and there are colleagues of mine as well as the president who fan the flames that resulted in this kind of violence. We have to figure out how as a nation we can come together in. Turn the page on this chapter of hyper partisanship and People living with different realities of what is going on in this country. We have to figure out a way where we can work from a common set of facts and then Move forward with our different political ideology on how we address this, that the facts But right now, with foreign interference and the influence of social media, and you know the way our news is produced, we're creating bubbles of information and they don't intersect and so You're seeing people who are acting on that information that they're receiving, and it's not always true. One of the specific proposals has come forward has been invoking the 25th amendment. The Constitution does that help us put this behind us and move forward and perhaps is one country or didn't make it more complicated. Let me first just say that. I think it's unacceptable that we have a president who has repeatedly Condoned and even encourage this kind of violent behavior in order to achieve this political Um And and I, um, I think you know if the vice president were willing to support the 25th, and then then I support him in that, But really right now, I think our goal should be to ensure a peaceful transition of power. So, um You know, That means that we focus on January 20th, and we make sure that what occurred hasn't happened again. So we have the transition of power and something about crisis surrounding of which I must say. I'm surprised that that hasn't been the case in the past for the most part of United States of America. We also have pandemic going on. I know it's affecting your home district, North Orlando as well, one thing that I think everyone could participate in his ever be unified approach. Getting behind getting ahead of this pandemic. Yeah. You know, I used to work at the Department of defense and when I was there we way were dealing with the avian flu and it was a very deadly disease and What we discovered in dealing with that disease is that we have to have a whole of government approach to responding to the pandemic, and unfortunately, we don't have leadership on your on the executive branch that is providing the infrastructure of all hold government approach. And in fact, what we have is that we have leadership in this country that has decided to politicize the bare minimum safety things that people could do to keep themselves safe, such as wearing a mask. Somehow that has become a political statement. And so that's putting more people at risk. So I think You know, and my community is a victim of all of this are infection rates are increasing after the holidays are hospital systems are changing their.

You know, people who have some health training and have some experience and I think we could I think within a couple weeks we could train Ah, large. Worse to be able to minister vaccines. But again, it has to be done in a coordinated way, with guidance, starting at the federal level, down to the state level of working with all of our health care institutions. A ZAY said. No schools of nursing schools of medicine to get which numbers of vaccine E trains. Doctor Is this likely to get worse before it gets better in this specific sense? Right now we're talking about really administering this vaccine to health care workers and people in Nursing homes. Those people actually getting I have access to health care right now what we go into the general population, particularly some of the underserved parts. The population that don't regular see a doctor anyway. E think this is a really critical point. We will learn some of the sticks better. We'll have more back to the majors trained, but it's going murder as we move into, you know other high risk groups just identifying who those people are setting the priorities for those individuals, you know which combination of co morbidity they're gonna book people hire and lying. And really getting out to the communities. What is done in other countries and mass vaccination campaigns is they do outreach. They set up the vaccination centers in the communities so they can reach them, and I think we're going to need to do the same. But we just haven't had the planning both at the federal and state level to be able to do that yet. One of the planning how much was money? We're going to need to appropriate a lot more money to get this done properly. Well, it will require resource is it's going to require resource is financial resource is to set up these out leech vaccination facilities that's going to require financial resource is to have the canal to administer the vaccine to transport all the equipment and vaccines. To these outreach centers. There's no doubt about it. The recent stimulus package had some funds to do this, but what the states have received thus far has been insufficient. And finally, doctor how much of this can be done as a private public partnership. President Trump was very proud of the fact that they got the warp speed project up in going. They did deliver vaccines and really record time. A lot of scientists were surprised they got the nexus that fast. Is there some peril thing that we've done in the public health Administration here with public and private, because I'm not sure if the federal government itself has the resources Yeah. No, I think there is an important role for the private sector here with in terms of administering vaccines, and we've already seen you know the efforts by some of the pharmacies like CBS and Wal Mart Walgreens to be able to administer vaccines. They do that already for Many of our adult vaccines. But I also think private employers will pop role in in vaccinating their workforce. Much as we're seeing hospitals and healthcare facilities do that. I think we'll see an expansion of that going forward, so there is a critical role for private public partnership. In this mass vaccination effort. Dr Fauci said that he is looking for a time we're gonna be up to one million vaccinations today. Is that realistic? Is that in the near future that we could accomplish that? You know, I think that is, that is, uh, can be accomplished. But it's going to take a little out of effort, and it's gonna re sources and personalities we talked about with other countries have shown that they can do that. They can vaccinate that number in a day but requires a high level of planning and coordination and the resource is to be able to do it.

"Surgeon health experts dare say a new strain of the illness could be partially to blame. What could that mean for the U. S. Should we be concerned about a potential new strain here? A pose that question A Dr William Moss, executive director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health from me the evidence that this is really a new strain that's more transmissible is not rock solid yet. I'll say we still need to learn more. All the viruses like SARS Corona virus to mutate. That's just what viruses do. These are what we call RNA viruses there. Their genetic code is our in A and that's notoriously prone to mutations. So the first thing I would say it's not surprising that the that the virus is mutating all viruses like this mutate, but whether it's really mutated so that it's more transmissible across people. That's a really hard question to answer, and I think it's going to take more evidence. What's really hard. There is just teasing out how much Of the increase in cases is due to the virus itself or to human behaviors. Or perhaps both with Thea vaccines. Could they still cover new strains? Yes, so that I think this is a really important question, and this is something we'll learn more about going forward. But these vaccines the fighter in the mature enough vaccines, which we know the most about induce a fairly broad and the body response to the virus, so it would take substantial kind of mutations for this virus to really mute. Kate, away from the protection conferred by the vaccines, and I will say there are also significant constraints on the viruses ability to mutate. Particularly its ability to mutate that spike Protein that protein on the surface of the cell, which are protective antibodies are targeting. That's the key protein on the virus service that allows it to bind. Who are own cells and get into our own cells. If that protein mutates substantially, actually, you end up with a dead end virus. It just cannot bind to the receptor on our own cells and get into our own cells, so there are constraints on how much parts of the virus can really mutate. And fortunately those constraints on parts of the virus despite protein to which the vaccines were directed, so I don't anticipate that we're going to see Ah, virus that's going to substantially mutate against the protection conferred by these vaccines. It's something we'll have to look for, but I think it's unlikely.

"How will it get to everyone who needs it? Joining us now is Dr William Moss, who is executive director of the International Vaccine Access Center at the Bloomberg School of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. Dr Moss Welcome, Thank you. Well, let's say that it's an American company like Madonna that develops the vaccine first, and it's approved by the FDA. What happens next to first manufacture enough of it and then distributed Yes. So there are two broad issues here. One is how we can scale up manufacturing and the logistics of distributing a vaccine. And the second large issue that will need to wrestle with has had a prioritize who will first get a vaccine. So in terms of the distribution side The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention is really the leading institution in the United States and of the government that will oversee the distribution of a covert 19 vaccine. They have contract ID to Moccasin Corporation, a company that has a lot of experience and distributing vaccines they distribute about 150 million doses per year. And McKesson will work with the CDC to distribute a vaccine for all the different places that need it within the United States. This is goingto include public health department's large healthcare organizations, hospitals, doctor's offices and pharmacies. What's going to be really critical? Is that wee conduce quickly and maintain what is called the cold chain. The cold chain is something that's a key part of vaccine distribution. Almost all vaccines need to be kept cold in some of our newer vaccines like you mentioned the modern. A vaccine, which is a messenger are in a vaccine are goingto have particularly stringent cold chain requirements. They may even require storage of the vaccine much lower temperatures than we do for standard vaccines. Well, and the other thing is you You're talking about distributing it through the United States If the United States if a company in the United States develops vaccine, I imagine that you know, France, Germany, countries all across the world are going to be wanting it too. Yes, And that's a really important question. How will a vaccine manufactured in the United States? Will it be available to people around the world in countries in Europe, for example? But there's also concern about getting a vaccine to some of the lower and middle income countries. Let's say throughout Subsaharan, Africa and Asia, and right now, it's not entirely clear how that process is going to work. My own sense is that vaccine manufactured in the United States will probably be prioritized for people within the United States. Unfortunately, the Current administration has eyes cutting ties with the World Health Organization and strictly a program called Kovacs, which is led by the World Health Organization, Gabby, the Vaccine Alliance and SEPI, the coalition for Epidemic Preparedness and Innovation. That are coordinating efforts to ensure equitable distribution of the vaccine around the world. So it's not yet clear how a vaccine manufacturer the United States would be prioritized within the United States and then outside the United States. One. On the flip side. What if the vaccine gets developed in China or Israel than with the United States be second or even later down list in terms of access to that vaccine? I think so. That's that's a very important question. But and and their efforts to try to avoid vaccine nationalism where countries that develop a vaccine are using it on ly in their own country, and it's going to be a very tricky political decision. To determine how vaccines will be allocated within the country and then shared more globally again. I think countries will probably prioritize at least some of the high priority groups within their own country. This maybe healthcare workers essential workers those vulnerable populations like the elderly or people with co morbid conditions that make them at particular high risk for both disease and death. I think those people will probably be prioritized within the country. But we definitely need an ongoing conversation and plan about how to ensure That as vaccines, manufacturing is scaled up, they'll actually get to the people who need them. You talked about McKesson and having experienced getting vaccines to tens of millions of people. But have we ever seen anything like this? Where Ah, a similar situation where you have a disease that is all over the world and just about everybody. Is gonna want access to this vaccine. Right. This really in many ways is an unprecedented situation. The most similar situation, I will say at least in recent history was the 2009 H one n one influenza pandemic, where There was concern about widespread transmission of influenza virus and the potential for AA. Lot of mortality. That would be the most recent example where there was this kind of global need for a vaccine, but that didn't pan out. Fortunately, we didn't see the The deaths that we're seeing now with covert 19 and the widespread transmission of SARS corona virus, too, So I think we're really in a new territory here. The other thing that makes the H one n one influenza pandemic different is that we had a lot of experience with influenza vaccines. People knew about them. We knew what they were. Here. We're trying to develop new vaccines to a new virus on some of the the vaccine platforms or the way these vaccines are being manufactured. Is quite different than ways that we have done. So in the past, we talked about the Madonna vaccine, a messenger are in a vaccine. That's a really new type of vaccine. Some of the other leading vaccine candidates are adenovirus vector vaccines. Where the gene of the spike protein of SARS Corona virus is inserted into an adenovirus that's then administered. That, too, is a relatively new vaccine. It's been approved just this year in July. For Ebola, but we have this problem of or challenge, I'll say of new vaccine types multiple different vaccines being manufactured in several countries. And the challenge of getting this to Ah, global population. I hope you're right, Jeremy that most people who will want this vaccine, but that, too, is a big concern and recent polls in United States Suggest that only perhaps half of people would be willing to get a vaccine. Would somebody who gets a vaccine they'll be in danger because of the person who doesn't get a vaccine? Well, hopefully not. Hopefully that a person who gets the vaccine will develop protective immunity that will last for a long time, but both of those air still uncertain..

"July for a Bola but we have this problem or challenge I'll say of new vaccine types, multiple different vaccines being manufactured in several countries, and the the challenge of getting this to a global population I. Hope you're right Jeremy that most people will want this vaccine but that too is a big concern in recent polls in the United, states suggest that only perhaps half of people. would be willing to get a vaccine would somebody who gets vaccine though be endanger because of the person who doesn't get a vaccine? Well hopefully, not hopefully that a person who gets the vaccine will develop a protective immunity that will last for a long time, but both of those are still uncertain. There's been talk about what would be acceptable vaccine effectiveness. And we've set the bar relatively low people are talking about vaccine that maybe protects only half the people who get the vaccine or seventy five percent of people who get the vaccine. We also do not know yet how long this protection will last after vaccination. So with an ideal vaccine that offers protection to almost everyone gets the vaccine and that has durable immunity. Then such people were vaccinated would not need to worry but if only half of those people are protected and that protection is short lived. Yes. Then they would need to worry about those who do not get the vaccine because those are the people who could transmit the virus to both vaccinated an on vaccinated individuals. Let me ask you one more thing because businesses large and small schools. Of course, are are trying to figure out what to do when can people come back to the office and and obviously at this point in time there's a risk in allowing workers or asking workers to come back in, and then you know what? If one of them gets corona virus WHO's on the hook for that? So let's pretend best case scenario. There's a vaccine that comes out by the end of this year. How long do you think it will take until that is widely available enough where companies can say to their workers. Okay. Come on back. Right, this time line for win a vaccine will be available and when it will be available to the general public is an important time line but there's still a fair amount of uncertainty about that. There's no doubt that early on there will not be sufficient quantity of vaccine doses to vaccinate everyone who wants to get vaccinated, and there's a lot of thinking right now by a number of expert. Groups trying to think about who should be prioritized but my own guess would be that it won't be until mid or late twenty, twenty one that will have a vaccine available to the general public so that employers for example, could require that their employees get a vaccine. I think we're going to need to prioritize and that's probably going to be as we said, earlier, healthcare workers essential workers. Those who are most vulnerable, and then slowly as vaccine manufacturing capacity increases make the vaccine available to a wider public.
