On a Wednesday. It's all things considered from NPR news. I'm Mary Louise Kelly in Washington and I'm Elsa Chang in Los Angeles today, regulators in the UK have given emergency authorization to a covert 19 vaccine made by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford and regulators in India seemed ready to do the same in this country. Though the Food and Drug Administration appears to be waiting for the results of a large study with 30,000 volunteers before it makes any decision about that vaccine. Joining me now to talk about when that might happen. And what other vaccines air coming along is NPR's Joe Palka. Hey, Joe. Hey, Elsa. Hey. So at the moment, let's just take stock here. The FDA has granted emergency use authorization to a vaccine made by Madonna and another by visor Buy on tick. How likely do you think it'll be before we see an authorization for the AstraZeneca Oxford vaccine? Well, it's going to be awhile, in part because the U. S. Regulators have set out a series of expectations for the kinds of clinical trials they'll be looking for. In order to make a decision. They want something. I think that's a little closer to what Madonna and Fizer by on Tech did, and the study said that AstraZeneca Oxford have done so far. Don't meet that threshold. But the cunt company is doing a large 30,000 persons study in this country. So that should do the trick. If if it proves effective there, Okay. So what do you think is coming next for this country? Well. I spoke with Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and he said that more than likely the next vaccine on the coming through will be from Johanson or Jansen, which is the vaccine division of Johnson and Johnson. And that vaccine has an interesting advantage. It's a single dose vaccine. It's being studied in 45,000 volunteers and The interim results from that should be available the next month or so on, then I shouldn't be too long after that, before an emergency use authorization is at least applied for and may be granted. And then found she says he expects the results from the AstraZeneca trial will be is running well will be after that. And then right after that is the Novavax which started a couple of days ago. And Novavax makes another kind of vaccine. And as found, she just said they started a large study of 30,000 volunteers in this country in Mexico. And they are already running a study in the UK with 15,000 volunteers. Wow. Okay, So what is that five different vaccines. Do we really need five different vaccines to bring this pandemic under control, at least in the U. S. Yeah, well, you have to remember also that once upon a time, it wasn't clear that any of these would work. And so they were all developed in parallel with the idea that hopefully one would work. And now, of course we were. Expectations have been raised significantly since the first to work so well, but I asked Fatty that very question. I think in the big picture of things, Joe, we're going to need all of them to get the entire country vaccinated. In a good big part of the reason for that is theirs on Lee, so much modern on Fizer can do to ramp up production. That's a good point. Well, president like Biden has said he wants to vaccinate 100 million people in the 1st 100 days of his administration. How feasible is that? You think Well, it's possible. But as Biden himself said, it's not gonna happen at the pace. It's going now It's gonna take years, not months to vaccinate the American people. Now part of will involve making more vaccine, but part will be sorting out the logistics to make sure everyone can actually get the vaccine once it becomes available. That is NPR's science correspondent Joe Palka. Thank you, Joe. You're welcome.

"Politics podcast is there to keep you informed. Every time there's a major political story. We get our best correspondence together to sort through the noise. The NPR politics podcast. What you need to know. Right. After it happened. This is on point. I'm begging to Trucco bardy were talking about the Los Angeles teachers strike going on right now. And what it means? Or what tells us about the challenges we have in funding public education in the United States? And by the way, we should note. Ninety eight percent of unionized Los Angeles teachers voted to go on strike, so near unanimous agreement that this was the collective action. They wanted to take right now and on Monday kindergarten teacher and twenty one year. Veteran of the Elliott school district Maria Gonzalez told NPR why she's on the picket line. We have to care. We have to acknowledge that these are children of color. These are children that play receive free. Reduced lunch. The nurse and the psychologists are oftentimes the only healthcare professionals. They're in contact with that's kindergarten teacher Maria Gonzalez at a press conference also on Monday, Los Angeles. Mayor Eric Garcetti urged the two sides the union and the district to reach an agreement. I've been working around the clock. Not just days but weeks on the issues that are at the heart of these negotiations. This is the time to make an agreement. There is not much that separates the two sides. And there has been movement towards what the teachers have demanded and what the district can afford. That's LA mayor Eric Garcetti Martinez. Your elementary vice president for United teachers of Los Angeles the union here. That's that's that's on strike right now. I hear mayor Garcetti saying there's not much that separates the two sides. But in the course of this conversation, it seems like there is quite a bit. I mean, what would it take to? What do you think it would take to advance negotiations right now? Well, I think what we want is to have a partner that really is willing to be honest. You know, we we haven't been able to get the the folks from the district sending across a table to admit to you know, information on their own financial statements. We haven't been able to make movement other than a proposal that would give us a one year relief. Nick mentioned the approximate thirteen hundred additional positions are only for one year so negotiations that last twenty months should fruit a con a contract that is longer than one year it should fruit a fix that is longer than one year. And it really is going to require the district to to admit, you know, that they that. They are they keep saying I keep hearing this rhetoric from three folks, you know, Nick being one of them wanna go Garcia and Austin Butin her. Saying that the money isn't there? But I when I sit at the table, no one no one else is willing to to say that to us or you know, defend their demonstrate their the methodologies of how they came up with their figures. So what we want is a real investment for long-term saving public education in LA. And that's going to take a listening to our demands and coming forth with something that lasts longer than here. We'll Nick Melvoin return back to you vice president of the Los Angeles unified school district board of education here. So Gloria has said repeatedly the course of this conversation that teachers are asking for a commitment to to it investment deeper investment in LA schools now, and I've also heard, you know, we've had we've talked about how the majority of the funding for Los Angeles schools comes from state government in California from from Sacramento, and there's pressure to be applied there. But I'm also what I want to ask you specifically about are there. Other sources of revenue to support Elliot's schools that the district either. Is unwilling to look at or hasn't given serious consideration. And in. Here's why ask because what back in nineteen seventy eight the state of California passed proposition, thirteen right, which essentially capped property taxes here, but you know, cities and towns can pass local exemption sat or it increases in what's called the parcel tax in California. And I'm seeing here that there was a suggestion in two thousand eighteen in L A to put a an increase in the parcel tax on the ballot in June..
