"It's today explained I'm Noel king, Lauren Gardner, you cover the FDA for Politico. Last Thursday, Moderna asked the FDA to authorize its COVID vaccine for kids under 6. A company's announcement comes as the FDA says making a vaccine available for kids younger than 5 is one of its highest priorities. Why is it taking so long to get a vaccine for this age group? This is the $1 million question. We were hearing towards the end of 2021 that the vaccine manufacturers were expecting data by end of that year early this year. Pfizer will ask the FDA for emergency use for its COVID vaccine for children as young as 6 months old. And that once they have the data in, they would be able to move pretty quickly to ask the Food and Drug Administration to authorize their vaccines for emergency use for that population of children. And what's happened since then, well, omicron. The latest wave of COVID infections, making it feel yes, like December of 2020. The spike in new infections fueled by the omicron variant is showing no signs of slowing down. New Jersey, Florida, Delaware, and Massachusetts also recently reported new daily records. The companies were conducting their trials while this new variant started circulating in the United States. And as we've all seen with adults and older children, it was much easier. All of a sudden, to get infected, then that changes how the data is collected and what it's showing. It's been about a week since Moderna went to the FDA. When do we expect the FDA to give Moderna an answer? So Moderna has said that they're going to need about a week or so to finish submitting all of their data to the FDA. Also, keep in mind Moderna still hasn't had authorization given for their vaccine for anyone under 18 in the U.S.. So there's a lot of data that they still have to submit, but what FDA has done is they're trying their best to give guidance to parents who want to know when these vaccines will be available without over promising. And part of the reason why they have to be careful in doing this is they can not disclose confidential business information. Companies can say publicly, when they submit an application to FDA, where they are in their process, it's something they talk about on shareholder calls all the time. But FDA can't say that for them. So FDA is really reliant on the manufacturers to publicize where they are in their process. I believe in a couple of months. We should be in a position to have the data and then service. Before the end of the year. That has jaded parents especially who have been so eager to get these vaccines because they feel like they were promised a timeline that really could not have been promised. So it's really frustrating that there's protection now for just about everybody else. But those of us who have young kids are stuck, they haven't specifically said when the Moderna vaccine for kids under 6 will be considered. But they've held three dates in particular for pediatric vaccines. Keep in mind, too, we're expecting data from Pfizer in the next couple of weeks. So that will also factor into what comes up when, but Pfizer decided we need to look at what a third shot does for kids. If they wait a little longer, if they administer the third dose in that clinical trial, they'll have a very firm picture of what level of effectiveness the vaccine is delivering. So once that happened, there had been discussion about, you know, maybe we move forward on authorizing two doses of the vaccine, but knowing we might have to add a third in there. And moving forward with that kind of approach. Could have generated even more confusion than already exists. These are the exact same vaccines that we're giving to adults, right? When we talk about little kids, they would be getting the same vaccine that went into my arm. So the dosage of these pediatric vaccines differ from what you and I might have gotten in our arms last year. In Moderna's case, the dosage of their pediatric vaccine is about a quarter of what's given to adults. And it's similar for Pfizer, their pediatric vaccine dose is also a fraction of what adults received. That dosage still produces a similar immune response so that you can tell that these little kids bodies are trying to fight off the virus in a similar way that if they were exposed to the coronavirus, they would see a similar immune response happen. They'd been. When the FDA evaluates a pediatric vaccine. What exactly are they evaluating? What makes this process so much longer? While companies have been in contact with FDA before they formally launch these applications for these authorizations, that doesn't mean FDA has all of the data available to them, right? They're talking to the manufacturers having conversations before the application actually crosses their desk. So while they may have an idea of what they're about to see, they don't have the full picture. And once FDA gets that application, that's when the real work begins. Because what happens is FDA basically re checks all of the math that these vaccine makers do. They're like your math teacher in high school that didn't just take your word for it that, oh, this is the answer I came to. No, they want to make sure that you did the right process to get that answer, right? And that's what I don't think a lot of people in the general public understand is they are redoing all of these statistical analyses. They're making sure that the findings that the vaccine maker says they found when they crunched the data that FDA can reproduce that. And then it's also a matter of making sure that they have the manufacturing capacity to do this. What does your facility need to put in place to make sure that they can make these vaccine doses, especially since we're talking about smaller different doses compared to what adults get. They come in different boxes. They come in different vials. So there's all kinds of things here that FDA has to check. Childhood immunizations are not at the level that they were pre-pandemic. And there is a lot at stake here if FDA doesn't get this right for.

two ten in acke John dome in WTO P new 1221 on your Wednesday morning If you have kids between 6 months and 5 years they could soon start getting vaccinated for COVID by the end of this month in fact Pfizer has officially this week asked the FDA Food and Drug Administration to allow low dose COVID shots for children under 5 a big step it seemed toward vaccinating America's youngest The federal regulators will review the data on two doses of the vaccine for this age group This morning Lauren gardiner who covers the FDA politics and policy for Politico joins the conversation with her take The second on this announcement is huge for parents out there who have been wanting to vaccinate their young children against COVID-19 and haven't been able to So Pfizer announced that FDA essentially asked them to begin submitting the data necessary for regulators to consider and then potentially authorize a low dose version of their vaccine for kids So the main thing here is that Pfizer is asking FDA to sign off on two doses of the vaccine for kids but they're expecting to need to ask for a third dose to be given to kids to produce the best antibody response possible to the virus So that data is expected a little later this spring which is why originally it didn't seem like this was going to be available until a little bit later this year So special doses absolutely tailored to the youngest children Do you think they would start some off on two doses and others on three or are they just gonna come up with the right dose that they think was correct for everybody and only then will they be able to proceed Is giving out the initial two dose regimen to kids So one kid sized dose and then a few weeks later another dose And then what they're studying is giving a third dose to these younger children under 5 8 weeks after their second dose So the theory is by the time they have the data needed to support FDA signing off on that third dose the kids who just started getting their shots theoretically later this month if it's authorized then they'd be up for their third doses by the time that that goes through the regulatory process So basically they're trying to get a jump start so that kids at least get some protection from the vaccine and then later on they'll be able to get the third dose of Pfizer thinks is going to be necessary for optimal protection So by way of what this means for the overall pandemic is this going to close a huge gap in the system so to speak so we get some more people vaccinated and hopefully get our infection rates even lower than they are Well it definitely has the potential to kids have made up large number of cases as oma crown has surged And that probably is due to a number of factors But if you think back to how we were living a year your plus ago kids were really cocooned at home a lot of them weren't able to go to school in person had a lot of parents working from home They've been out and about in the world a lot more especially in person in school And because there's been so much virus circulating it's been much easier for kids to come down with COVID-19 So when there is a vaccine available for these children under 5 years old it definitely could help us turn a corner in some way for the pandemic But again that's going to depend on how many parents make sure that their kids under 5 and kids who are currently eligible between 5 and 17 get vaccinated I know we're not medical doctors here but that's a lot of shots for kids If it's three doses we don't know if it is For kids that age they fear needles of course has that been discussed at all Something that pediatricians have to broach with parents but keep in mind there are lots of vaccinations that children typically get that require multiple doses And a lot of the pediatric vaccines require three doses So it's definitely not unheard of and for children out there listening It's little pinch but that's the way it is You can deal with yeah that's the way it is As Lauren Gardner who covers FDA politics and policy for Politico talking with our Dmitry sodas You are listening to 103.5 FM in WTP dot com Where the time now is 1225

asking the U.S. to authorize extra low doses of its COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 and younger potentially opening the way for the very youngest Americans to start getting their shots in early March The nation's 19 million children younger than 5 are the only group not yet eligible for vaccination against coronavirus If the FDA agrees Pfizer shots containing just a tenth of the dose given to adults could be dispensed to children as young as 6 months old An open question though is how many shots those youngsters will need Pfizer assessing three shots after two of the extra low doses turned out to be strong enough for babies but not for preschoolers and the final data from the study isn't expected until late March That means the FDA may consider whether to authorize two shots for now

"For the Pfizer or Moderna brands instead of the one shot J&J the recommendation this week from a CDC advisory panel that has now been approved by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention director because of rare but apparent deadly blood clots connected to the J&J one jab version This morning Politico FDA politics and policy reporter Lauren Gardner On what led to the change So the panel got in some new data over recent weeks showing that while cases of this are still very rare the overall rate of these cases is higher than previously known So while women ages 30 to 49 tend to be more susceptible to this based on the data we've seen people of all ages both sexes have come down with this blood clotting condition And 9 of those cases have been fatal So while that's a very small number compared to the number of J&J doses that have been administered in the U.S. which is about 17 million 9 of those cases were fatal and that represents 15% of the blood clotting cases that have been identified in people who were vaccinated with the J&J shot Now they are saying if you're allergic to the mRNA vaccine then maybe J&J is worth the risk of what can you tell us about that That was kind of key in the discussion was the advisers debating whether and how to phrase their recommendation And a lot of members pointed out that if you outright recommend against this shot and then it's not available you do have some folks who are allergic to components of the mRNA vaccines or going beyond that maybe in your community that's the only shot that's available to you or maybe you still don't trust the mRNA technology but you're willing to consider getting the J&J shot And what their message was in a scenario where you don't have a COVID shot at all or you have a choice of the J&J shot the benefits and risks are still favorable to the J&J shot But if you have the choice as pretty much every American does between Moderna and Pfizer or J&J the mRNA vaccines are second to none Wasn't the J&J also more attractive to some people Because it was one dose versus the Pfizer and Moderna Yes that was definitely a big selling point And that continues to be a big selling point for the company But there's also a lot of debate there about should the primary series of this vaccine actually be two doses much like there's discussion about for Moderna and Pfizer are we really talking about we need three doses of the vaccine over a certain period of time that we just haven't quite figured out yet because we're still in the thick of a pandemic So that has been a big selling point but either way at this point now that we're into boosters federal health officials are still recommending that people get multiple doses It just depends on if you got Pfizer or Moderna they want you to get three overall if you got J&J to start with and they want you to get a second one of either J&J or actually preferably Pfizer or Moderna Politico FDA politics and policy reporter Lauren Gardner

"I chat fan. Sports meteorite or and columnist for the boston globe and we go through a number of sports media topics including the olympics. How many people think watcher will not watch the. Espn's hiring of peyton manning and eli manning to do a mega cast Which was certainly an interesting move by them. Talk a little bit about the nhl schedule and how we think Espn and turner did and a couple of other news notes when it comes to sports media so if your sports media nerd. I think you'll enjoy that. He is followed by melanie. Newman who is a play by. Play voice for the baltimore orioles on the massive network m. a. s. n. And you may have heard. She was the play by play person for the all-female female announcing crew that called the raise. Orioles game on july twentieth. Along with the analyst's air lang's report around alanna rizzo and pregame and postgame hosts. Lauren gardner and heidi watney and melanie discusses how she came up in the business in how she started calling play by play where she thinks the the businesses in terms of hiring women to be play by play voices in baseball. One sort of glass ceilings that remain the nba You hear women's voice in the nba. You don't blink In baseball the that representations still needs to be added and melanie newman is at the forefront of that and then just sort of the experience That she had calling a national game. We also get into a little bit of the os into the jays. Because i live in toronto. She obviously Works for the orioles so we are in cities where we are looking up at the red sox rays and yankees so chat thin start. Melanie newman to follow coming up on the sports media. Podcast all right. As i said at the top chad finn the sports meteorite or for the boston globe and gentle columnist. I would call them as well joins me. He's been on this podcast. Many times chad. Good to catch up with you. How are you good. Komet too All right thank you. So let's we got a lot to cover quickly. Let's start with the olympics. Then we'll do. The manning mega cast chad. And talk about that. So i've written a lot about the The olympics In the last couple of days just did a long preview for the athletic. And my total. Maybe maybe even emitting. My hypocrisy is hypocritical in itself. But like what. I sort of led. The peace with chad was that like i hate the i. I lo them but i love the olympics and i realized that these are existing purely for commercial financial reasons and no other reason at all the reality is. There is a state of emergency in japan. You should not be holding a global competition in this. I'm not saying all sports should be cancelled. Because i don't believe that to be the case at all but but this is different. Take global competition with people all over the world coming in to a country with covert issue so the reality is this is just a made for tv event. That said i think given what both of us do you want to provide for viewers. Like what's nbc's plans. What's their philosophy. How can you watch it so let me just start with you. Sort of very overall like what. What is your general sort of general view of the the olympics happening. Let's say well the view that i've had from readers stretches apathy I i don't know if that comes That that can think back to for years ago. Two years ago or four years ago last summer games and i guess it's five now right in the mood was going into that in terms of just anticipating the competition and the two and a half weeks so Simone biles Women's basketball and getting reacquainted with great athletes. Learning about new ones. And you know sometime builds up and sometimes there are new stars emerged and maybe something. You weren't that interested in the beginning interested in at the beginning of the olympic. Ends up being something. You really enjoyed and I i suppose that could be the case this time. But i i'm not feeling it just from my personal perspective and from what i've heard from readers where Last week friday i wrote about Tucked the molly saw the conference call with alvis and The producer the olympics talking about out their plans for for audio and Essentially making sure it wasn't going to sound like the nba bubble. And when i wrote that story posted at the reaction i got to who cares as pandemic twenty percent vaccinated over there. They shouldn't be doing this and It was probably. I would say seventy five eighty percents in that range. And i think that's going to be reflected a couple of weeks from now and this is wrapping up. It's going to be reflected in the ratings. It's going to be reflected in the viewership and it's probably going to be reflected in the you know the website clicks and the the the the places that sent a lot of reporters of there might have some regret about that. That's interesting you say that because I got asked by douglas. Pucci who works for a number of places to do right so he asked yes. Both of us make a prediction for the overall viewership of the olympics. And when it comes to like these kind of questions. Like i generally have a feel like i'm not saying i'm always right but i have a real feel as to how i think it's gonna play. And what like my viewership guests would be. Yeah chat on this one. I had no idea. Like i think i guess twenty million but honestly it was. It was a guest based on nothing. Because i could see this going super low like you said apathy or whatever or i could see people like for whatever reason like getting excited about like some new americans emerging and it's the summer so there's not a ton to watch on tv even though a lot You know even though the levels that up the homes and use for television is super low. So i don't have a good feel for it other than and this is where i totally agree with you in my olympic viewership lifetime as well as my covering the olympics and i covered seven for sports illustrated. I have never seen less enthusiasm for a buildup of the olympics in this one at least anecdotally in that sense. I'm with you like. I don't know how the athletic clicks are going to be. Although i guess we're judged on subs not clicks. anyway and police subscribe. I don't know what it's going to be for the new york times and the associated press and some of these other places that send a ton of people. But i don't know do you lake. Do you think it's my general instinct is you're right but do you think it's possible if let's say like the american start rolling in the pool and one of these like katie types emerge as the next kind of phelps and then simone biles rolls off like you know four individual gold medals like they could get some momentum or do you think people are just like i mean i guess i'll watch a little bit of it but man..

We recognize the moment but above all. It's baseball we are certainly happy to be giving this broadcast to the audience. I think you said it. Best by the end of the day you get the first pitch and it's a baseball game and this is something that we've all absolutely loved getting to pursue our careers in recognizing that that hasn't always been the case for others it. I did watch a lot of it. And as much as i don't know everything about baseball seemed very competent. Which seems condescending. To say you know one thing. I did notice and i think you heard her voice the voices. I know my voice. In as as long as i've been dad would approve but continue. He would probably beers a talk. I know that my maybe just getting older to but my voice my the actual timbre at my voice has come down because when i first started doing radio it was sort of high in minnie mouse. And it's not people don't like hearing that tone for a long time and one of the women has really gotten it down. One of the women had a bit of a higher pitched voice.
