"Officials have been telling us that people who have both doses of these vaccines look like they're very well protected even against the variance. The problem might be when there's a lot of Virus circulating in a population people are more likely to be exposed. But the A federal official, speaking at the White House today continue to say that Americans who are living in highly vaccinated areas and who themselves are fully vaccinated should be safe. Maggie is there a sense that this third booster shot could help better protect from other more transmissible and more virulent variance. There is no evidence of that yet. But one thing fighter said, was that they were going to change the formulation a little bit right now. The vaccines target just a little piece of what's called the spike Protein. That's the part of the virus said it uses to infect cells. Pfizer says they're developing a vaccine that targets the entire spike protein, and that would be an obvious attempt to get broader protection against more different changes in the virus. What people have been seeing when they test these vaccines is that the the immunity induced by vaccination is very broad and very long lasting. So even if the virus has mutated a little bit, there's enough cushion of protection. That it's still protects people from the worst effects of infection. Maggie as always, Thank you for your help. Appreciate it. Thanks, Maggie. Always a pleasure, CNN senior health editor Maggie Fox 6 53..
CDC Says Fully Vaccinated People Can Go Maskless in Most Places
"Increasingly tired of wearing that face mask. Possible. The extraordinary success we've had in vaccinated so many Americans so quickly today. We've given out 250 million shots in 114 days, The move comes is more than 100 million Americans have gotten at least one dose of the vaccine. Remember, those state and local governments have the final word on these rules, and nothing has changed across the D. M V Tonight. In terms of mask rules, CNN senior Health editor Maggie Fox spoke the W T O P. Shawn and Hillary a little earlier about how this came about. He has been under a lot of pressure from a lot of places to go. That people can do more once they're vaccinated as a way of encouraging people to get vaccinated. The CDC has been digging in its heels. But today, Dr Wolinsky, the director of the CDC, said that enough has happened to wear her agency feels comfortable in sort of changing the guidance and lightening it up, she says. That the number of cases have been dropping. There's been more vaccine, There's more people getting vaccinated. And she says the science has shown that the vaccines are very effective that they protect people against variants and, most importantly, that people who are vaccinated are not very likely to catch the virus and spread it to people who are unvaccinated. What the CDC saying is, If you're vaccinated, your safe and the people around, you are safe. So there's no more reason for you to have to wear a mask. A final thought for us as we approach the weekend and all of a sudden we find out. Maybe we can do some more stuff. Well, probably thought but again, it's up to your local jurisdiction to decide so the CDC does not set law president Biden said. We will not be enforcing this local jurisdictions. Specially probably here in the D C area are probably going to keep some of their restrictions on people and stores. Restaurants bars places like that are very likely to keep their restrictions because there's one big issue you can't tell who has been vaccinated, then senior health editor Maggie Thoughts

"In that case, CNN senior health editor Maggie Fox Joined us earlier with additional details on the J and J meeting. It looks like they planted all day meeting from 11 to 5, which indicates Dimitri that they've got a lot to talk about These vaccine advisories. This is the CDC is advisory Committee on immunization practices They met earlier in the month and decided that they needed to get more information before they made any recommendations about the vaccine, and it would be expected that they would collect and hear about any extra cases. On top of the original six cases of Women that raised the concerns in the first place. We know the Oregon case is going to be raised at the meeting tomorrow, Oregon health officials said. That's one of the reasons they released information about that one death because it will be discussed tomorrow. They're certainly going to hear about how this spot syndrome develops. They're calling it thrombosis with thrombosis Idol Pina syndrome, which means ah blood clot while at the same time your body is missing some of the factors that are involved in blood plotting. It's very rare, very unusual. They're going to discuss how best to trade it. It's not always best to give the most obvious drug heparin, a blood thinner to these patients. It is a treatable condition, and then they'll have to decide what recommendations to go forward with whether to say, You know what only certain people should get this vaccine. Or perhaps I'll just say maybe an extra warning label will be enough. To the patients, and doctors can be aware of the potential for this syndrome. Because it is the one dose vaccine it has been viewed is so important in getting the American population vaccinated more rapidly. How would all of this impact the overall vaccination effort if J and J were sidelined? So far change a hasn't been a big contributor to the vaccine supply that you main suppliers have been Madonna incisor. But as you pointed out those air to dose vaccines, and they're given 3 to 4 weeks apart, which does make it a little Bit harder. Jay and Jay's one does. It would be great for grabbing the college kids before they go home for the summer for getting people who really have trouble scheduling vaccine appointments for people who don't particularly like getting vaccinated and would prefer a one dose vaccine. It's also a little less delicate, so it's easier to get this one out to places where These freezers and refrigeration might not be so available, so there were hopes that this vaccine could add a lot to the effort. But in the meantime, there seems to be enough vaccine supply to get these big mass vaccination sites taken care of. We always want to be careful not to dispense medical advice on the air. That's what doctors are for. But generally speaking, there have been a great number of people that have gotten J and J. If you're several weeks out from your vaccination, and there's no headache, no unusual symptoms and you're going on. With your life. Can you largely assume you're okay? Even after getting the Johnson and Johnson vaccine we heard from plenty of doctors about this, and they all say the same thing that more than two weeks out. You really don't have to worry about it. Anyone should be alarmed if they have a sudden onset very severe headache, and they're not normally prone to migraines. If you have a sudden, sharp, severe pain in your abdomen, If you get a pain in your leg and your legs hot, any of those things could indicate one of these blood clots called us from Bo. And you need to get in and get them treated So far, most of the cases the first symptom hasn't been that they dropped dead of a stroke. They have these symptoms, and if people can get to the hospital in time and get the right treatment, these blood clots can be treated with blood thinners, just the right sorts of blood dinners and certain other treatments that doctors need to know about. But out of seven million vaccinations given there have only been 678, maybe nine cases reported, so this is literally a one in a million occurrence. CNN senior Health editor Maggie Fox will have full coverage tomorrow of the federal meeting on Johnson and Johnson's covert vaccine and whether it's coming back stay with what's.

FDA advisers recommend J&J vaccine for emergency authorization
"Amid this new warning from President Biden. There's been another significant step forward for the nation's covert effort. An FDA advisory committee endorsing Johnson and Johnson's covert shot and, according to multiple reports of CDC expects the FDA to grant emergency use authorization tomorrow. CNN Health editor Maggie Fox joining our own Sean Anderson and Hilary Howard earlier to talk about This endorsement was made said that it was a pretty easy decision for them. They said that the data clearly showed that this vaccine is not only effective in preventing severe Corona virus infections, but that it's also a very safe vaccine. So this committee, these advisers to the FDA voted unanimously to recommend that the FDA gives emergency use authorization to the vaccine. Well, the acting commissioner of the FDA, Dr Janet Woodcock, has issued a statement saying that she plans to do that very quickly. Assuming this all happens as it's supposed to what's the timetable here for getting doses made and then distributing them without this is going to be fast doses are already made.

That is the race? That's what everybody's worried about These variants. Some of them appear to be more contagious and really the best way to get out in front of that is to get as many people vaccinated as fast as possible. Johnson. Vaccines boost that a little bit, but they don't have a whole lot of vaccines ready to go until the end of

"T. OBY, Sean and Brennan earlier with more on these new findings, it's way better than anybody had hoped for. That's for sure. I've been speaking to vaccine researchers who are all kind of doing happy dances and saying things like We never expected anything this good. It's still all very initial data. We've only got a few 100 cases in each of the trials, but both Visor and the other companies called Moderna are showing just unexpectedly good results in their early data. They're gonna have to go through it in and analyze it a bit more and wait for some more cases. But meanwhile visors moving ahead and asking the Food and Drug Administration to give him what's called emergency use authorization so people can start rolling this vaccine out and giving it to people. What they found is unexpectedly. It works, Justus well in older people. As it does in younger people. That's a bit unusual for a vaccine and it seems to work safely. There weren't any big safety concerns in in the cases that they've seen, of course, the more people that get vaccinated. The more information on that they will get But so far, it's pretty remarkable results. This visor vaccine. The information that has surfaced is that it has to be kept at extremely cold temperatures. The competing vaccine from Moderna can be refrigerated, at least for a short time. Is this a massive disadvantage for the fight of FISA version of this? You can't be in some ways, but you know there, there are likely to be more than just the two vaccines. And at first, there's going to be a shortage of vaccine supply. So it's just a well that different vaccines have different properties. It's it's starting to shake out that maybe the visor vaccine will be useful to be deployed in big hospitals, Big hospital systems, big cities. Where it could be given to healthcare workers who are at the first of the line anyway. To be given any vaccine. These would be places that are set up to vaccinate lots of health care workers all at once, and that would work fine. And then the Madonna vaccine if it does get authorized. Would perhaps be better to roll out more rural areas where it's a little harder to keep vaccines that cold.

This is where we talk about a recent or somewhat recent brand campaign that caught her attention and we were chatting about spotify earlier because spotify. I mean I'm very impressive. And rapidly changing company overall. And even you know it seems like new acquisitions. Every day but There's something they did from an advertising campaign standpoint. That caught your attention. You might talk about that for a little bit yes? You're so I know you often have. People talk about new campaigns. This campaign is not new more. Was IT in North America? It was from two thousand six and a husband and I were in London time. And we're in the tube and we saw these billboards from spotify and I love the service and they said things like your person who listened to the forever alone playlist for four hours on Valentine's Day. Are you okay? And they used a ton of you so funny and he used a ton of user data to come up with a Super Hillary as tag lines and clockwork. Because it's like a borderline creepy and you're looking at the independent independent discount op. Ed piece like it's not right to take people's misfortune and unhappiness eternity to add campaign but I liked it. I really liked it a lot. I don't think I've ever looked at a billboard in like last my head off your whole bunch of them in a whole series and so I thought that was super super super clever and super funny. So yes that's a big one for me. I still remember is that he said two hundred sixty two thousand sixteen was two thousand six. Oh I'm sorry. Did I say two dozen six West to hasn't sixteen? Okay Yeah I think it's such a strong campaign I agree. I think it's yes. There's always you know concerns about privacy. And what data companies have on you as a consumer but spotify like. I feel like that's what they're all about. And that's what I like about them. The most the fact that they know what you're listening to and make custom playlists for you every single day in know what to recommend to you. They make it such a more pleasant listening to experience whether that's music or now podcasts. As well and so that's what they thrive on so they kind of hinted at that through this campaign saying hey you know we know you. We know what you're listening to and and it was obviously a little bit darker comedy or a little bit tongue in cheek there but it was clever. What was your favorite part about it. I think it was just absolutely hilarious. Rightly were lists. Another playlist was or another ad. Rather was dear dear person who played blending. Mother fucking Asshole Twenty Times.

"Maggie fox explains why we're hearing this morning now from the CDC he knows a lot about respiratory viruses and they know that if they're spreading the way this one is spreading in other countries it will inevitably spread here too the question is just when and how bad it will be now as we see the numbers steadily increase overseas what more should we be doing here at home to prepare well people should always be ready for any kind of emergency in the CDC has long standing recommendations for what people should do one of the main ones is to think about what would you do with the supply chain for your medications with him as you know a lot of our drugs are made in China or the ingredients are made in China if we have a long term pandemic that disrupts the supply chain for medications people need to be ready to have more on hand or to have alternative plans for taking the medicines they need it's possible a certain communities are hit hard that schools were closed maybe even work places what would you do if your child's school was closed you still have to go to work you have child care plans in place the CDC recommends that you talk to your doctor about possible telework or telescoping your kids telemedicine in case you don't want to go into a doctor's office or a hospital that's already overwhelmed with patients thank you I think there's some confusion and I'm hoping you can help us clear it up for the the high death rate in China it doesn't seem to have translated to cases elsewhere is there a higher death rate from corona virus compared to the regular flu that we see for example or is it just that officials in China took a long time to get a handle on how to treat it it's really hard to say what we don't have is what's called the denominator in order to know what the death rate is you have to know how many people are infected and how many of those people die now when it's a new disease like this the only cases you see are the really severe ones the people who are sick enough to go at the hospital so it it gives you a bit of a mis read on how deadly it is because you're only seeing the worst cases what we really need to know is how many people have mild cases this is a corona virus and like other coronaviruses it's very likely to to make many if not most people only mildly sick maybe not even sick enough to see a doctor Intel there's.
