I'm just read most of those. This is my home office in chevy chase. I've been kinda working as the head of the national institutes health from my house for the last twelve months and i am really glad to be getting out of these. Four walls are getting a little bit tight. We all feel the same way in the fact that summer is here. People are ready to their vaccine. There waxed and they're ready to party. You know the thing is a lot of a lot of people who listen to our show have not been vaccinated yet. So let's talk about. How can get that to go away. Yeah let's do that because we are in this amazing place where we have vaccines that had been proven safe and effective and now been administered over one hundred and fifty million people in the united states and they are working great but the way to really drive this virus away and have not come back again and various hot spots to get all of us. Acclimated pneumatic close. Young people may think of themselves as maybe not as vulnerable. Young people can still get pretty sick and other thing. We're learning as even those who don't get very sick sometimes. Don't get better this long hauler problem and that applies the young people. Do on top of that. You can sell spread to other vulnerable rable people so i guess i'm trying to make a case here Those of you who have not yet gotten started as about one hundred million american adults who haven't yet gotten adverse does. This is the time to do it. Go to vaccines dot gov and you can find out how to start today. If anyone was saying well. I don't wanna wait and see. See how it goes. I think we see how it goes with. Over one hundred million people already vaccinated and for a while. It's been this way we've been vaccinated for a long time. We're great. I mean it's like logically were still demanded as we true disagree with ask for you. I have a question. I have two kids of course sixteen and twelve and the vaccine for the kids like the newest thing to pop up and the question that a lot of my friends have had. Is they hear. It could cause infertility when they get older. And that is you know. Obviously you don't want that to happen. So that's something that Is bothering them. So this is an issue. I can be very reassuring. You're there is absolutely doe. Data has suggested any of these vaccines are contributing at all to any risk of infertility. That kinda got out there on social media as if it was a real risk. There's no data to support that in fact because people have been getting immunized is since last summer as part of the trials. If this was a serious issue we would always. I now so relaxed. Everybody this is not going to make you infertile. Let me also say if you're pregnant and you get cold red. You're likely to have a fairly severe time. Mother in that would be something really like to avoid on the other hand if you get vaccinated. You're also giving those antibodies to your baby now. It's your mama's first gift to the baby. This community to kobe because that gets passed through the placenta in breast milk. So there's lots of reasons to think about doing this. Positivity pregnant women should talk to their. Obgyn doctor be sure there's nothing they're concerned about. But this present time no evidence to worry about this likewise for breastfeeding god. Because i have to breastfeed after college. Dr francis collins from national institutes of health. He's the director. I bet a lot of people listening to this okay. Today's day what do i do.

"These exploding numbers. And, of course, the publisher changed. The name of the book, you know, probably would've sold more copies. If we had kept the original. It came out right is the pandemic was starting. But the point was, we drilled into all of these diseases like HIV and we drilled into polio and really told those stories and said, How was it? That we were able to get ahead of these diseases. And that was the idea of the operation worked speed, and we came up with sort of a formula and the formula's pretty simple. It's called a pact. Each letter stands for something so we have to prevent. We have to advocate we have to care, and we have to develop new treatments, and that's gonna be the path forward for us. And so you can think through. That's when we think about prevention. Maybe there are chemicals. Maybe there are pesticides. When we think about advocacy. We've got to get out there and be more aggressive and tell our story and let people know we're really worried about this growth, and we need to do something about it. When we think about C for care. We've got expanding numbers of peoples. We have to develop treatments and take care of them. And then, of course, we need to increase that in H budget by 10 times or more, and that's why we've sent 25,000 cards to the White House Red cards, the White House Advocating for you know not only banning certain chemicals and pesticides that we know multiple studies have shown us are a danger keeping telemedicine, which is not permanent, you know as part of Parkinson care, so we can go into the homes of folks with Parkinson and then also increasing that national institutes health budget by 10 times, So we're going to get to 100,000 red cards. We doing it at ending Parkinson dot order ending pd dot organ. All our proceeds from this book are all going to charity. Now, Dr Okun. How would a vaccine actually work for Parkinson's? I believe I read in my notes here something about that It's similar in a sense to the cove it vaccine because like how it affects the SARS type viruses that that accurate well, there's a couple of different approaches that you can take in manufacturing of Seen in some of the vaccines that have been manufactured for covert or like the ones that are already manufactured for Parkinson. And so it might surprise people listening here that there are several companies already in the space there Several patents out there, And the idea is very simple. So in Parkinson, there are these abnormal proteins that deposit on your brain. So you know how you get plaque on your teeth? Think about getting plaque on your brain. Not a great thought. But when you think about it, that's really what's happening here in Parkinson and these vaccines are programmed to go after the proteins in those plaques called Send nuclear and probably a little too much information. But we program it and we programmed the immune system to go get that Seenu, Cleon and clean off the brains. What we don't know at this point is whether or not we'll clean the brains and people will still have Parkinson Justus bad where there will clean the brains off. They'll have less Parkinson or whether will actually turn into being something that's closer to affecting disease progression. So so it's the jury is still out that the safety testing has been done by a couple of companies in this realm, so Do. I think this is the going to be the complete answer to Parkinson? Probably not. But there are some really exciting things coming. And when you think about Cupid 19 think about all the money that's going into the development of new technologies and techniques that's going to drive research and other areas and I'm super excited that it's gonna bring some new things for Parkinson. I'm excited, but I just wish it would have happened decades ago instead of all these people continuing to suffer their entire lives with such a debilitating disease. Thank you so much, Dr Michael open for being on the program. Thanks, Doc. Thank you. Thank you..
