With the AstraZeneca vaccine here, CBS News Medical Contributor Dr David Egas. This vaccine has yet to be approved here in the United States, but it has been approved.

"Cases begin to decline across the country, but a troubling number in Georgia. Double the SPS Bill carpaccio reports live on efforts to get the pandemic under control. Yeah, yeah, The nearly 180 new coronavirus deaths recorded in Georgia on Saturday is a new single day record. Race is on to get more people vaccinated. We have to get those vaccines into many, many more people before we see the decline. CBS NEWS Medical expert Dr David Vegas worries about new strains of significant concern. Over these new variants, former FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb tells CBS's face the nation. He is encouraged by the vaccines. I do think that the existing vaccines are gonna offer reasonable protection against these new variants. Dr. Walter Orenstein with Emory University's Hospital of Vaccine Center tells Channel two action news People should trust vaccines are safe. Warp speed, which initially sounded like a great name has given people thoughts. Corners have been cut. Despite the variants, he says, the vaccines are more effective than no vaccine it all drug companies are already working on booster shots, which could be available by this fall.
Covid-19 vaccine supply is running low. Here’s how Biden hopes to fix that
"Vaccine has really hit home, leaving many people around here scrambling to sign up for scarce vaccination appointments and others seeing their appointments canceled. But President Biden tonight announced what he calls aggressive steps that his administration is taking to fight the virus, including ordering more vaccine. This is a war time undertaking. It's not hyperbole. And as such, I directed the team to be ready to exercise all the authorities I have under the Defense Production Act and expedite these vaccine. The administration plans to buy another 100 million doses each from Fizer and Madonna with the goal of having enough vaccine for almost the entire U. S population by the end of the summer. Joining us live to talk about it tonight, CBS NEWS Medical contributor Dr David Vegas. There's been so much ugliness and figure pointing over the past four years, Doctor, I don't mean toe Add to it. But who is responsible for this? Because it seems like this point, we should be in a better position regarding vaccines than we are. Yeah, we're in a great position of the vaccines work, and they're safe. That is a remarkable accomplishment. But the rollouts where the federal government said every state can make their own decisions on how to do it, and the method didn't work well. And so the states were so concerned with testing and other things that they really didn't develop plans that, obviously or efficient where the majority of vaccines there were significant numbers sitting in freezers. Rather than in people's arms. So hopefully that is starting to change and more vaccines. You're getting into arms. You said, sitting in freezers. Does that mean they're around? But just not where they need to be. Oh, yeah. I mean, there's a significant number of vaccines that have not yet been administered. Many are being saved for the second shot, but certainly we need to get vaccines out quick. And you know now that we have a more reliable supply chain, we can give all of the vaccines understanding that more vaccines. They're coming down the road to give that second shot. The more people we vaccinate now. More. We can stop the virus and stop they. You know the ramifications, which is the devastation the virus is causing. So you are sounds like you're very much an advocate of whatever you have in your freezer. Now in your fridge. Whatever the facility is get it out to people now. Don't worry about the second shot because there's more on the way. Yeah, I mean, listen, What President Biden just said, is that World War and we're in a war on our soil, so we need to get those taxiing down. If the second vaccine is a week or two or three late. That doesn't really matter. It won't hurt the efficacy it all. There's some data that may actually be beneficial. But we need to vaccinate as many people as possible with that first shot, and then that second set so they could be protected. We're seeing record numbers of hospitalizations and deaths across the country in many places, and obviously we need to intervene. And then we're starting to see variants which are mutations of the virus happened. The more the virus is spreading, the more it can change and we don't want that. What do you think of a plan, and it may be too late to go back now. But what do you think of a plan where we started out and just said, if you're between 80 and 100 years old Plus you get it first and then 60 to Haiti and then the younger people rather than all of these breakdowns, with first responders and supermarket workers and the complexity of it all. Yeah, I think we have to be very simple here on. Certainly many states have overthought this and you know the details were just too complex. You look at countries like Israel that had a remarkably efficient roll out and it was by decade. We know the greatest risk factor for complication from this virus is a judge. And so certainly doing it by decade makes a lot of sense medically and also, you know, delivery wise would be much easier, and at the same time we need a standard way of doing it across the country. The notion of one state doing it differently is encouraging vaccine tourism people traveling to other places, and then we need a standard registration system so people can pre register. When they get there. They can get the vaccine that could be followed. And they can go home rather than having to fill out paperwork and register. In many cases. What do you think about the plan to get 300 Million people vaccinated by fall? Does it seem reasonable and doable? I think it's doable. I really think it's doable. We have two vaccines. Now that work. We have a second one, a third one that we should hear about shortly, which is Johnson and Johnson. And then we have AstraZeneca, which is the vaccine that we have intensive million's already produced that has been approved elsewhere in the world that will be approved here. So what those four vaccines I really think it's doable. And you know, we are lucky we're seeing, you know, shocked by how well these vaccines work and health safe. They are and you know, every time it kind of brings an emotion to me that science came through. Sure appreciate that. And we could hear that in your voice. Dr Rigas. Thank you very much. Thank you.

So far the vaccine looks to be very safe. This is a decade of science. It's record time because science is really improved over the last many years, every vaccine in the last many decades. The side effects are seen in the first couple weeks in this vaccine. We haven't seen anything in terms of serious adverse events outside of the first day or so wt. Opie's Dimitri Soda spoke about the Fizer and other covert vaccines with Alan, while editor in chief at Health Affairs Journal who joined us on Skype. I think we have to be prepared for some bumps in the road and not let them distract us from the overall incredibly good news we have right now, which is we have multiple vaccines with significant amounts of evidence that they are highly effective against the disease. And it may not be the case that every one of them is right. For every person just like is the case with almost any other medication that we have. Over time. We will figure out who are the best candidates for each and will use that information to make sure people get the best treatment possible. We are talking about a communicable disease. And so if The vast majority of people get a vaccination, and they're no longer communicable. Even if there are people who cannot receive the vaccine because, for example, they're susceptible to allergies, or they have another health condition that might make it risky for them to do so. The risk of that person getting the coronavirus Is very, very low. If it's mostly gone from the community, so vaccines don't have to reach every single person in order for them to work, which is different from, say, a cancer treatment. Where if it doesn't work for you, you need a different one. But going without, you're just not gonna get any treatment at all. You've outlined the overall good news here, which is if we could just get this into many of our arms. We're gonna be in a lot better shape. What challenges have you been reading about in learning about just published A really Interesting paper, and I should say one of the authors of the paper is President elect Biden's designee to run the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. And what it focuses on is the notion that the vaccine's effectiveness is on Lee. One factor and we have to worry a lot about the speed at which it gets out to the community. The share of people within the community who are willing to get the vaccine but also the level of disease burden in the community When we begin immunizing and I think that's where we can make the biggest difference right now, we're going through as we all know a terrible third spike. If we can bring that down, the vaccine will actually be more effective because the prevalence of cove it in the community will be lower, so we need to think of these has multiplier effect. It's not that the vaccine is a magic bullet. It's tremendously powerful, but it's more powerful if we're starting from a better place. Alan while is editor in chief of the Journal of Health Affairs.

First Covid vaccines to be offered to health workers, nursing homes, CDC panel says
"Developments on the coronavirus front this week. Infections are way up, but a vaccine we're told, is on its way. However, it's not here yet. We are in a humanitarian crisis with this pandemic. Dr. John Brown Steen, an epidemiologist and ABC News medical contributor, as cases continue to surge across the country, so two hospitalizations and deaths In a 24 hour period This week, 2879 people died of covert 19 That is the most recorded on a single day throughout the pandemic, and we haven't even hit the expected surge following the Thanksgiving holiday operation works Well, we need operation works speed for masking Operation works speed for testing.

It was gonna go to people that need it the most to people living in care homes, as well as their caregivers were told that millions of doses are going to Go out before the end of this year. Hospitals are standing by vaccination centers are getting set up.

"And a Fox News medical correspondent Joe conscious wheel New York, Mark. How are you? Great to see you. How you doing? All right. And even though these numbers are disturbing as far as measles cases that we're seeing now being reported on Monday for the fourth week in a row health officials now at at dozens of new cases to the years list of confirm ones, we're up to six hundred twenty six that's the highest number in the past five years and health officials saying in New York City, that's where the location of the largest outbreak in the country is of course, we talked to you about this last time are especially worried at least three hundred three cases being reported this year, virtually all in Brooklyn. And now, they're bracing even more for a bigger increase because of the eastern Passover gatherings and more people getting together. So what do we do here? Doctors thing seems to be getting out of control. Well, the reason it's out of control guys is because there's a lot of measles still around the world. And there's actually a hundred ten thousand cases already in two thousand and nineteen a around the world. So we wiped it wiped it out here in two thousand but every year travelers bring it back, and what we're seeing here is we're seeing clusters of noncompliance with an extremely effective vaccine we need the vaccine to be given to ninety five percent or more of everyone in a community. And by the way that actually means closer to one hundred percent compliance because not everybody can actually take it. But we're seeing more resistance to that in certain areas due to propaganda now, there's a big outbreak in Israel this year. So travels travelers are bringing it from Israel. They're in contact with it and then in in certain areas of New York Williamsburg being one Rockland county, New York being another Williamsburg being in Brooklyn, by the way. I mean, we're seeing compliance rates have about seventy percent, and that's due to propaganda. It's not really religious. It stood a propaganda that spread and makes people afraid that vaccines cause autism which has been disproven that they're unsafe which has been really disproven and actually the virus. Measles is much more dangerous than the than the vaccine is in cause pneumonia, actually, pretty commonly at hospitalizes people one out of ten to twenty times if you believe that that's a lot. It's actually a pretty serious virus? And we certainly don't want to see it spreading in order to prevent it. Spreading we've got to do two things. We've got to trace the cases we have called contact tracing. An isolate anybody who has measles. So they're not encountering dozens of people and to we have to vaccinate as many people as possible getting onto this vaccination. Dr Siegel officials are recommending that anybody born between nineteen fifty seven and nineteen eighty nine. That's a large breadth. They're actually get additional vaccines because they might not be fully protected is that right? Well, it's actually in the late fifties in the early sixties that we're looking at mostly they they may not be early fully vaccinated when the vaccine I came out for the first couple of years, we were only giving one shot, and you know, the vaccine the vaccination success rate may actually be only in the low nineties high eighties that period of time I test people for immunity. I think if anybody is in the area where they might encounter Musil's. I certainly have no problem with giving a booster. But I, but I also can check their immune status, and if they're immune their immune. So that's what I would do if you're not sure vaccinate. Okay. So if I if I at least we all want to go on a trip abroad, for example, I want I want to go to Israel, and I'm certainly born in between those years. Should I go to a doctor and see whether or not I need to get another vaccination? I would I would go to a doctor. And again what I do routinely is check immunity. If there's any question at all, you know, if there's any question at all, then you could get the vaccine, there's no downside to getting the vaccine, but I'm not routinely vaccinating travelers. What I am doing is testing. Tighter of anyone that I I've been doing that for years lease. I don't this. This is an anything new traveler going to an area where there's measles. I check the tighter. Dr Mark Siegel up medicine at New York University and medical director of Dr Radio New at NYU. We spoke about Rockland county in Brooklyn. And you know, of course, that that's just the judge has issued an order and actually three civil summons for parents who fail to comply with the mandate to vaccinate is that working at all. No, well, you know, what it's working bit down in New York City to actually have a mandatory vaccination or pay a fine, which I actually I believe is a misdemeanor. But that kind of fear is working because the whole problem is fear. Isn't it? It's fear of a vaccine versus fear of a virus versus fear of the government. It's a mess. But in Rockland county, it's not working because the, you know, executive order that you're not allowed in public places. If unless you're vaccinated was overruled on actually. In favor. I was actually in favor of that as a temporary measure just to get people's attention. You know, the point is public health versus personal liberty. And I think if you're putting a community at risk that has to Trump over personal liberty. It's a rough thing for me to say because obviously, we're huge believers impersonal personal freedom. But if you're putting other people at risk that becomes a public health problem or talking to Dr Mark Siegel, Fox News medical correspondent, you had a very interesting and disturbing column out last week Dr Siegel regarding in this gets your attention. When you see the headline the new killer fungus, and what we can do about it. And apparently this fungus has now reached levels in New York and New Jersey to lead the CDC, the attitude attitudes list of urgent threats tell us about this. Well, this is over six hundred cases in this probably is probably going to be over a thousand soon. And there was actually a couple of deaths over the last few days on this. It's sixty percent of the time. It's steadily it emerged from the soil. I believe that fungicides. Plays played a role. It's called see Auras Candida Auras. Now, you think of candidates simple yeast right candidate is yeast, but it can also infect you. And we worry about people that are immuno-compromised or very ill very old run down. We're seeing this bug emerge in nursing homes and a problem with it is it's too hardy. It's not like the usual candidates that will only live on moist surface. This will live on respirators on IV lines on the skin. So we can get into the nasal passages and people can get really sick. And the biggest problem is when I even looking for it. So we see somebody with a high fever. They have respiratory congestion. You know, maybe we don't know. What's happening? Exactly. Then that it ends a ends up being this ninety percent of the time. It's only resistant. Two one. But when antifungal drug so we can treat it most of the time. We have some new drugs that came out in two thousand ten that are pretty effective against it. We have other ones in the pipeline. But we're seeing a small percentage of cases, which are resistant to all of the anti fungal drugs. And this kind of resistance least, Joe is due to the fact that we overuse antifungal drugs. We overuse all all kinds of anti microbials as I said, we're we're using a lot of fungicide. I can't prove yet that the fungicides are causing the emergence of this resistant bugs, but we've seen it with other with other fungus that have occurred right in the setting of too much fungus. I being used Dr. Are you saying that we're overusing antibiotics is that part of the problem? That's a huge problem. And there's a new report out today that that that might actually lead to ten million deaths worldwide in in next couple of decades. It's a huge problem. But I wanted to sing wish between what's an antibiotic for bacteria, and what's an antifungal drug for fungi fungi being in this case single cell organisms that make a sport. But it's the same prowl at least it's the same problem. Whether you call it an anti fungal drug or antibiotic it's the same problem. It's it's it's because these things grow in millions of colonies they look for the combination to the vault. If of course, you're gonna kill off the ones that are susceptible gifts. Which one survive the ones that are resistant, the ones that are resistant survive than they end up propagating, and you can't get rid of them is Dr Mark Siegel, professor of medicine at New York University school of medicine medical director of Dr radio at NYU, Anna, Fox News medical correspondent, Dr Siegel.
