"Noel King. And I'm Steve Inskeep. What does it take to get much of this country vaccinated in 100 days, President Biden promised 100 million shots in that time, which is an enormous logistical task, and it also involves supply. You need enough vaccines to distribute. Visor and Madonna each promised to deliver 100 million doses by the end of March. But we've learned the company's might fall short. NPR pharmaceuticals correspondent Sidney Lumpkin is on the line. Good morning. Good morning, So how far behind are they? So they each have agreed. Both visor. Madonna have agreed to deliver 100 million doses to the federal government in the first quarter of the year, so by the end of March Both companies are delivering about 4.3 million doses a week. We know that because we can see how many doses the government is allocating to the states, But these companies need to start delivering about 7.5 million doses a week. If they're going to reach that 100 million dose mark by the end of March, so the math does not favor them. They'd have to almost double their rate of production. Mm hmm. And I asked several people, you know, Can they do that, including John Avalon? It who's been consulting for drug companies since the 19 nineties. I think it's going to be a real challenge for them. To hit that contracted target. There's just no question about that. Basically, everything has to go right for these companies to pull it off, and a lot can go wrong. Equipment is expected to break and need repairs. The vaccines have to pass inspections before they can be shipped. And, of course, vaccine production also depends on an ample supply of chemical ingredients, vials and skilled workers. Basically Avalon, it says. It's a miracle. These companies have been able to deliver the doses they have so far does the type of vaccines make this even more complicated. It does. So these are M RNA vaccines. They've been studied for a decade. But this is the first time they're being made on a large scale. I spoke with David Gardner, who until this week was the senior adviser to the now former FDA commissioner Stephen Han. Butler says that Visor and Madonna are working at top capacity already, I'd rather hear the companies have fallen short of their production goal, but managed to maintain their quality control. Basically, we don't want to rush that process because then the vaccines might not work. Well, what are the government and the company's saying when you reached out to them with this information about the Matthew did an operation warp speed spokesman under the Trump administration told me last week that they're still expecting to hit 100 million doses for each company by the end of March. Visor didn't get back to me. Though its last deliveries to some European countries this week, Madonna says it's still on track to meet the goal, but they don't really disclose more production details than that. You said the Trump Administration got back to you, but now there's a new administration in the last couple of days. What do we expect from them? Well, you know, this came up at a White House press conference yesterday, Dr. Anthony Fauci was asked if the Biden administration is trying to increase vaccine production. Yeah, as well as to utilize what we hope will be another player in the field that J and J. Johnson as well as other of the companies. He's referring to other vaccines that are next in line for the FDA is green light. The new administration has also committed to being more forthcoming with information, and that's something that would please Dr Luciano Borio, a former acting chief scientist at the FDA. It would be nice to be able to have a lot more transparency around the projections would the understanding that so many things can go wrong at any given time? And by may pull, build on the Trump administration's use of the defense Production Act. NPR Pharmaceuticals correspondent Sidney Lumpkin. Thanks so much, you bet. Millions of Americans celebrated President Biden's inauguration. But there are also many Americans who don't accept him as the country's leader Donald Trump's bogus election fraud claims are persisting in more rural, more conservative parts of the country.

Good morning, So let's take right in here. What do we know about this deal? So, as you said it covers an additional 100 million doses and that cost the U. S government in additional $2 billion. This is the second major follow on order by the government in the last two weeks. This one is a lot heart was a lot harder to pull off because the contract terms were a bit more of a challenge with Madonna, which, of course ized the other authorized Corona virus vaccine. It was pretty straightforward as an extension of their original contract that was signed over the summer, but with visor even though they already had an existing contract, they still had to basically need to draw up a whole new agreement to get more doses. Okay, so now that that deal is done, when do we expect these additional doses? Toe? Be out the door, Which is the big question? Yeah, There was some concern last week that Fizer actually wouldn't be able to supply as many doses in the second quarter of 2021 because it had deals with other countries, and they wanted vaccine, too. It looks like the arrangement now is that 70 million doses will be delivered by the end of June and the remaining 30 million will be delivered by the end of July. So what does that mean? In terms of the vaccine? Roll out how? How fast we thought it would be and whether or not this might might change the time frame. Well, a roll out like this isn't going to dramatically change the things in the next couple of months, but it's going to help. That's the vaccination effort, pick up steam through the spring and into the summer. Okay, so we have five year by on tech. Of course, we had the Madonna vaccine, which began shipping for emergency use this week. Let's look at this broadly. I mean, can people start feeling like we can point to a time when everyone is United States who wants a vaccine will be able T O get one Well between both companies right. The country will have 400 million doses by late summer. Remember, both of these vaccines required two doses, so that covers 200 million people, But that's nearly two thirds of the population, so the coverage would be significant, but it wouldn't be universal. And of course, we should also remember that there are still other vaccines that are being developed. On but are you know they could be the next to be to go through the authorization process with the FDA, So the next one could be Johnson and Johnson, for example, and then there, there are still others, So that's all. It's all positive.

Reports sheds light on how willing people might be to get a shot once a vaccine is cleared. Some factors would make us adults more willing to receive a covert 19 vaccine than others. For example, if the vaccine goes through, the FDA is full approval process. More people would be willing to take it then, if it goes through a truncated version called an emergency use authorization. That's according to researchers at Cornell University they surveyed about 2000 people for their study published on Tuesday in the medical journal JAMA Open. The study also shows US adults would be more willing to get a hypothetical Corona virus vaccine, depending on who endorses it.

There will be no presidential debate on October 15th and the commission is turning its attention to preparations for the final debate on the 22nd in Nashville, Tennessee. The original schedule began to fall apart. When the commission announced on Thursday it was making next week's town hall style debate, virtual for health and safety reasons, given President Trump's recent covert 19 diagnosis, But Trump and his campaign balked. Joe Biden then announced he was scheduling a town hall television event with ABC News.

But even once it gets FDA approval, there will be some hurdles as NPR's Sidney Lumpkin reports. The president is one of about 10 people to receive an experimental monoclonal antibody treatment for covert 19 outside of a clinical trial. The drug is still being studied. But in a video posted to Twitter on Thursday, Trump promised that the FDA will soon authorize it for emergency use. In fact, senior health and human services official Paul Mango says there isn't enough for everyone currently. A zit today have access to a couple 100,000 doses of the monoclonal antibody. We expect that volume to exceed a total of a million before year end. 2020 HHS will allocate those doses to states as it did over the summer with another drug run disappear.

This approach allows Operation warp speed to award the money quickly but can weaken the oversight and transparency of traditional government contracting. Robin Feldman, a professor at the University of California Hastings College of the Law, says it makes some sense to cut through red tape during a crisis. But there is a tradeoff. We have to be on a wartime footing. We have to operate. And in a different way, however, We have to be careful about what we throw out in that process.
