"Are drawn to the precautionary principle Whenever an innovation threatens to cause harm we should be exceedingly cautious before we allow it Examples in the history of medical advances demonstrate that in its most extreme forms the precautionary principle is self defeating The general point is you have to keep trying and don't let a setback make it so that you simply stop pushing forward So probably the best example for me because I lived through it because I'm at the University of Pennsylvania was Jesse gelsinger So Jesse Kelsey was a 19 year old man who lacked a certain liver enzyme that helped him convert food into energy which meant he was taking 30 pills a day and he had a restrictive diet which is hard for a teenager A teenager So he was willing to allow himself to be part of a trial where he received a gene therapy which was a common cold virus called adenovirus that was genetically engineered so that he couldn't reproduce itself and cause disease And what happened was very soon after he got that he had an overwhelming kind of sepsis like response I mean it looked like he had been infected with a bacteria that had overwhelmed him That actually ended up helping a lot of people down the line when you saw that he had an overproduction of an immune protein called interleukin 6 And at the time there was nothing to have countered that Now we have a monoclonal antibody called tocilizumab which can counter that Would that really put a chill in gene therapy research It really set it back a solid 20 years And I think we should have just learned from that and moved forward Instead you know we put all these kind of federal regulations to make sure it didn't happen again but of course it was going to happen again I mean you can't really legislate out these kinds of unfortunate problems because as you move forward into new territory you're always going to be surprised by some of the things that you find What was kind of chilling about what happened to Jesse genzlinger what decades ago was that he experienced cytokine storm a phrase we learned during COVID His immune system overreacted Many people in the early stages of COVID died precisely for that reason That's right And now we know that dexamethasone which is a steroid that inhibits your ability to develop a vigorous immune response is helpful You would think it would be counterintuitive to give something to suppress your immune system during an infection but that was exactly the right thing to do But again we learned as we went What are the things that the public ought to keep in mind then when taking in coverage of a new medicine or procedure or breakthrough I think you should get all the information you can So on October 26th the FDA's vaccine advisory committee will meet to discuss vaccines for the 5 to 11 year old They'll probably be about several thousand children who will have gotten this vaccine and will have data on what their immune response was will have data on safety We may well not have data on whether or not it worked We're going to try and say that well if you had this immune response it's likely to work Is that enough Is that enough information Do we know enough then to go forward and give this vaccine into hundreds of thousands or millions or tens of millions of children But realize that on the other side you know we're seeing a 150,000 cases in children a week We're seeing 2000 children being hospitalized every week Children now account for more than a quarter of the cases as this delta variant has reached down into this susceptible population and is causing them to be more likely to be infected than they were when the virus first came into the United States which point they only accounted for 3% of infections So this is now a childhood disease When do we know enough remembering that we never know everything And so that's always the balance that you have to take I mean I think that from the standpoint of a parent if the FDA has reviewed it if the CDC has reviewed it and they have come forward with the notion that we think we know enough I think that's fair because remember if you choose not to get it you may be one of those unfortunate parents who have to deal with their child in the hospital or worse Finally why did you title your book You bet your life Because at some level we always are I'm adding our life I mean if you look for example if this is a story just in the news in the last couple of weeks you know aspirin therapy you used to be given for everybody who was at high risk of a stroke or high risk of the heart attack had high levels of bad cholesterol had high blood pressure And then they sort of modified that to really it should just be for those people who've already had a stroke or had a heart attack Because if you take aspirin you know you increase your risk of bleeding including severe bleeding bleeding between your skull and your brain bleeding behind your eye et cetera So there are risks to taking aspirin And now even that's being modified you're always at some level betting your life And I guess in part it's because I'm.

"National Geographic documentary films presenting the rescue from the filmmakers of free solo the rescue chronicles the mission to save 12 boys and their coach from a flooded cave in Thailand now playing This is weekend tradition from NPR news I'm Scott Simon And thank you for joining us More shots for more arms The U.S. Food and Drug Administration's vaccine advisory committee says the agency should authorize booster shots for people who got the Johnson & Johnson COVID vaccine If the FDA agrees with this recommendation and that seems likely millions of Americans could soon roll up their sleeves for another dose and pure health reporter ping guang joins us pink Thanks so much for being with us Thanks for having me What is this panel What is their decision mean So the best recommendation came from the FDA's vaccine advisory committee this is a group of 19 voting members Their doctors immunologist infectious disease experts and their job is to help determine whether vaccines and treatments are safe and effective FDA official Peter marks reminded the panel that the goal for COVID vaccines is to save lives Vaccination is most important for preventing severe outcomes from SARS coronavirus two infection such as hospitalization and death In the U.S. the panel heard that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine might be just 68% effective at keeping people from getting hospitalized with COVID and that's not as good as the Moderna or Pfizer vaccines but the data they reviewed shows that giving an additional J&J shot could really improve protection Now there was some discussion of giving a Pfizer or Moderna booster to people who got J&J but the data was preliminary and no action was taken on that Instead the panel supported FDA authorization for a second J&J shot at least two months after the first shot And this is for anyone who's already received it and would apply to around 15 million people in the U.S. Second Johnson & Johnson shot for people who got that vaccine What about those who got the two dose Moderna vaccine Well the Moderna booster recommendation which the panel considered on Thursday was a bit more nuanced So here the panel voted that only specific groups of people those 65 and up are people at high risk of getting COVID should get a third shot This is the same recommendation they made for the Pfizer booster which the FDA authorized in September for these same groups And the reason for the difference is that the Moderna vaccine is holding up well It's still more than 90% effective at keeping people from landing in the hospital with COVID but people are still getting breakthrough infections Here's Peter marks again However considering the value of vaccination 1 may also need to consider the potential form of mild to moderate infection such as blood clots and long COVID-19 Marks also said data from Israel made him worried that the vaccine's protection could slide to dangerous lows over time So he wants to give out boosters before that happens Penguin do we expect this recommendation to become more than just a recommendation Well the FDA will likely accept the panel's advice and authorize Moderna and J&J booster's next week And then the discussion moves to the CDC Their advisory committee meets on Thursday to review the booster data and to make further recommendations on how they shot should be used And over levy and FDA panelists who's also a Harvard Medical School professor says the committee might also consider expanding booster access for the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines It's currently available for those 65 and older but he thinks that could change This is a dynamic pandemic We don't know what the winter will bring What the dynamic of spread will be what variance may emerge and also what new research will come forward in terms of the impact of the pandemic on those younger age groups But it's important to note this week that the World Health Organization pleaded with countries not to give boosters because the global supply vaccines is so limited and there are some places that still have not had access to any vaccines And Pierre health reporter ping Wang thanks so much for being with us Thanks for having me And as those booster shots get offered to more and more Americans experts hope this latest wave of the pandemic may continue to recede and that could be political relief for the Biden administration which would like to focus on proposals for the economy And bears run elving joins us Ron thanks so much for being with us Good to be with you Scott As I don't have to tell you so much attention has been focused on those Americans who say that they just will not get vaccinated under any circumstance Does noting that in reporting on that sometimes eclipse the real picture It's a glaring feature of the picture to be sure but certainly not the whole picture Truth is more than two thirds of Americans have now had at least one shot And the numbers are higher for adults and still higher for seniors That's clearly helping to get infections down getting serious down deaths are way down That is surely important And it is the bigger part of the picture So the Kaiser poll tells us only one American in 8 Flat out refuses the vaccination That's a pretty small number relatively speaking but exceptions are always interesting The abnormal makes better stories than the normal and people fighting any kind of mandate are often very interested in making their case in public whatever it is Let's turn to what we learned this week about investigations by the U.S. Congress and others into the attempted insurrection on January 6th There was a I'll call it noteworthy charge yesterday Yes it's surprising to see the charges extend to a capital police officer who in the aftermath warned a Facebook friend who had been inside the capitol to get his video off of Facebook because it was after all proof of a crime But pretty good advice but by urging the eliminating of evidence you might be obstructing the investigation that's the charge The bigger news this week was Steve Bannon's refusal to comply with his subpoena And a horse the apparent commitment of the panel to prosecute and criminally for that is the apparent commitment of the panel They haven't actually done it yet to prosecute him criminally for contempt of Congress Bannon was one of Trump's campaign managers back in 2016 He served for a matter of months in The White House ending way back in 2017 more recently he did though take a very active role in the lead up to January 6th He had no official connection to The White House at that time but president Trump has told him to claim executive privilege anyway so that one's going to court What will the committee do Where do they plan to do about congressional colleagues who openly supported the rioters Well they certainly want to have them testify They want to hold them to account especially if they helped provide guidance for people who are entering the capital so that they could locate certain people's offices inside Some of the Republicans may want to tell their side of the story in some place and in some time but they are not going to willingly cooperate with this committee so more trips to the courthouse coming on that one Let me ask you about a new Gallup poll Democrats of course continue to try to come to an agreement about the scale of infrastructure spending That will be let's remind ourselves measured in trillions According to this poll 52% of Americans say the government is already doing too much And that's up more than 10% from last year Yes that's right The Gallup folks have been asking this question for nearly 30 years Scott and usually the majority says that the government is trying to do too much There have only been two times in three decades that a Gallup majority said they wanted the government to do more One was right after 9 11 no surprise many Americans were looking for greater Homeland Security government protection The other was last year which may well have been an outlier largely because of COVID A lot of people were depending on government things that usually do not And expecting to need more help in the near future So this year with another COVID relief package in March all these big spending bills pending now Other Gallup reading is back to its more typical level of skepticism about government and government spending You could say it's all part of getting back to normal And President Biden made a concession kind of yesterday right He said that it's not going to be a $3.5 trillion package not a big shock some of us have been saying that since spring The big package was like a family leaving on a driving vacation Everyone comes out of the house with lots of suitcases Everything they wanted to take along on the.

The Bay Area was locking down for three weeks. You and I talked just is those closures were set to start and you told me and I'm paraphrasing here. But you said it could be quite a while longer. And here we are a year later. And I just wonder if you can reflect on that. You know, very prescient call that you made then. Yeah. It is really amazing to think about that time in a year ago, and I will say, Well, I did think it was definitely gonna be longer than you know, 2 to 4 weeks. I did not. Envision at being as long as that husband s. So I do think the magnitude of this pandemic has continued to surprise us. Absolutely. California for folks who don't know has a vaccine advisory committee. You serve on that committee, and we know that President Biden has set a goal of getting everyone eligible. Vaccinated by May 1st across the country. Does that seem like a realistic goal for California right now? I think so.

F.D.A. Analyses Find Johnson & Johnson Vaccine Works Well
"May soon be available in the United States. The Food and Drug Administration could decide as soon as this weekend to authorize a vaccine made by pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson for emergency use. The FDA today released its evaluation of the new vaccine and NPR's Joe Palka joins us to describe what they found Hijo. Hi, Ari. So there were a lot of details in the FDA is evaluation, but bottom line. Was it positive or negative about it? Well, they don't exactly give conclusions like that. But general, you'd have to say that the analysis was positive. The FDA based its judgment on a large study involving some 40,000 participants that was carried out primarily in the United States, South Africa and Brazil. Now, this vaccine only requires a single shot, so participants either got the vaccine or a placebo. And what researchers found was that overall, the vaccine efficacy was about 66% in preventing moderate to severe cove in 19. And 85% against more serious disease. Stacy Schultz Terry is a professor of infectious diseases at ST Jude Children's Research Hospital, and she took a look at the FDA analysis. I did not see anything that would make me pause in recommending that somebody would go get this shot. Joe tell us more about that 66% number because a lot of people have zeroed in on that to say, Wait. Does this mean it's less effective than the Fizer and Madonna vaccines, which reported close to 95% of efficacy? Yeah, The numbers suggest that but you have to have a little context here. First of all, you have to remember that. Initially people would have been satisfied with the vaccine that was just 50% of efficacy. So this is the first vaccine to come. If this had been the first vaccine to come along, people would have been thrilled. Second vaccines behave differently when the rolled out to millions of people, and so there may be changes in the numbers going forward and third variants have popped up around the world. And Schultz Kerry says the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is the first to be tested against those and it did well, African see against the virus circulating in the U. S Good African see against thesis South African and the Brazilian variance as well. And the Johnson and Johnson vaccine is easier to store and distribute than the other two. Tell us about that. Well, yes, I mean, the first obvious thing is that the only requires one shot And that means people don't have to come back. You don't have to chase after them to make sure they get a second shot, so that makes logistic easier. And second of all, it's not as it's easier to store. It doesn't require these special freezers that the modern a vaccine requires. And so what happens next? We said there could be emergency authorization as soon as this weekend. Well, the process works like this. The FDA receives a bunch of material from the company and then they evaluated and that's what they released today and then before they make a decision, they convened a group called the Vaccine Advisory Committee. And they will meet on Friday to discuss and evaluate and two over the data, and by the end of the day, they'll issue some sort of a recommendation to the FDA and the FDA generally follows the recommendations of this advisory committee. And how much of a difference is this likely to make in the supply situation if there are three circulating rather than to now? Well, it's going to make a difference. Maybe not right away. There's going to be a few million three or four million doses released almost immediately if the vaccine is approved or authorized. 20 million. They expect by the end of March and 100 million by the end of June, so it's not going to solve the problem right away. But it will certainly help NPR's Joe

W news. Good morning. I'm Matt Gillam. This week, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a big change as to who would be next in line for a covert 19 vaccine eligibility will no longer be based in occupation. Instead, vaccine priority will go by age. That has sparked concern from groups representing essential workers, high risk Californians and people with disabilities and the Emperor Otto is the executive director of Disability Rights. California is also a member of the state's Community Vaccine Advisory Committee, the board that helps shape decisions on California's vaccination plans. He does not agree with this decision, not equitable and people are going to die unnecessarily, and we think it's wrong and we're hoping the governor will change his mind. By some estimates. Californians with disabilities are 2 to 3 times more likely to die of covert than the general population. What was announced this week is all about efficiency. And does not take into account equity. There are lots of people under 65 who are at risk of dying from Cove it and they should be the same priority of somebody over 65. That's not the way the state came down this week. For the time being only health care workers, residents and staff at long term care facilities and people 65 older are eligible to get vaccinated in L. A county. The changing eligibility standards will be spelled out further in the coming weeks as the inoculation effort expands.

"And you are listening to K C R W Earlier this week, Governor Newsome announced a big change as to who would be next in line for a covert 19 vaccine. Change involves eligibility. It's no longer based on occupation. Instead, vaccine priority will go by age. All the details of how it'll work haven't been released yet, but it has sparked some concern from groups. Representing essential workers, Piras, Californians and people who are disabled people in the latter communities have been sounding the alarm, some sharing their frustrations and stories under the Twitter hashtag high risk, See a Andy Imparato. Otto is the Apartado is the executive director of Disability Rights, California He's also a member of the State Community Vaccine Advisory Committee. The board that helped shape decisions on Californians. That or California's vaccination plans and he joins us today. Hello, Andy. Great to be with you. Well, great. Do what have you so this decision really shakes up Who's next in line for the vaccines before it seemed some essential workers would be up next to swell his folks with underlying conditions. But what's your take on all this? Did you see it coming? You know, we didn't see it coming. You know, we've been meeting as a vaccine advisory committee since before the holidays and I feel like what What's happened with the state if they started out, saying they wanted an efficient process, and they wanted equity in the sense that Underserved and underrepresented populations would have access to the vaccine in a fair way, and what was announced this week is all about efficiency and does not take into account equity. There are lots of people under 65. We're at risk of dying from Cove it and they should be the same priority of somebody over 65. But that's not the way the state came down this week. So now we're working to change the governor's mind and to put more of an emphasis on equity. So little has been shared as to what it's going to mean in practice. There's no word yet on when people who are high risk and disabled are going to get vaccinated. What is this priority of prioritization shift mean for those communities? I think I'm glad your reference the hashtag on Twitter. You can see the compelling stories. There are a lot of people who were so excited when the vaccine started coming. They felt like It's a vaccine was literally going to save their lives. And we will we heard on our committee called last Wednesday is that all of those people are gonna have to wait, probably until June. While California vaccinate people over 65. That's just unacceptable. That is not fair. It's not equitable, and people are going to die unnecessarily, and we think it's wrong and we're hoping the governor will change his mind. And so what are disabled Californians thing about the decision? I mean, I just got off a town hall meeting with the 1000 people who are very, very angry. Very, very frustrated. There are lots of people with disabilities who can't control who comes into their homes. You know, they need somebody to come and help them get out of bed. Helps them with activities of daily living. Some of those folks have been vaccinated. Some of them have refused the vaccine. So these air folks who are at high risk of getting covert through no, nothing that they're doing. They can't mitigate the risk. And they're being told to wait until June because we want to have a simple system where everybody over 65. The state goes first in mine, and we just feel like that's unacceptable. Absolutely. We should be prioritizing Older California, but we should prioritize essential workers and people with disabilities. At the same time, it's a question that's plagued. Many people since the pandemic started. You are a member of the state's community Vaccine Advisory committee. Did you know how the state came to this decision? And did you have any input as a representative of disabled Californians? I mean, we have been arguing consistently to prioritize high risk people with disabilities, and it just feels like they didn't listen to us. They basically what they've said to us specifically is that we don't have good data that shows them how many people with disabilities under 65 have died from covert. Because we don't have good data That's not being collected, which is not our fault. We're being punished for not having the data and it's not rocket science to know that if you have an underlying health condition, you're at higher risk of dying from covert the lots of disabilities. Where if you get covered, you are much more likely to die or have serious health consequences from a down syndrome is a good example Three times more likely to die If you have down cinnamon. You get Kobe. Yeah. I mean, you say the state didn't listen. Why do you think they did not listen to you? I think part of it is that the people that are making the decisions for the state do not have a deep understanding of the disability community. They're trying to make decisions based on science, but they're not accounting for the fact that science does not have good information about people displaced because they don't identify us in their research, and it's not our fault. We're a very diverse population. We don't show up in studies. So then we get punished when they're making decisions about equity, and I mean, we're very concerned about it. There's a national movement on this in California is not the only state. But lots of other states are prioritizing. People just believe more than California. Sure, just another 30 seconds left. But what should the state do next? And can they change anything for these communities? I mean, we really want the governor to sit down with the disability community and hear from us directly and understand how concerned we are with this decision. We don't feel like the governor has engaged our community. And we feel like it's critical that the governor take responsibility to protect the lives of people with displays, which is what he did at the very beginning of the pandemic. The shutdowns at the beginning the pen never worry about saving lives of older California's and people who were vulnerable because of their health care. We want him to do the same thing. Now you and the Emperor Otto is the executive director of disability. Right, California. Andy. Thanks so much for coming on. We appreciate you taking the time. Thank you..

"vaccine advisory committee" Discussed on Progressive Talk 1350 AM
"Already working this last number of days to increase the number of distribution sites and, more importantly, to accelerate the efforts of who Can distribute the vaccines. Joining us now is Colleen Shelby reporter at the L A times. Thanks for joining us, Colleen Thanks for having me wanted to talk about the vaccine rollout that's been going on in California really across the country. The vaccine rollout has been pretty slow. I think the CDC had said something about less than 29% of vaccines have been administered so far, and California in particular, has been experiencing some really crazy numbers. When it comes to Cove it. There's a lot of equipment shortages and ambulance shortages when it comes to hospitals. And Governor Gavin Newsom on Monday said that only about 35% of doses had been administered in California. So like I said, just a lot of different things going on, but calling, tell us a little bit. Why we think that the rollout has been so slow. Unfortunately, there's not one clear answer. At this point. There seems to be a variety of factors that are playing into this sluggish roll out that we're seeing one big one that we reported on last week was the fact that there are frontline workers throughout the state that are turning down the vaccine. There's no hard numbers at this point of how many but anecdotally sand, county officials and different counties that that they were hearing you know, as many as 40 to 50% were declining, the shot or asking toe. Wait. The related Lee. When you have an extra vaccine dose, you need to figure out what to do with it, because there's you know, a limited shelf life. It's about six hours before vaccine by all goes to waste. And because there's no streamline process right now of how to distribute leftover vaccines, there is now another scramble that takes place of figuring out how to get somebody in line that might not be prioritized. Those are two big things that are kind of playing out right now. Definitely not the only issues but To that We're paying attention to alive and are noticing that it must be a factor in some way. Yeah, Let's expand on that a little bit if we can, because the logistical hurdles of this are pretty big and we're working on this tiered system where obviously we've heard of it. Frontline health care workers and people in nursing homes are first in line to get it. But if a lot of frontline health care workers are refusing to get it, do you fall further down the line? Do you look for other people still in that first here, and this is one of those things that's complicating things because As you mentioned, you know, there's a limited number. They have to be done with a certain amount of time and very quickly that time can be used up. That's exactly right. And we heard from the hospital that said that they had distributed doses to several non frontline workers after giving access to all eligible staff, and they told us that that included technicians and custodial workers, But, you know, it seems pretty unclear in certain regards what to do with those extra doses and At first last week. You know we were hearing that people jumped the lines. Possibles could be sanctioned. There could be penalty versus this week. The message really seems to be about okay. We need to figure out what to do with these doses so they don't go to waste. And how can we make the guidance a little softer, so people who might not be at the front of the line are eligible to receive it just simply, So you're not throwing out a good vaccine does We're hearing other stories in Northern California. Specifically, there was a hospital that one of their freezers broke. And the vaccine was very quickly getting to that point of not being viable anymore. So they put out the call and said anybody that can Come and wants to get the vaccine. Come now get it, And I think there was 600 vaccine shots that they were scrambling to give out in about two hours. So you know, this is just kind of the comparing contrast for how this thing has been going on. My colleague Nina Sharp because she wrote about that earlier, and it seems to be a situation that's not as uncommon as we initially believe it to be a week or two ago, and we were hearing instances of anecdotes of you know someone getting the vaccine that wasn't frontline worker or a nursing home, resident or staff member. It seems like he's one off moments, but what we're hearing now is that it's happening more and more. This instance is very specific with the broken freezer, but it does seem that other areas are having to kind of turn to this type of distribution scramble at times as well. Yeah, there was the issue in New Mexico. They lost about 75 doses on Christmas Day and Connecticut. There was a power outage caused by one of the winter storm, so they had to do kind of a similar thing. Just Tried to distribute as many as they could before they weren't able to be used anymore. So, yeah, these are some of the big problems. What is the governor of California? Gavin Newsom said on how he plans to at least help fix the issue. My understanding is he wants to increase the number of distribution sites and then allow other professionals. To be able to administer the shots as well. Right. We learned that dentists are now going to be signed off to train to be vaccine distributors or facilitators, which would have potentially help on the administration. And you know if there's on it of people who are able to give someone a shot, this could very well help that. She is also trying to track how many frontline workers are turning down the vaccine and at the county level. I think they're trying to use that data to better figure out who they need to educate and how they could help with the overall vaccine hesitancy that may be taking place. And then the state is also trying to soften the guidance in terms of who could get the vaccine. I know Governor Chris and talked about that yesterday and possible that would see different language pop up this week. The Vaccine Advisory committee is meeting tomorrow and that's a 60 member team of various people throughout the state. So we may learn more about how people are going to be prioritized. If changes may shift. That should be an interesting three hour long conversation to listen to Colleen Shelby reporter at the L A times. Thank you very much for joining us. Thank you for having me..
