‘We should be substantially back to normal’ by summer 2021, says Operation Warp Speed's chief science advisor

"Now here at home, officials leaving operation Warp speed say around mid December. 6.4 million doses of fighters. Vaccine will be shipped out across the US in an initial push this after it receives unexpected emergency authorization months of slowly the chief science adviser to operation Warp Speed, telling CNBC he expects life in the United States said to return to normal. Summer, but we hope that we would have vaccinated 70 or 80% of the U. S population by May or June off 2021 So I would hope that summer should be substantially back to normal. Yeah, So it's Zisson. Important challenge, however. People need to know that every year between 114 180 Million doses of flu vaccine produced distributed Inoculated in the U. S population in a period that goes between the month of August. In the month of May be January. So you know we may be doubling that number and over the period of time, But you know, it's not. It's not going from scratch, which was very different than the testing. So Channels exist. The warehouses exist. Uh, we have, you know, uh, 25 sites that are involved in the manufacturing in the feeling of these vaccines, So you know it's a big challenge, of course, but way think Gonna achieve it. How do you get enough people convinced? Yeah, I should take this because the polls look ugly. Yes, It's a great concern on really. It's very unfortunate. That the political context in which the development of this vaccine took place has You made it or exacerbated The hesitancy on the lack of trust that comes from the fact that we went very fast, but people need to understand. What is this? We went very fast because we built on 10 15. Years of Discovery and development work that took place around the platform technology is the basics in which this vaccine by which these vaccines are made. Understanding of source one and murders So we didn't start from a blank piece of paper. Please keep your ears open and your mind open, Listen and then judge on the facts and the data.

Fresh update on "flu vaccine" discussed on Bloomberg Intelligence

"Of potentially groundbreaking Coben 19 vaccines, but they're still laugh to be figured out. Our next guest points out concerns over distribution hurdles. Joining us to break it down his Bloomberg intelligence, senior Healthcare analyst Jonathan Palmer, Jonathan, Thanks so much for joining us here, You know, we were just chatting that you know the focus. It appears there's gonna be moving from the science, which we're getting a lot of good science coming out of these farmer companies to now the distribution Vaccines in the coming months. Give us a sense of kind of how you think that's going to play out. Sir Paul and thanks for having me on, you know, so there's been a lot of press around the hurdles that we have here for vaccine distribution, particularly around some of the novel technologies that these first vaccines Utilized. Both visor and Moderna are what's called a messenger RNA vaccines, and they require some pretty stringent cold storage requirements. And so it's been getting a lot of press around. You know, how do we actually tackle this problem? But my view is that you know, well, it's going to be more difficult than our typical vaccine distribution program. Much of the logistics in infrastructure here is already in place. Distributors distribute hundreds of millions of doses of vaccines every year, for example of the seasonal flu vaccine. Is close to $200 million per year that get distributed and I think what we're gonna have here is really a trial run between now and your end. So it's likely that these two vaccines will be approved in December, and then they'll start, you know, shipping doses, and I think we'll get a dry run of how this is actually the work in practice versus you know, full, widespread distribution across the entire U. S. Give us more perspective on when we say cold. What with my cold, like just how cold how cold they have to stay. When can they just sit and hang out in a freezer? When can they just sit and hang out? Walk us through that. Sure. So these messenger RNA vaccines from Madonna and Fizer require what they call ultra cold storage for just keeping them safe for. Let's say up to six months, and that's in the visor case. I believe it's negative 75 degrees Celsius. It's a little lower for Madonna, and that's just to keep it. On the shelf and stable for for a couple months. Once they get thought, there's a different requirement. And really, interestingly, when Madonna updated us on their program, they actually have a new positive storage requirements and so visors still renewed needs to remain pretty cold once it's thought, and it has a shelf life of about 5 to 7 days, they said. Once it's it's taken out of that freezer, but the maternal vaccine they now say, can be held in a regular freezer. That You would find in a doctor's office or a hospital facility for up to 30 days, so There's really just the aspect of storing it for six months. And I think when we think about what's gonna happen in terms of the cadence of one this vaccine just those has come to market. These are gonna be sitting in the fridge is for six months. You know, they're probably gonna get thought out and delivered administered immediately. Jonathan. So what are the companies that actually manufacture these vaccines are they could be manufactured by the former super companies themselves, or they're just Fans all over the world that the manufacturer pharmaceuticals well, there's a lot of different partnerships out there for the various companies. And so there are some contract manufacturers who are stepping in some of the big companies like Wanda. Thermo Fisher and others and site evil, which is a unit of Danaher. But primarily, I think for the first two, they're going to come to market. Sizer and Moderna. They're gonna be doing a lot of manufacturing themselves. In fact, Visor has two facilities. One in Michigan and one in Belgium, where they're gonna be doing some of the initial logistics out of those two spots. Oh, I was gonna say in terms of internationally like where does this leave those vaccines? Because you could make it sound like it's no big deal. The cold storage here in the U. S. But in Africa that's not gonna fly. No, and that's where really, I think we're still in a wait and see mode and we had to see how some of these other vaccines come to market. You know, there was just some positive news out of AstraZeneca and their vaccine and They've probably been the most prolific with signing deals with with other companies, and they don't have that They're using a different technology so they don't have the very stringent requirements. So, really, we need to see the AstraZeneca's the Merc's and the changes come to market with that second wave of vaccines to really come up with a global solution that you know that isn't just for the developed nations. So, John. What are some of the companies just remind us that are in the drug distribution business that we should be paying attention to sure. In the U. S. There's there's primarily three on the distributor side, and they're called the Big Three. It's in the Kesten Amerisourcebergen and Cardinal Health now McKesson Have a contract with CDC to distribute vaccines and a pandemic, so they're kind of first in line to quarterback this day. These efforts, but there's really everybody across the supply chains involved. HHS has signed deals with the big retail pharmacies to administer to vaccines once they're available. Also CVS and Walgreens a signed contract to deliver vaccines..

As COVID-19 Vaccine Nears, Employers Consider Making It Mandatory

"Or require. That is a dilemma Many employers are facing as a covert 19 vaccine comes closer to reality. Ah, quarter million people in the U. S have died from Cove it once there's a shot can that can prevent illness Should it be mandatory in the workplace? NPR's Andrea Hsu has more Only a couple of months into the pandemic. Holly Smith had made up her mind. Her restaurant Cafe Juanita in Kirkland, Washington, would not reopen the diners until there was a covert 19 vaccine. She's She's already already told told her her staff staff you you are are going going to to get get vaccinated. vaccinated. Some Some of of my my young young millennials millennials are are like like Saran Saran taking. taking. This This is is a a directive directive like like as as a a mandate. mandate. Is Is that that how how you you mean mean it? it? And And that's that's that's that's a scary thing. You know, like Yeah. Yes, yes, Smith had 28 employees before the pandemic. She's had to lay off all but five. Her fine dining spot has become a take out on Lee business. Even with a much smaller staff, Smith is serious about safety. She requires her workers to get tested. If they go on vacation with people outside their bubble, or if they're showing any sign of illness. I believe in civil liberties and all those different things, but you know, we have people who live with their parents. We have people who lived with her husband, who has diabetes. The staff have to be healthy and safe before you could move forward, she says, you know for vaccinated I think I can move out in the world and be responsible for these 28 or 30 people. Plus all the people coming in. Now, if you're wondering, Can she actually do this? Can she require her workers to get vaccinated? The answer appears to be yes, but her workers also have the right to request exemptions. Under federal law. Someone could say I have a medical or religious reason I can't be vaccinated and companies must try to provide accommodations. It's incredibly hard to manage a mandate. Johnnie Taylor Jr is president of the Society for Human Resource Management, He says Each request must be evaluated on its own merits. Now imagine if there were hundreds of them. A recent poll found four in 10. Americans don't want the vaccine, though that polling was done before anyone knew how well the vaccines would work. So this is a true headache for HR professionals. That's why you're likely to see many companies strongly encourage the vaccine, but stopped short of mandating it. Take, for example, the pork producers Smithfield, the company told NPR. They're not anticipating a firm mandate, but they want to offer the vaccine on site. Even with all the headaches, Taylor things many employers will go for the mandate. After all, they have an obligation to get rid of any known hazards in the workplace like Covad. It's real and it's devastating. So I think the dynamic changes. Employers are actually going to position this as I need to do this full stop. Now. There are some workplaces that already mandate the flu vaccine, most commonly hospitals. Dr. James McDevitt is dean of clinical affairs at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. He says the annual flu shot is required for some 14,000 people, doctors, nurses, med students, even the clerks. They're sitting in a computer that don't see live patients. It's the right thing to do for society, he says. If you claim an exemption, you have to wear a mask. Now with the covert vaccine. Baylor is not going to make it mandatory until they can actually get enough supply to cover everyone and until it's been deemed safe, not just by the FDA, McDivitt says, but by his own colleagues. Johnny Taylor Jr says. Whatever companies decide there are likely to be challenges. And so Congress and state legislators are going to have to think about how to offer some protection on both sides. Legal protection for companies that mandate the vaccine in case someone has a bad reaction. Even though you will have to sign a waiver before you get the shot. They've also gotta protect the employers who decide not to make it. Mandate and then who are sued by employees who contracted Taylor has been meeting with federal employment officials telling them employers want to do the right thing, but they're in a tough spot, and they're going to need help getting through this.

"But not only that, if you do get him. They're going to be a lot milder and you're going to get over a lot quicker. According to you. In clinical trials, for instance, they did a study and health care professionals 200 health care professionals when they gave him a green tea capsule twice a day. Cut way back on the on the number of flu infections compared to those on placebo. Cut back by like 50% and health care professionals, people getting sneezed on all the time. And another study and a couple of, um um assisted living homes, You know, nursing homes in Japan. Also study like that in Florida, by the way, what they gave people green tea capsules a cut way back on getting sick with the flu. Now, mind you. These people already had flu immunizations. But when you're older, flew immunizations don't take so well. You don't create an abundance of antibodies. You create fewer antibodies down, the younger person would do. So now they're trying higher concentration flu vaccines. And older people. I don't know. I don't know. But Nanny event. Um um There is some safety data on that. I just I know I react to the flu immunization. Should I get the flu immunization? I'm thinking about it. But I'm one of those few people that over reacts to it like I'll get a headache for weeks after the flu vaccine, or I'll get like a fever for three days. Do poorly with him. Not everybody does my wife and I both do poorly with the flu vaccine. A lot of people just get like like a little discomfort. Way to get the injection. Me and my wife. We react to my wife and I should say, Where's my English? Where's my grammar and any event getting back to it? So we don't rely on a flu vaccine We do. Relying on this year will be wearing our masks and we'll be you know, keeping our distance from people most of the time, but we'll be doing plenty. We already started on the green tea disrupts the flavors and when they showed the study in nursing homes and cut back on the incidents of the flu like 79%, these people are already immunized, but their immune system is so weakened by age. That they still get sick even when immunization, but they don't get as sick. It's a lot clearly It's a lot less dangerous and infection so they should still get the immunization. Okay. We have to go toe a nad because we're having ourselves..

"Again and this happening in so many different communities across the country this time around. What are our PPE levels like? That was another issue that we had to deal with in the spring. It seems like that has gotten better, but will it be able to withstand the amount? Of need that's likely going to be taking place across the country for the next few months. Well, that's that's an extra question. Ryan. The TP levels are always a concern. At the moment. We're not feeling about shortages of Peopie. In health care settings. But again, that does not mean Increasingly putting pressure on the hospital system is not going to deplete those resource is the resource is our finite. At the moment if they're able to keep up with the demand, But when you look at these cases in many places they are going up exponentially. And so whether it's running out of Peopie like 95 masks for health care workers running at a hospital bed running out of intensive care units. Those are real problems. There's a real risks that we will face of the country again. I think people need to remember that this is a pandemic the likes of which we have not been in 100 years. Cases, they're still going up. We haven't reached our peak. And we all need to really take a step back and really think twice whether it's traveling to a friend's home whether it's traveling to a family some whether it's letting our guard down by not social distancing, not wearing masks because this could become a much bigger problem than it already is. And it's already a monumental challenge and final question for you to kind of end on a bit of a high note bit of a positive note the progress with vaccines, it seems like we're taking big steps forward on that front. What stands out to you about what we've learned when it comes to vaccines over the past couple of weeks. Ryan, the HVAC think story has been phenomenal. I agree with you. That is a superb sir. Probably high note. It's early to make any conclusive statements, of course, because the exact seems still have to move through the regulatory process at the Food and Drug Administration, But the preliminary results that was seeing From three different vaccine manufacturers more Dina Visor as well as AstraZeneca is that these vaccines appear to the 90% or more effective, That means they will inhibit disease. Symptomatic covered in 90% of the individuals who were vaccinated. That's a far higher success rate, for example, than the flu vaccine, which is already pretty good at around 60%. So that's phenomenal news. We're really encouraged by this. But we have to remember that vaccines are not right around the corner. First we have to build up the supplies. Back and the individuals were going to get back into their first are likely to be those health care workers and those front line workers. So what That really means is that for people like you and me rhyme we're not going to get vaccinated for another. The eight maybe even 12 months. And that's why it's very encouraging news. But we have to remain vigilant until then, and that means we have to stick with these non pharmaceutical intervention like social distancing. Like masks and like ventilation, Dr Ali Nori, president of the Federation of American Scientists, and part of the Pandemic Action Network, You can find out more about the organization at F A s dot or G'kar. Doctor Noori. Thank you so much for taking some time to talk to us about all of that, and we really appreciate your insight and expertise. It was a pleasure. Thank you, Ryan. All right. And finally, I'm joined by economics professor at Lansing Community College Gym, Luke to talk about whether or not supply chains are going to hold up during this current wave of the pandemic. Professor Luke Thank you so much for taking a few minutes to talk to us. And before we get into what's happening at some stores across the country right now, let's go back to the shortages that we saw in the spring in particular the toilet paper shortage Tell us what happened. They're well, what happened last spring? Was Was twofold. First off, you had a big shift. All of a sudden, you know, there was some panic buying, which is was there's an aspect of that. That's understandable because Virus is very scary Buying more stuff is something you could do, and it helps feel in control. Most of what happened last spring had to do with the fact that we bid at a big shift, where, instead of people spending Their day in institutions, meaning like schools, hospitals at work out, you know, out in the public where they were doing their business if you will. Um, using those facilities. They're now at home or larger portions of the murdered home. And as it turns out, and stuff like toilet paper and similar kinds of paper products, those air actually two very different supply channels. And oftentimes very different products. And the sudden switch. Caught the industry off guard and met. We needed a lot more home product and a whole lot less business Institutional school product. And it just it took some time to adjust. So what a lot of folks don't realize is that those products in particular They're so big. They're so bulky and So you're looking at your customers seeing there's a lot in the store, but there's not really what happens is it turns over very fast, and so if you're just a small surge in the buying and all of a sudden You get what I call the illusion of shortage, which is you're used to seeing this giant shelf. Full of stuff. Now you're seeing part of a big part of that shelf empty. What you're not realizing is that it's turning very fast. These companies the ones that produce toilet paper, They have a real good sense as to what the demand is going to be like on a consistent basis. So when there's a surge, like what we saw in the spring It's almost like trying to turn around a tanker. It takes a minute, right? Exactly exactly up. Yeah, especially for products like that. I mean, you know, the demand doesn't really change. We use a pretty much the same amount every day, at least when you start aggregating across large groups. Um To suddenly have one particular channel have a giant increase in usage, which was totally unpredictable at that time on D. I think that's a little bit different now. Um The companies were better are better prepared right now, But we're still seeing some shift right now. And that was gonna be my follow up question. I'm talking to Jim Luke, economics professor at Lansing Community College about the paper product supply chain, because I'm sure some people listening have been to the store and they're seeing the shelves start to empty out a bit. How concerned should we be that we'll see the same thing over the course of the next few weeks. I think what we're going to see is we're gonna see see a fair amount of again What I call the illusion of shortage We're going to see. Obviously, we're seeing a lot of large chain stores that are better prepared for it. They actually Increased there during the summer increases inventories at the major distribution centers. There'll be some You want to call it rationing?.

"And so I think, you know, looking at some of the literature that has looked at other, I think things that are more stigmatized. For example, I think would also benefit with regards to informing messaging for vaccines. Hmm. I wonder where the pre bunking actually inoculating people. Against the spread of misinformation about the virus is another approach. It is and it's one. I'm really interested in learning more about and trying. It's not been a focus of my research. But if you think back to the top of the show when Jason was talking about earlier research that's been discredited and actually avoided, saying the researchers name and avoided saying the misinformation about a link between a vaccine and a disease. That is one approach where you really just don't state the false information you don't draw attention to it. You don't give it credence. You're just better off staying in the fax. There's some really interesting research, and some of it's come from the climate change field where you can inoculate it's a It's a funny term to use when we're talking about vaccination is the metaphor is the vaccination metaphor. That if you give people ah, weakened version of the misinformation or the false argument and actually point out the ways in which it is incorrect, So what Logic flaw or, you know, persuasive technique is being used sandwich it with the correct information. So the formula sort of you may have heard X Y Z. That's cherry picking the evidence for the following reason. The correct information is this and the ideas if they get that kind of weakened version of the argument They are then resilient or resistant to it when they encounter it, quote unquote in the wild. The next time they see it on a website or a Facebook page, So there's interesting research on that persuasive from the climate change literature, people are starting to use it. In the vaccination space. There's a research group at Cambridge with Sandra Vanderlinden psychologist that I think is really promising. What about community leaders reportedly by we heard Dr Calgary talking about the role that must come play in providing a place for people to have vaccinations in place. Bangladesh But all this similar figures within communities in more secular societies. Absolutely, and I think in a lot of my global work, we have been able to identify a specific community leaders. To help communicate the more positive health behavior. I would like to say and again, I think this harkens back to a lot of the earlier work that was done by individuals that were working to change behaviors related to HIV and AIDS identifying community opinion leaders. Encouraging them and discussing with them. This is the correct behavior to help reduce the risk of exposure and then pretty much using those individuals to help you disseminate the message. I think that especially within the context of covert as you mentioned with this decrease in trust towards healthcare providers, I think it will be critically important to identify individuals that are not healthcare providers to really service spokespeople. Before we get on to the wider role of perhaps of politicians. What about the idea of just forcing people to take a vaccine, making it mandatory? Given that the disease poses a really quite a serious threat to public health? Alberto Gierbolini is a philosopher and bioethicist based Oxford University, and he believes there is a strong case for making vaccinations Mandate tree. In public health ethics any kind of public health issue. You often have to make a trade off between completely values. So on one side you have Personal autonomy, individual rights and on the other side, you have the collective interest in the public interest. Now have to strike. This balance depends a lot on how serious the situation the public health situation is. So the more serious it is, the more lies that would risk The stronger the case for infringing upon individual rights and individual liberties. One danger is that these policies might backfire in an important sense. We just don't like to do things just because they are orders to do things, But I think the best way off convincing people that the policy is good. It's safe. It's effective. It's in the collective interest is just to show that Through facts. So if ever mandatory vaccination policy, people will see that they will see that it works because vaccination policies when properly implemented, do work. If we seek RV that slowly, slowly disappearing and society coming back to normal, thanks to vaccines. I cannot think of a better way of showing people that That's the right policy. Off course you need some form of Coercion to begin with. But the negative feeling people have towards question would likely fade away over time as the benefits office kind of policy become clearer and clearer. So one of energy I often used in this case is that with suitable mandates when the seatbelt Mondays were introduced, many people were opposed to this kind of laws. For reasons that are not too different from the kinds of reasons why people these days opposed vaccination mandates because there are some rare cases in which it would be better if you didn't wear seat belts. They're very, very rare, but it happens. And the reason is that simple mandates were perceived as a very authoritarian position by the state and people thought that should be left free to decide what risks to take on themselves. But a few decades after that, Almost everyone today is very supportive of suitable mandates. And the reason is that we have seen with facts that thousands of lives have been saved. From car accident thanks to these mandates, and my guess is that with vaccination will be the same if we do it now, maybe 10 years when we will see the good effects of vaccination Monday's improve public health, less infectious diseases. People will probably surprised that we haven't made vaccination Mandatory before S Alberto Cipollini biophysicist based Oxford University. Jason right for is the example of seat belts useful doing I think it's a bit of a tricky metaphor for the current co vids situation, and that we've seen at least the United States lots of opposition to Something as simple as mask wearing, and I would have concerns about how well different populations would take to Ah, mandatory vaccine requirement. Although many places United States there are Close to mandatory or mandatory vaccines in terms of being able to have access to schools. You have to have a certain schedule of vaccines or Ah, doctors exemption, but I I would be worried about a strictly mandatory approach in terms of how well that would be received. Listen, but in time, what do you think? Yeah. Jason's points are excellent. I mean, I think in some ways the seatbelt metaphor is or this seatbelt legislation is closer to masking. I think people have a really different kind of mental model mental perception. When it's something you have to put in your body and mandates feel really different when it's something that's crossing the skin barrier. But it's mandatory in the U. S to have vaccines to go to school. So why not do it for adults and covert right? There are mandates and in all states, there are ways to exempt from those mandates. So parents who feel very strongly about not vaccinating their kid, you know, have a way either a medical exemption or nonmedical exemption to get around that the other place we have mandates in the U. S. Is for health care workers for the flu vaccine. Um And there's been, you know, lawsuits and litigation around that for healthcare providers who really don't want to vaccinate, but I think there's ah gray area where it is okay to think about Restricting access to certain services or locations conditional on.

Miami’s Jackson Health System will be among first to receive Pfizer coronavirus vaccine

"The us death toll from coronavirus has reached two hundred fifty thousand but we have a vaccine and two hospitals in south florida receiving it. I don't usually get the ever. Get the flu vaccine. But i would probably get this vaccine. This kobe thing is no joke. You seen kovin toes. Oh god oh no. Don't go there. it's so bad anyway. but this band name covert does have to be a punk band. Yes is vaccine. Will be available at miami's jackson memorial hospital and also Fort lauderdale's memorial regional medical center. And this is the chief of critical medicine at memorial.

Fresh update on "flu vaccine" discussed on BBC World Service

"Riker on some level in so much contemporary debate, But they are absolutely key to this conversation panel, a rolling up both their sleeves and preparing to discuss and interrogate wavering trust in science. Let's meet them. Daughter, Alison Button. Heim is scientific director of the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics at the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. Welcome to the real story, Dr Barton time. Did you know anyone who's vaccine hesitant? I do. I have studied vaccine acceptance and vaccine hesitancy for over a decade, And I think for that reason my friends and family are sometimes reluctant to admit to me that they are vaccine hesitant or don't vaccinate. Usually I hear that around the flu vaccine. People say they don't want to get the flu vaccine because it gives them the flu. But with this vaccine something I'm starting to hear. Maybe in September, October was I'm gonna wait for the European one. I heard that from some American friends, which I thought was really interesting in terms of trust in the American the U. S process, but also this idea that people would have to choose one of the vaccines once they were available, which I think introduces a very Interesting component to this choice will come back to that, for sure. Let's hear from our next Panelist Rupali Li Mei is associate scientist and the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the Departments of International Health, Epidemiology and Health Behavior in society. Welcome to the Real story Reporting live, I'd do You know anyone who's vaccine hesitant. Thank you so much for having me. Yes. So I have a bit more of a personal story when I gave birth about seven years ago, and we were vaccinating my son. Ah, colleague of mine decided not to vaccinate her child who was slightly older than my child against protest. Sis and the child ended up dying. And so that really hit home for me, and I've been studying behaviors in the number of different contacts for about 20 years, but I shifted my focus more towards vaccines. Once I became a parent So very close to home for me. Gosh, that is a shocking story. Let's hear from our third Panelist, Jason Rifle ER is professor of political science at the University of Extra here in England and co author of a 2014 report exploring varying approaches to increasing vaccine take up rates. Jason Rifle. Welcome to the real story. What about you? Do you know anyone who's vaccine hesitant? Like the other guests? I'm sure I know. People who are vaccine has a tent, but The fact that I study it tends to mean that people don't tell me very much but had a very vivid experience when my wife was pregnant with our first child, and we went to Go check out a particular midwife with one of her normal information sessions, and about half of the information session was from expectant parents, all asking about Vaccination and whether they could get safe vaccines and particular types of vaccines and whether they could get not. MMR is one shot but his three separate shots and is very clear that it was a very large And strong vaccine has a tent community. Yes, I I certainly remember that debate raging when my Children were born about a quarter of century goes so there we are. It's still there somewhere in the ether. Well, let's start by briefly establishing what we're talking about. Reporting tonight. There are three main vaccines that look set to be available for covered 19 fairly soon. Just remind us of the three main ones we're talking about. Yeah, So as of this week, three of the experimental vaccines have shown remarkable efficacy. So Fizer, Madonna, both of those vaccines appeared to protect Against symptomatic infection up to about 95% of the time and then the third product. AstraZeneca product indicates approximately 70% of efficacy, so we have some really great candidates that will hopefully be on the market soon. In the science behind Fizer. Madonna is different from the science behind AstraZeneca. Exactly. So the fighter and the journal Products are using an approach that uses messenger RNA or AM RNA And what this approach does is that the vaccine uses a genetic coding to make a piece of spike protein and then the immune system once that's introduced to your body sees it recognizes it as something foreign and then is prepared to attack it when an actual infection occurs. Versus the AstraZeneca product. There vaccine is something that is called a vector vaccine. So it uses a common cold called the Dean, a virus to carry the spike protein from the corona virus into cells. So two slightly different approaches, but very new with regards to the Fizer maternal approach. Okay, so that's the sort of the basis of the science of what may come into play very soon. There's lots of optimism around these three vaccines and around these three research projects Now I asked all of you a moment ago about your experience of vaccine hesitancy, But I'm wondering if it's possible to quantify how widespread these concerns are. And I'm gonna be really specific here. I'm not talking about hardcore anti vax is people who are really opposed to vaccinations. We will absolutely come back to talk about that later in the program, But I want to talk at the moment about people who are open to the idea of vaccinations. They've had them in the past, perhaps, but they're a little bit worried about anxious about something. That's a big new a bit different. I think, Alison, but in time you talked about this a little bit. Is it possible to quantify how many of these people there are? Sure, And there's been a lot of great survey work in the U. S. And globally on this from you know, early spring, it looks like right now about half of adults in the U. S, at least say they are likely to get the vaccine. This moves around a bit. But another 20 to 30% either say there may be unlikely. Or they might want to wait. Jason other similar sorts of figures for the UK The UK is is remarkably similar to the United States in terms of its overall expressed willingness to get vaccinated if we think about it less specifically about a covert vaccine and about a general vaccine hesitancy that his people are favorably predisposed to vaccines generally, but have specific concerns about side effects in general. The size of that the United States is about 30% and in the UK it's probably a little bit more. Maybe 30 to 50%, the hard core. Anti vaccination population that we see in our data is really rather small. It's probably under 5% in the United States. And even less than that in the UK in terms of people who just reject the idea of vaccines as a positive force for public health or being safe at all. Do you think Rupali was talking about that? The science behind these vaccines and the fact that we are in a science is new. Do you think that newness may worry some people I think that's probably one of the contributing factors, although it's not entirely clear how much people understand the differences across vaccine platforms and whether that's affecting Judgment or whether it's just the idea that it's a new vaccine across the board. Arson. But time there was back in 1952 in United States. Something called the Cutter incident in which some Children were given a polio vaccination on it ended up having live vaccine in the vial. Now, this was really an example of something that was really cutting edge. And following this, there was the introduction of much tougher regulations around the approval and production of vaccines, but but how damaging was that one incident more than half a century ago to public confidence? That's a great question. I think in the minds of public health researchers and historians, the cutter incident looms very, very large. We think about it and talk about it a lot. I don't know among parents of young Children right now, if that's something they could rattle off, But there is this more vague idea that there have been these incidents over time..

Colorado’s COVID-19 hospitalizations reach highest level since July

"Of people hospitalized with covert 19 in Colorado is now at its highest level since July. That follows the pattern of rising case numbers over the last four weeks. And is in line with what we're seeing around the country. On top of that. The CDC has revised its guidelines to acknowledge possible airborne transmission in indoor spaces, and the entire country is keeping a watch, of course on President Trump's Koven 19 battle. Let's get into it with Denver Health Infectious disease specialist Dr Connie Price on her live line. Good to have you again. Hello. Thanks for having me. So tell us your concern level. Of course, it's going to be 80 degrees all week long seventies over the weekend, But soon, you know, winter is right around the corner. What's your concern level about when we spend more time inside because of the cold weather outside. Well, we certainly have to pay more attention to the indoor environment the size of the room. The number of people at how well ventilated it is, it makes the risk of transmission higher. As says. Now the CDC and their revised guidelines on indoor space is impossible. Airborne transmission. Isn't that something we knew months ago. And why did the guidelines keep changing? I think it's always been clear that it's some form of respiratory transmission at some form of droplets, and whether it's a large droplet or a small droplets that remains offended in the air. Any large droplet has the potential to be broken down into the small, tiny droplets. So yes, I think we've always known about that potential. Ah, no, I think they're just highlighting some data around what we already think We knew in the beginning ofthe this anyway, Does it feel to you like Colorado zero Being the health protocols may be better than other states are with the masks and and Washington social distancing. Well, I think we are. We were one of the earliest states to be hit with coded 19, and we were able to get it into control well relatively quickly, and we've been able to keep our rates down to the point where we have Not overwhelmed our health care system. So I'm really proud of how we've done. But what are you seeing right now? An uptick over the past month or so. And And why do you think that is? Always been an up tick in the new diagnosis of cases in the outpatient setting, and just recently over the last week or so, we have seen that starting to hit the hospital now, not anywhere near what we were seeing at the peak of this At the peak of this, we had over 800 almost 900 Kate hospitalized cases in Colorado. Just put that in perspective. We're just over 200. Now. What's your feeling about testing in Colorado? Is it where it needs to be? And if not, when's it going to ramp up? Well, a supply chain has opened up quite a lot. It's still not perfect. I think all of us would test a lot more liberally. If we knew we had unlimited supplies coming in at any time, so That's no a little bit of a barrier but is way better. And it wasjust beginning with this doctor. We've seen what's happening in New York is school shut down in classrooms Go back online. What's Colorado, seeing as Faras School age infections of Corona virus go What we are seeing most of our infections in the younger kind of 20 year old age cohort. So the college age Ah, patients are coming in. But you know, younger school younger school age kids, particularly, you know, kindergarten first grade, really very few infections relative to what we see in adults. Well, that's positive news. But would you say that when you see this uptick over the last month or two that it's in all age groups? Well, it has trickled into other age groups, but still far and away. The most frequently diagnosed age cohort is in roughly the 20 year old 20 to 30 year old 20 to 40 year old age card. And before we run, What are the keys? Do you think to Colorado getting this pandemic under more controlled before there's a vaccine available? I think he's doing more of what we're doing. Continue our social distancing where math when, at least within 6 ft of others and in any indoor space. And, you know, just continue using good common sense. Um and I think we can get through this and given flu season's coming up. Make sure to get your flu vaccine because we don't wanna have a twin dem IQ with both flew and co bed going into the fall. Speaking of that, I don't know if you've seen flu cases yet, but certainly the smoke in the air are these things, mimicking the same symptoms that people would have from Kodai teen. And is that a probably Is that problematic for you? We haven't seen a lot of that, at least in our acute care settings with smoke. It may be more of an issue closer to the wild fires, but I think it's a little bit different. More of an irritated cough. I think with a bit of flu you do get you feel much sicker. You know you muscle aches and fatigue, which maybe you wouldn't get with the wildfires. Yeah, more symptomatic to the flu. It sounds like

"flu vaccine" Discussed on Mayo Clinic Q&A

"The flu vaccine does not protect you against coronavirus, but this year it's really important to get the flu vaccine because if you do get flu, it's going to be really hard to tell flu and cold but infection apart, so it's been to result in anxiety on your part. It's also going to result in Need for testing for both flew off. Influenza and potentially quarantine and inconvenience. So it's important that you do everything you can to stay healthy and not get the flu at all. How safe is the flu vaccine doctor? There's been questions like a flu vaccine is probably the vaccine that we have used the most off over the years because everyone needs to get vaccinated against the few empty. So this vaccine has a really good safety record. It is manufactured the same way each year. What changes is the vaccine the vaccine strains of the virus strings and the vaccine are changed but the manufacturing process is the same every year and because so many many millions of doses are used around the world. We have a good sense of any safety issues with it. It's not something that's using the select population where only a few doses are given you my name. Identify a safety problem. So I would say that the flu vaccine is very very safe. And it's rigorously vetted is that correct? Doctor all vaccines in the US are regular see that then it takes anywhere from in general six to eight years for a vaccine to come to Market because of the rigorous process that the vaccines are put through to ensure that they do what they're supposed to do which is protect you against the disease and also are safe don't have any other consequences Doctor Who should be getting the flu vaccine this year everybody over the age of six months should be getting the flu vaccine unless they have an energy to a component of the vaccine which is actually very very infrequent even egg allergies are no longer considered a contraindication to the banks. So really everybody the other question that comes up a lot is timing you need to get the flu vaccine. At least two weeks prior to the onset of flu activity in your region and that can vary from place to place in the midwest. Typically if you doesn't start till about the last week in December and then it can go through the end of March. So the vaccine takes about two weeks to induce an immune response. So you should get it two weeks before so by the first week of December or so. Is there ever a time that's too early to get the flu vaccine. So for most people know you can get it as soon the flu vaccine becomes available for immunosuppressive patients and the elderly sometimes the effect of the vaccine can Wayne in six months or so. So if you get it in August, you may not be protected. In fact, that's flu is still circulating. So there's a little bit of concerned about that. I would urge people to get it when it's available. Thank you Doctor, you know, there's a lot of information out there about the flu vaccine. And misinformation. What do you want to tell folks who hear conflicting information about flu vaccine safety? There are reports in the media about bad things happening after all that scenes and the flu isn't an exception to that. We give a thousands and thousands of doses of vaccine at our medical facility and have not encountered problems. There is a very very small chance that you can have when your logic problem called Guillain-Barre after the flu vaccine this was, you know, a problem with the 1976 flu vaccine and the flu vaccines always gotten a bad drafts. And then after that the incidence of the syndrome has been very low one in every a couple of million doses. The association is weak. And other than that there are no major side effects from the flu vaccine if there's anything else that you'd think like to tell us about the flu please dead. The flu virus is a virus that is constantly evolving. It's it goes through what are called mutations all the time. So between one year and the next the Palm Terrace undergoes changes and so that's why we need to give you a new vaccine every year every year. The flu vaccine has four different strains that are collected from all over the world. And we picked the ones we think are most likely to cause infection. Wonderful. That's great information. I want to thank you doctor sampathkumar from taking time from your visit to share your expertise. Thanks so much. Thanks to me. Oh Clinic infectious diseases specialist.

"The flu vaccine is a really valuable vaccine, but it doesn't prevent you from getting the flu 100% of the time. It's it's or depends on the season and if the first vaccines for Corona virus or similar. That would still be a huge public health. You know, accomplishment, but it wouldn't mean that no one got sick anymore. We'd still need treatments to save The lives of people we love from the worst ravages of this dizzy is so some epidemiologists said. You know, we're not going to land in Oz the day that the vaccine his is shown effective, it's going to be a process. So how do we get people to get a vaccine in this moment in time? Who can be the credible messenger here? No, The president recently said that you know, he expects a vaccine by November 3rd just after the election or just before the election, so that kind of rhetoric can sort of undermine the integrity of the process. People may think that it's being rightly or wrongly being rushed. And that's what scientists are working really hard to try to counter to basically build up this credibility that even though they're working at a record pace at astonishing speed, they are still checking all the boxes. They have the data to back it up that they are validating all the results and that what they're distributing is safe and beneficial. But that requires a lot of, you know transparency that requires a lot of public education, and that's kind of been a bit of a hurdle right now because one you have things moving so quickly that they're not necessarily being so forthright with the information that they have. We've seen some of these vaccine manufacturers, for instance, announced some of their latest fighting's through press releases. Rather than through, you know, peer reviewed papers or even through preliminary, non peer reviewed papers. And so it's been harder to scrutinize those results. And so that's something that could potentially undermining and the way you build that credibility is, of course, through transparency and through having good, solid public messaging that through nonpartisan means potentially type to illustrate the benefits of getting this vaccine and how it could help us return to normal. It is a process and this public acceptance aspect of it is not something that should be underplay. This is something that's really important to start tackling right now. Well, Caroline and who? Mayer? Thank you so much for taking this time And speaking with.

"That you know i would i be totally agree i think that there is there is there is no desire among people in the medical profession to avoid things that could could genuinely help and you know pull a lot about vaccines i think vaccines are important talk about here especially in terms of pandemic risks like like flu they're all flu vaccines available it is very hard to tailor them to a new strain that that that we've never seen before and that is rapidly spreading around the world which is why the the the ultimate goal of a vaccine research in terms of pandemic preparedness is creating a universal flu vaccine that is still a longtime away there are a lot of very clever people working on it right now but that is something that i think is is going to be an incredibly useful that would take off some of the most important pandemic risks off the table if it could be realistically achieved stature paul off at you co invented a vaccine i think it was the rotavirus vaccine so hyun hope that are a bit about this i mean i think about the flu vaccine in in terms of pandemic global pandemic the flu vaccine that's made now is is by growing viruses and chicken eggs right it's the same archaic method that's been used for for seventy years i mean doesn't that sort of process need to evolve in an innovate to to new age most finally i mean you know if there were a surge as add stated in his wonderful article that you need a lot of flu vaccine quickly there's one million based million seoulbased vaccine there's one recombinant dna base for but virtually all vaccine comes from relying on hens to lay eggs and that puts us at some risk so i think you're right we do need to evolve and you know you're always doing this on the fly with the flu pandemic and you know that there's going to be roughly three pandemics every century you know that and you just don't know win so you know you need to react quickly and well ed young i'll give you the last word here talking about pandemics and a global.

"To the flu vaccine nieto priestly i've been sorta in 5050 on whether you take a flu vaccine because it's not that effective might confers on protection lynn besides you know it's considered unpatriotic almost a form of treason to not sir as a a public health spokesperson as i am on the air uh to discourage people from getting the flu shot source said yeah you want to get it though k but i'm not a big advocate i hear some information that uh really uh chills my enthusiasm for the flu vaccine iit comes for an article uh recently which was reported on would show and and you've heard about it which suggests that um you don't have to sneeze or cough uh to transmit the flu virus so that that's really quite disconcerting because we tend to think okay you know cover your mouth uh you know sneeze eddie you're elbow and everything is going to be okay we'll let studied study of uh uh college students uh during their the flu season it was found that the flu virus was transmitted just by breathing it was very nicely uh put into the air stream by aero slows eishin tiny particles are works hail to the breath of these college students that could easily transmit the flu okay that study of made the rounds and uh i thought walesa interesting i reported on it but i didn't look at the study on now i have and there's an interesting corollary that study and that is that individuals who had had the flu shot in the courage and or previous seasons shed the flu virus six point three times more than if they hadn't had the flu shot so here's the the whole rationale for hitting the flu shot is okay you maybe you don't care whether you're gonna get the flu but at least protector others you know people in your family people her community they now mandate that health care workers so they can get fired if they don't to accept the flu.
