surrounding states >> jeff, the second biggest issue according to the same nbc exit apology is education. the that's high. the youngkin message has been clear. i believe parents should be in charge of their kids' education. in a debate as you well know terry mccauliffe said i don't think parents should be telling schools what they should speak. >> incredibly clunky and i don't know that youngkin is focus the as much on education as if you will, the critical theory in this pitch is race there is a good deal of culture laden on this issue. and a lot of it is clearly intended to appeal to the fears, resent mts of suburban voters, many of them white. >> jeff, virginia has been a bellwether for a long time what could a republican upset here mean for the mid-terms.

across america tonight, many school-age kids could be eligible for a covid vaccine as early as, well, the next few minutes. a cdc advisory panel voted unanimously to recommend a smaller dose of pfizer's vaccine for children aged 5 to 11. now it's up to the cdc director to sign off on the plan. and that could happen at any moment it's the final step before shots could be available to roughly 28 million children the white house says crews are working around the clock, packing up doses and printing labels the fed already shipping vaccines for children so they're ready to go. >> over the next couple days several million doses will start arriving at local pediatrician and family doctors's office. pharmacies, children hospitals, community health centers rural health clinics and other locations. this will give parents a broad range of options to get their
kids vaccinated. >> the shots will be available that much is clear but that won't be much help if hesitancy among parents remains high a recent study found only about one-third of parents with 5 to 11-year-olds say they'll get the kids vaccinated right away most say they're concerned about the vaccine safety and possible side effects cnbc meg tyrrell covers health and science for us break down the meeting from today. no major pushback or concerns? >> yeah, shep, the vote was overwhelmingly positive. aside from being unanimous, the committee members spent a large portion of the afternoon discussing how much each believed that kids should have access to the covid-19 vaccine sending benefits to protecting the kids themselves but also families and communities and helping things get back to norm. the cdc pointed out that while the disease is usually much less severe in kids than older people there have been more than 8,300
covid hospitalizations for kids 5 to 11. similar to normal flu seasons with a third of hospitalized kids going to the icu. and there have been at least 94 deaths from covid in the age group since the pandemic began or 66 in the last year more than three times the numbers once caused by diseases for which we now routinely vaccinate kids like roto virus and rubblea. that's not to say the committee didn't spend a lot of time on the side effects specifically myocardites, mainly in young men after the second dose we spoke about it with an advisory committee member just now after the vote. >> we do see vaccine associated myocardites in children tends to be mild short hospitalization and fax fast recovery. when you look at the risk and bifurcates we also know for children 5 to 11 we've reduce the dose >> now, experts say they expect
the lower dose and what's known about the condition more generally to make it even less common in younger kids after the vaccine. but the cdc also emphasized a strong safety system to monitor the risk as your younger kids the pfizer ceo told us today they expect clinical trial results for the kids down to age 2 and in the first few months of next yao yoor for those as young as six months nationally parents appear divided over vaccinating 5 to 11-year-olds, some are raring to go we heard of at least one system hartford health care planning to give the first vaccines tonight as soon as the cdc director signs off. >> we'll watch for that meg, thank you. 92% of all public workers in new york city are now vaccinated 92%. that's according to mayor de blasio and it's a big jump in the last two weeks. but many first responders are still refusing to comply with the city mandate data shows 85% of the police department in new york has received at least one dose
the fire department including ems still hovering at 81%. the head of a firefighters union says members need more time to get vaccinated but the mayor reaffirmed today he is sticking with the mandate. >> in the last 24 hour 2000 more city workers who had had been unvaccinated came forward, got vaccinated that number is going to keep going up it's prove burden of proof that vaccine mandates work. and this is how we move the city forward. >> that's new york in los angeles cops could soon face punishment for failing to report their vaccination status. lapd reports more than 1,300 members missed the deadline last month. the police chief in l.a. says those works will receive warning notices this week. according to city council rules, unvaccinated employees will be fired next month the trial of kyle rittenhouse began today in wisconsin. the 18-year-old accused of shooting and killing two people

of self-defense when he shot three men during protests and rioting in kenosha, wisconsin? that was the question at the center of his murder trial today as the prosecution and defense gave their opening statements. rittenhouse was 17 years old when he went to ken observer aire armed with an ar-15 unrest sweeping the city after police shot a black man named jacob blake. rittenhouse said he went there to protect property. his defense attorney contends protesters attacked ritten houses quoting like an animal in the streets. he argued rittenhouse was protecting himself and was justified when he opened fire be, killing two men and wounding a third. but prosecutors pointing out that rittenhouse was the only person to kill anybody during all of the chaos covering the trial in kenosha here is nbc's gabe futures. >> shep the prosecution said today that kyle ritten house instigated the confrontation

the national spotlight virginia has been reliably blue in recent years. president biden won the state by double digits one year ago but democratic candidate and former governor terry mccauliffe's lead in the the polls evaporated in the weeks leading up to election day earlier today mr. biden pushed back on the notion that virginia's election is a reflection of his own sagging approval rating. >> i have not seen any evidence that whether or not i am doing well or poorly, whether or not i've got my agenda passed or not, is going to have any real impact on win or losing. even if we passed my agenda i wouldn't claim we won because biden's agenda passed. >> even a republican has not won a statewide election in virginia since 2009 leasa lehrer with us now national political correspondent for "the new york times. whether youngkin wins or not this race is expected to be this close. does the campaign he ran offer a
playbook for other republicans to follow in '22. >> that's something that a lot of republicans are talking about right now. i think one area that they're really focused on is how youngkin has talked about schools. he sort of turned schools and what he has called parental rights into a catch-all for a number of conservative causes things like critical race theory not taut in virginia skoolgs opposition to vaccine mandates and maverick mandates in schools. transgender rights for students. that's something that's had a strong impact on building enthusiasm among republican voters the question that will start to get an answer to tonight is whether it's influenced the independent voters, the people who really vote the for joe biden, the suburban independents and really won a lot of the races for democrats during the trump years. so we don't know the impact the school argument has on them. but we'll get a set of good data on that tonight. >> to your point, do you see in your reporting an emphasize on
education continuing and spreading for the mid-terms and beyond >> yeah, i certainly think and highway hear from republican strategist, that this is an issue that they think could really help them make gains in the mid-terms. and they see it as a really fertile ground look, i think a lot of parents are frustrated with how the last year has gone in school. they -- what -- no matter what side of the sort of masking vaccine debate in terms of the students and schools they fall down on, i think there is a lot of people who are very concerned with how schooling is going right now. and so republicans see an opportunity to really capitalize on that frustration and anger with this argument >> lisa, in new jersey the governor race hasn't been nearly as close in the polls opinion the democrat phil murphy favored stay in power but if his margin isn't as wide as years past how concerned does your reporting democrats might be.
>> democrats are already concerned going into the mid-terms they know they are hurt by redirecting. knowing that history is not on their side the party in power tends to lose these mid-terms races. and, you know, the new president's second year. so they are they already know it's going to be tough i think what they're watching for in the races is how tough it will be. one area that democrats are focused on is the suburbs. even in new jersey whereas you point out the democrat is heavily favored to win, if the democratic margins in some of the swing suburban areas, the very areas helping them win back control of the house, helped them win the white house when trump was in power, if that margin and turnout level is lower that's i think setting off alrms, more alarms i should say in democratic circles. >> lisa from "the new york times" thank you. voters in minneapolis are deciding the fate of their police department. in the wake of george floyd's murder a year and a half ago minneapolis residents are deciding whether to abolish the city's police department
and replace it with a new public safety agency. of course minneapolis is where what they call the defund the police movement started. how is the turnout well the number of people voting early broke all records. nbc shakele brewsterer shaq. >> shep police remain open about another 90 minutes and we have seen a steady flow of people in the apology location in the park where more than a year ago you had a veal proof majority of the city council accelerate the process of getting the question to the vote resist and how they want the policing and the question shall the minneapolis city charter, the governing document of the city be amended so that the police department is replaced with a department of publicsafety, th text of that question says that could include police officers if necessary to fill the responsibilities that are then laid out
so that is the question that voters have been having to answer all throughout the day. and i'll tell you so many of them have told me how much they% struggled with this decision how they have studied it, talked to people gone to different forums across the city to get a handle on what they want to do with in public safety amendment. and, shep, you know, this is the result of a full scale campaign we saw croate across the city people door knocking making calls, advertisements on television and we're going into this night pretty blind. there hasn't been any tchgs or public polling i should say hasn't been much public polling since the month of september we really don't know the results of this ballot we don't know who is ahead and where it will land but i'll tell you it's something voters say they are taking seriously and anticipating the result of shep. >> shaquill brewster live in asmus. stay tuned analysis of the race especially from the state of virginia coming as you can see 13% of all precincts now reporting. the lead at this this moment you

>> because it's a small sample we can get people at the needed friendingcies and because the sample is fresh, and it's not, you know, a big series of tubes of blood that are sitting on a counter and exposed to temperature we don't suffer the rates of decay of key analytes that happen when you ship samples off to a central lab. >> the firm listening to that call invested more than $5 million. the devos family including the former education secretary betsy devos put in 100 million, convinced a representative of the family arm testified that the technology worked. when revelations emerged in 2015, including the fact that theranos was using third party equipment holmes again took her case to investors. this time on cnbc. >> this is what happens when you work to change things. and first they think you're crazy then they fight you.
and then all of a sudden you change the world. >> how did theranos allegedly fool so many smart people? prosecutors say it was fraud like this confidential angio genesis report shown to investors tp at the top the logo of theranos and pfizer except a pfizer scientist testified the company had nothing to do with the report, having already told holmes that pfizer wasn't interested in working with theranos that pfizer logo put up top without the company's permission >> and in case anyone thought that was a one-time thing jurors just saw another report, this one with the logo of the drug company sharing plow emblazoned on top as we watch elizabeth hoechls leaching the court going the other way for the day of testimony. that report according from a former sharing executive did not come with the company's permission there's been no indication, no evidence that elizabeth holmes was involved in any altering of documents herself. remember the defense says that
she never knowingly misled investors. >> scott live at the courthouse thanks. a 38-year-old man now faces multiple charges for throwing a molotov cocktail into a deli in new york city. the fire department released surveillance video and here it is here on the outside of that deli in brooklyn, you can see the suspect lighting a molotov cocktail cocktail and throwing it inside. when he tries to throw a second device somebody knocks it out of his hand that's when the suspect runs away here is what it looked like inside the deli. wow, you can see the back of the shop erupt in flames there employees at work had to run through the wall of fire to escape then they put out the flames, still burning outside from the molotov cocktail the suspect facing charges that include arson, assault, and criminal possession of a weapon we don't know whether he hired an attorney. nor do we know whether he will appear in court. out of order

four astronauts are being relieved of their duties this month. they're returning to earth on a spacex craft after seven months at the international space station. but on the trip they may not be able to relieve any duties at all. spacex reports the onboard toilet will be out of order. the reason, a tube could become unglued leak you aren everywhere as happened on another spacex flight back in september their fix, a special undergarment for waste management in other words, they're wear diapers. nasa didn't say how long the astronauts have to be in such a condition. the last dragon return ship took six hours. but the one before that took 19. a dangerous high-speed pursuit in southwest florida ended with a big splash authorities say 34-year-old brian gray stole a minivan there in lee county. a sheriff's chopper caught it on video. the guy loses control offer the
bridge there at the river. slams into the railing, sends sparks flying. then careens into the other side skids to a final stop there. but it doesn't end there the man gets out of the now totaled van, see him there climbs over the railing with police cars hot on his tail. and then. >> he is like trying to hop off the bridge right now. >> and he did. >> standing on the foot of the bridge and he just jumped off the bridge. >> a 55-foot jump into the river. even seems to do a flip there. look handing on his back at first the chopper loses sight of the guy and a chance for him really at escape but then a visual. his head bobbing just above the water. see it there he swims to a nearby concrete slab and moments later the inevitable a police boat pulse up fishing him out of the water officials saying on facebook while i may not have earned a gold medal more the high dive
gray did find himself in hot water when he earned pending charges of grand theft auto, fleeing a and eluding. a live look these are the results coming in from virginia's governor race 33% of all precincts reporting the race still too early to call according to the nbc news decision desk. loudoun county is a bell weather right now with more than 80% of the vote there terry mccauliffe leading glenn youngkin by five points, a number that will please the democrats. it's a dramatic gain for republicans there compared to 2020 president biden won the county by 25 points over president trump. election watchers still expecting a long night here. again, too early to call nearly an hour after the polls closed larry sabato university of virginia center for politics steve kornacki told us this would come down to the suburbings that look in loudoun
is a bad look. >> it's a bad look and being repeated in key suburbs and exurbs it's interesting in the rural localities at the they lost population but the percentage being given to youngkin is actually higher than many recent republicans who did not win stayedwide youngkin is doing very, very well so far. all the votes aren't in. in fact nothing approaching all the votes are in but you would rather sit with the republicans than with the democrats. >> yesterday your crystal ball larry moved lee from leans mccauliffe to leans youngkin what led your team to make that change >> we collect the data from all kinds of sources, including obviously those that are not connected to the campaign. so they're less biased we also do what we call an elite survey people hate elites but people are in pliks, particularly in public office
have a sixth sense about elections. and when i hear, for example, democratic officials state senators, others telling me that the republicans going to win, that kind of weighs heavily with me >> in the late going of this race, as mccauliffe's lead was evaporating, from the republican we were hearing about parents versus unions and schools, and about race does that seem to you to be something we'll hear a lot more about as we head toward the mid-terms? >> yes i think it will be somewhat refined from what has been determined here in virginia. there were some rough edges on both sides well the democrats didn't even really have a plan to refute the attacks on critical race theory and other items that were used to go after school policy. they clearly have to develop one quickly and use it, implement it for the republicans, i think they'll want to make certain
they refine it in a way that does not suggest that they are being racially insensitive, which some people certainly in minority communities did interpret their approach as being. >> larry sabato as always on nights like this thank you so much the question now, will whatever happens in virginia -- because it's way too early to call -- be a bellwether for the rest of the country as we move towards the 2022 mid-terms our election coverage continues across all the nbc news platforms, including nbcnews.com. follow all of the results as we get them, including a special meet the press team. kristin welker and chuck todd on nbc news now for all of us at cnbc thanks for for all of us at cnbc thanks for d 'll g us now ♪ ♪
