2:35 am
jillian: what do you know about the efficacy of vaccines, moderna and pfizer and even johnson & johnson when it comes to the epsilon variant? what you are hearing is the findings say that the vaccine wouldn't be as effective, do we know anything about that? that is a concern for a lot of people. >> we don't. there was another variant in peru, peru very and and researchers say it evaded immunity. turns out they were referring to the chinese vaccine. in the us we see slightly lower antibody levels in the laboratory but there is no clinical evidence yet of immunity. we don't see reinspections after covid 19, out of every infection which are very infections we've not seen reinspections. jillian: at the end of the day people would not be surprised if
