7:00 am
today will the u.s. put j.&j.'s vaccination back in rotation? that decision could come very soon. we'll take you inside how the key decision is about to be made. and the new but extremely rare case of the j&j case. we're live with a member of that advisory committee, a member that will be voting on the faith of that vaccine. also live at the white house, president biden speaking, the big names to watch out for. we have a lot to get to on this friday morning. heidi prezbola, also a profession of pediatrics. good morning to all of you. let me start with you give us a sense of what we expect to
7:01 am
happen an hour from now. >> the cdc is investigating another case of a woman that passed away after getting the vaccine. but we're told it is under way and no conclusions can be drawn until it is ccompleted. all indications was that they would recommend lifting that pause given that this period has been a wait and see period. they say we have waiting and we have not seen a crush of additional indications demonstrating this condition, this rare blood clotting condition combined with low platelets. this is important for vaccine confidence given the pause went on longer than what they terribly anticipated. most public health officials are saying that the evidence is
7:02 am
showing the benefits of taking this vaccine far outweigh the risks. this was a vaccine of choice for so many critical populations including the homeless, young people, students, individual that's may be harder to track. there will be a lot of pressure if this advisor panel recommends reinstating this to get it back on the shelves pretty expeditiously. >> in't to start on the new oregon case. we still don't know if that death is connected to the vaccine. it would be exceedingly rare. what questions do you have about this. >> it is certainly tragic that that happened. but we expect that there are going to be some cases relating to potentially relating to the administration of the vaccine.
7:03 am
but at this point the benefits seem to outweigh that and the decision that we need to do is look more closely at all of the information for all of the cases and see if there is a specific pattern. that will be presented and the expert liasons this afternoon. >> there was a postponement of the decision this week. what is your level of confidence that you will vote and make a recommendation on this today. >> i'm very confident. it's very impressive how the system works. the vaccine safety surveillance of the country. this was picked up through the adverse event reporting system, and that detected a signal and that required, it didn't say cause and effect, what it said is that it required a full
7:04 am
investigation. so honestly in a matter of days the meeting was held within 24 to 48 hours, and now this second meeting is measured in days later. it's very important to make a decision in the next steps with the j&j vaccine. >> i know you have not been given the options you're voting on yet, but your expectation is that they will approve it as it, approve it with a warning level, delay the decision to get more information and time, or to take away all of it in time. based on what you have seen we
7:05 am
need as many people vaccinated as possible. the j&j vaccine is safe and effective. it can only be given or maintained with refrigeration. we can reach hard to reach populations and the more people that get vaccinated the better. we need 80% of the population to be vaccinated for herd immunity. and the johnson and johnson vaccine can help in that request. we also know that the rare events are just that and they have not occurred with the other two covid vaccines that are
7:06 am
licensed for emergency use in the u.s. >> i want to turn to my college on the issue of vaccinations. last question to you, can you give us a sense on the timing and logistics on this. if you decide to recommend the vaccines today, how long will it take to see shots in arms we start again? >> immediately, or shortly. i would think that it would be able to be published and i would think that it could start even this weekend, absolutely. >> so a matter of hours, not days? >> absolutely. >> right away. >> all right, thank you so much for your perspective. i know you have a very busy morning ahead of you. as he was talking about, the
7:07 am
issue of shots into arms is essential to hit that herd immunity. you have more eligibility, but not as much demand as there used to be, right? >> good to be with you. there is so much hanging in the balance when it comes to public confidence. there is two nonprofit health care systems down here. broward and jackson health. jackson health is going to be stopping their first dose administrations as well. they're both desaying declining demand is part of the reason why. but still the point is the same. i would like to also highlight one other thing. in florida where i am, vaccination rates are pretty solid. if you compare that to some of
7:08 am
the other sour states florida is doing better. those are national laiders, but in florida we're going okay. they opened up eligibility, a lot of low hanging fruit has been achieved. now public health officials are saying now this is not over. just in the last two weeks in florida, here are the warnings going out. >> we're currently in the middle of the surge in south florida. the only way out of that is by getting everybody vaccinated. we need to reach herd immunity. >> the younger people we think that we have a better immune system so we don't need to get vaccinated, but that is not the
7:09 am
case for your other family members. we have been seeing a younger demographic getting infected. that is something to keep an eye on for sure. >> you're right about that thank you. i want to give our thanks to dr. henry bernstein as well. we will talk to dr. anthony fauci. the u.s. will enter a series of partnerships. he is talking about a partnership with sweden and india to take on industry and a worship with the uae to decarbon ize agriculture.
7:10 am
>> i'm very hartenned by the call to collaborate and advance carbon dioxide removal. >> today's news comes after the president unveiled that international climate finance plan to mobilize money in the government and private capital to help countries cut back on greenhouse gas emissions. i want to bring in monica alba. this has been a real focus in the last 48 hours or so. talk about how this new international finance ban is being received by those just looking at the price tag. >> yeah, and the really really made his headlines in his remarks. this is american returning to the table when it comes to combatting the climate crisis
7:11 am
into he is trying to mobilize this opportunity and that's the context with which the international partners have also entered into this agreement. this is a lot of as per rational goals and ideals. so there is a lot of questions about how this will work. there is a lot of markers laid out, but it is unclear how they will come to be reality. what was really notable here, hallie is the president took the opportunity to tout his own infrastructure and jobs plan and bill. he says the opportunities have passed and it could dovetail. he talked about electric vehicles. more charging stations, free ways, revitalizing the grid. so he took the moment to focus on his domestic priorities and
7:12 am
talking to world lead herbs to push them to make similar commitments. it was notable that he did applaud president putin of russia on what he committed to do when it comes to carbon dioxide removal. >> you mentioned the pst's domestic priorities. let me draw that out here, there is new reporting that the president is expected to propose new taxes on the rich. what else can you tell us about some of those details? >> so the white house doesn't want to get ahead of the joint address to congress where we expect to hear him talk about how to pay for it. and this is more about what the white house is calling human infrastructure.
7:13 am
things like kield care. all of these mmts that are part of the first fade of it. this is a different phrase. so what is notable here is they're saying we want to put these two things together. but it is not clear yet on the payment that's this would likely involve raising taxes on the wealthiest americans. >> monica alba, live outside of the white house, thank you. breaking overnight, a panel recommending taking sexual assault investigations out of commanders hands. we are live with a retired navy captain that testified in front of congress about this and what she thinks.
7:14 am
plus, we're going to columbus with what one family wants now. and candid reactions from hbcu students about the future of policing. >> putting pressure on what is happening happening to make sure the right thing happens. . happens.

. in columbus, ohio, as the investigation into the deadly police shooting of makhia bryant moves forward. she is the 34th person to be shot and killed by local law enforcement in columbus in the last six year. 23 were plaque, seven were teenagers. those leading the investigation promise to be fair and
7:19 am
transparent. but they say it is so soon to decide if the actions were justified. >> you have to wait and look at all of the facts. half of the facts lead to half truths. >> we're inside of police headquarters. is there any word on what investigators have been looking at so far or who they have been talking to? >> good morning, i want to note first off that body cam video, the audio of the 911 calls were were all released within 14 hours of the incident. we're in the very early teenages. the video and the audio recalled what happened. they lunged after two smart
7:20 am
females. as we look at the investigation they will be interviewing the officer, but the attorney general saying even though this is a terrible tragedy, he said they can take about 400 hours of questioning and evidence in looking over the evidence, so in combination of those body cam videos they will be talking to those people involved. still a family of me -- >> it is unbelievable, it's heartbreaking, and i can't even, she must have been scared. something was wrong with that picture. >> her mother maintaining that she thinks her daughter was defending herself. there is also questioning about
7:21 am
whether or not the officer could have used other deescalation tactics. we reached out to see where in the body the shots fired hit, but they said it could take up to four months, halli snerks. >> laura barrett, live for us there in columbus. derek chauvin waits now to be sentenced for the murder of george floyd. some hope that the country may take this opportunity to produce real change for social justice. she we are joined now live from atlanta university center. you covered a lot of ground with these students, tell us more about it. you know these students are hopeful but only call your attentionly so. so we heard a lot of reaction to the derek chauvin trial this week, but two things stuck out to me.
7:22 am
this was a defining moment, the protests that many of them took part in. it has ticken up a lot of ground. the other thing is they they are really a coming of asian they are based on the deaths of michael brown, just kind of playing out as they were becoming tarms and going through adolescence. they say it has had a big impact on them. >> how many of you were surprised by the verdict? so all of you were surprised in some way? how many of you were relieved. >> it is hard for us to say that i feel relieved because then i have to gear up for something else that i have to champion.
7:23 am
>> when our professor said guilty, there was like a weird backlash and reaction from some people, some political figures, some people in the news, and that celebration kind of getting es dampled a little when you realize work work there still is to be defense attorney. >> you were all 11, 12, and 13 when trayvon martin was killed. how much do you feel like this is a constant presence in your life? >> it's draining because we're seeing it. >> if it wasn't for the deaths of tray trey von martin, i would not have been as passionate
7:24 am
about social social justice and social chapgs. >> so it started in middle school? >> yes, it slowly planted a seed. i didn't know i could make a career out of being about activist. >> do you have hope that it will bring babt change in vote? >> we have to keep some form of hope. we have to allow this to talk us to the next direction. i'm ready to leave this moment for a new chapter. >> it was a wide ranging conversation with these four students. what also stuck out to me is they all say as they get ready to go out into the world, three are graduating seniors, they say this will impact his path going forward. one says he wants to go into politics and push through policy for things like this. another wants to be a filmmaker, can and they say it will be a profound impact on how they live
7:25 am
their lives as well. >> blaine, thank you so much. really appreciate it. coming up after the break, a former olympic track and field star making a different kind of run. this time for governor. the newest candidate that just announced her campaign in the california recall election. we'll have that after the break. later, climate migrants. how some are trying to get ahead of extreme weather. the cities that could see the biggest population changes as the climate change is coming up. the climate change is coming up. what happens when we welcome change? we can make emergency medicine possible at 40,000 feet. instead of burning our past for power, we can harness the energy of the tiny electron. we can create new ways to connect.

7:29 am
so potentially big news this morning, the pentagon is reportedly one step closer to how it handles military sexual assault cases. they are recommending decisions on prosecuting service members no longer being made by commanders. instead calling for the decisions to be made by independent authorities. the panel's recommendation is one of several now in the hands of lloyd austin. i want to bring in a retired navy captain. she also testified before congress on sexual assault in
7:30 am
the military. thank you for being on for this topic. >> good morning, i'm glad to be here. >> so for years as you know military leaders, the push back has been that this hurts the change of command, what would this mean for people in your former role? >> it would mean being relieved in a good of decisions that we're not really capable of making any more than we would have been capable for makes decisions on medical treatments. these kinds of decisions affect people's lives and they need to be made by people who have the current training to do it and i'm very happy to hear that the independent review commission has made this recommendation. >> the ap noted that reports of
7:31 am
sexual assault in the military are increasing. up 3% in 2019, but there is also people that don't report. the annual defense department sir vie found that more than 20,000 service members said they experienced some kind of sexual assault and only a third of them filed a former report. what's your understanding of the discrepancies? >> people are afraid of retaliation. the same people that are writing their performance evaluations to determine the jobs they get, that determine if they can go on leave to go home for family holidays, it's the same people that they are putting on report so to speak. and there are conflicts there. and people are afraid of resaluation and affects on their career and rightly so.
7:32 am
the panels other recommendations include improvements for allowing victims to get protective orders. that there should be a set time line. are you satisfied with these recommendations? do you think this all, taken as a whole, does enough to address the issues? >> it's a good start. i'm happy they made these recommendations. but none of these things in and of itself stops the problem. that requires a very deep change. it also affects the military code of justice and so far congress avoided taking this step, and i hope that they will finally come around here and see why it is so necessary. >>. >> thank you for your expertise on the show today. we're going to keep an eye on
7:33 am
that. we're also keeping an eye on political news coming into us from the west coast. kaitlyn jenner is becoming the latest candidate for governor there. she is out with a campaign site this morning saying she is in, saying that california, in her view, has been reduced by one party rule that reduces politics over progress. signatures and so on. this is getting a lot of attention here for people that want to give governor new some out. they could she is now joining it is including kevin falkner. and it does bring up a lot of memories from the 2003 recall
7:34 am
that brought up another celebrity, which was arnold swaths anythinger. i think a lot of people are drawing comparisons, i think there is two very big differences between now and then. number one has to do with the political identity that kaitlyn jenner has. this time ampd, they have another political experience. so for gavin newsom to be recalled, it will take a bhig
7:35 am
effort to he port a lot. and it is a very blue california, as you described? >> yeah, you want as much help as you can always have from political seasons hands. one of the arguments is that the entire recall election is being sponsored by trump republicans and those that want to oust newsom not in an election year, but a year before. i think it could fit into that argument that this is the actions by trump republicans that want to overturn the election results from back in 2018. >> mark murray, thank you for that, appreciate your perspective and your analysis

7:51 am
feeling the affects of the climate crisis and extreme weather. not just in places like south asia but right in our own backyard. they are climate migrants, people displaced by rising sea levels, natural disasters. more than 140 million people in some of the hardest hit areas of the world will be forced to move by 2050. in this country, some americans have been forced to leave their homes. for example, i talked to maria who left puerto rico in 2017 after the hurricane. she left the island and found her way to one of the potential climate havens as they are called. buffalo, new york. a hurricane hit. you lost your home. you had to move to a new place. what was that like for you? >> it's bad. it's different because the beach is not the same. i miss some part of puerto rico.
7:52 am
>> do you think you will stay in buffalo for a while? >> yes. >> others are seeing the writing on the wall where they live and getting out before it's too late. cities like asheville, north carolina, are starting to get ready for them. >> look at that. >> the booths love living in asheville for the art scene, the breweries and the location. very different than the last home on the coast of georgia. >> we started seeing the writing on the wall, it was time to probably move on. >> that's because melissa had been noticing more extreme weather, stronger hurricanes and sea level rise. was climate change the only reason you decided to move? >> it was the biggest reason. >> why did you decide to move specifically here to asheville? >> there's plenty of fresh water here. there always will be. there's also no hurricanes, no big tornadoes, no violent weather patterns. >> asheville is not immune to climate change. but experts say partly because
7:53 am
of where it sits, high up here in the blue ridge mountains, it doesn't have as many weather extremes. asheville is not alone. nearly 5 million people have been displaced from their homes in the past five years because of natural disasters triggered by the climate crisis. whether people are forced to leave or choose to, where they might go? the answer is in and up. to havens away from the coast and the heat. think toledo, madison or buffalo. >> the cities prepare to on board climate migrants, they need a variety of investments in affordable housing and transportation and economic development. >> that's another challenge. more people will mean more infrastructure needs. for the asheville mayor, more of a reckoning over climate gentrification. >> are we preserving the community for the people that live here? are we creating a community for people that are going to move here?
7:54 am
