Good morning I'm Dennis Tito thanks for streaming lets us in today's update as second night of protests broke out at Minnesota after body camera footage released. In the deadly police shooting of Donte' right. Officials are calling it an accidental discharge the officer involved in the 26 year veteran in charge of training other officers. Q what Wright's family as saying this morning. And breaking news this CDC is recommending a pause in the use of the Johnson & Johnson Colvin nineteen vaccine here in the US. The agency says the recommendation comes out of an abundance of caution after you case is a blood clots in people who receive the vaccine. We have more on that and the new treatment raising hope for those already infected with open. And the prosecution is expected to rest their case in the trial of Derek show Wednesday. Yesterday George wasn't brother took the stand with an emotional testimony about the type of brother. George was. Cardiologists also testified that Floyd's heart stopped due to lack of oxygen it's not because of heart disease or drugs. We have the latest on what to expect as his offense starts calling witnesses. But we begin with that breaking news about the Johnson Johnson vaccine the CDC and FDA have released a statement. Calling for a pause on Johnson Johnson vaccinations after six reporting US cases of blood clots in vaccine recipients. In a pilgrim has the latest from Brooklyn good morning Eva. US government calling for a pause on the use of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine this after six people developed a rare disorder involving blood clots about two weeks after receiving the vaccine here's what we know about those six people they were all women between the ages of eighteen and 481 woman died. A second woman is in the hospital in Nebraska in critical condition about seven million people have gotten the J&J vaccine at this point although the number of these. Cases with this rare disorder are very small out of an abundance of caution the US government. Hitting paws on the use of the J&J vaccine. Diane all right he then in Brooklyn thanks for that. An earlier on GMA George Stephanopoulos talked to doctor hashish shot about the calls to pause the Jane Jane vaccine let's listen. Countries are let let me play devil's advocate here for a second safety first of course. But six cases out of seven million has an infinitesimal percentage. Is the FD overreacting here. Yes good morning doors sinks roaming and I think the FDA is getting it right and let me walk through it again you're absolutely right I believe that JNJ vaccine is exceedingly sage. These are very rare events. But we don't know if they're linked to the vaccine and we don't know if there are other cases out there that we've missed. And so leads to the right thing to take a policy brief pause kept gather some more data. Meal plan. And then come back to the market are no other people to be upset about this. This is how our system more fair moods were as we always err on the side of sixty I think this is the right way to go so what's gonna happen next. There what's gonna happen next is there's going to be a meeting of the advisory committee for the CVB for the CDC they're gonna review all the data. The FDA is going through data probably of all the folks who've gotten vaccinated what we know what we're tracking. And then based on that they're gonna fake and you set of recommendations and my senses are gonna underdogs. Think they may not only Maine make it you know more for certain types of people over others. To see but this is. I mean we mark but it data driven decision and this is Heidi to. We only know already that there are some people many people who are hasn't taken vaccines is is like to increase their hesitancy what's your message to them. Eight it might and there are people who are worried that this is an increased hesitancy my strategy on this is always been we should local the American people. We should share would of them that we have a system that is its. Very vigorous. Yeah I'm making sure that drugs and vaccines are safe and that's what is happening today we have a system that's work. And so I personally hope that this will build more confidence in the vaccines. That's I think what people should be focus on is a system that really works protects you and your overall message on the vaccines. I think the change a vaccine is both terrific and its efficacy and it is exceedingly safe. Based on everything I know I feel comfortable having my family get it and we'll see what the FDA and CD success. Our thanks to George and doctor job for that in cheerio.
