7:14 pm
occasion, but when you have older individuals, people who are vulnerable, i think you need to figure out how to protect them in 2021, the risk will start to recede hopefully we'll have a vaccine for vulnerable populations, and we can look to happier days, but these will be tough months for us. >> you mentioned a vaccine hopefully. there's so much talk, that it's just going to happen by the third quarter of next year there's a vaccine can you handicap whether that's a real thing or not? >> if people are optimistic i'm on board of pfizer, one of the companies doing a large-scale trial. remember, even if these trials are successful, the first tranche of patients who get that
7:15 pm
vaccine will not have protective immunity into to 2021 it probably will be february or march before the full benefit of the vaccine. even when the applications get filed in december, if the trials are successful it takes two to four weeks to vaccine, it will take a month to vaccinate the initial population then you have to wait about three to four weeks to get a second shot. not everyone will get that exactly on time. so you're putting the schedule towards february or march when people will have the ful benefit of the vaccine, even if it's on schedule and things go right. >> you wrote appear op-ed you referenced briefly, but getting treatments to people who need them, but obstacles that stand in the way. >> these are the antibody drugs.
7:16 pm
we always thought a bridge to a vaccine could be these antibody drugses, the drugs that governor chris christie and the president receive. they basically give you an immune system in a bottle i think they should be authorityized in a matter of weeks, but right now the system the federal government has designed to distribute the drugs envisions infusing them in emergency rooms. these need to be given to people who aren't very sick, but there are people who are at risk of having a bad outcome it's going to be hard those individuals to come into a busy emergency room and sit for a three-hour infusion, so i think the government has to think about a home-based service the other things is you have to get the people to the hospital someone will have to drive them
7:17 pm
to the hospital. >> it's a complicated world. thank you so much, dr. gottlieb. we're dealing with covid in so many different parts of life. >> the teachers are responding it's been good everybody is trying. battling a pandemic and the destruction left behind from a hurricane. we're on the ground. from chef to carpenter. >> it just makes sense for me to survive. the shift in careers that covid is forcing many americans to make. and about 30 million americans have already voted, but when will those ballots be counted? >> announcer: the facts, the truth, the "the news with shepard smith", back in 60 seconds. how can i become a congresswoman? what do i need to study to become a senator? could i change things more at the state level or the federal level? do i have to be mayor before i become governor?
