tv   CNN Newsroom With Fredricka Whitfield  CNN  June 18, 2022 10:00am-11:00am PDT

10:00 am
10:01 am
hello again, everyone, thank you so much for joining me, i'm fredricka whitfield. at any moment, the cdc's vaccine advisers will announce their decision on covid-19 vaccines for children, 6 months to 5 years old. pfizer and moderna are seeking authorization for their vaccines. if approved young children could begin beginning vaccinated as soon as next week. are we hearing anything more about how close they're getting? >> reporter: they are getting closer. they have been taking questions for an hour, and it sounds like several more questions came up. they were supposed to vote a half hour ago but they're going to take as many questions and time as need be to get through everything. after two and a half years of all of us dealing with covid, this is the last sort of big piece, you know, the last tool in the tool box to get all americans covered by vaccines and hopefully sort of squelch
10:02 am
this pandemic to something near an end. several questions that they have been centering on and discussed is that the effectiveness of getting vaccinated is much greater at preventing severe illness in children. they don't have a con of data. these are sort of the general themes that they've been discussing today that getting vaccinated is better than relying on your child had a previous infection, vaccination is still better. the side effects, while there are some just like we all had when we got our vaccines, they are manageable, and then they're going through a lot of the practicality of actually getting all of those shots out there, getting the information out there to all of the walgreens and the pharmacies, and the doctors and everybody because these are different. you know, there's a different regime, it's different amounts of the actual vaccine that goes into these little arms. two different vaccines we're talking about, moderna and
10:03 am
pfizer. moderna slightly different regimes. moderna is a two-shot sequence over several weeks. pfizer is a three-shot sequence over several weeks. this covers about 20 million americans or so. with understand they take that vote seemingly in the next 15, 20 minutes, they're going to start moving toward that vote. it will go to the cdc director who has to approve it. she is expected to do that and in cities like new york, already lining up, a lot of those doses are already going out. they expect to start putting them into arms next week. back to you. >> all right. miguel marquez. thank you so much. let's talk more about all of this. dr. jennifer shoe is with us, a pediatrician and edited the book "bake and child health" for the american academy of pediatrics. doctor, so good to see you. welcome. >> thank you so much for having me. >> all right. so let me get your reaction. are you anticipating that an approval will come today from the cdc? >> yeah, i have been listening to the webinar, the live stream
10:04 am
that they have been giving and it does sound like they are leaning towards also approved it. in addition to all the rest of the age groups. i'm hopeful that vote will come very soon and the cdc director will also make the recommendation to give a vaccine in young children. >> the white house is hoping to have these vaccines available as early as next week. do you see that as realistic? >> i sure hope so. the families in my practice are very eager to start making those appointments so their kids can get vaccinated. our state was told to expect the delivery to happen on monday. so that's two days from now. so really hoping that's still going to be in place. >> so how difficult might it be for parents who do want to get vaccines. if indeed it's approved, and you know, there might be some doctors' offices, i guess, and hospitals that would get it right away or do you feel like there would be quite the wait for families who may want it as
10:05 am
early as next week. >> i think it remains to be seen. i'm really hopeful that distribution would be good. this is the last age group waiting to be vaccinated. so there's already a track record of delivering vaccines to practices, to pharmacies t, to hospitals. i think the challenge in this age group, some places may not feel as comfortable vaccinating smaller children. they may not have the equipment orset up to do that. from that perspective, there may be limitations on where children can get the vaccine. >> children 5 to 11 were the previous group to become eligible for the vaccines in november. only about 29% of those children are fully vaccinated. the percentage of vaccinations goes down among younger children. are you worried that parents are taking too much of a wait and see approach? >> i think it's a little bit
10:06 am
tough because we've been seeing that this variant may not be quite as severe in children than the other variants, but what we do know is at the peak of omicron in january, the bulk of hospitalizations in children was in kids under the age of 4, and 1/4 of those hospitalized children ended up needing to be in the icu. so this age group is something that we really need to take seriously, even if the older age group was not vaccinated in the numbers we were hoping. >> what do you say or what will you be saying to parents of your little patients who might be still a bit reticent and worried about their 6-month-old, 8-month-old, and that age group, they would be getting their shot in the thighs, isn't it usually where it goes when they're that small. what will you say to them if they're hesitant about a covid vaccine where they may have welcomed all the other shots they got, you know, in the early stages of their lives?
10:07 am
>> so just like any other vaccine that we give in early childhood, this vaccine would prevent serious complications in this young age group whose immune systems may not be as strong as older children. under the age of 5, many of these kids who are particularly below age 2 can't even wear a mask. any layer of protection we give them is going to be extremely helpful in preventing covid, and getting the vaccine is the best way of preventing serious illness, hospitalization, and even death in children, and we know that since the pandemic started, 442 kids under the age of 5 have died from covid, unfortunately, and so this is another step in the right direction of preventing these deaths and serious illness. >> many of the country's leading health experts are warning of another potential covid surge later on this year with kids out of school for the summer break, with cases relatively low right
10:08 am
now, is it your feeling that now is the best time to get vaccinated ahead of returning back to school in august in some places, september in others? >> and that's an excellent point, you want to get vaccinated before you become exposed to the virus, right, to the infection. so in anticipation of kids going back to school, and mixing germs, now would be the time to do it because it does take several weeks for the immunity to kick in fully. >> dr. jennifer shu, so good to see you. thank you so much. >> thank you for having me. straight ahead, new revelations from uvalde, texas, as the investigation into what unfolded at robb elementary continues. what cnn has just learned about the scene from a neighboring county sheriff. plus, catastrophic flooding in and around yellowstone national park has forced many people to cancel their summer visits. a local business owners joins me live next. black wall street. it was a sight to be seen.

10:13 am
welcome back, new revelations now about last month's mass shooting at robb elementary school in uvalde, texas. "the new york times" is reporting that an officer armed with an ar-15 had the opportunity to shoot the gunman as he approached the school but didn't take the shot. an ar-15 was the same type of weapon the 18-year-old gunman used to kill 19 children and 2 teachers. here's more now from the reporter who broke that story speaking last night to cnn's anderson cooper. >> this is a situation where officers were arriving really minutes after the first 911 call came in of a gunman at the school, and a lot of focus on the investigation into the police response is what happened in the school, and why it took so long for the officers to go in the school and confront and kill the gunman. what it turns out happened outside the school before the gunman even went in was that one of the uvalde police officers
10:14 am
who arrived actually had an opportunity to take a shot at this gunman and what he told a deputy sheriff from a neighboring county who i spoke to was that they were under fire at that time and he passed up the opportunity to take that shot because he feared that shot might go awry and hit one of the children that he said he could see behind the gunman, and so in that split second moment where he made that decision and hesitated, the gunman went inside the school. >> a texas house committee investigating the shooting continues to talk to first responders to sort out exactly what happened at that school, amid criticism of the police response. we're learning new details about who will testify before the house, the texas house committee investigating the uvalde, shooting. the panel announced friday that the uvalde police department will voluntarily speak with them next week saying it took a little bit longer than
10:15 am
originally expectedment cnn's rosa flores is following this story for us from houston. rosa, do we know whether the uvalde police chief will testify monday? >> you know, fred, we don't know if the chief will testify. like you said, the committee chair on thursday said that they were still working on uvalde pd, that they were still a question mark if they would testify voluntarily, now, this texas house investigative committee does have subpoena power, so whether some of these individuals want to provide their testimony voluntarily or not, then we'll determine if this committee issues subpoenas. it's also unclear if the school police chief, pete arredondo will be testifying. i've not received the witness list for monday's testimony yet. i'm expecting that on monday morning. that is the other big question. will the police chief from the school district testify voluntarily, and again, this
10:16 am
committee has subpoena power, so they could -- if he is not compelled to do so voluntarily, they could issue a subpoena. monday is the fourth day of testimony that the texas house investigative committee receives. now all of the testimony is behind closed doors in executive session. we don't know the content of the testimony. i've been at every single hearing and i can tell you that none of the individuals who have testified, whether it's texas dps, members of the school district police department or other individuals have not said anything as they exit except for a fourth grade teacher and here's what she had to say briefly, take a listen. >> i'm just concerned for my family and my kids. >> reporter: now, on monday is the next hearing. i do not have a witness list,
10:17 am
fred, yet, but as you said, we are expecting for uvalde pd to testify voluntarily. fred. >> rosa flores in houston, thank you so much. all right, coming up, stunning scenes from yellowstone national park, flood waters so fierce they have changed the landscape. how did this happen? live to the cnn weather center next. t with merrill. moving his money into his investment account in real time and thatat's... how yoyou collect coins. your money never stops wororkig for you with merrill, a bank of america company. at mint mobile, we like to do the opposite of what big wireless does. they charge you a lot, we charge u a little. they put their names on arenas, we put ours on mlower back. so naturally whenhey announced they wou be raising their prices due to inflation, we decided to deflate our prices, due to not hating you. and if this were one of their ads, they would end it here with a "happy customer".

10:22 am
yellowstone national park in montana could also lead to more snow melt and runoff in areas already flooded. i mean, water levels peaking sunday into monday. officials closed all five park entrances as heavy rain and melting snow washed out roads and damaged bridges. i mean, the pictures are simply extraordinary. meteorologist allison chinchar is live from the cnn weather center. it's hard to believe what we're seeing. this ravaging river has decimated and changed the entire landscape of so many areas there. how does this happen? >> reporter: so many areas. it's not just one spot. this was widespread damage throughout the park, so it's not easy to fix when you have so many locations that you have to attend to. look at this, you can see this one road broken up or washed out in numerous areas. it's not just one part that they have to fix. they have to fix several spots to even make it usable. another area, this is a bridge where you can see it washed out
10:23 am
effectively splitting the river, going to the right where it's supposed to go, and the other going basically down the main street to the town, flowing on to streets, homes, businesses where the water is not intended to go. you have the clean up from that. you have to wait for the water to recede and come back down. it was a tremendous amount of water. on june 13th, they picked up 2.18 inches of rain in west yellowstone. that's basically what they would get in the entire month of june getting it just in 24 hours. they have the excessive heat melting snow pack. it's the combination of all of those events. with that said, as quickly as the water rises, it comes back down. the river gauges along the yellowstone river have come below flood stage. not just at one location, but multiple. this is the yellow snow river at billings, peaking out at 16 1/2 feet. that's an entire foot above major flood stage. we are currently sitting around that 10 foot mark now. we do expect it to get around
10:24 am
11 1/2, maybe as much as 12 feet in the coming days, as more rain is expected, not necessarily into flood stage, and that's good news, but you've also got the snow pack. look at all of these areas where you see pink and purple. that's snow that's on the ground, that has the potential to melt. temperatures in this area are expected to get into the 70s told which in turn will melt some of the snow that's already there. in addition to that, we are expecting rain, albeit very light. most of these areas expecting at the absolute most about 1 inch. most areas likely less than a half of an inch. but again, it's the cumulative effect. when you put all of that stuff together, it triggers all of that melting, and all of that runoff for these areas. one thing to note, we do expect the temperatures to finally start to come back down. not being nearly as warm in this area, so for gardener, for example, highs tomorrow in the mid-60s and by monday, highs in the low 50s. that's good. again, it's the clean up phase, yes, the weather is improving.
10:25 am
it's going to take a long time for them to clean up a lot of these areas. >> i mean, a long time. that is just devastating, trying to rebuild those roads. i mean, that's just not going to happen. that's the nonengineer in me speaking. it just seems like a colossal task to recover. allison chinchar, thank you so much. i want to bring in now sean dar for more on the community impact. she's the owner of little trail creek cabins, a vacation rental located north of the park. so good to see you. oh, my gosh, these pictures are extraordinary, you are living it. what does this mean for all of your bookings? what has happened for all the people who said they wanted to stay in your cabin for any number of weeks this summer, what's happened now? >> fred, i'll tell you, they are just calling left and right. it's impossible to even keep up with the volume of cancellations that we've had in the past few
10:26 am
days. and we, along with the governor and senator, just really need everyone to know that gardner is still open. it's not just a drive through space. it is actually a destination. we do have a lot of things to offer here right in the gardner area for guests who still want to come. >> oh, my goodness so trying to put out that appeal to folks because when they see these images, they're thinking, oh, my gosh, there goes my vacation. there's no way. we're going to cancel our flights, cancel our reservations with cabins, such as yours. how devastating is this for you and your husband. your husband's retired, right, you run these cabins full-time. what's the financial impact now for you? >> we are looking at a 85 to 90% loss of income for the year. we are open year round, but we are truly a seasonal town for
10:27 am
the most part. >> is there any way, you know, that you or anyone who lives in that region to anticipate something like this? this kind of natural catastrophe. there might be some things you anticipate but something on this scale, is this a completely foreign thought that anything liberia this could have happened? >> it's truly devastating. many of us in the town have hoped for years to have alternate ways in and out of gardner to the north and to the south, to the park. there are old roads there that have been abandoned for decades. they have not been maintained because they, of course, are not high priority. but being a nurse for over 20 years, redundancy and back up plans are very necessary. we really dropped the ball on
10:28 am
this one, and i hope going forward once we recover from this disaster, that we will look at maintaining alternate routes out of here so we are not stranded and cut off to the yellowstone national park which is our live line and to the north to livingston and boazman and the rest of montana where we get all of our supplies and visitors trickling through. >> so i'm wondering now, when you look at what this recovery might be like, and i know what you're feeling immediately with people, you know, cancelling their reservations, you just mentioned those words being a fear of being cut off, you know, completely from the park. do you worry about, you know, mother nature sending yet another signal and even though of you there in gardener being potentially cut off from everything you know in which to continue to operate and live and
10:29 am
survive. >> currently the road to the north is open. we are able to get supplies. they reopened highway 89 to the north, to livingston, within a day after the water receded. that is not a worry at this time. they do strongly feel that that road is safe and will hold. regardless of what other minor types of flooding we may have in the next few days. >> i know you mentioned that, you know, you're looking at an 85 to 90% now income loss as a result of all this, and we also understand that you have a go fund me that has been started. in what ways, you know, might people be able to help you out, help support you at least temporarily, if not long-term? >> we are open. nothing here has changed.
10:30 am
we are on very safe tested well water. we are high up on the east end of the river here in gardner. we are only 4 miles from gardner at the north entrance. we are completely open. ready for business. our cabins are gorgeous. they are just watsiting for peoe to come. the way to help, make reservations, not through third parties that most people are probably familiar with, because they keep that none until the moment our guests arrive, but if you can make a reservation in the future later this year, next year, and the years to come, if you're waiting on that bucket trip list for that vacation, make it now. and make it directly with the people in gardner so that they can receive that relief immediately instead of waiting for years. they need the money now.
10:31 am
>> well, shaun dar, i hope many of your vacancies get rebooked now. you're the owner of little trail creek cabins, located right north of the park. we wish you the best. thank you so much. >> visit gardener. so sorry, we just actually cut off part of her audio. sorry about that, i hope you get the business you are needing to stay afloat. all right, as these devastating floods struck the state of montana, and images of destruction jammed social media feeds and news problems, republican governor greg g gianforte was mia. we're getting a clear picture of exactly where he was. >> we're open for business. we want you to come. >> reporter: finally the governor is here. >> we have basements filled with mud, we've had homes washed
10:32 am
away, bridges that have been washed away. we're committed to rebuild this. >> reporter: he's here days after the flood waters that have slammed his state, well, they have already left. no one knew where the governor was all week while his people wrestled with the after math. tj britton's house sailed away. >> i spent 16 years of my life in this place. >> reporter: governor gianforte wouldn't say where he was. he was all over social media during the destructive high waters along the yellowstone river that closed the national park. we are closely monitoring the flooding inside central montana he tweeted monday. didn't say where he was monitoring the flooding from. turns out it wasn't anywhere inside montana. questions started tuesday morning when the lieutenant governor, not the governor signed the state's disaster declaration. gianforte's office told social
10:33 am
media he left saturday with his wife on a personal trip, the day before the waters rose and he would be back asap. they wouldn't say where he was citing security protocols. the federal disaster came thursday but still no sign of the governor in the flesh. these floods are a big deal for montana, millions of dollars worth of damage. the state's north entrance to the national park will be closed for months leaving residents of the gateway town of gardener fearing for their future. >> it became this ghost town. there's nobody here. >> reporter: the last time the national spotlight was so on the treasure state, might have been in 2017 when gianforte body slammed a reporter during his congressional campaign. >> i'm sick and tired of you guys. >> reporter: this week's game of governor where's waldo has echoes of senator ted cruz heading to cancun during a cold snap and power outages in his home state of texas.
10:34 am
cruz caught heat. today in montana, the governor is now back in the saddle. >> montanans are reyilsilient. >> the governor was in italy on vacation. his office says he handed over his authority not lieutenant governor quote with whom he worked closely over the last four days to take swift, decisive action. i will just note there is an eight-hour time difference between montana and italy. many people have been caught on vacation when things happen, maybe be more honest about it. maybe come home a little sooner, and full disclosure, i'm reporting tonight on montana politics from california. i flew out of montana this morning not long after the governor flew back in. nick watt, cnn, los angeles. >> nick, thanks for that clarity. and now a decision just moments ago, the cdc vaccine
