great to have you with us on a saturday morning. linsey davis and victor oquendo are here with me. >> good morning, i heard it was how you doing. >> good to be here. welcome from miami. yes, from miami to new york. national pasta day. >> we're gonna took it up. >> that is why efs like this is going a good day. >> and so great to actually see you guys in person. this never happens. when i was first asked to come up here. i thought oh no, is there a hurricane coming or? then i found out i was going to be indoors with you guys. >> with us and there will be food later. we have a busy morning here so we'll get right to it with the news starting with the pandemic and the white house opening the doors to foreign travelers. >> starting november 8th, those coming from many other countries will be allowed to visit if they show proof of full vaccination before entering the u.s. as well as a negative covid test within 72 hours of their departure. >> now an fda advisor panel has unanimously endorsed the johnson
and johnson booster. jenee norman starts us off with the story. >> the fda advisory panel is backing the j&j booster shot for everyone 18 and johnson & johnson's one dose has shown to be 85% effective against severe illness, add a second dose and it jumps to 100% effective against severe illness. this morning, the 15 million americans who got the johnson & johnson vaccine could soon be eligible for a booster shot. that decision now in the hands of the fda and the cdc. >> we do have 19 out of 19 unanimous "yes" votes for this question. >> reporter: this after the fda advisory panel voted unanimously to authorize the booster saying the shot could come roughly two months after the first single shot vaccine for everyone 18 and older. johnson & johnson saying in a statement that booster dose
provided 94% protection against moderate to severe covid symptoms. devin gauffman got the johnson & johnson vaccine as soon as he was eligible and now he's eager to get a booster. >> as soon as it's ready, i'll be ready to get it. >> reporter: health experts on the fda vaccine panel are waiting for more data as they consider whether it's safe for johnson & johnson recipients to mix and match booster doses. a preliminary nih study hinting they may benefit more from mrna boosters, pfizer or moderna. >> it does seem like there's again some consensus this is an important option for people to have. >> reporter: fda panel members discussing the option of boosting pfizer or moderna vaccines with johnson & johnson or the other mrna shot. the cdc updating guidance for the holiday season saying the best way to minimize covid-19 risk is for eligible people to get vaccinated.
the decision not to get vaccinated is one this new hampshire man regrets, after covid left him in the hospital for 15 days. >> the medical team on me was trying to make a decision whether or not to put me on the ventilator. i remember i called my mother to say good-bye. >> reporter: his wife offering support, sitting outside the hospital. he's now urging anyone who hasn't had a shot to get one. >> if you don't get vaccinated for your family and your friends, please get vaccinated for the medical workers. >> reporter: and the cdc panel meets next week, they'll be weighing in on the issue of mixing and matching boosters and discuss recommendations on the moderna and j&j boosters. if approved, we could see the boosters starting by the end of next week. whit? >> janai, thank you. joining us is dr. paul offit, vaccine expert from the children's hospital of philadelphia and a member of the fda advisory panel that voted to authorize the johnson & johnson booster shot. doctor, good morning to you. it's always good to have you. take us inside that panel
meeting. you and some of your colleagues expressed some concern about a lack of long-term data, and yet the panel voted unanimously to recommend j&j boosters after just two months and for younger people as well. what went into that decision? >> when we considered the single dose j&j vaccine at the end of february, we knew at that time that the vaccine was roughly 74% effective against all illness, 85% effective against serious illness but we also knew they were in the midst of doing a two dose trial. 30,000-person two-dose trial. they knew from their so-called phase one studies their dose ranging studies they had shown there was a two to three-fold increase to neutralizing antibodies with the second dose. we look at this data, 30,000-person study. it wasn't 75% effective against infection, it was 94% effective mrna vaccines so i thi decision to make this a two-dose recommendation was an easy one.
>> so you noted this idea that j&j perhaps should have been a two-dose vaccine from the beginning. what message does that send to the 15 million americans who thought this was one and done and what does this mean going forward? could this end up being recommended as a two-shot vaccine? >> it was one and excellent. the one dose unlike the mrna vaccines where a single dose did not induce immunological memory, which is the part of your immune response that protects you from serious disease. one dose of the j&j did that. you had 85% protection against serious illness, that was excellent. we've gone from excellent to much better with that second dose and i think the cdc likely will recommend this as a two-dose vaccine. >> you discuss there in the panel discussion, was this idea of mixing and matching vaccines, for example, if you originally got j&j, you could perhaps get a booster of pfizer or moderna. you didn't vote on this, but could that be next here? >> definitely. i think we need those kind of data.
there was a study recently that came out of sweden that was hep journal of medicine, they looked at people who got astrazeneca's vaccine, similar to johnson & johnson. and then they divided them in half. half got a second dose of astrazeneca and the other half moderna. with the boost of the mrna vaccine was much better. >> if that is the case, some people who got the j&j vaccine might say why get a j&j booster? should i wait and get pfizer or moderna in the future? what do you say to them? >> i think they should wait until there's more data. the studies presented at yesterday's fda vaccine advisory meeting involved about 50 people per group so that's a small study. you want to make sure there's no surprises. you'd like to see a larger data set before you move forward on that kind of recommendation. >> another thing i want to ask you about here, regulators are expected to address the pfizer vaccine for kids ages 5 to 11 by the end of the month. what do you hope to see in the data and what's your message to parents?
>> so we'll be considering that on october 26th, the 5 to 11-year-old. you hope to see robust data of excellent immune responses and clear evidence of safety. we need a vaccine for children. i was on service last week and we had a number of children in our hospital including in the intensive care unit with covid, so we do need a vaccine for children but we need one that's safe and effective and we'll certainly make sure that's true before we ever make a recommendation to move forward. >> i'm among those parents eagerly awaiting for information on that. dr. offit, thank you so much for your time. we really appreciate it. linsey, over to you. >> thank you, my pleasure. >> whit, thank you. now to the severe storms threatening millions across the country. rob marciano joins us from georgia with more. good morning to you, rob. >> reporter: linsey, this is the same system that brought several days' worth of severe weather and slowly moving east into areas with record-breaking heat. we had one tornado warning this morning, just north of
pittsburgh and that line will continue to press off to the east over the appalachians and into that area that's going to be really unstable as we go through the next few hours. i-95 will get it 2:00/3:00 in the afternoon, heavily populated. philadelphia in through new york city, back through scranton, where we could see not just damaging winds but the possibility of a tornado. more on this throughout the show. victor, back over to you. >> we know you're following t rob, thank you. we turn to the latest on former president bill clinton in a california hospital this morning, after being admitted earlier this week. abc's marcus moore is at uc irvine medical center with the latest on mr. clinton's condition. good morning, marcus. >> reporter: hey, victor, good morning. doctors here still monitoring the former president's condition as he battles an infection. overnight he continued to receive iv treatment to combat what started out as a urological infection and spread to a general infection, and he spoke to president biden over the phone yesterday and the president telling reporters that the former president clinton is in good spirits and doing well.
the 75-year-old was admitted to the hospital on tuesday we understand because he was overly fatigued. doctors say he has been responding well to antibiotics and fluids, but he's not completely out of the woods ye whh why s has been texting and even joki arouh the dil aff, . stressed that he does not have covid, and that his illness is not related to his history of heart disease. you might remember, he had quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 and a pair of stents implanted in 2010, and this of course is his first trip to the west coast since the beginning of the pandemic, and this morning everybody is just hoping for a speedy recovery. but there is still no exact word on when he'll be released from this hospital. whit? >> still encouraging news from the former president there. marcus moore, thank you. now to the supply chain
crisis seeming to get worse each day. the ports are clogged with ships filled with goods and supplies. but transportation issues on shore are grinding deliveries to a halt. phil lipof is here with the efforts to get things going before the holidays. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. economists are describing a snowball effect here. you have pandemic related worker for carg fm ovse shs li up ts and now isruck bolenee afctg the d's economic are expected to get worse in the coming days and months. ships are backlogged and now a looming trucker shortage. the american trucking association estimates prior to the pandemic the industry was short 60,000 drivers, that number only increased with retirements and not being able to train new drivers because trucking schools have closed. >> everything shut down, people
were laid off and nothing was flowing. getting things from ships onto trucks, trucks onto full freight to half freight, those transition points are where we are seeing gaps. >> reporter: prices and wait times are up, small businesses taking a big hit. for the owner of one apparel business, it is a race against the clock for seasonal items. >> we're seeing delays. i'm seeing delays of two months, month and a half, two months, so >> repte 40% of all u.s. imports come through southern california's ports, but right now, loaded cargo g off the coast of los hips are angeles and long beach. big retailers are chartering lithdays, the pandemic affecting every link in the supply chain. already americans are paying more for eggs and meat, both costing 12% more than just a year ago. >> even if you're not buying or selling anything you're a consumer of that and because of that you're part of the supply
chain and seeing the effect of it. >> reporter: this year record-breaking price jumps for children's shoes up 12%, furniture up 11%, even going out to dinner will cost you an unprecedented 5.2% more than last year. >> we have to catch up. >> reporter: president biden trying to ease the burden asking companies to work together and ports to work around the clock, trying to fix the backlog and pause inflation, already up 5.5%. retail sales rose more than expected, 0.7%, that's according to the census bureau so on one hand that could mean a resilient consumer. on the other hand, it could mean that consumers just paying more for goods because of inflation. victor? >> all right, phil, thank you. killing of a member of british parliament fatally stabbed outside of london.
>> the incident now being investigated as terrorism. the veteran lawmaker, david amess has been taking part in regular meetings. just yesterday he was stabbed multiple times and declared dead before reaching the hospital. police say a 25 year old british man has been arrested and he remains in custody and as of yet has not been charged. counterterrorism police now leading the inquiry say they have found a link islamist exem amess a prominent brexit supporter, animals and women's healthcare campaigner leaves behind a wife and five children. many lawmakers here in britain

>> all right, we are back. david pollack in the house again a georgia bulldog himself. your team's looking good thi ar. nuer1, how's that feel? >> feels pretty good. it's early and what you don't want is kids thinking ahead of the schedule going hey, we're number one. that's the hardest part of coaching is trying to get them not to peek ahead and say we're good. arkansas was a test a couple weeks ago. you were here. another top 11 team with kentucky. >> they shut down arkansas. this defense is for real. what makes'em so good? it's dirty. >> it's dirty, it really is. the best defenses we've steen statistically since 2011 alabama and they're flirting with the
numbers. they have given up 33 points in six games. six. bamaup 41 last wk,ama. but the definitely, they got some dudes up front that are enormous. they would swallow you whole. i went to jordan davis, 6'7" 350 depending on whether he had breakfast. and he walked by the other day and looked like he was wearing shoulder it's build in. they have several guys across the front dominating speed all over the field. >> three-touchdown favorite against undefeated kentucky and offensive side, stetson bennett. what makes him so good this year. >> that's probably the coolest story ever. you guys should talk about that. i think he's underrated because he's a walk on and nobody gave him any respect but this kid delivers, man. his but he does it. he delivers. he's tiny, not real big, 5'10", 5'11" but good athlete with his
speed and last year the misnomer was he stinks because he had rough moments last year. he also got some experience. he's allowed to get better just like everybody else is. he's improved, gotten better and j.t. is getting healthier, the other quarterback and georgia's got a decision to make. he's been that good. >> he's been fun to watch for sure. another game on abc at the same time is iowa/purdue. iowa ranked number two. >> crazy. last week they were in a fight with penn state. penn state's quarterback got hurt, they came back and made every play they needed to make and their defense is dirty, too, by the way. their defense is the second best defense in the country. iowa is the same team every year, they always make you earn it. they don't commit penalties, don't commit turnovers and make you kill yourself every single time, every single game so you better be ready not to make mistakes and be disciplined.ind interesting season. what does kentucky need to do to have any chance today? >> you got to throw the football.
those monsters up front, you're not going to pound them, not going to move them, they're mountains. you have to throw the football consistency and will levvis the quarterback for kentucky highly recruited kid, went to penn state, transferred to kentucky. he can make plays with his feet and get extra first downs and hopefully you tire him out. the boys are big but you get reps and reps and reps and i don't know what the weather will be like but i'm sure it's going to be hot especially in georgia, try to get the defense worn out. >> you got to sleep in your own bed again last night again. >> winning, bro, winning. >> the whole espn gameday crowd will be on the air as always 9:. od to se >> appreciate you. >> all right. the kids are ready. back over to you. >> love that college enthusiasm and the creativity of some of the signs as well. >> it is creative, especially for our post editing department. >> we need to be a little careful sometimes. >> exactly. coming up on "gma" the showdown in chicago for vaccines

well as public health. the union says roughly half of their 12,000 members could be impacted. this morning a court battle and public dispute playing out in the windy city. chicago's police union dismissed the vaccine mandates. about half of chicago's force, the second largest in the country are impacted because they've opted not to get shots. >> what we've seen from the fraternal order of police in particular the leadership is a lot of misinformation, a lot of half truths and frankly flat-out lies in order to induce an insurrection. >> reporter: overnight a judge issued a temporary restraining order against the police union president, john catanzaro. the order stops him from making public statements telling members not to report their vaccination status. the mayor requested the restraining order after he publicly urged officers to defy orders. >> any sergeant, lieutenant, cptain or above who gives you an order to go in that portal is not valid. you are able to refuse that order. >> reporter: police who say they are not vaccinated can opt into testing or apply for an
exemption. the city announcing those who do not abide by the rules will be 34r5is placed on a no-pay status. the police union has filed a motion to dismiss the mayor's complaint. >> if this mayor doesn't stvi t police and start focusing on public safety, you are going to have a rash number of retirements in the very immediate future here. >> assuming departments are going to lose a percentage of their workforce if these orders are found to be valid, they will have to find a way to manage through it. >> reporter: the mandate clock is running out in other major cities across the country. a group of raleigh, north carolina city employees, including police officers are threatening to sue the city over their vaccine mandate saying it discriminates. a similar mandate in seattle is causing staffing shortages, union leaders saying the decision should be part of labor negotiations. and in san francisco, 120 officers jobs are in jeopardy for failing to meet those
vaccine deadlines. >> it's going to affect every district station in the city. >> reporter: the mayor says it will be at least until monday before they are able to gauge who's in compliance. it's worth noting that covid has killed more police officers over the last year than any other cause of death. 62%. linsey? >> staggering number there, zachary, thank you. joining us is abc news contributor and former nypd chief of detectives, mr. robert boyce. welcome, chief, always good to talk to you. zachary mentioned chicago's mayor sued the police union president over his stance on the vaccine mandates, and he's mentioned it in a veiled threat, a sizeable part of his force is eligible to retire at this point. what kind of impact is all this having on the state of policing in chicago right now? >> well, it's exactly what chicago doesn't need right now. they're in the throes of a terrific, horrific i should say crime, violent crime spike and that's what we're seeing now. the people of chicago don't deserve this and neither do its police officers. this pitched battle between him
and the mayor, the saber rattling back and forth needs to stop. and what i see right now across the nation, everywhere. but there is no need for noncompliance in going to a portal. i don't see the problem there. she's already backed off and said you can have testing so i think there's some room to play here. but not to show up, i believe the police officers will show up to work. we'll revise hit it on monday and hopefully go forward in a more coordinated fashion. >> as you say, this is happening everywhere, other cities are going through similar issues with vaccinated city workers. the sheriff of los angeles said he will not force his employees to get vaccinated as required by mandate. how do you think this is all going to play out? >> i think they'll be tested, as in new york, they have weekly testing here. it's paid for by the health benefits of the police officers, and they do it on job time. so we've seen some softening here to go forward together instead of apart and i think this contentious relationship between the mayor and the police
union chief there, it's playing out. it's unnecessary and hopefully someone who is in quiets this thing so the city of chicago needs its police force and the police force wants to be accepted by the city, so this stuff is not necessary. hopefully we'll see it toned down in behavior and talk and get on common ground. >> chief boyce, appreciate your time and insight. thank you so much. >> thank you. all right, and it is time now for weather, we're going to check back with rob marciano. he's following college gameday with us as well. he's in athens georgia. e rd hats are out, the signs are bananas this week. these kids are ready to go. the best georgia's been in years, undefeated, going against sec rival, that's also undefeated, kentucky wildcats, it's going to be a game for sure. one of many today. let's talk a little bit about should be all right i think
