7:03 am
the agency is taking action over the risk of blood clots connected to the vaccine and we'll hear from the head of the covid response team, dr. ashish jha, in just a moment and whit johnson starts us off. good morning, whit. >> reporter: george, good morning. for months now health experts have been moving away from the johnson & johnson vaccine instead recommending pfizer or moderna. but this takes it a significant step further, restricting access to j&j and preventing most americans from getting the shot. this morning, the fda limiting the use of the johnson & johnson single shot vaccine following an investigation into reports of rare blood clots. federal health experts saying there are safer options and now only those 18 and older who don't have access to a pfizer or moderna vaccine or won't take them can still get j&j. >> if you had the j&j shot a long time ago, there is no cause for panic. this is a rare side effect that happens in the days and months after the shot but even with that small risk it meant that the fda would acknowledge that. >> reporter: overnight "gma"
7:04 am
spoke with emma who was 18 when she got the j&j vaccine. >> just one shot, it's quick and i just never in a million years imagined something like this happening. >> reporter: a week after receiving the shot, emma says her life has never been the same. >> 13 months ago, i was hospitalized for about four months as a result of having a brain bleed, blood clots, four strokes, three brain surgeries. >> reporter: this as covid infections are again on the rise in at least 35 states seeing an increase in hospital admissions. health officials also reporting more people are turning to the drug paxlovid to fight covid. its use up tenfold in recent weeks but among patients who took the pills, scientists are now investigating some reports of a relapse in covid symptoms. after taking the five-day course, 63-year-old lauren martin was first thrilled when she started to feel better and tested negative. but a week later those symptoms came back.
7:05 am
>> my symptoms second time around, especially just right from that first day were stronger than my symptoms the first time around. >> reporter: in clinical trials paxlovid cut the risk of hospitalization by nearly 90% despite some reports of relapse. many health experts still confident in the drug's benefits. now, back to the j&j vaccine, of the 17 million americans who got the shot, 9 people have died and while blood clots are serious but very rare, the point experts are saying is that it is very serious but rare. the point they're trying to emphasize is that this sacks is not as safe or effective as the other two that are offered in the u.s. george. >> okay, whit, thanks. let's bring in the white house covid response coordinator dr. ashish jha. thanks for joining us. this fda decision, how big a risk is this johnson & johnson vaccine, and what about if you've already had the shot?
7:06 am
>> yeah, good morning, george. thanks for having me here. first of all, this risk is extremely rare. we're talking about 1 in 2 million people ended up having a really horrible outcome, again, 3 in a million getting any kind of side effect on that we're tracking closely, so it's extremely rare. now what if you've already had the vaccine, you have to remember all of those side effects appear in the first two to three weeks beyond the shot. if you're beyond that you have nothing to worry about except the fact that you've gotten a high-quality vaccine that will protect you. >> who should still get the johnson & johnson vaccine? >> what fda is saying at this point even though this is extremely rare, the bottom line is there are other options. we have moderna and pfizer, both of which don't have this rare side effect, so they're recommending strongly everybody else -- that people get those instead. but if you have a problem with one of those two vaccines then johnson & johnson is still an option for you. >> we've had reports about the paxlovid treatment. how concerned are you about what appears to be the recurrence of symptoms of some people in some people after finishing this treatment from pfizer? >> yeah, so we're still tracking
7:07 am
the data on this. right now what we're seeing is 2%, so 1 out of 50 people end up having some sort of a recurrence. none of those people have in the clinical trials gone on to get particularly sick or end up in the hospital so not particularly concerning. if you are one of those rare people who has this side effect where -- not really side effect but one of these recurrences, you want to isolate for a few more days until the symptoms go away and turn negative again. >> the latest funding stalled on capitol hill. what are the consequences? >> they're quite catastrophic if we do not get funding. my goodness. we're not going to have vaccines for the american people. we'll run out of treatments for the american people. we're not going to have diagnostic testing. it's a pretty bad situation. i think congress is going to step up and do the right thing. they have to. >> dr. jha, thanks as always for your time. >> thank you, george. michael. >> thank you, george. now to wall street. the markets set to open shortly after the new jobs report will be released following the worst
7:08 am
day for investors in almost two years. chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis is at the new york stock exchange. good morning, rebecca. >> reporter: good morning, michael. the sell-off continues this morning with stocks opening lower following the april jobs report, showing 428,000 jobs were created for the month. unemployment constant at 3.6%. wages over the last 12 months up 5.5%. but that is only part of the story. the other part is historic inflation. prices climbing 8.5% over the last year. that means prices are moving up faster than wages are. wall street is aware the federal reserve is on a course of action now intended to try to bring the prices under control. that course of action will mean the economy slows down. the question is will it mean there is a recession? some believe that that could be out in the future. it's something that wall street
7:09 am
has contended with now for the last handful of weeks. it's why the market, so far this year, is down 13.5%. that is the s&p 500, which is the thing that's reflected in most retirement savings accounts. meaning, if you had a $1,000 in the s&p 500 at the start of this year, today, it would be worth about $865, which is why you invest for the long-term. >> rebecca, thank you so much. we turn now to the latest on the battle over abortion after that draft supreme court opinion leaked. democrats scrambling in the event the court overturns roe v. wade. rachel scott is tracking it all this morning and, rachel, democrats and the white house realizing they've got very few options on this one. >> reporter: cecilia, good morning. extremely limited options. democrats have been desperately trying to find a path forward to protect access to abortion for millions of women in this country. they do have a plan but they do not have the republican support they need to get it done. this morning, with the supreme court possibly poised to overturn roe versus wade, democrats are scrambling to find
7:10 am
ways to protect access to abortion. >> we are looking at a broad range of options. >> reporter: the biden administration promising a fight but not offering very many specifics. over on capitol hill senate democrats are pushing forward with a vote on legislation that would secure abortion access for millions. >> next week's vote will be one of the most important we take, not only this session, but in this century. republicans will not be able to hide from the horror they've unleashed on america. >> reporter: but that bill is almost certain to fail. democrats don't have enough republican support to get it passed. only two republican senators support abortion rights, susan collins and lisa murkowski, both support legislation that would make a woman's right to obtain an abortion a federal law. >> my goal is to codify what is essentially existing law. that means roe v. wade. >> reporter: but collins declared she will not support the democrats' bill because it
7:11 am
goes too far. this as states race to put their own rules in place before the supreme court ruling. republican lawmakers in louisiana advanced the bill to classify abortion as a homicide. as connecticut's democratic governor signed a bill protecting patients traveling there from states that have outlawed abortion. >> no politician is going to get between you and your doctor. >> reporter: outside the supreme court, demonstrators faced off. [ crowd chanting ] as investigations into who leaked that opinion draft continues. chief justice john roberts reportedly telling a judicial conference the leak was absolutely appalling. roberts saying he hoped one bad apple wouldn't change the way americans view the supreme court. and that is the question hanging over all of this. what are the political consequences of that leak? chief justice john roberts reportedly said that it will not affect the decision-making process, but what upsets him, it gives the wrong impression to those serving the high court. we get the latest on the war in ukraine. intense battle is under way at
7:12 am
the steel plant that russian forces had under siege for weeks. senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is on the scene, good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, good morning from kharkiv, ukraine, the second largest city and one that's been heavily bombarded since day one of the war. you can see some of the destruction behind me. that was an educational institute for government employeed. raised to the ground by two russian missiles. there was a time when we thought russia would take over the city, but today it's ukrainian troops pushing them back. it's now becoming clear that the benefit is from u.s. weapons and u.s. intelligence too. this morning, new details emerging about american intelligence shared with ukraine that helped sink the flagship of the russian black sea fleet. this is the "moskva" when it was on fire listing severely, a huge loss for russia. a u.s. official telling abc news we do provide a rank of intelligence to help the ukrainians understand the threat posed by russian ships in the black sea and to help them prepare to defend against potential sea-based assaults but the pentagon making clear they had no prior knowledge saying,
7:13 am
we did not provide ukraine with specific targeting information for the "moskva." we were not involved in the ukrainians' decision to strike the ship or in the operation they carried out. at the azovstal plant in mariupol, a band of ukrainian fighters are still holding on despite facing overwhelming russian force. the far right azov battalion posting this video. and this one put out by azov, apparently showing this man, a medic, still trapped inside the plant. saying, "i don't know if there is a tomorrow more me. we're permanently under fire from the air, sea and land." the video couldn't be verified by abc news. in lviv, video showing tuesday's attack on a power plant as russia hits key infrastructure sites. and in the east, the destroyed city of popasna, people in military uniforms seen in this undated video posted by pro-russian separatists. well, the effort to punish putin
7:14 am
and his backers for the war is now intensifying we're seeing a $300 million yacht owned by a russian oligarch seized by the u.s. in fiji on thursday and there are now urgent calls to confiscate this $700 million megayacht docked in italy at the moment before it sets sail in the next few days. what u.s. officials reportedly believe is that this yacht is connected to putin himself. michael. >> all right, thank you so much, ian. we turn now to the baby formula shortage across the country. many stores running out of the critical item and unable to restock. erielle reshef joins us with where to look for help. good morning, erielle. >> reporter: good morning, michael. imagine how upsetting this idea is for so many parents. more than 30% of the national baby formula inventory was out of stock in april after a recall of several major brands. retailers are limiting how much formula can be purchased at a time. some of them. this morning, a terrifying prospect for parents around the country. stores running out of baby formula. unable to restock.
7:15 am
>> he has a very specific brand nutramigen he has to have due to allergy and intolerance issues. >> reporter: shawna says she can't find any formula for her 11 month old son, jacob. >> we've been having to look pretty heavily for it i would say for the last four, five months. but this last month it's just become impossible to find. >> reporter: the shortage began in february after formula manufacturer abbott recalled popular brands of powdered infant formula after reports that four infants developed sev severe illness and two died. >> you have these kids going without formula and not knowing what to do with your baby. >> reporter: dodielle rungs a nebraska pharmacy. >> we sent all this back and now all these people are trying to find something else for their kids to be on because, of course, they need that formula to survive. >> you go back and forth. how much do i keep for my own daughter and how much do i leave for other people? >> reporter: moms who are able to breast-feed stepping in to try to help. >> i do pump in the night after
7:16 am
i am done feeding her to get a little extra, some ounces, because each ounce counts. i have people come to my home and come collect from me. >> reporter: it's amazing these moms are stepping up. experts say check with reputable local organizations and social media groups to see if there are additional options. some parents have created online groups to help each other share what they need. such a sensitive situation, guys. >> yeah, very much so, erielle, thanks so much. we are revving up for a huge race weekend. the world's most popular motorsport, formula 1, in miami for the very first time. and our miami guy, victor oquendo, is right there on the track. victor, some of these tickets are going for as much as 10,000 bucks? >> reporter: and i'm going to show you why. good morning from the site of the formula 1 miami grand prix, we are right along turn number 7 and here are some of the best seats in the house. this is the marina section. you've got this row of yachts set up and fans will be able to watch on board. the yachts are real, by the way,
7:17 am
the water on the other hand, it's really just like a raised platform. water not so real. this entire area home to the miami dolphins has been converted for the big race. the track is nearly 3 1/2 miles l long. i spoke with a few of the drivers. there are blind turns, and speed could exceed 200 miles per hour. there's also the heat this weekend that will make conditions in the car a little rough. this sport has just exploded in popularity in the united states. thanks in part to a netflix docu-series and this weekend all the big names including lewis hamilton have descended on miami. you also have major cities like austin and las vegas becoming home to some of the tour's biggest races. so race weekend is finally here in miami. you can catch coverage right here on abc and if you want to see it in person, yes, prices can get a little expensive if you like to watch on board one of these. that's reportedly nearly $10,000 a pop. >> we didn't spring for a yacht for you, "gma"? >> reporter: nope, i'll be watching from the press area.

radiating to the back, neck, arm, or jaw. >> if you feel any of that, make sure -- >> 911 immediately. >> and how can you lower the risk? >> i think what's really important here, people know, you know, 85% of heart disease is preventable with behavioral modification, lifetime. you need to know your individual risk. that means knowing family history, knowing ab/gyn risk factor, stop smoking, controlling the numbers, blood pressure, cholesterol, and medication if indicated can be life saving. >> doc, thank you, as always, for bringing us great information. cecilia. we turn to a popular hashtag on tiktok that can help you manage your budget. perhaps even help you save for the future. erielle is back with more on this. they're calling it cash stuffing. >> they are and this is like your grandma used to do it but now it's popular on tiktok. you don't need an app and it doesn't involve cryptocurrency. all you need is good old-fashioned cash and envelopes. cash stuffing is a no-tech
8:22 am
strategy to stay on budget. tiktok personalities say it works. it's known as cash stuffing. taking your hard earned cash and dividing it into different categories like bills, savings, even date night and stuffing the cash into different envelopes or binders. >> hey, guys, today is date day. so we'll take some money out of our envelope. >> reporter: a budgeting phenomenon taking over tiktok. the hashtag cash stuffing garnering over 376 million views. >> so phone is going to get 130. >> reporter: garcia is a tiktok cash stuffer. online, she shows how she uses cash binders to manage upon the money for herself and kids. >> i swipe my card too much. you don't really see how much money you're spending until you want to, say, how much do i have left in my account before i make this purchase? >> reporter: it's a strategy that helps her stay on track. using the method, stephanie says she's not only managed to keep debt low, she's saved $10,000 for the future. >> i started using this method
8:23 am
and came to the point where i started even reducing my own debt by making extra payments on my credit card. >> reporter: this back to cash movement is a new twist on what was formerly known as enveloping. stephanie says when she's tempted to overspend her stuffing keeps her in check. >> essentially every single time i get paid, i'm just setting aside money for my bills. when it is time to pay the bills, i remove money from the envelopes, deposit to the bank. >> reporter: some say if you're going to try cash stuffing start slow. >> if you are budgeting for the first time, try this out with a few categories and you'll see, wow, i do have this accountability. >> i love you said this is what your grandmother used to do. like shoving it under the mattress. in the modern version, can you do cash stuffing, use cash stuffing, to get out of debt? >> a lot want to know this. our exert said cash stuffing is about staying on budget for monthly expenses and getting an idea of where your money goes,
8:24 am
not necessarily getting out of large-scale debt. if you do have extra money left in the envelopes at the end of the month you could use it to pay down lower debts. >> what you're not doing with cash stuffing is using a credit card, right? does that end up being a problem if you don't build up your credit score? >> it will not help you build your credit score obviously but it's important to remember that while using credit cards to boost your score may sound like a good idea, it can also put you in debt. you can still get a mortgage without a high credit score using what's called manual underwriting. an underwriter will look at your tax return, income, debt in addition to your credit report. it's a little bit more of a complete picture to determine whether you can qualify for a loan. >> you got a big old stack of cash. >> i don't know what i'll do with this later. >> we'll go get breakfast. thanks. we head back to ginger now who is gearing up for our breakfast in bed surprise. >> reporter: yes, cecilia. we have all the middle schoolers. are y'all excited? we got a big surprise coming. yada had some of the best energy. i said, you have to help me do the weather. are you ready for warmth. >> yes!
