7:03 am
>> it is. we begin with the news of the rollout of covid vaccines for children as young as 6 months old. >> a landmark day in the battle against covid. eva pilgrim is live outside a drugstore here in new york. good morning, eva. >> reporter: good morning, robin. those shots, as you can see, will start going into arms, those little arms, as soon as today. they shipped out to hospitals, clinics and pharmacies like this one over the weekend. now nearly everyone who wants a vaccine can get one. this morning parents now able to get the covid vaccine for their littlest ones. the cdc giving the green light to both the pfizer and moderna vaccines for kids as young as 6 months old. >> nearly 20 million children are now able to get vaccinated against covid-19. >> reporter: families have two options, pfizer, a course of three shots each, one-tenth of the adult dose, stretched out over 11 weeks. or moderna, two shots, a quarter
7:04 am
of the adult dose, one month apart. while children are less likely to become severely ill from covid, doctors say it is still critical for them to get vaccinated. >> this is the best way to hedge bets against severe illness, hospitalization, long covid, and any potential issues that may happen with a fall surge. >> reporter: medical experts know getting parents to vaccinate their little ones is going to be an uphill battle. according to a survey taken in april before the cdc rcommendation, only 1 in 5 parents said they were eager to get their children the covid vaccine. one such parent, victoria staab, hoping to get her 4-year-old son vaccinated this week. >> it's been challenging. we kept him out of preschool which he should be enrolling in this fall. that's going to be a very huge step for us. >> reporter: meanwhile, 4 in 10 parents said they were reluctant to get their children vaccinated right away, instead, planning to
7:05 am
wait. >> it makes me a little bit nervous with a vaccine that is fairly new. >> reporter: they chose to enroll their then-8-month-old and 3-year-old in the vaccine child and said both had no issues with the vaccine. >> it's really peace of mind that you don't need to worry about this potentially dangerous and potentially fatal disease for your young kids. >> reporter: and this is 4-year-old old leo and his mother heather. he is the first one in his age group to get this newly green lighted vaccine here at this walgreens. he's getting the moderna shot this morning, doing such a good job. we also promised him that he would get a green lollipop when it was all over, guys. george? >> he was very calm right there. eva, thanks very much. let's bring in the head of covid response to the white house, dr. ashish jha. dr. jha, thank you for joining us this morning.
7:06 am
let's walk through some of the details. moderna is two doses. pfizer is three. how should parents wade through this information? which one makes more sense? >> good morning, george. thanks for having me back. when the cdc scientists and the fda experts looked at this, they both green lighted both of them because the data for both of them are really quite compellingly clear. what i say to parents is we're lucky to have two choices. they're both exceedingly safe, both effective. either one is fine. there's some nuance subtle differences. you can talk to your family physician or pediatrician about them. >> during the omicron surge, children with less vulnerable. do they need the vaccine at all? >> i think they do and here is why. one of the things we know reinfections are happening especially the omicron wave did not generate the kind of immunity that prior waves have. and the evidence is really clear that vaccinations prevent hospitalizations, serious illness including in kids. so even if the kids have been previously infected i think it's clearly worth getting. >> how about the timing? it's summer now. most kids are outside for much of the day. they're not in school. should parents wait until closer t the school year to vaccinate
7:07 am
their children? >> i would say to do it now because, remember, it takes a little while to get both doses, or all three doses, depending on which one you take. it takes a little while to develop full immunity. if you're thinking about getting your child fully protected, maximally protected before the fall, starting sooner rather than later is a good idea. >> final timing question, if kids are about to turn 5, should the parents wait until they're 5 so they can get the stronger dose? >> this is a question i get asked most by my friends with kids in that age range. i think you should get them vaccinated. if they're right on the cusp, talk to your pediatrician or family physician. the bottom line is we have safe, effective vaccines for 4 and 5-year-olds. it probably doesn't matter hugely. >> dr. jha, thanks for your time and information. we'll turn to the economy and recession. on "this week" janet yellen told me she does expect the economy to slow down. >> it's been growing at a rapid rate as the economy, the labor market, has recovered and we
7:08 am
have reached full employment. it's natural now that we expect to transition to steady and stable growth. but i don't think a recession is at all inevitable. >> secretary yellen also told me that a federal gas tax holiday is under consideration. our chief business correspondent rebecca jarvis joins us now. rebecca, we heard the secretary say recession is not inevitable. a chorus of economists and ceos believe a recession is coming. >> reporter: which is absolutely the case, george. good morning to you. this is the first time in a long time i can say this but we are not facing a new record here at the pump. in fact, gas prices are now below $5 a gallon but not far from there and still 40 cents higher than they were just a month ago with these considerations of the national gas tax holiday. so what would that potentially mean for you? it would shave about 18 cents off every gallon of gas and it would also take money away from infrastructure projects. it's a balancing act in a time
7:09 am
like this when you have prices soaring, really across the board. everything from rents to shelter costs to the cost of groceries up 12% from a year ago. airfares up nearly 40% and we are starting to see those first signs of slowdown in areas like retail sales which dipped in may for the first time this year. bookings for airfares are also down just slightly month over month. and, finally, michael, we're just seeing this potential pullback among consumers, the first signs that a slowdown and maybe a recession are on the horizon. michael? >> thank you, rebecca. we're going to turn to the panic overnight in the streets of washington, d.c., at a juneteenth festival when gunfire erupted. this morning the suspect is still at-large. maryalice parks has the latest from d.c. good morning, maryalice. >> reporter: michael, good morning. it was one of those summer nights where everyone was out and about trying to enjoy the weather. all of a sudden, police were
7:10 am
rushing in from every direction to this area that was just packed with people. overnight chaos and panic in the streets of d.c. after gunfire erupted at a packed juneteenth concert and festival. police say the unauthorized event was being shut down after a series of fights and issues with the massive crowd. >> uh-oh. no, that is straight up gunshots. >> reporter: and then around 8:30 p.m. a gunman opening fire killing a teenager police say was 15 years old and injuring three others including a d.c. police officer. >> with guns involved and with our police managing a crowd on site, somebody used a gun and a child is dead. >> reporter: witnesses recording as medics and police rushed to aid the wounded and terrified concert goers flee for safety. other people injured as a result of their legs and ankles being trampled while trying to leave the area. officials say multiple guns were recovered in the aftermath but
7:11 am
the weapon used by the suspect is nowhere to be found this morning. >> all it takes is one person introducing a gun to the situation that makes it deadly. in this case we need to make sure individuals are held accountable for their actions. >> reporter: now d.c. confirming to us that the teenager who died was just 15 years old. the police officer was shot in the leg. he's in stable condition as are the other two victims. robin? >> so tragic. maryalice, thank you. a busy week ahead from that major supreme court decision expected on abortion to a critical moment for gun control negotiations and the january 6th hearings continuing as well. our senior white house correspondent mary bruce is there in washington tracking it all for us. good morning, mary. >> reporter: good morning, robin. yeah, this could be a pivotal week in our nation's history. all eyes on this big case on roe v. wade that could implicitly overturn the right to an abortion in this country. we are also closely watching a guns case that could make it easier to carry a concealed firearm in public. it comes, of course, as the hill is racing to pass bipartisan gun
7:12 am
reforms. negotiators say they are heading in the right direction but have hit a snag over republican opposition to red flag laws and the so-called boyfriend loophole, efforts to close that. negotiators are facing a tremendous amount of pressure, though, celebrities, gun reform advocates and victims of gun violence are speaking out in an online filibuster and the top negotiator, republican senator john cornyn, over the weekend was booed and formally rebuked by his own party down in texas, robin. the >> the january 6th hearings, of course, continuing as well this week. what can we expect? >> reporter: two more hearings this week, robin. this time the focus largely on the trump team's effort to pressure state officials to overturn the election results and in a sign hat these hearings may be resonating our latest poll shows that 6 in 10 americans now think the former president should be charged with a crime, robin. >> all right, mary. thank you.
7:13 am
michael? now to juneteenth. take a live look at the monument in galveston, texas, commemorating the legal end of slavery but one year after juneteenth became an official federal holiday more than 30 states don't give workers a paid day off. congressional correspondent rachel scott is in washington with more for us this morning. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: hey, michael, good morning. advocates say that today's holiday is largely symbolic because more than a year after president biden signed juneteenth into law making it a federal holiday, most states today will not be giving their workers any paid time off. in fact, only 18 states have enacted laws to make juneteenth a paid state holiday. that means 32 states, nearly two-thirds of the country, state workers will not be able to take today as a paid holiday. and by some estimates most of the private sector will not either. juneteenth, of course, marks the end of slavery, commemorating the day word finally reached the slaves in galveston, texas, letting them know they had been freed. critics of the legislation say putting funding towards making juneteenth a federal holiday is simply too expensive. others claim it's not widely celebrated. but a recent gallup poll shows awareness is rising, that 6 in
7:14 am
10 americans know what juneteenth is. black americans have been celebrating juneteenth for decades and they say it's important to have this history recognized. michael? >> i agree. very important. rachel, thank you. george? we'll turn to the front lines of russia's war on ukraine. abc news has a closer look at how long-range u.s. howitzers are being used to fend off the russian onslaught. foreign correspondent james longman has the latest. >> reporter: this morning abc news with exclusive access to the american weapons being used by ukraine in its fight against russia. that is the m-777 u.s.-made howitzer. it is the long-range piece of artillery which ukraine says is making so much difference to its war. one you fire, you have to move. and the beauty of this particular gun is that it's lighter than anything ukrainians have got, so it can be moved out of position before the russians reply. these weapons are the most advanced ukraine now has in its arsenal. we spoke to an artillery commander who was trained by the united states in europe to use this type of equipment.
7:15 am
[speaking foreign language] he says the howitzers are so lightweight and easy to move the enemy can't understand how we so work so rapidly and open fire from the areas not usually suitable for artillery. this comes as three american veterans who volunteered to fight with the ukrainians have gone missing, two of them have reportedly been captured by russian forces. these videos were posted by state media showing two of them giving pro-russian statements, presumably coerced to do so. the state department is looking into validity. >> i saw a video that i am -- i, as mom, am positive is my son, but that has not been verified yet. >> reporter: as the war rages on civilian targets are destroyed every day. in sumi ten houses were destroyed by russian shelling. in the east russian missiles struck a fuel depot sending plumes of black smoke into the air. with each side taking losses in some areas and making gains in others, the nato secretary-general has said this war in ukraine could last for years. michael? >> the long haul. thank you so much, james. now we're going to turn to
7:16 am
that new round of dangerous heat across much of the nation putting more than 10 million americans under heat alert with the central u.s. dealing with temperatures near 100 degrees. of course ginger is here tracking the latest. we complained about the cold, now it's the head. >> it is the heat and it is extreme all the way up to canada. i wanted to show you the pictures. it's one thing if you're on the boats enjoying the water. the twin cities, 80 degrees already. that's their average high. that's at 6:00 a.m. minnesota's department of transportation anticipates roads to buckle. that's the type of heat and humidity we are talking about. and it is not just minneapolis. you go all the way up to fargo, they're in that excessive heat warning, parts of south dakota, too, and down to the gulf coast. look at lafayette feeling like 102. 103, houston. the heat indices. it will feel even hotter than it is because their dew point is minneapolis was 70. anytime that happens you are going to be downright sticky and uncomfortable and even dangerous. chicago, atlanta, raleigh as well. all right, robin. >> when you see the roads buckling, you know it's hot. ginger, thank you.

to game three of the stanley cup final and a must-win for the tampa bay lightning. the two-time defending champions are down two games to none after the avalanche shut out the lightning 7-0 in game two. victor oquendo is there in tampa. you're shaking your head. good morning, victor. >> reporter: good morning, robin. the tampa bay lightning definitely have their work cut out for them fresh off the 7-0 loss. they're now down 0-2 in the series. no need to panic just yet. the defending champs have been here before. let's show you what game two looked like. all avalanche putting on a scoring clinic. the lightning goalie vasilevskiy considered the best in the world, giving up a career-worst seven goals. however, this is not unfamiliar territory for the lightning. it was just last round they were down 0-2 against the rangers and they went on to win four straight and advance to the stanley cup final. so i wouldn't say that the lightning have them right where they want them, but they are the two-time defending champs for a reason. don't count them out just yet especially when the home crowd gets behind them. the puck drops at 8:00 right here on abc.

athletes. swimming's international governing board says they consulted with scientists and policymakers and voted to essentially ban them from elite competitions, including the olympics unless they medically transition before age 12. some see it as a triumph of fairness or equity and others see it as a blow to inclusion. a bombshell ruling in the world of international sports. as of this morning the swimming world's governing body, fina, effectively banning transgender athletes from competing in women's events. the organization voting it will only allow women who have transitioned by age 12 to compete in international races like the olympics. leaving out athletes like one of the sport's rising stars, 23-year-old lia thomas, the first-known transgender athlete to win a division i national title. thomas, who began her transition as a sophomore at upenn speaking out recently for the first time on "gma." >> there are some who look at the data and suggest that you're enjoying a competitive advantage.

what do you say to that? >> there's a lot of factors that go into a race and how well you do and the biggest change for me is that i'm happy. sophomore year i had my best times competing with the men and i was miserable. and so having that be lifted is incredibly relieving and allows me to put my all into training, into racing. >> some of the critics would say, oh, you transitioned in order to be successful. >> transpeople don't transition for athletics. we transition to be happy and authentic and our true selves. transitioning to get an advantage is not something that ever factors into our decisions. >> you didn't transition to win more medals? >> no. >> reporter: but a fina spokesperson telling the ap according to the scientists they consulted if you transition

8:05 am
some of the balance, the better effects of the gas tax. that said, ceos, a number of them as well as economists, foresee a recession on the horizon. a growing number believe this is possible. in particular what we've already started to see in the economy is slowing down. we're seeing retail sales down in may. consumers are pulling back. even flight bookings are down and consumers are now having to really prioritize those needs over those wants with prices climbing. robin? >> all right, rebecca, thank you. wnba legend sue bird feeling the love here in new york city before what could be her final game in her hometown. new york hosted the seattle storm yesterday. watch as sue gets the ball at the top of the key, and she's going to drain the three. did we see that already? here is the best part, new york fans -- new york fans -- gave her a standing ovation. the four-time wnba champ grew up

this. just like different perspectives and maybe it's just a place for people to vent, but it's been really fun so far. it'll be out soon. >> tell us about the new book "the world needs more purple schools." >> this is -- oh, it's such a big part of my heart, this book. we wrote "the world needs more purple people" at a time our kids were just seeing everyone in the world arguing. we were all just involved in this outrage addiction and we thought what if there were a set of principles that kids thought were really cool, like good values, and we basically took our purple principles from the first book and applied them to a place where people come together to grow and learn and share and make better ideas and learn about each other, which is a school. it's really a love letter to and for educators because we've all had those educators in our lives that have changed the trajectory of who we are. educators have been on the front lines of a lot of stuff over the last few years. we wanted to write a love letter to them. >> that is the truth. they sure have.
8:24 am
and speaking of your first book, you did receive criticism for the first book because they say you were promoting colorblindness. what do you have to say to people who thought that? >> first of all, that's kind of what the book is about. it's about hearing other people share, using your own voice but also listening. i think that came out of what i can identify as during the first promotion of the book was in the middle of 2020, when we were all learning a lot of stories that were necessary to learn about, right, and i used the word sameness in one interview, and i was talking about character. we may think we're totally different, but if we both like pizza, maybe let's start there. and then you can learn my story. i can learn your story and we can bring together better ideas. but the word sameness was not the right word to use at that point, and that's kind of what being a purple person is all about. i was using my voice but i was also listening so that word was not applicable anymore, and i learned from it. >> so take us inside a purple school. what's the ideal?
8:25 am
>> well, a purple school is a place where, again, like i said, the educators help our little people, but i think the book is almost -- i hate to market it for grown-ups, but get it if you're a grown-up. our purple principles are inarguably good. that was the goal. what can no one argue about? i don't think anyone can argue we should be asking great questions, promote critical thinking both big and smart. how far is the moon and what's the name of your dog? and purple people principle number two is laugh a lot. work really hard. use your voice for yourself and for others but also listen. and then just be uniquely you. my partner, ben, loves to say to his kids, which i adore, learn as many stories about as many people as possible because it will only make your world bigger and our world better. >> that's beautiful. >> and that's really what the book is about at its core. celebrating, listening to people and understanding we all have
8:26 am
individuality in our own unique quirkiness and putting a place together to celebrate that. >> celebrating that. well, before we let you go, let you go, let you go -- ♪ go ♪ >> that was very brave, robin. >> "frozen 3." come on. >> i would love to officially with zero authority, i would love to officially announce it here. i would do it in a heartbeat. i love that family. >> idina menzel said she's in. she's ready. >> if we're both in, what are we waiting for? > zero authority. >> 100% zero authority but let's do it. >> we're happy you're here, though. >> thanks. >> kristen, thank you for sharing. "the world needs more purple schools" hits bookshelves everywhere tomorrow. do not miss it. we'll be right back.

"severance" is getting so much praise and well deserved but it's such a, frankly, such a strange, strange show. when you were first here at the premiere you said it freaked you out. >> we were a little freaked out. ben stiller, executive producer
8:31 am
and director of the show, and we were all a little freaked out because while we were making the show every day or two we would stop and look at each other and just be like this is so weird. what are people going to do with this? and luckily they really like it. >> like it enough for a second season. got picked up for a second season. so i know, as always, can't reveal too much, but is your character -- is there going to be a little romance, perhaps? >> if i say anything, ben stiller -- there will be a tranquilizer dart that will hit me in the neck and i'll slump over and you won't get anything else out of me. i just can't, i'm sorry. >> we always have to try. >> we have to try one more for the fans of the show. what can you tell us about the goats? >> you know what, the goats -- it's crazy. the goats is the number one question any of us have gotten the whole season and i can't -- all i can really say the goats, the baby goats, are very cute. >> that's it? >> what has surprised you most about the reaction to the show? >> that's a great question. i think just the passion and that's been -- and the fan theories that have emerged about the show. people have been really, really into it. it's been so gratifying, and we're all just so proud that
8:32 am
people have reacted the way they have. >> we all watched "parks and rec" and are loving "severance." i just learned in my notes this morning that you actually started out in "boy meets world." >> yeah. >> what do you remember about that? >> it was so long ago. it was my first time on like a real set like this where you're in a big building and then there's lights, and i just remember the craft service. i couldn't believe the food. i was a starving actor and i was like i'm taking this home with me. >> it was like a cafeteria. >> speaking of loving food, love the pictures of you and your family. you and your wife on vacation in italy. loved seeing them altogether. the one with you with the big sandwich you said was the best, the most delicious sandwich of your life? >> it really was. there's something about the food in italy, something magical because it was just bread and meat and lettuce and cheese.
8:33 am
we were on an italian airline and had spaghetti with red sauce and it was incredible on an airplane. there's something about -- something the italians do to their food that makes it unbelievable. >> and you don't gain weight. >> i can't disagree with you. you didn't take your kids on your trip to italy. any summer plans with the family? >> you know, jimmy kimmel has a fly-fishing trip that he does hopefully annually. he did it last year. we're going to do it this year. i cannot wait for that. we're all going to go. >> this one just went fly fishing. >> i went last week. didn't catch a thing. >> you didn't catch a thing? >> i'm looking at the trout. i just want to get a net and scoop them because they're not biting the lure. >> that's cheating. you can't do that. >> i was hungry. >> is there a skill to fly-fishing? >> there is. it takes a lot of patience. >> can you share what it is? it's so aggravating. >> my dad is a huge fisherman so i went fly-fishing as a little kid as well.
8:34 am
as a kid i got a little antsy and bored. i found as an old man i understand why. i understand the appeal now, and the solitude, the quiet, and just kind of staring at the water. i am not good at it but i kind of like just standing there. >> i do like the casting. >> i don't think you sold it. >> i don't think i have. >> there's some peacefulness. >> meditative. >> yes. >> thank you. that's way better, michael. >> not really. >> thank you for coming back. >> thanks, as always. >> "severance" is airing now on apple tv. coming up, important advice to help any business owner level up and the tiktok makeup tricks -- that was some transition right there.

8:38 am
teddy bear who is the tooth fairy's helper. like so many small business owners, she needed some help to boost business, so we brought in a pr expert to help. here is what happened over the last two months. it's tooth-beary's sidekick. >> this teddy bear fixes the fear of losing teeth and waking a child, but keeps the tooth in its magic heart. >> liz carroll, who i met with in april is the creator. >> this is your garage/warehouse. >> it is. >> reporter: as a first-time founder liz sharing the hurdles of growing her tooth bear-y business. >> the challenges have been, you know, the marketing end of it and for people to know that it's not just a teddy bear. you get a whole new magical tradition. >> reporter: so "gma" teaming
8:39 am
liz with author and pr expert jenna to develop strategies for success. >> what we'll be doing together is looking at the messaging so you'll be better positioned to increase your customer base, increase your profitability and scale the company to where you want it to be. >> reporter: over the past two months, liz and jenna meeting weekly, together building a new pr game plan, sharing tips any business owner can use to level up. first up, jenna says create a brand persona. >> the brand persona is the brand identity. it's who the company is, what they stand for, and that lays the foundation to all your other pr initiatives. for tooth bear-y we got to understand who their core customer is, what their brand purpose is. >> reporter: jenna teaching liz the art of the 30-second elevator pitch, to clearly and concisely define the product, something liz quickly mastered. >> tooth bear-y is -- can we start over? >> that's what we're here for. >> tooth bear-y offers a convenient twist to the tooth fairy tradition. >> liz, that is awesome.
8:40 am
i am so proud of you. >> reporter: next up, jenna says content is king. more importantly, work to make it personal. >> liz initiated a photo shoot and engaged more with her followers, so much so she increased the tooth bear-y follo followering on instagram to over 287%. my favorite part was when liz initiated an event at her local minor league baseball team stadium which created human contact with her local community. >> reporter: emphasizing the value of creating experiences to generate buzz. >> consumers are more than likely to make a purchase after they hear about it from a family or friend. so by liz creating a positive first impression she's creating a pipeline of future customers and a loyal fan base. >> reporter: liz now ready to take her business to new heights. >> since this journey, which i have sold hundreds of bears, there's been many, many hiccups along the way, but you can't give up on your dream. you have to push forward. >> keep pushing forward.
8:41 am
tooth bear-y is doing well. she's mastered tools like social media, making sure her content accurately reflects the brand in terms of creating a loyal fan base. jenna suggests creating a pr event similar to what liz did. jenna says it doesn't have to cost a lot of money and you should really make sure it benefits both parties. and you want to ensure an event has a high traffic footprint with your target audience and make sure it's local. locals love supporting locals. >> true. >> "you need pr" is available everywhere and you can read an excerpt on our website. for small businesses we're always pulling for them. if you keep it local like that, jenna did a great job with liz but also great suggestions for anyone who is starting a business. >> sure was. let's go over to ginger. >> michael was saying i covered every type of weather, not qui yet. don't worry, i got it here. you kn howooit bn last day of t

8:44 am
you're fighting it. instead of applying it left and right, you pull down and you're not fighting the wrinkles. you want to use something with more of a dense bristle and it will give you a nice, smooth application. >> reporter: finally, when contouring, lauren says it's all about changing the placement. >> as we age because contouring is going to provide that natural shadow to our face, too low on our face makes us look even older. placing your contour higher on your cheekbone gives you that instant cheek lift. >> so these are tips for people over 40. under 40 doesn't really matter. some of the trends we're starting to see on tiktok are all leaning much more towards that natural, clean makeup look. >> thank you. >> you want to look like it's your actual face not like it's painted on. >> like your actual face. i like that. eva, always looking flawless. thank you for the hack about
