5:34 pm
on. there is still through a range of approaches and tactics and partnerships with governors and leaders and civic leaders to get more people vaccinated. house gop leader kevin mccarthy says the white house needs to do a better job addressing public concerns. if people have questions about it. let's answer the questions. let's not say, oh, you can't put any information out. the white house says it's the latest data shows an increase in vaccinations in some problem areas and sees it as an encouraging sign reporting in washington. i'm basil john. >> right now, health officials are trying to calm nerves surrounding covid-19 breakthrough cases and that's when a fully vaccinated person contracts, the virus breaks through the vaccine. so far breakthrough cases are rare, but they certainly happen. but this does not mean the vaccines are not effective for baldwin joins us now with how the shots are holding up. well, grant vicki currently medical experts say breakthrough cases are not a major threat and they're also
