    ABC's Alex Stone -  As of today, vaccine proof is required to enter some places in the nation's most populated county.  10 million people live in Los Angeles County and now they have to show they have been vaccinated to enter a bar, winery, nightclub or lounge.  And as of today proof of the vaccine or a recent negative test is required to enter a large event like a Dodgers or Lakers game or a concert.  Beginning next month in the city of LA vaccine proof will be required to enter restaurants, shopping centers, and entertainment venues.  Supporters of vaccine mandates say there is strong evidence they work in other countries and at places like United Airlines where a mandate caused over 99% of employees to get vaccinated.  Critics claim they don't work and rob Americans of their freedoms.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    ABC's Alex Stone - Today Pfizer officially asked the FDA to approve their COVID-19 vaccine for children 5 to 11 years old. The process will now begin, like previous approvals, which includes non-binding panels of doctors meeting to discuss the vaccine in children. They will make recommendations to the FDA and CDC.

The FDA's panel will meet on October 26th.  Pfizer will be a two shot regimen but the amount of mRNA going into their bodies will 1/3 the dose of adults.   See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

    Illinois State Rep. Kelly Cassidy has introduced a bill that allows any resident to sue someone who “causes an unintended pregnancy” or commits domestic assault. As with Texas's law, this could include anyone from an Uber driver to a bartender, but the Illinois version has a special twist. If the litigant wins their lawsuit against the person “causing” the unwanted pregnancy, they are entitled to $10,000. Half of the money would be placed in a state fund meant to pay for abortions for people in Texas who can't get them in their home state. How often do you check your phone?

YouTube says it is banning all videos with vaccine misinformation and removing a number of prominent anti-vaccine accounts.
