12:33 pm
science is going. nevertheless was a bit of a bold move and was interesting that the cdc made a statement on this dr peter chin hong is an infectious disease specialist from uc san francisco, he says. while it's a bold piece of guidance from the cdc, bold guidance is exactly what the world wants to hear. is completely appropriate and welcomed. in fact, if you just didn't say something both like this, i think people will be disillusioned and we'll get back to that whole. um um you know, aspect of pandemic resentment. for some, the idea of letting go precautions is an unusual one. you haven't even got to get to get used to it because you've been doing this for months and months wearing masks, but it's kind of relieving that you can possibly do that and kind of get back to normal. but the idea of a vaccine working the way experts had hoped is the most exciting day vaccine and we've actually all the data seems to show off. so that once you're vaccinated, you can't shouldn't it to other
12:34 pm
people while it's not guaranteed to prevent transmission, dr chin halling says evidence has prue of the vaccine does help prevent asymptomatic case is welcome news, considering asymptomatic patients typically transmit maura the virus, but some local governments are still taking it slow. the san francisco department of emergency management released this statement to ktvu saying, in part to date fewer than one in 10 san franciscans are fully vaccinated. therefore we recommend the vaccinate people continued to wear a mask over their nose and mouth when they're in public and to follow the other health precautions. when get gathering with unvaccinated people, some of whom may be at high risk of serious illness. cdc guidance does say if they fully vaccinated person starts to feel symptomatic, then a covid-19 test is advised. they have. to beyond the lookout for like, you know, maybe that cold is not a cold. maybe it's like a variant that has been described yet, and you should go and get tested. still this guidance is welcome news for
12:35 pm
all and a step in the right direction toward a sense of normalcy. i love you, too. i'm james torres, ktvu fox two news. meanwhile, the u. s. is no one pays to reach herd immunity by the summer estimates and model show about two million americans are getting vaccinated every day if this pace continues, or ramps up, 70% of the population should be fully vaccinated by the end of july, 85% by mid september. a major concern now is that if enough people choose not to get vaccinated, that could change things. in a poll last month, 38% of americans said they don't want the covid vaccine. the bay area's largest county is now opting out of the state's new blue shield vaccination program. santa clara county executive jeff smith says the county does not plan to sign the agreement with blue shield. now, he says the county already has its own vaccine appointment system that works better than the states. my turn system, smith added that blue shield would add another layer of bureaucracy with no apparent benefits. more

and more people who were vaccinated at the oakland coliseum mass vaccination site last week did receive less than records. mended doses, the state health department tells ktvu that 6300 people are being notified. they received the fizer vaccine last sunday and monday. the lower dosage was all due to the design of certain syringes that did not push out all the vaccine, according to health officials. anyone who received the vaccine on those two days on lee need to make sure that they get that second dose. in order to be fully protected. people are lining up this noontime for covid vaccinations on the peninsula. a vaccine clinic is open on euclid avenue in east palo alto. san mateo county is running this clinic in partnership with the ravenswood family health center, the city these palo alto and y m c. a of silicon valley. it's open to eligible people 65 up essential workers in healthcare, food and agriculture, education, child and emergency responders. city officials are encouraging people to come out and get their shots and they're telling them they should trust that. vaccine when you put a shot in
12:37 pm
somebody's arms, you're trusting the people who are giving you that shot. and so they have people who are trusted intermediaries, church leaders, matriarchs people who are well known to give that message to say this is part of getting back to normal. this is some conspiracy. this is actually is going to be what it takes for us to be healthy, again. clinic will be open until seven p.m. another vaccine clinic will open in the area on saturday at the aneta harris community center in menlo park. several bay area lawmakers are now expressing their concern about the state's vaccination distribution plans. state health agencies recently announced that they plan to reserve 40% of california's vaccine supply for economically disadvantaged communities. but many lawmakers say they believe the hardest hit regions of the bay area will not get their fair share vaccines under this current program any time you do a statewide. formula. um you're gonna have some unintended kong consequences that you need toe work address, and that's what's
12:38 pm
happening in some of our communities we've had as high a rate as you know, 15% in a single census track testing positive for covid-19. and on any met metric that you use santa clara county has been profoundly hit by covid-19. both supervisors, chavez and state senator weiner say they've been in direct contact with governor newsome's office in there, now confident the state will soon make some changes in response to their concerns. volunteer opportunities that covid-19 vaccination sites are quickly starting to fill up. last week, the state launched the my turn. volunteer website so more medical staff and general support volunteers could sign up. the state is also providing vaccinations as a possible payment. two volunteers, general volunteers have to be 18 or older. have a government issued i d and go through training volunteers qualified for a shot after a four hour shift and approval from a clinic administrator. state says more sites will become available, but right now it's
