5:03 pm
we were like, okay, i think this might be true. it was she was one of the lucky ones. i think it's confirmed jealous of some 15 winners were announced last week. another 15 today. but today we are picking 15 $50,000 winners and i'm so excited in the newly chosen two winners from santa clara county and one each from san francisco, san mateo and alameda counties. but as the checks go out, the scammers apparently come out. the state says they've been notified of several so far. you should be skeptical when you get a call like that, experts say, use caution. try calling back the institution they claim to be phoning from. and remember, don't give out your social security number or bank information. they ask for personal information. that should be a red flag if they ask you to click a link. that should be a red flag. your your best bet is to again verify who's there. tony another of the winners took some convincing to i got the call last friday. at first i thought it was a joke, and i ignored it. officials say. don't do that. for the new winners.
5:04 pm
notification began immediately by phone with a live caller from a department of public health number, and officials say vax for the wind is working in california. 13% more people got vaccines this week than last. this program seems to have been effective in encouraging more people to get vaccinated. 40 million vaccines administered so far. 15.9 million more than any other state and governor. gavin newsom hopes that number goes up before the next lottery drawing on tuesday. encourage people that maybe on the fence take advantage of getting vaccinated so they can take advantage of the opportunity to win a million a half dollars. yeah so that big drawing is on tuesday, where 10 winners will be chosen and instead of winning $50,000 each, they will be winning 1.5 million each. state officials expect there will be a few extra people trying to get their shots between now and then. heather holmes why i imagine if anything is a motivator. it certainly is cash. all right,

5:07 pm
been in effect just over 40 weeks. here in the state of 40 long weeks will now despite the lifting of many orders, the governor will not end the covid-19 state of emergency, which gives him broad powers to issue executive orders that's been criticized by many of his opponents, especially those involved in the recall. newsom defense the decision, saying the virus is still out there and also because some of the orders have not yet ended. now, there have been a lot of questions about the cal osha guidance around masking in the workplace. newsom said that he would not hesitate to issue another executive order to bring cal osha in line with the state and cbc. we'll just have to see where that plays out. reporting live from the newsroom jana katsuyama ktvu fox two news that has been a bone of contention for a while. many people want clarification on that, jenna. thank you, al speaker nancy pelosi in san francisco today, stumping for president biden's two big spending plans. speaker pelosi was at the mission neighborhood

rate is 1.4 per 100,000 residents that is a 96% decrease since january. test positivity is at a half a percent and hospitalizations are at their lowest point since the pandemic began with 14 people hospitalized. well touted as one of the nation's first mass vaccination of testing site. san francisco will be shuttering the site appears 30 and 32 on tuesday. get to be as christian captain george us now live in christian city. health officials say they can make this move because it's really served its function now. yeah that's right. if you take a look, you can see that this high volume testing center is open for now, if you vehicles starting to leave, but with so many people vaccinated in san francisco, the city is saying it can begin a more targeted approach to testing rather than mass like this one, the once busy high volume testing site at piers, 30 and 32 on the embarcadero, just south of the bay bridge was quiet friday, health officials say. with covid rates dropping, they'll be closing this testing
5:31 pm
site june 15th. what we're doing is we're shifting our focus to those places in the city where we've seen the most case rates and so we are actually expanding hours, for example, an alum 80 and then continuing our neighborhood sites, health officials say when this site opened in april of 22 20. it was among the first mass testing sites in the nation at that time, close to 13.5% of tests came back positive. compare that to now, when only 200.6% of the tests are positive for covid 19 health leaders say the city's strategies of testing and now vaccinations are working. we are really looking at increasing our vaccine rates continuing to further those efforts and then targeting our testing to those places where there might continue to be under vaccination. city leaders announced that san francisco has officially reached 80% partial vaccination 70% of the city are fully vaccinated. that means once bustling mass vaccination sites like mosconi are quiet as well, but they're still open and operational
5:32 pm
looking to reach the remaining unvaccinated population. those who've been vaccinated say it's given them a sense of relief. i think i waited until it was my age group. um, i just wanted to be able to hang out with my parents and feel safe about it wanted to go back to work and feel safe about it. city health leaders say they learned how hard lessons that will make them better prepared for the next pandemic. and they say going into the fall and winter. the city will continue to test for covid-19 even as flu begins to spread through the city fathers generally works through the flu season. is that as you know, we get into the winter season, and there's a lot of different viruses circulating. i'm generally the healthcare systems do tests for different viruses, and, you know, it's expected that covid will be one of those viruses that get tested for this high volume testing site is conducted nearly a half million covid-19 tests and the city, says 99% of those patients got the results in just 36 hours. health experts say that quick turnaround was a critical step in slowing the spread of disease in the city. and
5:33 pm
there's one more good news piece of good news that the mayor just tweeted out about an hour ago, she said. in a tweet that there will be a live firework show in san francisco this year for july, 4th so certainly a lot to look forward to this summer, and certainly months ahead. hopefully we're live in san francisco christian captain ktvu fox two news. great way to celebrate the milestone that san francisco's reached christian. thank you so much. meantime four out of five mass vaccination sites in santa clara county. you're closing with nearly 80% of eligible county residents vaccinated there. the temporary emergency sites, including the side at levi stadium. well they're no longer needed. people who still need to get vaccinated can do so at pop up or mobile sites, retail pharmacies and healthcare clinics decided. santa clara county fairgrounds. well, that will remain open well with the state's grand reopening day. almost here, people have a lot of questions. let's welcome back to the show tonight, dr monica gandhi and infectious disease doctor there at ucsf and always a pleasure
5:34 pm
to see you a doctor. will it be business as usual here in california? come the 15th. you know, i think there'll be two major differences. one what you just reported on as we will be doing testing for a new virus. essentially the stars kobe to covid virus. when we go into the winter will be tested in like rsv like influenza. there'll be places that have not as high vaccination rates that we will have to treat covid. but yes, i mean this kind of level of population immunity means. business goes back to normal and it should. there will be still masks around, and that will be have to be sorted out over time. right now. the rule is, um vaccinated. people don't have to wear masks and unvaccinated do you mentioned about the testing sites closing, but you also mentioned that testing efforts will continue. why is that still important? you know, we don't think that we're going to eradicate this virus, but what we've done is created a situation where it becomes a routine low love are low level
5:35 pm
virus that we can live with. so compare it more to measles, for example, which you haven't even heard of for a while, but we think about an infectious disease and influenza. i don't even think it's going to be like influenza because i think our vaccine is going to last longer than the influenza vaccine. but every year, seasonal viruses happened more in the winter. and if someone comes in and they're sick, and they have a respiratory infection, we're going to test them for influenza for respiratory syncytial virus for lots of other things, and covid will be one of them. and then we in the health care system will treat appropriately and it depends on if we can get even more vaccination. we're not going to see a lot of it. honestly if people don't we don't have pockets of unvaccinated 80% 1st dose in san francisco is as good as it gets. yeah, that certainly is remarkable there in the city. i want to move on now to reports of heart inflammation. and young people after receiving their second dose of the vaccine. what do you make of this preliminary data? so really? it was yesterday when we got a better look at this
5:36 pm
because they were circulating reports but yesterday essentially what there was an fda meeting where what's called the v e. r s. the vaccine adverse effect reporting system put all the cases together. there have been 460 reports of heart inflammation and young people after the vaccine, but actually 226 of them look like they were real. they are real. they do happen more in young people. they are more than the expected heart inflammation that we see around this time. so there is an elevation in young people in young men. young boys and especially after the second dose. so the chip, which is the cdc is going to meet on friday. the 18th and there are five possibilities. what will happen? one is likely not to happen. they're not going to suspend vaccination young people, but they may go to one dose like israel did. they may reduce the dose and discuss that because it's the same dose he used for young people is used for adults. they may put a warning label on it,
5:37 pm
or they may um uh, extend the duration between the two doses. i think they're going to do something because this is a true signal. yeah obviously many things for them to go through, but they also have several options to deal with it. final question for you, doctor parents out there who may be hearing this news who might now be concerned about getting their children vaccinated? what is your message to them. you know, we still want to vaccinate children. um the issue is in these younger groups. just the 12 to 15. we may want to extend the dose or do one does, so let's see what they say next week, but vaccinating this group eventually is important for the pandemic because the more we get immunity. the more we're just going to get rid of this thing, and then later we'll do trials and we're doing the trials, but we'll see what happens with a very young kids before rolling it out. okay, we'll have to wait and see what happens next week at that meeting, dr monica gandhi really appreciate it. have a
5:38 pm
nice weekend. thank you. the vaccination rate continues to slow here in the us the wall street journal reports, in fact, that the cdc has stopped new shipments of johnson and johnson's covid-19 backseat. now it comes after 11 day pause caused a backlog of the single shot. state and local leaders are now getting creative and creating pop up clinics like santa clara county and vaccinating people at their home or even businesses our goal right now with this program is to make sure that we take away any barrier that's making people not get vaccinated right now, so if you call us will come to you, no matter where you're at and get you vaccinated. the fda has now extended the expiration date for johnson and johnson vaccines as millions of doses go on. he used all right tonight. oracle park in san francisco, kicking off the first ever pride movie night. it's two nights of fun there at the ballpark with movies shown right there on the screen in center field. there will also be live in virtual entertainment. and, of course in popcorn tonight, it is the
