6:00 pm
tomorrow walgreens says people eligible for the shots can schedule appointments starting tomorrow as well and several bay area counties announcing they're ready to go some may bring back those mass vaccination sites that we saw earlier this year abc 7. reporter stephanie sierra is tracking new developments. she's in the newsroom for steph yes, dan the last major work group meeting has just wrapped up before the state will finalize its implementation of sea guidance and we're told covid booster shots will likely be rolling out across most bay area counties by next week and for some pharmacies like cvs starting today. in the final stretch of the covid booster timeline, california just hours away from adopting the cdc's guidance giving the green light to counties across the state recommendations. i'm sure will be provided to the respective governors over the next you know, 24 hours stanford infectious disease physician, dr. grace lee is a voting member on the cdc's advisory committee
6:01 pm
on immunization practices. the state is moving forward with a plan that will advise counties how distribution will work to prioritize anyone 65 and older long-term care facility residents and people with under medical conditions or who are at high risk, like healthcare workers high risk can be interpreted as a pretty broad category. does this mean essentially anyone who feels at risk can go and get the shot my understanding at this moment. is that similar to what's been done in the past? it'll be self attestation at most sites self attestation means you don't need a doctor's note to get a booster shot. but simply a test to the fact you meet the eligibility requirements. you see sf's chief of emergency medicine dr. maria raven. concerned some may abuse that depending on people's judgment about what their own risk is. i definitely think there's a room for people to overstuff and for it to be a little bit of a free-for-all with boosters and that may happen abc 7 confirmed all nine bay area counties will be working with medical partners to open a network of vaccination
6:02 pm
sites ranging from doctors offices clinics to pharmacies in san francisco the health department plans to administer 25,000 doses per week across a hundred sites. that will be within a 15 minute walk in every neighborhood. we now know the vaccine doesn't need to be stored and negative 80 degrees in a special freezer. it makes distribution much easier meantime, and we're in county a large indoor vaccination clinic is aiming to reopen by next week. it won't be a mass vaccination site. they'll be multiple people getting vaccinated again. we're aiming for 1500 people today preparations are underway to reopen the san mateo county event center as a mass site within days if smaller run clinics become overwhelmed in of the matter of a few days most counties anticipate peak demand will last for about a month as health departments work to get doses to those eligible groups, but dr. lee really stressed. there's no need to rush out today to get a shot if you're not past that six-month mark of your second dose among those priority groups and thankfully
6:03 pm
for this rollout. supply here locally will not be an issue stephanie sierra abc 7 news. yeah, steph can let's talk a little bit more about the self attestation. strict are these clinics and pharmacies actually going to be you know, dan. this is not very strict. we know even before. for this guidance came out people have already been getting additional doses at local pharmacies or directly with their provider, but dr. lee was quick to point out the list of what's considered high risk is going to be continuing to change and that the bottom line is if you feel you are at risk, whatever your situation may be you can just show up and of that and we'll get the shot. hey, tristan. all right, stephanie. thank you. booster shots are just beginning or have they already that's something dr. alok patel. of our abc 7 news vaccine team explained when we talked to him on abc 7 news at 4 booster shots have already been given out before. recommendations and you know, i have a feeling that these pharmacies are gonna be overrun from people who might be scared
6:04 pm
from the headlines not be worried about their situation and are just going to go out. i don't know if they're actually checking to see if you meet the criteria and people have already started to mix and match vaccines as well. so i think the underlying thing is that people are gonna do ultimately what they feel is best for themselves, but also we need to be focusing on the unvaccinated we're still driving cases. it's not those women vaccinated any boosters who need to focus right now. well a bizarre situation played out on the view today. there seems to be something happening here that i'm not 100% aware of can someone please a prize me of these situation? the two of you to step off for a second. okay, anna and and we're gonna be back later have okay. yes. really strange it turns out co-host sonny hostin and anna navarro. ana navarra should say both tested positive for cases of covid they had to be removed from the set moments before they were to interview vice president kamala harris as a safety precaution. harris was not loud to go on set
6:05 pm
and producers delayed the interview until harris could get to a remote location. save spot run valuerun valuerune you joy and to everyone and listen. i did i sunny and anna are strong women and i know they're fine, but it really also does speak to the fact that they're vaccinated and vaccines really make all the difference because otherwise we would be concerned about hospitalization. the view airs here on abc 7 at 10 am every weekday in one week, san jose is going to enforce a stricter vaccination mandate for all city employees and today there was considerable pushback about the rules abc 7 news reporter dustin dorsey explains how the city and employees continue to work on a resolution. what do we want? when do we want it freedom choice? no more mandates a clear message from dozens of people rallying in front of san jose city hall.
6:06 pm
october 1st, all city employees must be vaccinated against covid-19 as a condition of their employment. the problem is is that they don't give you a choice so we have to come up and to try a toa get some of our rights back our rights have been taking away except for everyone that we don't have a choice and we're gonna be terminated because of what the government wants to do to our body? so firefighters and police officers are part of the mandate the san jose police officers association told abc 7 quote. we are an ongoing negotiations with the city over the potential catastrophic impacts to safety of san jose residents if there is a mass exodus of sworn officers, they say most city workers can be hired off the street, but it takes up to two years to train police officers. 7% of sjpd is vaccinated or in the process of think vaccinated
6:07 pm
91% of firefighters and all other city employees already submitted their proof of vaccination. despite the opposition the city says they are moving forward with their mandate. it's important to know that the reason why we're doing this is to keep our workforce and our community safe from covid. essential that we be able to provide services to our community without having an outbreak san jose will use a staggered disciplinary system starting october 1st, so they won't lose too many employees at once in san jose dustin dorsey abc 7 news. and if you have any questions about covid-19 vaccines you can ask them of our vaccine team. just go to abc 7 news com slash vaccine click on that big blue box you see and along with a public health crisis the covid-19 pandemic of course is also created an economic crisis in the united states. weight and around the world a statewide eviction moratoriums end next week and an attempt to extend those aquariums narrowly failed in contra costa county,
6:08 pm
but help is still available abc 7 news reporter. ryan curry has a look at what you can do. in a tight three to two decision the contra costa county board of supervisors voted to lift the eviction moratorium put in place by the pandemic. this means on september 30th, some people who have not found rent relief could find themselves facing eviction if the state runs out of rental relief funding then there's really no protection for people who can't pay their rent. john julia was one of the supervisors who voted to keep the moratorium in place. he worries lifting the moratorium will hurt those most impacted by the pandemic. we're hard hit communities suffer greater impact, for example african-american and latino latin. next communities are harder hit by this pandemic in terms of impact on finances with resources like the emergency rental assistance program or e-wrap some board members think the moratorium is no longer needed. we're not quite there with the equilibrium. you know, we have more demand for employees in some sectors
6:09 pm
and fewer in others, but people can start working again. according to california's rent relief program. housing is key many californians are still in need of rental assistance in september. they are reporting a 14.8% increase in applications for rent assistance and a 17.8% increase in demand for rental funds deborah bollinger is with monument impact and helps with rental. she fears that a lot of people will be impacted by this decision in contra costa and i'm honest familiar with other counties. that money will will be running out eventually. if worse comes to worst eviction moratorium could get put back in by the board and that's something that boasts supervisors would be for they're just wanting to see what is going to happen with the pandemic, especially with winter on the way in the east bay ryan curry abc 7 news as the end of the eviction moratorium approaches 7 on your side is here to help. you can reach them on our website. just go to abc 7 news com slash 7 on your side and tonight
