announcer: building a better bay area. moving forward, finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. kristen: vaccine advisors to the centers for disease control voted today to recommend booster doses of both the moderna and johnson & johnson vaccines. it is important to community members broadly agreed that people who got the j&j vaccine need a second vaccination, saying it is less effective than the moderna and pfizer. covid cases are spiking in the u.k., where there are new restrictions, hitting a new three month-high. countries in western europe especially russia, are also battling infections as well. the cdc says far more people are getting booster shots each day
4:30 pm
than those receiving first shots of the vaccine. even so, officials are word that the number of people getting booster shots is below expectations. reporter tim johns has the concerns. tim: pfizer booster shots are currently available for anyone 65 and older as well as those with underlying conditions, but officials in santa clara county say there booster rollout is off to a slow start. >> we haven't seen as many as we thought would respond. i think we have seen, on our dashboard, about 71,000 people for a booster shot so far. tim: those 70,000 represent 5% of the 1.5 million people who got their original shots in the county, and although that statistic is slightly skewed due to only pfizer recipients being eligible so far, santa clara officials what the numbers to increase. >> i think perhaps people are still wondering whether they should, there may be some confusion. tim: to address that confusion
4:31 pm
the county is trying to get more booster information out to the public conveying the message that although the original vaccine series is highly effective data shows its effectiveness does seem to wane over time. >> just like we get flu shots every year and sometimes you have to get a new tetanus shot, the efficacy of the vaccine begins to wear off a little bit, so we have to boost it up. tim: similar views also shared by dr. michael wasserman who said on california's vaccine advisory committee. he said well experts will eventually figure out the exact frequency of boosters like they have further vaccines, taking one and now is a good idea. >> the booster shot can only be helpful. i don't see any real downside to it. tim: santa clara county has set up numerous vaccination sites, and shots are also available at doctors offices as well as pharmacies. in san jose, tim johns, abc 7 news.
4:32 pm
dan: dr. patel is a key member of our vaccine team. he joins us live. hello, great to see you. dr. patel: dan, great to see you as well. the commitment for meeting with you, i am in the middle of my dentist appointment and i am here for you. [laughter] dan: how is the novocaine? dr. patel: i am just getting my pearly whites taken care of. note novocaine. [laughter] dan: how concerned are you about the low turnout of people getting the booster shot? it seems to be raining. what do you attribute that to? dr. patel: to several things. i think some of the confusion about who needs to get a booster, one in which population and which shot itself contributed. in terms of concern, i am concerned about those who are highly vulnerable, or in communities where there is a lower level of vaccination, higher transmission, or people in high-risk jobs.
4:33 pm
as a whole, i feel optimistic that once we get the final declaration from cdc director walensky, and more health professionals know how to roll these out and to whom, we will boost the numbers out. no pun intended. dan: ok. the rain is rolling in, a reminder that winter is approaching quickly. are you concerned or should we be concerned that we could see another surge because winter weather is here? dr. patel: that is definitely a possibility. the case that people are talking about right now that is happening in the united kingdom, they had a high vaccination rate. people got vaccinated a little earlier than they did in other countries. but also, they have been fully open. no masks, everyone living like normal times, for about three months, and a low amount of vaccination among teens. it is entirely possible that we could run into the same trouble in the winter. also, people getting together for the holidays, getting around the thanksgiving tables, the
4:34 pm
holiday tables in december. that is something we have our roes on. anne wsome ibody else who is high-r, needs to be paying attention that they are getting their booster, or their primary covid shot, for their flu shot. dan: the new pfizer study shows that the efficacy of the booster shot can bring it up to 95%. that is a great level of protection. how important is that? dr. patel: it is a great level of protection, dan and to be completely honest with you when i looked through the findings for pfizer 95%, that is important but what was even more for my opinion is that of the 10,000 people enrolled in the trial there were no at-risk effects recorded no concern for the group getting the booster. that is the question i have been getting from people, asking, how do we know if this will be safe in the long term if we don't have trials of people getting the third shot. so that is another finding that
4:35 pm
actually should be reported. the 95% is great and we know that boosters will work. the fact that they are safe is just the cherry on top. dan: no question. the white house yesterday agreed to rollout vaccines for children ages five to 11, pending fda authorization. it would be through primary care doctors as well as clinics and pharmacies. explain why a different approach for kids is necessary. dr. patel: i actually think this approach, to some degree, should have been taken earlier when we rolled the vaccines out to adults and to teens. where our parents going for their trusted information? they are going to community health providers, to the pediatricians and family doctors, where the dialogue needs to happen. and where the vaccine is to be distributed. this makes it easier to make sure we are reaching more communities lower social economic, rural, inner cities, all of it. we want to make sure we have a
4:36 pm
very efficient way to roll these vaccines out when they are approved. we are not trying to play catch-up. remember the bottlenecks in january. dan: exactly. dr. patel, thank you and thank, you to your dentist for letting you step away. . are you a good patient in the dentist chair as a doctor? dr. patel: the dental hygienist, laura, thinks i am a great patient he. she said your teeth look pretty good. [laughter] dan: not granting, and remembering to floss. kristen: good information and good teeth. [laughter] all right. some of the biggest phobias ac

[laughter] i will send postcards. kristen: don't get one of those inside state rooms. with $60,000, you are probably getting in the window. dan: one of the big changes for the pandemic is the way many of us choose to shop. more people than ever started to get groceries delivered but now that pandemic rules have eased, what are people doing? a new survey finds that shoppers prefer to pick up groceries. 70% said they prefer store pickup. the shoppers said the main reason was to avoid higher delivery fees and surcharges. certainly, it is convenient, but it does cost a good bit
