we are inching our way towards the weekend and a lot of people are wondering about the forecast. spencer, it looks really nice. spencer: feels like we're are inching back to spring. really nice and mild. i mentioned yesterday this ridge of high pressure, a controlling factor in our weather. causing the steering current over the storm track to go to our north. we have sunny and mild and even warm for the stem of the year weather. temperatures in the area locations are 3-6 degrees warmer than they were yesterday. we had a look from mount tam but the camera shot went down. it was a great view. 66 degrees right now in san francisco and oakland. low 70's in mountain view and san jose. 63 at half moon bay. the view from emeryville shows clear skies the golden gate and beyond. 72 in santa rosa. 68 at novato and napa. concord, 69. livermore, 67.

larry: the two-week long global climate summit wraps up in scotland, we are turning our attention to the bay area landfills, which continue to be filled up with plastic that cannot be recycled. abc 7 news reporter david lui to access inside a peninsula tech company that has developed a process to address this problem. david: many of us recycle. it is a commitment we make to be good and environmental stewards. however, you may be surprised. >> most of the time in america is going to landfills where, it ends up being buried. david: miranda is the cofounder and ceo of an organization.
. she is referring to plastic. specific examples of nonrecyclable plastic include shipping mailers, shampoo bottles bubble wrap,. and tarps organization has developed technology that can make it better. she calls it >> we put the plastic there, reactions that break it down into, building blocks. they look like a white powder. like table salt. david: from that, it creates a material a thermal polyurethane that is stronger than the original plastic. it can be used for running shoes, cable shieldingm even auto components. it addresses the dumping of plastics that miranda says can take thousands of years to decompose. >> we are leading an entire new era where society can look at ways and say, heym that can become a shoem that can become a carm and come up with different ways that we can keep the material in play.

announcer: building a better bay area. moving forward, finding solutions. this is abc 7 news. larry: covid headlands now. some states are reporting an autumn wave of covid-19 infections, even in areas with high vaccination rates. those states are all adjacent to one another starting from arizona to minnesota. walgreens says it has given shots to more than 200 thousand children ages five to 11, with hundreds of thousands of appointments on the books. and we research shows that vaccines in the u.s. remain highly effective get severe disease and hospitalization, but their protection against infection with or without symptoms, is waning? >> if you think you will benefit from getting a booster shot, we encourage you to get supplies available. there are many sites across the state, thousands available to help provide you your booster. it is not too late to get it
this week, and get the added protection for the thanksgiving gatherings. kristen: all right. if you are eligible for booster, get a booster. that is the message from california's health secretary. bay area health officials say it is easy to understand why some people may be confused about who is eligible for booster shot. cdc guidelines right now recommend, only people 65 or older or those in certain high-risk categories, or those who live and work in certain places get a booster at this time. but local officials are saying, why wait? dr. alok patel is a member of our vaccine team. he joins us today to clear up some of these confusing points. people are hearing different things. i have a feeling that they are pretty much saying similar things, the messaging is different. so clear it up for us, who should be getting a booster right now? dr. patel: you are right, people are confused right now.
but we have heard different messages, since the white house came out and said everyone should get vaccinated. i agree with the current message from the california department of health -- if someone out there feels they are at high risk because of the community they live in, or because of their job, they should go and get a booster. the cdc criteria is very broad. i personally know people who didn't technically fit the criteria but said, i am concerned so i will get a we will see the tide turned when pfizer gives more data related to that 10,000 person trial that shows that, yes, everyone would benefit from a vaccine efficacy standpoint, by getting a booster. kristen: like you said, it has already been broad. by pegging it to underlying medical conditions, and then having the concerns, anyone can just walk in and say i have a concern, right? i want to get a booster. people will not be turned away for that, right?
dr. patel: they will not, they haven't been. even though we recommend people follow the guidelines, people are getting boosters ahead of time. i think where the conversation is shifting, is the original data was focused on who is high-risk, and who needs to actually get a booster because they are either likely to get exposed or they have an underling illness. will now, we are talking more about transmission. people who may not be exposed every day to actually prevent transmission, that is a different topic. still encompassed in the whole conversation of getting everyone a boost. i think europe is a warning sign of what may potentially happen if we let waning immunity go across the place and we don't get ahead of it in time. kristen: in fact i was talking to a state health officials today about the combination of waning immunity when you consider when people got the shots and it has been eight months for a lot of them and the winter, the first winter with
delta. not in the bay area, but in some parts of california, some hospitals are full just with noncovered things. so they are opening it up to say, if you want it, get it. do you think that is the right approach now, given that we have the winter coming up? dr. patel: absolutely. you listed many factors that we have to pay attention to this winter in terms of the potential wave. one thing we didn't mention what is complacency in people who are done with this that do not want to wear our mask anymore. and also the fact that we still have a huge amount of people that need to get vaccinated. so you are not only protecting yourself, but also the realization that people are over. the restrictions they are glad you brought up the fact that we still have hospitals full. that is where we operate at baseline. now with the shortage of health care professionals, hospitals are jampacked right now. i am working in an icu the other night, and the three icus in the area are all full, figuring out where we can transport children.
we do not have capacity for another surge this winter. kristen: so basically would you suggest especially those who got the johnson & johnson and the cdc does allow them to get it right away, but everybody else if they got pfizer and would dare not -- and moderna, they should just get it? dr. patel: i would suggest it if you have a specific concern, get it. if you have questions, which out to a health care professional. you are doing this to protect everyone around you. if you are old and you have an asymptomatic or mild illness, the person you potentially spread it to may not be so lucky. kristen: ok. even if you don't have a concern, should you just go and get it if you are over 18? dr. patel: at this point, yes. you should just go out and get it. [laughter] . kristen: dr. alok patel, great. dr. patel: make it happen. yes. kristen: thank you. larry: coming up, a taste of

thanksgiving is around the corner, and this tasty thursday, we are digging into thanksgiving dinner. however, this one is a little different, because dinner is ice cream.

[laughter] you were inspired thanksgiving dinner with these flavors.
what goes into making an ice cream taste like a savory meal? tyler: for us we want to capture the holidays. their so much magic during the holidays. specifically, the energy with your friends and family, together over good food. there is something like that ingredient that goes into the ice cream. for us it was a real challenge to figure out how to put turkey flavor without weird. we wanted to figure out how we can capture our pastry skills around caramelizing things and can decoding things. in this case we went with the turkey bacon from california that we love, and roasted down a little bit and quotcoat it. kristen: it is so creative. but it is not that much of a stretch for you. i have been to a couple of your locations, and i have always detected a nice saltiness, in a beautiful way, that brings out
the flavors in the ice cream. spencer: i got the parker house rolls with salted cream. i am loving it! it is fantastic. that is my take on it. , because i don't like supersweet things. i like the saltiness. tyler: usually it is just bread. it is so good. kristen: now that you did it in made it, it is obvious. i don't think it was obvious to a lot of people. that is what is creative about your flavors. even outside of the holiday period, i know that you have like, lavender, all sorts of cool things -- rosemary, things you don't think would go with ice cream, but they work great. tyler: we change our menu every four. the first friday of every month, you have people lining up out the door to be the first to try them. they tell provocative stories. they can be fun and off-the-wall like thanksgiving, but sometimes we actually get a bit more
in-depth working with our communities on the stories. january for example we have a whole line of, begin flavors, all different cupcakes --a whole line of vegan flavors. all different cupcakes. we have folks to talk about what education looks like in the post-covid world. there are some really fun storytelling that we tell to the ice cream. larry:. larry: you mentioned every four weeks. are you working on a christmas-oriented menu? thanksgiving items will go away and we will transition to christmas? tyler: we have some really cool promotions. one of our best friends is called -- his name is the rock. kristen: what! larry: ron johnson? tyler: we have been working on a special holiday flavor. kristen: what is it taste like? tyler: there are a couple of flavors. one is naughty and one is nice.
