7:08 am
key aspect to pfizer's moderna's vaccine doesn't have to be stored at such extreme lee cold temperatures just normal freezers can handle it, which means a lot more hospitals and pharmacies especially in rural areas can handle the vaccine and distributed to people. the fda again expected to allow distribution perhaps as early as monday. so fingers crossed the come next week we'll have to manufacturers pushing out effective vaccine, happening today by the way and say in the south but we have santa clara county beginning to administer its stock of covid-19 vaccines to front-line workers. we have kron 4 sarah stinson on the story for us live from san jose good morning sara. >>yeah here at the santa clara county fairgrounds health care workers at skilled nursing facilities will be the first to receive the early doses of the pfizer vaccine in this county. it's going to be happening here at 9 o'clock and this is the first of many doses that will be heading to

7:26 am
>>they'll be answered in the next next couple years you also are not fully sure what was the best answer when everything's done will be the most effective will be the best tolerated will be best in specific populations like pregnant women and children. >>neither of those 2 vaccines would require the ultra-cold storage that pfizer moderna need and that is something doctors say is critical for global distribution and ease. >>we'll take a quick break here at 7.26 coming up next on the kron 4 morning news, there is major distrust though when it comes to the covid-19 vaccine will tell you why one city council person says that some of the latin x community. or a little hesitance about rolling up their sleeves to tell you why.

7:31 am
ramp from 5.80 west over to 80 east. it's a two-lane wrap the left lane is open the right lane is blocked, here's an overturned pickup truck and there's your tow truck on scene working to get it out of the way so a special traffic alert remains in place. this is impacting those of you who come from 5.80 this is 5.80 it's backed up to 24 and now it's backing up onto the 90 connector, the 24 connector as you merge onto 5.80 west trying to squeeze into emeryville because of that accident just before the ikea so heads up for that still blocking still slow. i'll let you know when it's out of the way we do have a backup here at the bay bridge toll plaza very busy into san francisco. it is slow. it is soggy. so watch your speed we're looking at 13 minutes to make it then we'll check more bridges coming up back to you. >>all right, thank you very much robin at 7.31 the bay area regions icu capacity has dropped under 13% which is triggered now the regional stay at home order so starting tomorrow morning the entire bay area will be shut down. most counties as we know
7:32 am
already issued the stay at home orders early but now the others will have to comply that includes san mateo napa solano santa cruz and monterey counties. they'll have to implement the order and it will stay in effect until january 7 th's which means 4 out of 5 regions across the state now are under the state's mandatory order and we're pretty much all in this together now it's getting worse day by day i see user near. >>capacity at most hospitals in l a they less than 2% of their icu beds available and the population is more than 10 million people nancy loo has more. >>it's the situation health officials had warned about but the reality is hitting hard now california reported another massive new record of nearly 54,000 covid cases and 293 deaths in just the past 24 hours. according to la county some ambulance crews have had to wait up to 6 hours to offload patients were going through perhaps the most intense. an urgent moment, the
7:33 am
governor is implemented the state's mass fatality program dispersing 60 refrigerated storage units to handle emergency overflow for march. he stressed another sobering fact and urging californians to stay home. >>we just had to order 5,000 additional body bags, they just purchased for the state and we just the state is bringing in hundreds of additional medical workers including 50 from the california national guard. >>and the strain on hospitals is expected to get even worse unfortunately. >>people are not really adjusting to the fact that this virus has spread and spread significantly more than it has in the past 9 months it's helped up to 2 million californians will be vaccinated in the next 2 months first and foremost the state's front-line workers but on another front union nurses are pushing back against a state program which allows hospitals to seek waivers on patient ratios forcing nurses to care for more patients. the
7:34 am
california nurses association claims it's a recipe for more deaths, the roll back those standards now means we are running from patient to patient. >>it means we do not have the time to respond to each patient's rapidly changing care condition to monitor their subtle changes that may mean living to see another day or dying on that day. >>right now the who should be next to get the covid vaccine. the state's vaccine advisory committee met yesterday to determine that new phase governor newsome. >>says about 8 million people are expected to be in that phase, including teachers. >>farm workers in grocery store employees. the committee's moderator says the group got more than a 100 pages of public comment from workers around the state wanting to be included. >>well u.s. officials are actively negotiating for additional supplies of pfizer's coronavirus vaccine after passing up the chance to buy them. this past summer they decided against doing it
7:35 am
because they said it was unclear at the time how well the shots would work, although there was a clause that said they would have to purchase it if the fda didn't authorize it. this is the situation we're in the federal government originally bought a 100 million doses from pfizer the government's now hoping to purchase that same amount and get it by at least the middle of next year there was no immediate comment from pfizer whose ceo said that it is working very collaboratively with the governor right now to deliver those additional vaccines. they're working through the federal government's operation warp speed program to try to get it done. it suggests to many people in the latin x community are less likely to trust the vaccine and that's why one san jose city council woman is out there right now trying to dispel dis-information. >>one of our biggest jobs is going to make sure to if the education out make sure that we inform people we have to be. >>very mindful that we're in a community that hasn't always trust what government says.
7:36 am
>>language literacy levels anti immigration rhetoric all some of the reasons why some of the community just don't trust the government when people don't have access to accurate information that's when they tend to rely on word of mouth which isn't always reliable and inaccurate social media platforms to which are fraught with this information media campaigns are being prepared right now not just to convince people that the vaccine is safe, but also to educate them about the possible side effects and other concerns. >>the fda is telling pharmacists not to throw away extra doses of the pfizer vaccine that are ending up and the viles one vile was supposed to hold 5 doses. that's according to the label but pharmacists are actually and given the shots in the arm they're saying hey there's some leftover in there they get 6 or even 7 doses out of that vile so the fda is saying use as much as you can don't throw it away and let it go as
