9:07 pm
and if i was through all that and we're going to get as many people as we can a drive-thru clinic will be held over the weekend a lot by ad aimed for seniors who don't live in nursing homes anr risk of falling through the cracks more than a 100 health care volunteers will vaccinate adults ages, 75 and older. >>according to the u.s. census bureau data nearly 9.5 million seniors, 65 and older lack internet access local nonprofits will assist seniors making appointments online and providing transportation to the clinic for those who needed with the slow vaccine rollout across the state and bay area. >>doctor parish hopes this weekend's drive-thru clinic will be a model to others it just seems unconscionable to me that we would have doses and not give them to the people. >>who are at highest risk. >>the drive-thru clinic will open 08:00am tomorrow at stanley middle school here in lafayette once again and this will go on through the weekend until everyone who registered
9:08 pm
get their shot. it is by appointment only. and right now the register free registration is full so there is a wait list and we'll post that link on our website live in lafayette gayle ong kron 4 news. all right carol, thank you very much will of the 31 million vaccine doses that have been distributed to states. >>only 12 million of actually been administered to people so a lot of americans are wondering. what is the hold up to help us try to make sense of the issues we welcome in doctor bob wachter chair of the department of medicine at ucsf leading pandemic expert. >>in the u.s. see also has a new job and we'll get to that momentarily. doctor wachter thanks for being with us on a friday night i presume in i don't know a couple months you'll be on here talking about how people need to trust the vaccine and go get vaccinated but at this point you have more people who want it who can't get it. what do you see as the one or 2 biggest problems here.
9:09 pm
>>i think you're raising one of the most interesting things about the vaccine. we will have this period over the next 2, 3, months. >>there there is a massive demand and inadequate supply and then so time i think it's probably going to be april or we will >>into having an effect seen in trying to assure the people that people get it. the problem so far has been that the we've not reverse the last mile very well meaning the government today amazing job getting these vaccines produce incredibly safe amazingly effective vaccines. and did a nice job getting them out into the communities with the trucks and the airplanes. but to many see if your last speaker said are sitting in freezers and vaccines. >>the fact that nationally about 30 to 35% of the vaccine doses that have been distributed have been injected is really pretty terrible in california is doing slightly worse. the national average so we actually have to fix that it's an emergency where 4,000
9:10 pm
people a day are dying. and every person who could get a shot today and doesn't may get sick in a couple weeks in the fa some of them will die so we have to really step up the tempo here. >>doctor any thoughts on how to simplify things i mean we're hearing politicians governor newsome president elect biden basically assuring us there are plans it will get better. are there ways to simplify what we're doing what's the what is the problem. >>well, the problem is it is complicated. we didn't plan for it adequately i think we have treated it as almost a routine matter getting it and you see a lot of clinics the go 8 to 5 monday through friday. we're not treating this as a as a national emergency in a state of emergency. as it is. so the the the solution is is everything we need more clinics, we need them to be more accessible. we need more people to be doing injecting in all of the other things that have to be done. we're going to need more vaccine. but that is not the problem.
9:11 pm
that we're facing today. many of the vaccination sites are in hospitals in their hospitals are overwhelmed with covid patients so we need to move them out into the communities into into the the pharmacies in 2. into football stadiums into parking lots all of that seems to be happening. but it really took too long you know just in the past couple days we're hearing about big plans at the state level. we're now hearing about big plans at the federal level the people president biden has been in charge of this are fantastic and it really feels like for the first time that i recall in the pandemic we're being treated as adults were being told the truth we're being told what the plans are that gives me a lot of hope. >>doctor one layer of this people who are suggesting they don't want it they're not going to get it but there's a concern that there will be a lot of focus on those people while some argue paxson 8 the people who are willing. i worry about cajoling the rest of them down the line. >>yeah in the short term i think that it's important that
9:12 pm
we do both things week we vaccinate as many people as we possibly can and during the time that we have a supply-demand mismatch the key thing is just get everybody there are plenty of people or hundreds of millions of people that want to be vaccinated we've got have to get vaccinated at the same time we have to be controlling is probably not right it's really giving people the information they need so that they make the right choice i just got my second shot tonight. it's to me it was even close what the right choice was and and the edge because the vaccine is 95% safe. 95% effective in terms of preventing case of covid nearly a 100% effective in preventing serious cases of covid and extraordinarily safe at ucsf we've now given over 20,000. vaccinations and we have had a couple of cases of allergies where people had to take benadryl and that's it. vaccination so i think people
9:13 pm
will come to this some people say that i want to wait a little bit that's ok because other people are waiting for their vaccine and they they will grab it. but i think over time most people will say you know i can take my chances with covid killing 4,000 people a day where i can get this miraculous and safe vaccine. i think most people are going to come and believe that it's the right thing to do. all right so you're already a busy guy right you take care of sick patients you teach future doctors, the research and write about it and you manage this whole department thousands of people. >>so it sounds like you need one more thing to do doctor will actor and i was getting a little or done is it a longer because you're going to be guest wildly popular and fast growing. podcast it's called in the bubble and he slammed it has been the host but he has been asked by the biden white house to come serve as a senior adviser for the pandemic response and and he's going to do that for the next 4 months. i bet you never
9:14 pm
thought you'd be hosting a podcast. >>i did that was not my list of things that was going to do. i have been doing a whole lot of public communication since this started and i you know it's it's a gratifying thing to do. we're all learning about this together there's a tremendous amount of need for information and there's a lot of misinformation out there. so we've been having grand rounds at ucsf that we've been putting on youtube they've been very very popular i've been tweeting a lot. andy who's one of my heroes of these effective an impasse person. called me last week and he question for you would you like to take over my podcast which gets about a million downloads a month. and i said sure so i'll do that for 4 i i have been an avid listener so might as well inches do it and the guests are a who's who in the world of covid but the world to find quite broadly including everything from tony fauci to tina fey last weekend the new

>>thousands have reported you sightings and some have been declassified by the federal government this week that's ahead of a deadline set by oddly enough the coronavirus relief bill, you know this is an interesting story kron four's ella sogomonian she joins us in the studio to explain ella catherine grant this mysterious blue light was captured over the skies of hawaii just this week. >>it's hard to understand exactly why but lawmakers who want to know more about these kind of events have tacked on an order for more information on you oppose to the covid-19 relief bill that could make this past year all the more strange. >>we want to know who who are they. well why are they here. it what are their intentions. and how long have they been here. >>the clock is ticking for the pentagon's discreet program to
