8:35 am
and when a booster may be needed. the bigger concern is getting more americans fully vaccinated. french researchers found a single dose of pfizer's two-shot regimen is not enough protection against the delta variant doctor swartzberg says data shows about 10% of people who received the first dose of the vaccine are not returning for the second those people are putting themselves at substantial risk, getting really sick from the delta variant. perhaps one of the up in the hospital and perhaps something even more serious reporting in san francisco. dan thorn kron 4 news. >> in the east bay alameda county is seeing an increase in covid and some of it they're saying is because of the delta variant fact. it could even be worse. then the spring wave of covid that we saw there. the alameda county health department says the latest increases side from the delta contagious variant. so just saying we reopened everybody's out and about and most people feel comfortable, not wearing masks. now health officer nicholas moss believes
