troops to help protect the u. s. capitol in the wake of the riot last week. authorities say they now want to deploy at least 25,000 forces for the inauguration of joe biden. they have commitments for 22,000 troops so far. meanwhile congress is launching an investigation into how thousands of people were able to storm the capital in that deadly siege. ktvu political reporter, greg lee spoke with janet napolitano, the former homeland security secretary, about whether she believes that the inauguration will be secure. there just seemed to be a lack of law enforcement presence to keep control over the security of the capital.
5:31 pm
i'm sure that will not happen next week for the inauguration, like much of the country, former secretary of the department of homeland security janet napolitano was in shock is a pro trump mob assaulted the capital. her previous role in the politan a lead the country's efforts to counter terrorism and enhance security as authorities continue to arrest and charge those responsible for the insurrection, she said. a lot of questions need to be answered. where was the security planning? what was the planet? what was the plan b. there certainly was enough information out ahead of time that. things could get crazy. the fbi has urged the law enforcement around the country to be on high alert, warning of threats of violence leading up to and on inauguration day, governor newsome called in 1000 national guard members to help protect the state capitol in sacramento. more than 20,000 troops are pouring into d c to help secure the nation's capital. despite the threats,
5:32 pm
napolitano was confident in the secret service and their partners to keep everyone safe as the new president is sworn in. president elect biden is intent on abiding by the norms of how we do inaugurations and ceremonies. and i think it's important that he do so to show that. we do have the peaceful transfer of power on that. he is the president of the united states next month in the paul tana was launching the center for the study of security and politics at berkeley. she says one of the things they'll discuss is the need for the department of homeland security and other law enforcement to prioritize investigating extremist groups in the u. s. well, i think we need to deal with them as azenith smith. they organized online. um and it's not their speech that violence of the of the law. we're free speech country.
5:33 pm
what's violative of the law are the violent actions that they undertake on the violence that they insight. greg lee ktvu, fox two news. authorities have set up a temporary security perimeter, including a 6 ft chain link fence around the state capitol in sacramento. the chp says that it is not going to issue any more permits for rallies of the capital around the time of the inauguration in d. c this afternoon, governor newsome said some of the 1000 guard troops called up will be posted at other sites, but he did not name them for security purposes. santa cruz county has now surpassed 100 deaths from the coronavirus, according to the health department. there are now over 3000 active cases in santa cruz county, 346. people have required hospitalization because of the virus. the health department says the counties in the middle of a surge related to the holidays. our surge continues
5:34 pm
that started with halloween, so we knew that the back to back holidays of halloween thanksgiving christmas new year's all the other, many celebrations that happened during those months. we're going to take a toll on our community. and they perhaps have hit santa cruz county harder than they have the rest of the state. well, health officials say there have been several outbreaks around santa cruz. many were at assisted living facilities and hospitals. others have happened at a variety of places such as grocery stores, gas stations and restaurants. joining us now to talk about the vaccination processes. doctor burney a saying, doctor, thank you so much for joining us this afternoon. i wasn't even in giving. yes well, the first doctor i wanted to start with the vaccinations. what do you make of the changing guidelines here? should the changes have been made earlier? are they being made at the time that we now have learned? maura about the vaccination process? yes. so you know, that's a great
5:35 pm
question about you know, should these have been made earlier? in hindsight, things seem pretty clear that we should've expanded the group to 65 older as well. a sloth with. home morbid conditions because i think that it's surprised folks over the holidays. how slow the rollout was here in california. we know that's only 27 to 20% vaccine doses that have been utilized. perhaps it was a thought that more people would sign up. but there was also labor force is issues over the holidays. and really when you think about the covid vaccine and the disease being talked about every single day throughout the day and the effect it's had over the last year that's been surprising. i am glad to hear that the state has expanded its allocation to who is a priority group. but what's really important is to get the distribution quickly so that folks can get immunized at this time when it's clear that the surge is having a big impact. we'll get to just where
5:36 pm
our state ranks pretty much to the bottom in terms of administering the amount of vaccine that we have. we'll get to that in a second. but first we are hearing from a lot of seniors were wondering how they signed up for unemployment here to get this vaccine. now, do these seniors actually retire to their doctors or local county health officials to schedule getting these vaccinations? yes so this is also a really important question that has been coming up with a lot of seniors who, though they are very interested in getting the vaccine don't really know where to start. i can tell i had called my own parents, uh, position clinic, and they themselves were unclear about if they would, in fact that it where is now i think that the news you folks have made it clear that a lot of people are unhappy. for example, stanford today announced that those folks and santa clara county and san mateo clowney. part of stamford health here as patients and
5:37 pm
qualifying the priority group will get it so slowly. the hospital system seemed to be coming around, but i think they have to make it easier. the providers to get the information, so they know either where to direct their patients or they themselves when they can administer, and i think that has been a big gap in all of this. it seems like the information is but scattered, so they're trying to figure out who to talk to get the correct information. now, let's get to this question here. west virginia, north dakota all of the top of the list here most successful states and administering the vaccine. yet here in california, on lee about 25 27% of distributed doses actually made in the people's arms. what has the state done wrong here? why are there so many doses? still sitting in storage? yeah, again. this is this is surprising. press state, which is often ahead of the curve in terms of. thinking about data innovation. how to implement new concepts had anticipated and really, you have to commend north dakota, west virginia and other states
5:38 pm
that have been right on top of it. in fact, i went to the north dakota public health department website is so clear in terms of. who they're noting as priority groups that providers have to actually sign up by a certain system to be part of those is to receive the allocation that the allocation goes to centralize place and then is redistributed to the providers, and it's so clear on their website. not only that, but who the priority groups are. it seems to be updated. where is here on our website? you in california? i'm sure this will change every day because. this is obviously you know, inflow, working work in progress, but it was more about the larger philosophy about an equitable distribution. but the public health officers in the county are really the ones that are in charge of this and certainly stanford has said that is other hospitals, but i think it has to be made more clear for the providers,
5:39 pm
perhaps, and smaller clinics, systems and for the larger health s to coordinate and my understanding is that the local bear hospitals large and smaller, all coordinating now, and i think that really is something that if it hadn't happened weeks ago, perhaps we would not have unfilled slots on did also just getting people who could work during the holidays and after i'm sure there are many people who are willing to help out in this time of need, but also just to pay them and t give them some work would have been very helpful. yeah, yeah, a lot of people still need that vaccine. across the country, their 31 million doses that were distributed 10.6 million have been administered. of course, california's has much bigger population is then west virginia, north dakota, so that might have also contributed to their higher numbers are daca vanina saying thank you so much for your insight this afternoon. oh, it's great to be here. thank you. officers responded to 911 collar, saying they could hear gunshots and
