you were invading my first-amendment right to privacy. we were. i'm sick and tired of people not trusting me. i get it. and especially you guys. i don't think of you guys as my uncles, i think of you as my friends. and if your friends don't believe in you, then what else do you have? dylan's shoes? please don't tell my mom. buckle up. box two. for at least this city of our size and our gay population. probably more like 100,000. but for now, the bay area waits for a fraction of those monkey pox vaccine doses to arrive. good evening. i'm christina redundant. a large shipment of monkey pox vaccines is headed for the bay area, and
while it will more than double the shipment of previous vaccine allocations, most doctors agree it's not enough. ktvu zach sas joins us now live after speaking with the doctor about the race to get vaccinated. zach. yeah as you mentioned. we do know that ah, more than 10,000 doses of the monkey pox vaccine are headed to san francisco and that clinic at san francisco general hospital, which was very low on the vaccine this week will be reopening on tuesday. still bottom line, an expert. i spoke to says, even when those additional vaccines san francisco doesn't have anywhere near the supply it needs right now. it's uncomfortable it can make people feel terrible there . these legions are in very sensitive areas, usually in the general region. patients afflicted with monkey parks, ucsf infectious disease expert dr monica gandhi says the outbreak didn't need to get this bad. really disappointed in the u. s public health response with this particular outbreak since june, dr gandhi says she and her
colleagues have been warning about an outbreak. much of europe and canada has gobbled up the world's supply. a vaccine, prompting long lines at clinics across san francisco and frustration, so we're still making people wait for supply. there's people calling and we're putting them on waiting lists. we don't have enough. the white house says it's focuses on creating more vaccine. do we wish we had more vaccines? of course, like, but there's one company and right now what we're working on is expanding their manufacturing capacity. on monday, governor gavin newsom declaring a state of emergency over the outbreak, followed by the white house on thursday. nearly 400 of the states 1300 confirmed cases in san francisco . our staff is already overburdened with monkeypox at the moment because the testing is actually extremely cumbersome , so i am worried that in the fall it's going to be really busy because we really have to think about the americans specific booster. and getting monkeypox out to gay men in the united states. the states health department confirming that more
than 10,000 doses of the vaccine are now on the way to san francisco. 10,000 will help but probably the estimate of how much we're going to need in this country is two million doses of the more than 28,000 cases worldwide. the vast majority infected so far are gay men largely spread by direct contact . dr gandhi has urging those at high risk to take precautions. if you have active regions, um that maybe isn't the time to have active sex. if you want to use a condom, that would be great because it may that may help reduce transmission. and in the u. s right now, dr gandhi says cases are trending down. as for why that is, they say they don't have a definitive answer. but meanwhile, worldwide cases are going up. so bottom line experts say this is not the time for us to let our guard down christina sauce in oakland tonight, jack. thank you. you can go to the web link section of our website to find out how to track down vaccines in our
area. you also find a link to information about symptoms prevention and treatment. response to this outbreak will be part of the discussion tomorrow on our political show. the issue is the show's host, alex michaelson had a chance to go one on one with california state epidemiologist she understands many people are frustrated with the time it's taking to find vaccines available. yeah the vaccines apply is extremely limited. still um, so you know, to give you an example. so far here in california we received just over 109,000 doses, and we do anticipate a little bit more in mid august, but our understanding is that there is at least for the next few weeks or so only about a little over a million doses for the whole country, right? where state of 40 million people. we did send a letter to our federal partners recently, saying actually what we think we need in california to get to our highest risk population is probably more like 800,000 doses and again. we've gotten like 1/8 of that, so it's extremely limited right now. to
see more of that interview and learn more about california's fight against monkeypox. tune into the issue is tomorrow morning that show will get started at 5 30, a pair of shootings in downtown oakland overnight left one person dead and three other people injured. officers responded to webster and 14th street. just after midnight. they found one man there with life threatening injuries while officers were still on scene at around 3:15 a.m. they got a call of another shooting just a few blocks away at broadway and 17th. one man was killed. two others have injuries that are not considered life threatening. there's no word of any arrests in either of those shootings. police in san francisco say a shooting between officers and a suspect in the mission district this morning ended without anyone getting hit by gunfire. the shooting happened just before eight am near shotwell in 17th street. police say they were trying to detain the man who had two bicycles with him. but he took off. he reportedly shot at the officers as he rode away. authorities later determined the suspect was firing blanks, which they believe was with a replica
firearm. that suspect took cover. the officer took cover. and officers began returning fire on the suspect. suspect ended up behind the vehicle. we did we, the department the officers, the officers on scene did everything they could to negotiate a surrender. police called in a tactical unit and the suspect eventually surrendered. a man in his fifties was taken into custody. he was treated for minor injuries taking a live look tonight at the us capitol work got underway there which democrats hope will help them achieve climate, energy, health and tax goals. they started debating the inflation reduction act. fox's chet program program . rather reports of vote from vice president kamala harris will likely be needed to pass it. the senate waited all day but finally put things into motion once it finished all 755 pages of the bill. this is one of the most comprehensive and
impactful bills. congress has seen in decades. it will reduce inflation. it will lower prescription drug costs will fight climate change. it will close tax loopholes and it will reduce reduce the deficit. republicans called the bill a farce. let's start. with the bill's title, the inflation reduction act. sounds like a bill that's going to address perhaps the number one problem facing our nation, which is inflation. and then you actually look at the bill's contents. and discover that the bill will do nothing. to reduce inflation. the gop criticized enhanced irs enforcement in the bill. republicans characterize it as a tax hike, but democrats say the money offsets the cost of the bill. don't like the i r s, but i tell you this, the one thing that is better than raising taxes is making sure that everybody who actually owes their taxes pays their fair
share the amount of abuse that has been documented time and again is, i think, staggering. there's been estimates that we're leaving close to $200 billion on the table overnight. there's an extended vote series called a voter rama. republicans will engineer tough votes for democrats. the goal either tank the bill or get democrats to vote for something controversial. among the gop amendment one to reduce gas prices with the production of american oil, another to beef up the border, but sometimes the voter rama loses steam. sooner or later, members have either had their fill on their their pet ideas, or they're facing a lot of irritation and frustration from their colleagues are telling them in some cases very bluntly. knock it off. we're done. no bar amendments. it's time to finish this. all gop members opposed the bill. that's why democrats need all 50 of their members to vote. yes vice president harris
could be needed to break a tie at the very end on capitol hill chad program, fox news gas prices are continuing to drop across the country and here in the bay area. the us average is down to $4.08 a gallon and nearly 20 states now have gas and costs below $4 here in california and let it costs about $5.47 a gallon. that's down 75 cents from a month ago. 5 47 is also the average in oakland and san jose. it's $5.49 in san francisco drivers are paying $5.60. analysts say prices could go even lower next week as the price of crude oil declines, experts say low demand is what's pushing oil prices lower, not increased supply. opec's oil producing countries increased output for july and august by 640,000 barrels a day . but according to triple a that boosting supply is unlikely to affect gas prices, much as long as demand continues to drop. their analysts say that gas
demand measured in barrels fell more than 9% last week. president biden needs to test negative for covid-19 one more time before getting out of isolation. the president tested negative for the first time today after his second bat with the illness, mr biden first tested positive on july 21st. the administration said he experienced only mild symptoms, including fatigue, runny nose and cough. six days later, the president tested negative after a course of pax covid than three days after that, he tested positive again, o connor says mr biden quote feels very well but will continue to isolate until he tests negative a second time. the sun was out today for the thousands of people heading today two of the outside lands music festival in san francisco's golden gate park. music lovers from across the country came to the city annually rather come to the city annually for this event, the estimated 225,000 people are expected to attend over the course of the three day weekend artists that headline sets today
