6:00 pm
>> i am dan ashley. we are on vaccine watch because it is the best chance of beating the pandemic and building a better bay area. that's why we have put together the vaccine team, monitoring scientific developments, appointment bottlenecks, and looking ahead it with the future holds. >> tonight, dr. look patel and lose pina joins joins joins joio they will give us what we need when it comes to the pandemic. you spent the day looking at what could happen if criminals turn out these fakes at -- -- vaccine cards. >> they categorize this as unauthorized use of a federal agencies seal, like the cdc, as a crime. >> reporter: in a matter of clicks, anyone could have
6:01 pm
access to a fake cdc vaccine card. this is what 45 attorneys general are highly concerned about. the fbi categorizes this is a crime. >> we know people have been selling fake vaccine vaccine va it will make things less safe. it will make the pandemic last longer. >> north carolina's attorney general is giving ceos of twitter, and shop a fight until friday to respond. and, quote, take immediate action to prevent your platforms from being used as a vehicle to commit these practical and deceptive acts. he believes these black-market deals could lead to a wider implementation of a vaccine passport. >> i expect there will be a form of digital signature. >> reporter: the concept of the digital passport has become more relevant as the date approaches when california will allow theater performances in concerts and private gatherings. >> it will likely need to be
6:02 pm
paper and digitals, not everyone has digital access. >> california's director of public health, tomas aragon, gave some insight as to where the state stands regarding vaccine passports. >> we will be following what the federal government comes out with. we are also planning to make sure we come out with -- if they don't move fast enough, we will, with technical standards of what we expect. >> at least airlines are not waiting for the digital certificate. the commons project ceo says this digital pass is safe and could prevent fraud. >> the way the data is digitized, basically, it takes a record of the vaccination, put it in what is effectively a digital envelope. >> reporter: we are also seeing a lot of people posting photos of their vaccine cards online. it is an exciting time. the public is asking people not to post photos. they believe this is a way
6:03 pm
personal information could be stolen to commit fraud. in the newsroom, luz pena, abc 7 news. as more vaccines rollout, is the government considering implemented a vaccine passport? >> reporter: the biden administration made it clear that they will leave it up to states and the private sector to decide. dr. fauci spoke about this and said the government won't require a vaccine passport. >> okay. thank you. now, let's bring in a member of the abc7 vaccine team, we will start with your thoughts on what talking about, the vaccine passport. do you think that is something you would support? >> it depends on how it was implemented. the first thing i have to say with the passport, proof of vaccination, this is not a new concept. even other countries you travel, i don't think people out there, you know, are
6:04 pm
necessarily equating the two. we are ready have these vaccine requirements in many areas of society. already, the vaccine passport has been politicized. i think there is a misconception out there. people are saying this is a dystopian government. we have heard thatheard thatheat left to private businesses in the private sector. either you get a proven vaccination, or you get proof of a negative test. the one concern i have that experts have talked about, even the aclu, is that this was on a digital only system. we might be alienating those who don't have a smart phone, the elderly, the disabled, people who can afford a digital pass, there has to be some type of paper option. as the report mentioned, the paper option leaves an open window for fraud
6:05 pm
does have to be rolled out by private sectors. it'll have to be a diligent and equitable way. >> what seems simple is very complex. >> 100%. >> within 10 days, california will expand vaccinations to anyone over 16. the state just open vaccines to anyone over age 50. according to the abc7 news vaccine tracker emma 23% of californians are vaccinated. we are lagging behind most of the country. we rank 40 thirst -- 41st among the states in terms of percentage of people vaccinated. we are a big state. we are the most populous. but that can't be the only reason our progress is what are we doing wrong, what are we doing right, and what can we do better? >> i wish i could give you this in three quick sentences. i think we are trying to play catch-up to what is happening in december or january. there were structural issues. there were supply-chain issues. we saw in equitable distribution all over the state. it got complicated. they had to shut down because there wasn't supply. once counties started to figure
6:06 pm
out how to run their own show, we heard about this plan this p blue shield. i heard from medical experts and county experts across the state who were saying, why do we have to answer this third- party? it is also causing some confusion. one thing i will praise california for, in the beginning, recognizing we have equitable distribution, we heard governor newsom say we would have 47% of the supply go to these disadvantaged communities, on the other hand, there is a discrepancy on how those are being distributed. i think we can see how this pans out. the last thing i have to mention, as this expands, we have to have a smooth system. this has to be laden glitches. there are no appointments near me, some people say, or the system is down one day, it said there were zero.
6:07 pm
that system seems to favor people who have internet access, tech savvy, those who want to go to their community clinic, and see providers get the shot. it's a complicated state. their rates are not better than ours. it is like 20s or 30s. we have room to catch up. >> i have heard the same thing. so many people are having trouble with it. we have been getting conflicting messages. there might be another surge heading our way. we heard this ominous warning from the cdc, dr. rochelle walensky, listen. >> i'm going to lose the script. i'm going to reflect on the recurring feeling. we have so much to look forward to, so much promise and potential of where we are, and so much reason for hope right now, i am scared. >> but the very next day on abc7 news, ucsf
6:08 pm
gandhi had a different perspective. >> i'm not concerned for at least three reasons. number one, we are doing a good job at rolling out vaccines. second, we are peeling off restrictions, but we are peeling them off slowoff slow the numbers are looking great as they have been. i can bet anything we -- not have a fourth surge. >> all right, two doctors, two different perspectives, i'm having fun putting you on the spot, tonight. let's make you the tiebreaker. is california facing a fourth surge? >> i will first be humbled by the two previous physicians and their wealth of knowledge. i'm somewhat in the middle, but i will side with dr. gandhi. i don't actually think there will be a fourth surge in comparison to the weeks we have seen. cases are going up in some parts of the country. some parts have opened up and dropped restrictions overnight.
6:09 pm
they are being driven by younger people who are not vaccinated. we have to remember a large portion of some of these places, healthcare workers, people above the age of 65 have been vaccinated. there is immunity running around in the community as well. even if we had a rise in cases, which, we hopefully will not, we could see the same increase in icu and cases and deaths. i don't think that's going to happen. we might see a rise in cases, but it is misleading or fear mongering to say there will be a fourth surge. that doesn't mean we can let our guard down. if we can open everything like a floodgate, we lose sight of the vaccination, we could get in trouble. >> it is encouraging to hear. we don't have herd immunity yet. we had more than just a few weeks ago. is that correct? we don't anticipate the
6:10 pm
picture. >> remember, we can still see an increase in cases. some states are reporting that young people are driving the increase in cases. even now, young people having a much lower chance of getting infected, you will inevitably see those in the system. i don't want those to rise. what i am saying is i don't think we will see the deadly surge at this point that we have had in the past. again, and i stress this, if we let the virus run rampant, and it continues to mutate, and we let the variants spread all over the country, we could see a different story. that's if we do everything against what we know is -- what is safe. >> great information. that is really interesting,
6:11 pm
this perspective. of course, he is a member of the abc7 vaccine team. we want to get you answers. go to, and right there, you will have the blue box saying submit questions, here. again, that is is that is also where you will find some of the charts and graphs we have been referring to so you can eat -- keep an eye on the vaccination progress. thanks again. talking more about vaccinations, days were numbered for the most successful vaccination site in the area. take a look at the coliseum, where, for weeks, 6000 shots per day have been administered in part with the federal government. that partnership ends on sunday. however, late today, we will keep it going. the abc7 news report has the latest. >> reporter: if you are eligible, please make an appointment and get vaccinated. >> reporter: alex padilla toward the vaccine site at the
6:12 pm coliseum, still getting shots at a rapid pace. more than 200,000 shots were given so far. fema will abandon the site after an eight week mission. >> it was a very >> reporter: keith carson says the coliseum site is a lifeline to many underserved communities, and easily accessible. >> the major freeway right there, -- >> reporter: it is why he and state and local leaderslocal les this letter to the acting director, asking authorities to keep the site running for another four weeks until the county could take it over. the response from fema -- >> it was kind of a denial letter of the the the the >> he says he is trying to broker a deal with the feds to keep the site running temporarily. how to pay for it is still a big question. >> we don't have a plan or commitment, we have the willingness of all parties.
6:13 pm
>> there is no way we can take from our existing vaccine supply to make up for all of the vaccine -- >> later, they confirmed that kamala harris says the site is going to stay open. there are still no details on who would operate it. abc7 news. a lot more busy monday, of course, tonight, the story of the bay area's biggest county waving small fees for small businesses and making a big bi next, the homecoming for kamala harris, the first woman vice president made her first visit to the bay area today and stopped in her hometown of oakland. >> reporter: i am spencer christian. we have an onshore breeze right now.
