health is the first case of a rare blood condition following use of the johnson & johnson vaccine. the san francisco resident, currently in his 30s, was diagnosed with tts last wednesday, april 21st. the pain started in his lower back and leg. >> these deep clots will present as pain and swelling. so if it's in one leg versus another, you will get pain and one leg versus another. it hurts. it's like you wake up in the middle of the night and you have a cramp in your leg. it's that kind of pain. >> reporter: the man was admitted to the hospital 13 days after receiving the shot. it is similar to the timeline reported in the other cases reporting women. he is expected to be discharged within a few days. >> he seek -- nature to seek care.
6:02 pm

6:03 pm
supply chain for us having more j&j vaccine. however, we are already seeing a decrease in demand. the bigger issue, i think, is making the case to people to get vaccinated. >> reporter: there are 2000 j&j vaccine appointments waiting to go live on the states my turn site, as far as when those doses will become available, that data review mentioned is expected to wrap up in a day or two. so we will keep a close eye on those appointments and find out exactly when they are added. >> thank you very much. stephanie sierra, reporting. two thirds of san franciscans have been vaccinated with at least one shot. the health director says he expects that figure to hit 70% by week's end. he says san francisco's vaccination rate is better than most u.s. cities, but there is room for improvement and
6:04 pm
progress. two bay area counties are making a push to vaccinate residents. marin county is fanning out to neighborhoods offering shots, no appointment necessary. santa clara county is offering same-day drop in vaccinations at clinics. appointment are not necessarily there either. the appointments are offering free rides to get to and from vaccination sites with an emphasis on getting older residents their shots. 75% of seniors are fully vaccinated in santa clara county. the focus is on the remaining 25% and eliminating barriers to get a shot. >> are transit services for people who cannot access fixed route transit, like they can't go to the station or the bus stop. >> the free rides will take passengers to any vaccination site in the county, have to be registered with the vta access program first. you can schedule rides by going
6:05 pm
to the website or by calling vta paratransit. in the east bay contra costa county has had a milestone with 1 million vaccine doses administered, that there are signs things may be slowing down. that was evident by what a crew found at an all but empty site in pittsburgh. look at this. laura anthony tells us there is also a growing trend of people skipping their second shot. >> reporter: there was no waiting at this pop-up covid vaccine clinic in pittsburgh. it's quite a contrast to recent images like these, where people waited for hours for that coveted shot. lauren perez didn't wait at all in pittsburgh to get her dose of pfizer. she tells us she will definitely get the second. >> if you get to shop, if that's what it takes to be vaccinated and covered, it's worth getting it done. >> reporter: according to the cdc, as many as 8% of americans who got the first dose have decided not to get the second shot. some don't want to face potential side effects twice, or may feel one dose is good enough. >> if you have gotten one, you need to. you are not going to be able to
6:06 pm
do what you want to do, necessarily, especially in states that are moving past new york state. >> reporter: so far, 2 to 3% of people are not showing up for 2nd doses. >> i am not seeing the hesitancy return for the second dose, but in regards to statistics, i believe there has been miscommunication in regards to where to show up for the second dose. >> reporter: this 51-year-old tells us she will get both doses, but worries about those who won't get vaccinated at all. >> a lot of the younger people i know, they are pretty hesitant. they are like, we don't >> reporter: why do you think that is? >> ignorance. >> if people don't embrace the vaccine and take both shots of
6:07 pm
moderna and pfizer, it will take us longer to get back to normal, if, ever. >> at least one of those we talked with will do their part. they will let friends and family know that there is no waiting. the vaccine is readily available right here in the neighborhood. >> i will post on my facebook page that they are doing pfizer shots, today. >> reporter: laura anthony, abc7 news. if you have any questions on the vaccine, head to our website. we have details after getting your shot and the guide to getting an appointment if you still need one. it is up now at new guidance is expected from the cdc about wearing masks, tomorrow. our abc7 vaccine team told us the changes we >> i'm expecting to hear some clear-cut guidelines that you can go ahead and take the mask off if you are outdoors, especially if you are vaccinated, but also within certain areas, you know? perhaps if you're in the embarcadero, you can take your mask off. it doesn't make sense to me if you see people sitting outdoors at a restaurant next to packed tables with their masks off
6:08 pm
because you are in a restaurant, but then you have to wear it if you are walking alone on a trail. >> more indoor in person events are resuming. the san francisco symphony ci reduced. in order to get in,get in,get i, need proof of vaccination or negative test result. masks will also be required. the symphony plans to hold concerts through june 25th. it has been 14 months14 months1s symphony had a live, in person performance. developing news, with the effort to recall governor newsom. they have enough signatures to move forward with the recall. it is not a done deal just yet. counties have until thursday to submit the rest of the verified signatures. that will be followed by a 30 day period where people can withdraw their signatures. an effort is underway to encourage californians who did sign the petition to remove their names. one governor believes that is unlikely to happen. he put out a tweet criticizing the recall, saying it will undo
6:09 pm
progress that was made during the pandemic, and too much is at stake. california will lose a little political clout. the state is still the most populous in the country with a 39 and half million people who live here, but its growth has stalled. that means our state is going to be one of seven states that will lose one seat in congress. new york needed 89 more people to hold a seat. liz kreutz is live with us with a closer look at what this all means for the most popular state in the union. >> that's right.that's california has lost a seat, including texas, and florida, which gained one. for california, it comes down to slow population growth. it's not that we aren't growing, it's that other places are growing much faster. >> reporter: for the first time in california history, the state has lost a congressional seat.
6:10 pm
instead of 53 house seats, we will have 52. the change comes after the census results, which show slow population growth in california. >> california grew 2 million residents since the the the the in 2011. the state is growing, but it's not growing at the same rate that it was in prior dates. >> reporter: states like texas and florida are growing at a faster pace. but why? >> why california hasn't grown so much in the past? i think there's a number of factors. >> reporter: officials said over the past decade, more people have left the state moved to it. that idea of a california exodus was promoted by the gop, which blamed governor newsom for policies that are driving people away. but paul mitchell with redistricting partners says it is more than that. >> i definitely understand that people want to look at the policy area as a point to
6:11 pm
people moving across the country, but birthrates are a real driving factor in the population change, not being as rapid as it was in the 70s, 80s and 90s. >> reporter: the data team found birthrates have declined in california over the past decade. whatever it is, the combination of factors have resulted in one less house seat in california. now, the collocated job every deck to sing. -- redistricting. it won't be available until this year, the current projections show the bay area could be safe from losing the district. >> the bay area as a whole, the nine county bay area region, right now, it is projected to essentially gain may be a fifth or a 10th -- it's a little political gain for the bay area. >> despite the fact that we are
6:12 pm
losing a house seat, as we mentioned, california still has the largest population of any state and the congressional states, so even though this means we are losing representation and electoral college votes, we still, as a state, will have a lot of political power. live in the newsroom, liz kreutz, abc7 news. >> let's talk about what happens next. tell us how redistricting will work. >> the reality is, one less seat means one less congress member, so somebody is going to lose their job. where in the state that c comes from is still unknown. when we get the population numbers, it is expected to show a shift of people who move from the coastal areas to inland areas, specifically in the l.a. and southern california area. because of that, southern california could be the area that loses a seat. we will see. >> liz, thank you. the people who want to recall windsor's mayor took a key step, today. that's ahead. companies are finding it hard to hire essential workers, some are offering bonuses to attract new help.
