effective at noon on monday. you won't have to wear a mask in an indoor public place. unless other rules say that you have to so how did this happen so fast well marin, has fallen to the cdc's yellow tier for moderate covid transmission and it stayed there for three weeks. san francisco is the only other county in that. category the rest of the bay area is in the orange tier with substantial transmission the next metric. they're looking at are hospitalizations and they are low and they have stayed that way and at least 80% of the total population in marin county is fully vaccinated every bay area county except solano agreed on those benchmarks. so far marin is the only one to reach them, but four counties are relaxing mask rules for a small number of places like gyms and offices. when everyone there is fully vaccinated masks become optional the rule takes effect monday in the city of berkeley plus alameda and contra costa

counties, san francisco and marin counties started at earlier this month and now to today's other big story pfizer's vaccine authorized by the fda for emergency use in children ages 5 to 11 cdc authorization could come as soon as tuesday abc 7 news reporter melanie woodrow has a look now at what changes as a result. of today's announcement the fda says the covid-19 vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 years old will be administered. as a two-dose primary series three weeks apart, but will be a lower dose than what is used for individuals 12 years old and up as a mother and as a physician i know. parents caregivers school staff and children have been waiting for today's authoriz. in the us covid-19 cases in children 5 through 11 years old make up 39% of cases in individuals younger than 18 years old parents and guardians can rest assure that we conducted a comprehensive and rigorous evaluation of the data on the vaccine safety and
6:02 pm
effectiveness, but a recent kaiser family foundation poll found that three in 10 parents say they will definitely not get their five to 11 year old vaccinated some parents are going to be hes. about vaccinating this age group, but that was true for adults at the beginning of the pandemic dr. george. rutherford is a ucsf professor of epidemiology. i think we'll see a much more robust uptake here in in the bay area and in, california. other kaiser family foundation poll found that long-term effects serious side effects and impacts on fert. tea are among top concerns parents have about vaccinating their 5 to 11 year old child. there's no evidence that there is an effect an adverse effect on fertility. i would encourage people to get their children vaccinated as quickly as they can. i think it'll go. way towards getting to herd immunity and getting real lasting disease control the initial 15 million doses are expected to start shipping out a visors manufacturing plant
6:03 pm
within 24 hours vaccinations will start once the cdc signs off on specific rec. nations likely next week melanie woodrow abc 7 news lagging behind with boosters san francisco county health officials are launching a new initiative today urging seniors to get vaccinated before the holidays abc 7 news reporter stephanie. sierra is digging into some of the data that's out there. she is in the newsroom tonight with a closer look steph yes, dan. why? builders for moderna anthony johnson's vaccine got approved just over a week ago. it's in more than a month now since the fda authorized pfizer's booster for seniors and those at high risk of covid, but health officials say both groups in san francisco are far from where they need to be. for months, we've heard health officials highlight the importance of booster shots, especially for seniors and those at high risk of covid-19. but the problem in san francisco most aren't getting them only about one in five of our seniors
6:04 pm
over 65 have gotten boosters are about 19 percent deputy director of health dr. naveena. baba says, these are people who are eligible meaning anyone 65 and older who are at least six months out their primary vaccination series. where would you expect that percentage to be? it's a good question. i mean, obviously we would want it to especially as we hear go into the winter months. we want, you know, those percentages to be, you know, well above 50% san francisco has more than 100 vaccination sites across the city and county including health centers pharmacies and hospital systems yet, dr. baba says many of them saw little demand for a third dose over the past few weeks. yeah. i think it was like a study low level. is in general, why you think that is? i think there's a couple reasons. i mean first of all it was only pfizer that was approved. luckily madrina and johnson have also now gotten approved and so i think because of that messaging people were quite sure if they should get a booster the
6:05 pm
critical third dose now considered necessary as research on waning immunity becomes more clear. the research is showing that you know months out the meeting that might even decreased below 30 to 60 percent. i mean, there's a range there dr. mike wasserman who sits on california's vaccine advisory committee says educating people on the value of boosters will be critical for us to move forward we don't spend the time and energy to educate we're gonna be down the same path people just aren't going to naturally do it. we cannot assume that they're just gonna say great the boosters here, and now that they are here with the holidays inching closer. we all have a deadline to meet and what i would encourage everybody to do is look at thanksgiving go back two weeks and say that's when you want your that's your your deadline for getting a booster. alright, so two weeks out from thanksgiving is november 11th, which is just a couple weeks away. so dan, i'd say a pretty easy deadline to meet given there are plenty of booster appointments available online. in fact, i just checked a moment
6:06 pm
ago. you can go to sf.gov/vaccine sites to find a clinic near you and of course we have that link over on our website as well. all right. thanks stephanie. and before you go, what are the doctors say about the thinking behind why seniors some seniors have not gotten their booster yet? why? well, dr. baba pointed to mixed messaging on boosters when the ea and cdc were not on the same. age it certainly created some confusion. so she thinks that could partially be to blame here, but also added, you know, some people haven't been tracking their six-month timetable from when they've finished their vaccination series. we've got to remember those vaccination cards and take a look at them again. it's a good reminder to keep tabs on that and when you are eligible or if you feel at risk to go ahead and get one, absolutely stephanie sierra. thanks, stephanie. now if you have questions about covid-19 vaccine mandates policies or what's happening. live you can ask our vaccine team. just go to abc 7 news.com slash vaccine and click on the big

making some changes that could put a few bucks in your pocket 7 on your side's michael. finney is here with that story michael if there's one thing i've learned as a consumer
6:38 pm
reporter. it's that trying to get a refund can be like pulling teeth. so when it turned to help bart was willing to refund money on its old unused tickets. well, i had to put that to the test. bart is in the process of changing over from disposable paper tickets to touchless clipper cards anymore. you don't see many of the paper tickets being used at march entry gate. here's bart spokesperson james allison. we're phasing out the paper tickets throughout the system. you can no longer buy a ticket for bart at a bart station. and so if you have some used tickets that you can't use at a bart station. you can return them and get a refund for those tickets as long as they're at least worth a dollar money back from bart. is that really work? i had accumulated over the years a bunch of paper. our tickets lawrence chang
6:39 pm
reached out to me to say he turned in some tickets with the help of a station agent and lo and behold six weeks later a check came in from bart. me and i cashed the check. and i got about 34 35 dollars worth. what money back from bart is it really that easy or was he just lucky? i decided to test the system myself. so i went to a station agent without saying who i was or what i was up to. the agent was great helping me with the forms and six weeks later. my bart check comes in. $19.20 the as bart said it would we have a number of tickets out there that are still in circulation and people are still free to use those but there's going to be a point in time in the not too distant future when you're not going to be able to use the tickets to get through our fare gates thinking ahead. smart so now that i have some
6:40 pm
found money, what should i spend it on? perhaps bart swag bart has set up an online store just in time for the holidays. my favorite are these argyle socks? and so they have the new bart train on them in the bart logo. and if you're say headed to washington dc or seattle to visit family members and you want to show your bay area pride what could do it better than a period pair of bart socks. what says happy holidays more than argyle bart socks. that's the question. i'll leave you with here tonight. look the bart website has an online form so you don't actually have to go to a bart station. they have a program that's been going on for years now where you take the few pennies that are left on your tickets. you put them together you give them to your favorite charity. oh, that's they cinnamon that will continue on and on that's a great idea. all right. thanks michael. sure. that's what we all need. all right, enjoy a warm sunny
