6:01 pm
aren't losing sight of concerns about vaccine hesitancy. >> zero knows, the motion passes. >> a boat marking a milestone parent across the country have been waiting for. pfizer's covid-19 vaccine for five to 11-year-olds is just one step away from being shipped out across the u.s. dr. george rutherfor rutherfor r the kids vaccine contains one third of pfizer's original dose. each shot will be and ministered with a smaller needle a few weeks apart. >> i expect it to be four weeks or more. that's one of the reasons we think pfizer's immunity has waned more rapidly was because the dosing was closer together than for the moderna. >> all the dosage is smaller, it does not mean it's less effective. advisors highlighted several studies indicating antibody responses among five to 11-year-olds were equally as robust for the smaller dose as they were with older age groups. >> there have been trials where
6:02 pm
they could calculate vaccine efficacy in its above 90%. >> with high efficacy, experts did lose sight of concerns over vaccine hesitancy. what would you tell parents concerned about long-term impacts of the vaccine, or concerns that could impact their child's fertility -- futility? >> the vaccine does not cause fertility problems today or in the future of the child -- child. the benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any potential risks. >> a kaiser foundation poll said 35% of parents were definitely not ready to get their kids vaccinated or only would've required. compared to 27% indicating they would right away. the good news, rutherford said our track record in the bay area gives us hope we may not have that problem. >> in many areas, 90% of 12 to 17-year-olds have gotten the vaccine. if we had that kind of performance, i think we will go a long way to blotting the winter surge.
6:03 pm
>> i hope that happens. there are 28,000,005 to 11-year-olds that will become eligible for the shot. rutherford says if we get a majority of the age group vaccinated, the country's total vaccination rate could increase from 58% to 66%, significantly reducing the chances of a winter surge, especially here in the bay area. >> i know you have been in touch with the state, how many doses will california receive this week? >> we are told more than 1.3 million doses have been ordered, that's enough to cover roughly one third of california's five to 11-year-old population. i do want to point out before children of that age group can be vaccinated in california, a collaborative called the western states scientific safety review workgroup must first away in, and we are told that is expected to happen quickly. >> today at 3:00 p.m. on getting answers, we asked the doctor from ucsf with today's move to
6:04 pm
authorize the vaccine for five to 11-year-olds could mandate schools. >> it probably won't be mandated until it's fully approved. and few months. because if the approval authorization came today, it six months between authorization and approval. >> california will require students to get the vaccine, but it will not be required until full approval, like mention. this state said january 1 and july 1 are possible dates, whatever comes first after full approval. shots will be available as early as friday in contra costa county for newly eligible kids. our abc 7 news reporter continues our coverage with what we know. >> we were parents expect as the vaccine rollout happens rapidly in the next couple of days. we took a look at contra costa county, which comprised of all

6:06 pm
>> the contra costa county health department expects the vaccine rollout to happen rapidly once they get the doses. >> parents can get the vaccine for five to 11-year-olds at several location that includes health care providers and other community clinics. >> walk in school-based vaccine clinics are already getting scheduled for next week with the goal of immunizing children by the holiday season. parents are advised to look for a communication from their district in the coming days. >> some of them are the unified school district and mount diablo school district, and a few others. >> i think for people who are feeling more cautious, they can wait a little bit, not too long. i think time will help people who are really worried. next week or two, and may be a secondary wave after that as parents are reassured that it's
6:07 pm
all going smoothly. they should expect it to be like it has been for adults. that is, go to a drive-through clinic, walk-through clinic in many places will accept appointments although they are not a couple yet. i was told to add some reassurance that the pediatric doses will be shipped separately from adult doses and will be marked with different color lids on the vials to make it really clear which ones are for the kids and which are for the adults. >> that's good to know. kids get vaccines, they are used to getting a shot, but, like we heard, there is a lot of fear from parents, so there might be fear from kids getting the vaccine. did any medical experts you spoke with suggest ways to maybe prepare your child for getting the vaccine? >> obviously it will depend on the age of your child, but in general, for kids who don't like shots, it would be to kind of let them know the day of that
6:08 pm
they are going to be getting the vaccine, prepare them a few hours in advance, tell them they are being brave, tell them they are helping their community, and you know how that works, it's great to have an ice cream cone, toy or some special thing lined up after the shot to help them out. >> my kid just likes a good band-aid. i get a band-aid? >> while some parents may rush to get their kids vaccinated, there will be many who have questions first. this doctor is a member of the abc 7 news vaccine team and is pediatrician. we asked how he would respond to parents concerns. >> it was unanimous because they reviewed all the data in such detail, after the fda subcommittee did as well. they looked at where we were at in the pandemic and considered that the benefits still outweigh the risks, even that tiny risk of mild card-itis. >> if you have questions about
