there may be one shower out there most of us drive for the evening we can forecast coming up. mike thank you. we continue to track breaking news and the fight against covid-19 and just the last hour. the fda authorized pfizer and modern vaccine booster shots for all adults abc 7 news reporter amy hollyfield live in campbell without the what this means for anyone trying to get a shot and how soon they could get it into their arms amy. hi reggie. well, this should help clear up any confusion. you've possibly experienced at these national pharmacy chains like cvs and walgreens. we've heard from some bay area residents who have tried to apply or book an appointment to get a booster. at these pharmacies, but the screening process has kicked them out and that's because in california, they're authorized to go ahead and get that booster all adults over 18 can get it here in california, but it wasn't approved by the fdc yet. so the national rules were in place in that software for that online booking. well that will end soon because
moderna and pfizer both say that their requests have been approved by the fda and they say this is good timing as we head into the winter months and a concerns about a covid surge continue to grow the company say their clinical trials show that the booster prompted good responses from immune systems. so now the next step is the cdc the cdc must approve this the officials there have promised to quickly review this data. once the cdc gives it the green light. well, then it gets going nationwide. so they're the thinking is is that nationwide 18 and older can start getting that booster as early as this weekend reporting live in campbell amy hollyfield abc 7 news. thank you. amy. new this morning. austria is going back into a national lockdown as covid cases surge. it's the first national lockdown in europe this fall the country's chancellor says it will begin on monday and will last a minimum of 10 days, but could also be extended an

19th in sympathy for local 39. this will not bring us closer to an agreement and most important. it is unfair to our members and patients. apple has a new deadline for february 1st for employees to return to the office many will have to come in at least three days a week, but some workers will have to be in. office for four to five days a week the company will offer some teams up to four weeks of remote work. each year vaccinations are not mandatory but unvaccinated workers will have to test every day taking a live look at sfo this morning where today is expected to be the busiest day for thanksgiving travel 50,000 passengers are expected to go through security checkpoints sometime today in oakland airport officials are preparing to see twice the number of passengers. they saw last year. overall. the tsa says 20 million people will fly this thanksgiving the busiest days across the nation will likely be tuesday and wednesday, so they are advising you to of course be prepared where that mask get your
