cvs is in the yellow. as people blook, it dropped to 18 this afternoon. the opposite at rite aid n green, a bot we showed on twitter, doubled throughout the day today from 227 to 459. >> i noticed a lot of my friends went on at 5:00 p.m. and appointments opened up. i don't know if that is a good time frame. you never know. you don't have to find and get your appointment in the bay area. appointments are booked fast. can you go outside the area?
6:06 pm
>> you can. the question is where. lots of opening in the central valley, if you're willing to drive. that is the same we have seen for a couple weeks now. yeah, if you're willing to get in the car, you might get a shot soon. the same day. here's the thing. new appointments might continue to go to these locations. heerp is why. pharmacies are using a social vulnerability target. and cvs said it's okay to cross county lines. >> they are going to kmounty clinics, thanks very much. travel outside the area and keep refreshing your computer. >> yeah. >> thanks very much. >> you're welcome. >> vaccine hunting and what to do with your vaccine card. we have tips for you, on our platform. look for the how-to play list. >> in the 5:00 news, theren with
6:07 pm
plenty of appointments at the oakland coliseum. all those appointments are taken up. which arm should you get injected in and how can you minimize the soreness and what an't a third dose. let's bring in dr. hong. let's begin with pfizer. we will likely need a third shot, a booster shot if you will. when will we need that shot? >> pfizer is predicting a booster shot. but i think given the spector of variants, they want to be prepared and have us prepared and the system prepared for that prospect. it will be a year after you get your shot as a proposal. time will tell. we have tens of thousands of folks in the original trial who
6:08 pm
are followed. we know it lasts at least six months and maybe longer. that group of folks will give us the information before the rest of us have to react to it. >> in theory, it could be like flu shot. any skepticism this is a business move? >> no, you know, personally, as an infectious disease doctor, many people think the shot will last a long time. a year or more, two years, three years. but given the variants, i think that is why people are bringing it up. who knows what the true motivation is. it's not a bad idea to put it in our minds so at least we have the preparation mentally. >> a couple questions. which arm should people get
6:09 pm
injected with. does it depend? >> yeah, the idea is, you shouldn't get your vaccine in the dominant arm. the arm used with writing and throwing a ball. for me, the right arm. but the fact you move the arm more throughout the day is why some people think it's the right arm. it gets in the muscle, and inflammation cells go straight to where the shot is. there is no blood supply. the blood supply is slow. but if you move your arm around, you can get the blood supply going and mitigate that symptom. because it's a dominant arm, you are moving it around any way. >> thank you for your time and insight as usual. >> you're welcome. >> we are more information online. head to nbc bay area.com. click on how to get a vaccine appointment at the top of the page. a video circulating among san jose police is raising
6:10 pm
questions and concerns. the video shows a police sergeant throws a series of martial arts moves, with two batons, and in full uniform. only on nbc bay area, damian trujillo explains the video. >> reporter: at this point, it doesn't appear to have made it to social media, and many are worried about the message it sounds. the video was sent to me anonymously. it shows sergeant edly chan showing his skill with two police batons. batons are not issued by san jose place. >> i thought the video was irresponsible. >> reporter: a retired san jose lieutenant who used to supervise officer chen, he said this is
6:11 pm
never in his lesson plan. >> not even in the warmup stuff. >> reporter: when i reached tout sergeant chan, he referred to the department for comment. the department says it's conducting an internal investigation. some of his colleagues worry what example it sets for the rookies he supervises on his shift. we shooed the video to rev rant moore from the naacp. he is concerned about the message the video sends. >> i think it's a sad place for him to be if he feels he is going to work -- in combat with someone. >> reporter: a police union can't comment because it's an internal affairs matter. nobody believes there is any crime here. but many sferps tell me privately, this is not the image they want the public to have of their department.
