before the state steps in. >> i know there is a lot of word about state takeovers, and the fear that creates for people, which i completely understand. but as i said, this is an opportunity to really have open conversations about our budgeting priorities. >> we will continue to follow the story closely come and bring you updates both on-air and online at kpix.com . we will have those updates on any decision made by the school board coming up later tonight. a live look at the white house, where president biden will soon return from his trip to europe. tonight he called the cdc authorization of the children's vaccine a turning point in the fight against covid. just about 1 hour ago, the cdc voted to approve the use of pfizer's covid vaccine for children ages 5 to 11 point that means shots can now be given right away. let's go live to kpix 5's wilson walker, met with kids who have questions for doctors about getting those shots. >> reporter: kids had some pretty good questions today, and a lot of questions circulating among parents. how long is it going to take to
get all of the children vaccinated? that depends a lot on demand, and of the past is any prologue, there will be plenty of demand here in the bay area. >> i the question. if i get the shot, can i still get covid? >> reporter: in an effort to get shots in arms, san francisco school leaders took questions from fifth-graders today. >> we are here to encourage our students and families. we think this is a way that we take care of each other. we take care of ourselves, but we also take care of the community. >> we initially identified uppers of fortysomething schools who might need potential vaccination sites. it has been a smaller size around 30 to 35 point >> reporter: contra costa county is mobilizing to vaccinate on-site, but how many parents want their kids to get vaccinated, and where. >> if you're vaccinating an 11- year-old, you take them to
wherever. if you are vaccinating a 5-year- old, you are probably more comfortable going to your pediatrician's office. >> reporter: george rutherford says he expects pediatricians will play a big role in responding to big demand. >> we have the holidays coming up. you have a chance of getting two doses into your child before the december holidays, and i think that people are going to jump on that. >> reporter: the bay area has already seen a large turnout in the other young vaccine set, and the same is expected this time. >> we have been vaccinating 80 to 90% of 12 to 17-year-olds in the bay area, which is vastly higher than what is going on nationally or even in the state. i think here there is going to be a large appetite for it, which is great. >> reporter: the question now, when does the vaccine show up? when do they start administering it? some say it could happen as soon as the end of this week, if not as soon as early next
week. we are live in lafayette, wilson walker, kpix 5. some bay area counties are seeing covid transmission rates rise just as those mask mandates a relaxed. >> kpix 5's andrea nakano tells us every county is now in the cdc's orange or red tear. >> reporter: here in marin county, health officials say this is just going to be part of this next normal. they say they are going to expect to see these ebbs and flows throughout the winter. the case here and there will make a huge difference, especially in a small county like marin. it's not just out happening here in marin county, but the entire area is under cdc's substantial or high transmission categories. marin and san francisco were the only two that dropped down into the yellow or moderate category for some time. laney hendrix, the public information officer for marin, says the county was on the higher edge of the yellow category. this isn't a surprise at all.
she says this back and forth between yellow and orange will probably happen for a while, and transmission rates won't be the only factor in reissuing stricter mandates. >> just because we moved into orange today my doesn't mean we will hurry and reissue mask wearing, because the other two criteria are still looking good. or than 80% of the entire population is vaccinated, and our lower local hospitalization rates are lower than we have seen in months. >> reporter: marin county is also looking to see if that storm had any effect on these high cases. let me explain how that has any correlation. there was a data gap from that time, so as a result, the results of the command, adding to the daily transmission numbers, and it could be a reason for the rise in cases. >> it has been a minute since we talked about the color-coded category system. we are talking so much about vaccinating blanketing kids vaccinated, but it is important to note we will see ebbs and flows. >> reporter: that's what it sounds like here in marin.

>> it's only fair if the commercial crab fleet is going to be sidelined due to perceived risk of entanglement, that the recreational fleet would be as well, because they fish the same way we do. they have crab pods maligns, and buoys like we do. >> reporter: but the president of the cosine fishing club says recreational kpix.com nine have already gotten a 1 week head start before the commercial guise of flood the fishing grounds with more than 175,000 traps. >> it is what we refer to in the trade as a derby fishery. the window opens and everybody goes out and tries to grab as much as they can. we've had this historic head start, sort of a token thrown her way to allow us to get some crab without competition from the commercial industry. 8 sport crabber only account for 4000 traps statewide, so the chances of them getting much without the early head start is slim. method is clients maybe some of
