we are and what we represent. how do we ensure real investigations and accountability of these incidents and these crimes as a her how do we ensure that we're putting victims and survivors first. >> community members say about 90% of the attacks do not fit the legal definition of a hate crime. so now they're planning to ask the department of justice to begin tracking hate attacks as well as hate crimes. >> the investigation into tuesday. spa shootings that left 8 people dead including 6 women of asian the center still ongoing tonight. authorities promise that nothing is off the table, including the possibility of a hate crime. president biden, vice president kamala harris's visit denounce the violence when they were in atlanta today. joe khaleel has a closer look. people killed. >> 7 women. 6 are of asian descent. >> all fellow americans.

anti-asian discrimination than beyond angry and frustrated right now because i really personally don't know how to make bigger to say that we need help. people are literally dying. president biden expressed support for the covid-19 hate crimes act working its way through congress. it defines what a covid related hate crime is and calls for expedited reviews of those incidents. we owe you a gigantic. >> debt of gratitude. >> and we were from long long, long time before the somber occasion. president biden and vice president harris made a visit to the centers for disease control. you are model. for the world. around what can be done. they talked about the administration's response to covid and the cdc's role in setting guidelines rooted in good science. making difficult decisions right now. some of the most difficult. but you're making those decisions based on science. >> based on hard work and based on a commitment to the public health.

particularly troubling, of course, given the heightened anti-asian violence happening in the country. in a statement fellow school board member jenny lam, the only chinese american member of the board asked collins to step down saying among our students, 40% are asian american and pacific islander collins must address her comments instead her refusal to apologize takes time and energy away from our work at the district. she says i'm asking the commissioner to provide a public apology at the next board meeting calling for her resignation from the board of education. several san francisco suisors are also saying that collins should step down. >> another big story tonight, more children will now be able to be in the classroom after the cdc updated guidelines were released today rather than 6 feet of separation. the new guidelines say students can safely sit just 3 feet apart and it removes the recommendations of plastic partitions between desks. this
can only happen, though, if there is a 100% masking going on in the classroom. the cdc says 6 feet should still be maintained in common areas such as school lobbies. and when mass cannot be worn such as when children are eating. and the united states has hit a major milestone today in a race to vaccinate against the coronavirus you know, 100 million doses have been given to americans. and that is. >> a 42 days ahead of schedule because the president had set a goal to hit that mark in his first 100 days in office. now he's setting his sights even higher. the u.s. is vaccinating about 2.5 million people a day and might set a 200 million dos goal by the one 100th day in office. the u.s. is on pace to have enough of the 3 currently authorized vaccines to cover the entire adult population in about 10 weeks. >> the bay area, though, is continuing to suffer from vaccine shortages this week. thousands of appointments at kaiser permanente were
canceled because of a lack of supply. the santa clara county health system says it didn't get enough vaccines from the state. so now they're transferring kaiser patients appointments that were with the county back to kaiser. the state had indicated that kaiser would have an effect scenes for its members have their vaccination sites. but some patients are being told there are no appointments available. >> yeah. he's checked every where santa is a mosque at us sunnyvale. sees as santa clara county does not have any second round back scenes and tell late april april 25th and a symbol that sounds and i went out meals. well, let's look at another county. what kind check check santa nothing check. sacramento. nothing. >> kaiser says in a statement that they're, quote, setting up a special schedule appointments locally to vaccinate in a timely manner whose members whose appointments were canceled by santa clara county. we're reaching out starting today to these members to confirm they will have convenient access to the vaccinations they expected to go on to say that there are
other factors that are leading to frustration for those who have not received a vaccine and along with the supply shortages. there are a lot of questions being raised over how effective the state's vaccine distribution plan. >> really is. and kron four's. dan thorn he's live in san francisco. he joins us with more on what the experts are saying. dan. >> well, catherine knows experts are acknowledging that there has been some stumbles in terms of getting people vaccinated. but when it might seem like california is falling behind other states in terms of distribution, those same experts say that we need to keep in mind the size and the population of this state that makes us unique. california is ranking near the bottom when it comes to vaccine. equity says a new report from the centers for disease control and prevention earlier this month, the state announced it was setting aside
40% of vaccine doses for the hardest hit communities and most vulnerable populations. despite that ranking governor newsome on friday praised how the state is doing so far and are proud of the work we're doing on equity know the stay in the country is doing that. >> it goes deep to the conversation we're having today the issue of equity. so we're not going to back off on that commitment and health experts note it's important to keep in mind the size and diversity of california. when comparing vaccinations success to other states. ucsf professor an infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin-hong says california is complex. of course, when you look at us compared to. >> north dakota or new mexico or alaska. we're going to look really bad part of the frustration with the vaccine rollout comes from who has been prioritized. >> and how slowly we appear to be advancing. but doctor chan hong says a vaccination program of this scale has never been done before. and the biggest problem is supply not strategy. i feel like we could still be doing a lot
better at this in the because of the heroes. we had to overcome in the beginning when it was really rocky and where the expectations set by many of the leaders were not. >> the reality on the ground. i think right now they are doctor chan. hong is proud with how california is doing in terms of vaccinating the vulnerable 65 plus age group and how the state is at least looking at equity, making sure that all communities have access to the vaccine even though we're limited in number right now. and that means vulnerable. >> and this advantage regardless of race and that the you know, in the poorest areas in our state. >> well, governor newsome has argued that the 40% overlay should continue in those underserved communities because it is the right thing to do. and he also argues that in order to move forward in terms of our economic recovery. we also need to continue to focus on those that have been hardest hit by this virus reporting live in
san francisco. dan thorn kron 4 news. thank you, dan. >> also during his visit today, governor newsome discuss president biden's call to make vaccines available to all adults who want one by may. he reaffirmed that in about 5 weeks. the phased vaccine tear system in california will be dropped making all californians eligible. but we're in a scarcity frame. and next week we should get 1.8 million and we're anticipating within 5 and a half weeks where we can eliminate all of that hearing, so to speak. and make available vaccines. everybody across the spectrum because supply will exponentially increase. the governor said currently the state is distributing more than a million doses. every 3 days. >> and our coronavirus coverage continues on our website. kron 4 dot com. you can find links to vaccine clinics across the bay area. the details that you will need
