>> when fun time from the bay area's local news station. you're watching kron. 4 news. >> and it is official. the fda formally approves pfizer's covid-19 vaccine. but will it change minds and what will that mean for vaccine mandates. thank you for joining us here on kron, 4 news at 10. i'm pam moore and i'm ken wayne, an important milestone in the fight against coronavirus in a summer surge fueled by the dangerous delta variant the fda today formally approving pfizer's covid vaccine our grant lotus standing by here in the studio tonight with the latest details grant pam ken, the 2 dose pfizer shot was of course, first authorized for emergency use. that was back in december for people 16 in up now. 12 and up can get it. and since then, it has been administered and. >> something of an experimental phase, but that all changed today, full fda
approval carries the agency, strongest endorsement of a product that we have that now. and this comes after more than 188 million doses of the vaccine have been administered. so far in the u.s. in the fda had a lot of data to work with when determining just how safe the vaccine is the agency inspected. the company's manufacturing plant as part of this approval process and health experts say this has 3 major benefits. first only a fully approved vaccine can be advertised publicly. so you can expect a bigger marketing. push it get people the shot. secondly, people who maybe didn't want to get the shot because it hadn't been fully approved. well, it might be more likely now to roll up their sleeves and thirdly, it makes it much easier for employers and the military universities to mandate vaccinations.
>> if the majority of them and i think it will be are going to be and effects nation for either all or some of their employees. you're talking about a large swath of the american public. so it's going to make it make a very big difference. the fact that it sends up to that. >> is good news. and because the rest of the world looks at that legitimacy. the people who may be on the fence and rest of the world was more has sent about it may also then see it as our way forward. >> today's announcement has already created a ripple effect in terms of mandates here in the bay area. san francisco city employees now have 10 weeks from today. that's november. first to prove they are fully vaccinated. the city was waiting for the fda to grant that full approval before issuing that 10 week countdown november first in san francisco. once that takes effect, san francisco will join san jose where a mandate for city employees went into effect today and the city of
richmond is now requiring all city personnel to be fully vaccinated by october 18th. now that the pfizer vaccine is fully approved. we may see other cities issuing similar vaccine mandates will keep you posted their camp. and for now, back to hugh grant. thank you for that. well, although the pfizer vaccine has been fully approved. still a lot of work for the fda yet to be done. there are more covid vaccines that need full approval and children under the age of 12 still can't get the shot until the fda says so. >> on 4 mccall live for us in the newsroom with that part of the story. jonathan and ken, good evening this approval for the pfizer vaccine for the full authorization done. the warp speed, according to the food and drug administration. >> it took them only 97 days to pour through 340,000 pages of the pfizer application. we've learned that another vaccine could just be weeks away from full use authorization wall. the 3rd could be months away.
>> there were 3 letters that matters most when it comes to getting the green light from the fda. that's a bla or a biologics license application once approved companies no longer are in emergency use authorization and can fully market its products through advertisements and direct marketing to consumers. moderna started submitting its application to the fda back in june just weeks after pfizer some believe that moderna could get the full use authorization in a matter of weeks. johnson and johnson has not yet submitted its bla application yet but could do so by the end of the year after monday's announcement, a number of entities across america wasted. very little time making the vaccine mandatory the pentagon said that the vaccine will now be required for all us service members. the city of new york also announced that more than 100,000 teachers will now be required to get the vaccine. united airlines shortened its deadline for workers to get the vaccine. initially they had until october 25th that
changed on monday. 2 september 27th despite its full use authorization. the fda, though, is still warning against using the vaccine on children younger than the age of 12. keep in mind, though, that with that full use authorization off brands in generic brands of the vaccine can also now hit the open market. >> and that does have the fda concerned that some parents will use the vaccine on kid owes younger than the age of 12. the fda warning parents not to do that, saying they still need more time to gather more data about the impacts of the vaccine in that age group. but during an interview tonight on nbc nightly news. the head of pfizer said that the company is actually in the process. i'm making a vaccine specifically targeting the delta variant, but he says they don't think they'll actually needed because the current vaccine is effective in the newsroom tonight jonathan mccall kron 4 news. jonathan, thank you for that. the director of california's health department is also celebrating the full approval approval of the pfizer
vaccine. in a statement. >> doctor tomas going said, quote, for weeks we have watched cases go up an alarming pace among individuals who are not vaccinated while the vaccinated are largely protected, especially against severe and long-term illness. we know the vaccines work. we know vaccines are safe. we know they save lives. if you're not vaccinated, let this be the milestone that gets you there get vaccinated to protect yourself and help put an end to this deadly pandemic and quote, more than 10,000 new cases of covid were reported today in california and 3 new deaths. those numbers include totals from over the weekend. 65% of the state's eligible population is now fully vaccinated against covid. another 10% has gotten at least one dose. >> happening tomorrow. one of the most iconic church is in san francisco is issuing its own vaccine mandate. grace cathedral will be requiring proof of vaccination for anybody age 12 and up. church
leaders say the move follows guidance from public health officials that on events and on gatherings. well, for dan thorn is live in san francisco tonight. he joins us with more on this decision by the church. dan. >> well, pam, church leaders say that we're still in a public health crisis. so they want to keep their visitors and there many parishioners safe during this time churches are not involved or included rather in the city's proof of vaccination mandate. but because of the amount of people that go here to grace cathedral and the amount of events events that they hold the church leaders say that instituting this mandate is the right thing to do. the esteemed grace cathedral in san francisco's hill is putting in place its own proof of vaccination for visitors citing a growing covid-19 case rate and the amount of people who attend or visit the large place of worship. >> church leaders say the mandate is necessary as a matter of life and death. a number of deaths and the
number of hospitalizations particularly unvaccinated people. so. >> we're saving people's lives. dean malcolm clemens young says there's been a mixed response to the plan within the congregation. but he feels more are for it than against it. the city's vaccine requirement regarding indoor spaces does not apply to churches. dean young says everyone at the church should feel healthy and safe and vaccines and masks are the best way tocdo that. being able to be out in the world. such a blessing and a gift. it comes with a responsibility. the responsibility is getting vaccinated. >> tourists who come to see the inside of the cathedral will also be subject to the mandate. grace cathedral is one of the largest up his couple cathedrals in the country and has some congregants of churches throughout the u.s. reject innoculation grace cathedral will continue to support it. >> i really do encourage other religious leaders talk to a number of them in. they keep saying to their congregants. they say it's a matter of personal choice. it's a matter. i'm not a doctor. that all those kinds of things and those that's not helpful.
