6:32 pm
centralized locations and that's why getting the bus is to bring them here is critical, and they'll have to do it. ice with the johnson and johnson one dose vaccine on hold the clinic pivoted to using moderna. that means he'll have to find an often transient population for a second shot. but you know, even having one shot off the madonna vaccine is better than having no shots at all. so there's some protection with that. so you know, to the extent that we were able to great people back, we will make every effort to do that. santa clara county is also bringing shots into the encampments. valley homeless health care program has administered more than 1600 vaccinations to date, 491st doses 333 2nd doses and 847 of the johnson and johnson vaccine. they have a mobile van, but also utilize what they called backpack teams. it's really helpful for us to go to multiple sites because. we've had clients say, you know, i was kind of on the fence, but since you're here, i'm going to
6:33 pm
get it. so it's kind of nice to meet them where they are the gold to vaccinate as many as possible in this vulnerable population, the city hall clinic offered wraparound services even help filing for stimulus checks. for those who showed up there hopeful the success of this event bodes well for the next one. so we need to be creative for the second shot in having new incentives for people to come and do this. officials say they administered more than 500 doses. today, the follow up clinic is set for may. 14th and ruben ktvu, fox two news vaccines are being given out this weekend to committee members in east oakland. stay was the first day of a weekend covid-19 vaccination clinic at actual gospel church on 66th avenue the church is played an active role in east oakland for close to four decades and services. safe space for everyone, especially

6:35 pm
know it being for the for the blacks and the hispanics, because i mean those when you say those type of things is like, yeah, you say that they were tested, but we don't know the results to those tests when we tested the vaccine in african american and hispanics, it was safe. and it induced the kind of response that was literally identical to the response in whites. it was the same is whites safe, according to the cdc, just 5% of black people in the united states have been vaccinated and just 9% of latinos. after more than a year, the san jose sharks are welcoming back, fans will be allowed into that s a p center on april 26 when the sharks host he arizona coyotes fans. ages to it up will be required to test negative for covid-19 48 to 72 hours before the game or have proof that they've been
