it's expected to get even worse this week, and we could know this week if health officials will allow the johnson and johnson vaccine to be used again in the united states. this is ktvu fox two news at six and we begin tonight with sam, a tail county seeing a sharp drop in vaccine allocation. good evening, everyone i'm frank somerville and i'm julie julie haener, despite the county's efforts to get ability rather andhe vaccine 16 and older who wantseg ligginh more on what's happening and the possible reason why, greg? yeah julie, the official wise
6:01 pm
that the county's allocation from the state has been declining, but it goes much deeper than that. and at least one county official says that's because it appears the cuts and their allocation peers of the deeper then in some other bay area counties, and it's a situation they say, is severely slowing their progress for anyone looking to get their first dose of the covid vaccine and san matteo county this week. the odds are not good. it's like finding a needle in a haystack. very very difficult, extraordinarily difficult. that's because allocations from the state have been dropping from a high of over 20,000 to 11,650 last week and slightly less. for the week ahead and issue the county manager recently addressed in a virtual meeting. it's certainly a point of frustration from many people who are now eligible yet we this week and probably next week. we'll see less supply
6:02 pm
that we've seen for several months. now one resident says frustration is an understatement. a retiree and caregiver for two homebound people, including her 96 year old mom, sylvia says she has struggled to secure appointments emotionally. it's. very overwhelming as a caregiver can on lee understand what they have to do for their people there taking care of with anemic supply, the county no longer has a mass vaccination site like the one that levi stadium in neighboring santa clara county, which broke a state vaccination record thursday, putting shots in the arms of 12,000 people. in one day. that's slightly more than the entire allocation. salmon tail will get this week. officials can't answer exactly why their allocations are declining. but supervisor david canopus says the county had been making excellent vaccination progress. what i'm hoping is on a decision making level at the state. i hope they're not saying because sam matteo county has done so well,
6:03 pm
they don't need vaccines. despite the county's reputation for wealth, canopus as there are still many working class and people of color who need the vaccine when it comes to getting it. sylvia is determined. you never give up on what you need to do. i will be persistent until it's resolved. but. patients is pretty limited now. now no one knows for sure when the allocation situation is going to reverse and start to rise again, but what is known is that when the j and j vaccine was taken out of circulation well, that exacerbated the problem, but it appears it appears that situation could be changing soon. greg liggins, ktvu fox two news, all right, greg. thank you. the u. s has now reached a male major milestone with their vaccine roll out half of all adults in the u. s have now had at least
6:04 pm

6:05 pm
seriously if they just cancel it. i don't think that's gonna happen the past. came after at least six women developed rare blood clots after receiving the vaccine. health officials stress the risk remains extremely low as more than seven million americans have been injected with the one shot vaccine. the abrupt halt, forcing vaccination sites across the country to quickly switch to fizer and moderna, which require people to come back for a second dose. having a one dose allows us to have those folks come in one time to receive that vaccination without having the pressure coming back for another bite. vaccination despite the setbacks, the vaccine campaign is still well underway. cdc data shows roughly half of all u. s adults have received at least one vaccine dose and about 30% are fully vaccinated. still global deaths from covid-19 continued to climb, surpassing three million people on saturday, according to johns hopkins university data. that's the equivalent of the
