5:00 pm
the debate centering on the risks versus the benefits of continuing to use the j and j vaccine. speak today to you with hope and concern. friday the 15 member cdc advisory committee on immunization practices gave hours of testimony online. the issue resuming use of johnson and johnson single dose covid-19 vaccine. this pause has been effective in increasing awareness of the rare and serious defense. april 13th, the federal government ordered a pause in the use of the drug. at that time, six women developed brain blood clots now a total of 15 cases are under investigation, with one person having died so far, there are already two vaccines out there that do not have this problem as far as we know. so i think if this was the only vaccine out there, we would be answering. a very different question would be dealing with something very different. south bay health officials say a lack of the j has not
5:01 pm
impacted their overallof course, embrace whatever guidelines and recommendations, the s e e i p provides to us national experts debated to recommendations worrying and explicit warning would scare away potential takers. johnson, johnson's medical chief says the risk of death is infinite testable compared to the thousands of lives that can be saved by using their vaccine. the vaccine provides access to people who are under served as well, a certain populations that typically face barriers to help your services. i move that we in the end, the committee voted 10 to 4, with one abstention. remove the pause. i am concerned that, um, that the consumers and women in this age group in particular will not be adequately informed. committee members say they're depending on the c, d. c and f d a to jointly come up with a fact sheet that they can provide to member agencies to help them
5:02 pm
explain to women precisely the risk they're facing before they get the covid vaccination. hopefully, that'll come along. in short order. we're live in san jose, jesse gary ktvu fox two news will head back to you, jesse. thank you. california has now administered more than 27 million doses of coronavirus vaccines, according to the latest data, there are now over 365,000 shots a day being given out in the state and 44% of california's population of around 40 million has received at least one dose and about 28% are now fully vaccinated. santa clara county has hit a vaccine milestone over one million people in the county have now been vaccinated. santa clara county says it was able to do this through a network of partnerships, county health officer dr sarah cody says this is a really big deal because with one million people vaccinated, the county can now see a clear path out of the pandemic. and while santa clara
5:03 pm
county officials say this milestone is worth celebrating the also recognize that they're still ah, lot more work to do ktvu the and ruben joining us now and really those who wanted to be vaccinated already are those who are not probably still need some more convincing, yes, but officials say they have a plan. it involves more outreach, education and expanded hours at some of those vaccination sites. wait and no problems. randy han couldn't believe how simple it was to get vaccinated it over felt high school in san jose. all today is the like, just like a breeze. it's very easy plenty of parking space, in fact, all over santa clara county. there's plenty of vaccine and for the first time officials are seeing appointment. go unused. we have enough vaccines to not only make sure that those big sites or taking care of but. every site in our community has appointments right now, at a
5:04 pm
news conference, the county mark tamayo, i'll stone one million residents have received at least one dose, but officials recognize it gets harder from here. as we always say the first million is easy. and the next 500,000 is going to be a little tough, so they're making changes expanding night and weekend hours at some vaccination sites. and focusing on education and underserved areas. we're doing lots and lots of outreach, including going door to door to see whether there's anyone in the home that hasn't been vaccinated that would like to be vaccinated. they're not alone. marin county is doing outreach to and so is contra costa county, where they've been using social media, bulk text messages and a spanish language campaign to let people know about available appointments, gardner health services says we have to do something we went from having you know, i show up at the plaza like you know, 7 30 in the morning ande would have 600 people waiting waiting.
5:05 pm
gardner runs the walk up clinic at san jose's mexican heritage plaza. they say they're working hard to get the word out about safety and convenience. but they say, convincing, those still on the fence won't be easy. so now we need to reach the rest of the people that are not sure. you know they're they're kind of borderline. they're waiting to see what happens. you know those we want to reach them now. against santa clara county is already expanding weekend hours at some locations and in the near future they planned on extending into evening hours in some cases as late as nine pm christina and ruben reporting live for us tonight, and thank you. all right, joining us now to talk more about the challenges rollout moving forward as well as the big announcement today that the johnson and johnson vaccine will now be put back into use in this country after a short pause, doctor vanilla sing professor at stanford school of medicine and former chief medical officer with the
5:06 pm
department of health and human services, doctor saying, always great to have you want here. so this cdc advisory panel in essence decided that the benefits of the j and j one dose vaccine. outweighed the risks here when it comes to these very serious blood clots. how did these experts reached this conclusion? and do you think it's the right call? yeah. get afternoon, alex. yeah i actually think this was a very important and the right call to make when it comes to the johnson and johnson vaccine, the fda and cdc chose to pause be ht because when you look at the number of vaccinations given by this one shot vaccine. close to eight million. the 15 incidences or so of the blood clot in the brain really actually paled in comparison. and, of course, it's still a concern. it is something that
5:07 pm
will be continued to watch. but all in all, this was a new, important recommendation at this time. yes. so the j and j shot is now going to come with a warning. as you said, warning women under 50 about that the slight risk of those blood clots. the women who have become a sick in these cases were between the ages of 30 and 39. that's the group at greatest risk here of developing these blood clots here, what would you say? t someone who who is in that group? would you recommend that they try to get a dose of a different vaccine. that's right. that would be really the next question about women who are b and 48 againmight be very concernedt the truth is, it is considered to be a minimal risk. the 15% advisory committee looked into all of that and all the incidences that have been reported. it is,
5:08 pm
of course concerning when you think about it in comparison, birth control pills, for example, something that's taken much more open and commonly, historically, also, as an example of something that can increase the risk of blood clots, so we know that. even common medications and have risks that are out there. but of course, you know the key thing is, is that women monitor their symptoms if they have any additional risk of clot or a pressed deep vein thrombosis to talk to their doctor, but all in all, really the take home message. or women is that it is generally considered to be very safe that the minimal rare risk is something that really shouldn't impact their decision and really the benefit of having a one shot vaccine still greatly outweighs. risk of this, this readable a spine sinus from bos is that we've seen these blood clots. all right,
5:09 pm
moving on from the from the j and j news, and i want to ask you about the vaccine rollout and where we sort of stand in this country. obviously we saw that strong early push as the biden administration took over millions of people have received their doses all across the country. but it does seem as though we are plateau in here where there is more supply than there is demand in a lot of places a lot of available appointments that that i've been hearing about, especially here in the bay area. how concerned should we be about the lack of interest at this point, and what are going to be? the challenge is moving forward in this next phase of the vaccine rollout. yes. so here a couple of key concerns or that those folks who have still not been vaccinated, many of them may still have a deeper concerns about having the vaccine. it may not be a simple issue of just having gone and not have the chance yet to get it, so there has to be a greater concerted effort. i
5:10 pm
think people need to know that most everybody who's gotten the vaccine have had generally very smooth course. the efficacy of this vaccine is not only important for the covid-19 disease as we know it, but even these emerging variants that we're hearing about that are the cause of second surges in michigan or even in oregon, for example, are because there are these variants, but those people who are vaccinated, they're still protected against severe disease, so it's really important that folks know. that the vaccines are safe and they're efficacious and that the very ends and the current covid issues are still very real. andre the efforts are gonna have to be doubled. we heard from santa clara county that they know that the next half a million or so backs they're gonna have to be something that they really go after. yeah, this is going to be a challenging effort for sure moving forward here to reach herd immunity, dr videla saying always appreciate your time. thank you. thank you,
5:11 pm
alex. yeah. all right, coming up for us here at five o'clock for the first time in more than a year, fans air headed back to chase center in san francisco tonight at 5 30. we'll have a look at the excitement and the challenges of welcoming crowds indoors during a pandemic, and a political novice with a huge celebrity. following now running for office, we have heard that before today, caitlyn jenner announced she is running to unseat governor newsome. coming up next. does she have a chance? we're going to talk to a political expert. next senator warmer weather over the bay area this afternoon, but i do see changes in time for the weekend. the mostly cloudy one expected for your bay area saturday, your bay area saturday, followed by the potential ♪ ♪ ♪ when it comes to your financial health,
5:12 pm
just a few small steps can make a real difference. ♪ ♪ ♪ learn, save and spend with guidance from chase. confidence feels good. chase. make more of what's yours. i'm morgan, and there's more to me than hiv. more love,... more adventure,... more community. but with my hiv treatment,... there's not more medicines in my pill. i talked to my doctor... and switched to... fewer medicines with dovato. prescription dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with... just 2 medicines... in 1 pill,... dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed... and get to and stay undetectable... can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to any of its ingredients... or if you take dofetilide. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while taking dovato.
5:13 pm
or become life-threatening. or if you take dofetilide. serious or life-threatening side effects can occur, including... allergic reactions, lactic acid buildup, and liver problems. if you have a rash and other symptoms of an allergic reaction,... stop taking dovato and get medical help right away. tell your doctor if you have kidney or liver problems, including hepatitis b or c,... or if you are, may be, or plan to be pregnant. your doctor may prescribe a different medicine... than dovato if you plan to be pregnant or if pregnancy is confirmed during the first trimester. dovato may harm your unborn baby. use effective birth control... while taking dovato. most common side effects are headache, nausea,... diarrhea, trouble sleeping, tiredness, and anxiety. so much goes... into who i am. hiv medicine is one part of it. ask your doctor about dovato—i did.
5:14 pm
hiv medicine is one part of it. activist caitlyn jenner announced today that she will be running for governor of california jenner, who is 71 years old has never run for office before, reporter cristina gonzalez tells us gender may be best known in the growing field of republicans hoping to replace governor newsome if there's a recall. this is one of the more again predictable celebrity candidacy is that we're going to see in this recall weighing in on caitlyn jenner's tweet announcing that yes, she is in candidate for governor of california if the recall against gavin newsom gets enough signatures, which many political analysts seem to think is a given. this is the moment where republicans are going to try and clear the field. they're not gonna wait until. the recall officially
5:15 pm
qualifies for the ballot. they're going to try and get the support now they're going to try and get the media now, the fact that you and i are talking about caitlyn jenner's candidacy is a win for her candidacy. it means that she's getting free media and jenner is the topic of conversation. former governor brown with our alex michaelson on fox elevens political show the issue is at the end of the day. will come down to how people are feeling about the state and the stewardship of governor newsome. so that's the big issue and there'll be a subside dramas. but i don't think that caitlyn jenner will a substantial night and i don't think she'll affect the outcome. kidding jenner is being described as the first major trance candidate for governor in america by log cabin republicans who work with the republican party advocating for the l g. ridicu community. she really does change the narrative that you don't have to be a leftist democrat to be
5:16 pm
in the lgbt community and to be politically active, and she shares so many of those common belief that conservatives do you can see her campaign is already getting funding online. but will that be enough? do i think republican has a chance? no do i think, a celebrity republican has a chance? no. with this caveat if things really turn for the worst when it comes to the virus when it comes to the vaccine roll out when it comes to the economy when it comes to keeping kids in schools. could that change things? yes cristina gonzalez. fox news, and joining us now to talk more about generous announcement is sonoma state political science professor and chair david mcewen. david great to see you today. i saw caitlin suite this morning. i'm in and, you know, i just want to know whether or not your surprise.now she's a political newcomer. right. she's a political newcomer who also hasn't voted
5:17 pm
or participated at a higher rate. we don't know her positions. this is the high water mark of her campaign is today. this is some place between folly and novelty. that's probably for polity in terms of where she's at. she won't be the only. candidate who's going to come in as a celebrity? there will be others. the bar is not hard to enter, and because the bar is not hard because it's not a very high bar to get in. there's gonna be lots of people. we had 135 people run in 2000 and three on that that means that you're going to have in the era of social media with the bar. that's basically the same. you're gonna have potentially hundreds of candidates. so buckle up because this is about to get pretty wild, especially as the secretary of state begins to certify the signatures by their deadline of next week. right, considering the fact that not only do voters have to recall newsome, then the person of the choice has to have 50% of the vote, and i'm assuming that's going to be unlikely, given the fact that field of candidates is so crowded. i'm curious, though, whether or not she has any type
5:18 pm
of shot on lee, because what history has shown us is that we have seen former governor arnold schwarzenegger. we've seen jesse ventura even. president trump went right and so the politics of kind of tilting at windmills is one thing. the politics of trying to run the fifth or sixth largest economy in the state, are in the world rather and trying to run that large economy in the midst of a pandemic is going to take more than a novelty or the folly of celebrity. it's going to take some seriousness about policy positions. gavin newsom was elected. at the highest rate of the modern democratic governor that we have seen in california, right? he got 62% of the vote. that's a big number. his popularity has come down. there are a number of people that are going to enter this race. but the politics of celebrity that you point out there, whether that's donald trump or arnold schwarzenegger, that is a component to a recall. it can be a wild animal, but we don't know what that's gonna look like in terms of the final celebrities that might get involved until sometime in august. because of that. this
5:19 pm
is the first moment where we see that, but you're potentially going to see four or 500 candidates house a candidate going to get oxygen. well, they're gonna need a plurality of the vote, and it cost $4000 to get on the ballot for 7000 signatures. and that means a lot of people are going to think about this silicon valley zillionaires. celebrities be celebrity. see celebrities. everyone is going to think about getting in. that will be a challenge for gavin newsom and his team because they also want to keep out if you will, any potential democratic rivalries that also want to get in. sure, and i'm just considering the fact that he must be somewhat worried about the state of this recall effort, given the fact that his campaign sent out fundraising efforts in an email just hours after caitlin announced she was running, saying he wanted to keep up with her wealth. what do you think about that? well, they want to keep up, they'll be able to raise money and they're going to take every opportunity to go on the offensive. one thing the watch here is the degree to which someone say, like donald trump gets involved in this race.
5:20 pm
perhaps he makes a plea for money. maybe he doesn't show up in california, but maybe he makes an attempt to raise money. kevin mccarthy does this for republicans. donald trump is not very popular in california. he is someone who can join if you will and nationalize this race, nationalizing this race is hugely important because joe biden and kamala harris will also play a role. that means the recall of governor newsome. if that moves forward, it looks like it will will be deep political story of the year. so this is just the beginning. hence, buckle up because here we go. very interesting to watch, considering caitlin considers herself part of the lgbtq community, and we've already seen some groups come out and say they won't be supporting her just because of her ties now with president trump's campaign and team course interesting all the way around. what an announcement today david mccue, and we're gonna have to leave it at that at that. thank you so much for joining us today. thank you very much for having me. well after more than a month of dry weather. we do have rain in the
5:21 pm
