evening, everyone. i'm julie julie haener. i'm andre, senior in for frank ktvu christian captain is live in san francisco and christians. this opens the way for a lot more people who've been waiting to get that shot. health experts are saying that this news came just in time. they're encouraging anyone who is in one of those high risk groups. those are the people who got those first rounds of vaccines when they first came out, remember how difficult they were to get. well health experts are encouraging those people to get their boosters in time for the holiday season. when they first came out. it was a race to vaccinate. now, health officials from the federal to the local levels are backing boosters. the food and drug administration authorized booster doses for those who received the moderna or johnson and johnson vaccines. the fighter booster had been cleared for patients since september. now, health officials say they're working to get those most vulnerable populations boosted. patients say they have their reasons for waiting. i did flew two weeks ago and i wanted to separate him because kaiser said, you can do them together. but since
5:01 pm
nobody almost 71, i decided to separate it. it's part of a trend. san francisco health officials say they're seeing despite having an overall vaccination rate of more than 80. the rate for booster shots appears to be lagging. we don't have the numbers quite yet, but what we are hearing both from our health care systems, as well as our vaccine sites is that foot traffic is not exceeding expectations and so for traffic is down. there's not does not seem like there's a lot of demands. dr baba says the data point to diminishing effectiveness following the initial vaccinations. that's why boosters are so important, she says. it's imperative for those high risk groups to receive the booster shot, including those over 65 years old, those with compromised immune systems and those who have a higher risk of being exposed to covid-19, she says the time for boosters is now before the holiday season arrives. and family and friends begin gathering even with boosters. it still does take two weeks for your immune system to get you back, boosted in terms of, you know, really protecting yourself against coded and actually, we do
5:02 pm
believe think of halloween as the kick off to you know, the winter holiday season. lots of gatherings, lots of people coming together. those who've received the booster shots say it's given them peace of mind. i got rheumatoid arthritis over 35 years. i take humira. which is a biologic. and it suppresses your immune system. so you're more yeah. you're more prone to getting something. the fda also authorized the mixing of boosters. so if you had moderna or johnson and johnson the first time around, you can get pfizer as a booster or vice versa. the hope is that it makes it easier for people to get boosted sooner. in san francisco. christien kafton ktvu, fox two news. kids ages, 5 to 11 will soon be able to get their covid-19 vaccines at their doctor's office, local pharmacy and potentially even at their school today, the white house detailed its plans for the expected authorization of the pfizer vaccine for
