authorization when we started refreshing, like the walgreens website and the cbs website and trying to find a appointment. over the past week. one pharmacy in northern virginia says it gave adult doses to more than 100. children officials are investigating the mistake and hoping it doesn't add to lingering vaccine hesitancy. similar issues are happening in clinics and other states across the country as well. so far, though, there have been no widespread reports of serious side effects. over more on this, we're joined by dr monica gandhi, ucsf infectious disease specialist dr gandhi. thanks so much for joining us today, i am a parent myself, and i can just imagine if this happened to my child, so many questions would be running through my head. what do parents do if their child is given an adult dose? do you contact the pediatrician? the pharmacy? the cdc. what appearance do. yes i mean, i'm really sorry this happened for these parents because it does feel really concerning the one thing i will say is that 30 microgram was the dose that we give for adults and 10 micrograms is what we give for children. and hopefully one dose
of the wrong type is not going to cause any events or adverse events. but i would absolutely contact the pediatrician and say that this happened but again, u. these doses are somewhat fluid, and this should never happen again because the dose was given as an adult dosage versus the child does. does that mean that the child may not get the second shot? do they wait out for that second shot? do they end up getting the second shot two weeks later? three weeks later, do we know at this point? that's a really good question. i definitely would again wait on the second, i would actually wait on the second shot if there was such a high dose given to a younger person at up 30 micrograms and wait for longer between the doses. there's good reason to do that, anyway. and so i would definitely contact the pediatrician, but i would at least wait six or eight weeks before getting the second shot because the only concern would be side effects that would have corrupted the second shot and the kind of side effects we see.
with the child vaccine with the mrna vaccines can be in males. um very mild heart information. i'm just curious. how does something like this even happen? i mean, we were told that the doses for younger children were in special colour coded vials at the needles were smaller. what do you think went wrong here? i think that everything is happening so fast, and this just started the 5 to 11 year old vaccine and someone. pulled out the one that wasn't color coded. essentially that is exactly right. what you just said that 10 microgram doses are supposed to have a different color top so that this doesn't happen in the future, and it's good for you to talk about it so that it won't happen. one i'm glad you bring that up, because for those kids that are scheduled to be vaccinated either this weekend or in the coming weeks, you know what should we tell parents to do when they arrive to that vaccine appointment? should they ask for a certain color just to ensure hey, can i see that orange vile? what should parents be doing to ensure they get the correct dose for their child? i think they have every right to say, um, just checking. just heard on the news. um uh, you
know, there was some mistakes. i just want to make sure this is the 10 microgram or the orange dose and for me, i'm always going to remember in my head 10 micrograms is the child dose. 5 to 11 and my programs. sounds good. i just want to point out this happened on the east coast. no reports of this happening here in california. we know 100 kids in virginia and maybe some other anecdotal reports out of texas. but nothing here any final advice for parents as they move forward. i know this. like you said, it's so brand new and worries. but this is the kind of coverage that will actually make sure it doesn't happen again. and if we remember what happened at the beginning of the rollout of the vaccines for the adults, there were little things that happened that were important that people reported on and then they didn't happen again. so thank you for covering. all right, dr. monica gandhi, ucsf infectious disease specialist. thanks for coming on the show. maybe putting some curiosities as well. appreciate your time. thank. well, california is making sure that most people who want to covid booster shot can
get one even though the cdc is restricting eligibility, the state's health department contacted healthcare providers telling them not to turn away adults who want a booster shot. and they said that anyone aged 18 or older should be able to self determine their risk and get a booster shot when they're ready to do so. christien kafton joins us now live and christian with kids age five and eligible and adults getting booster shots. appointments are filling up. yes, here in san francisco. they're encouraging kids to get vaccinated and adults who have already been vaccinated to get boosted, and they're saying at this point, they don't have any supply issues. rush is underway to get as many san franciscans vaccinated and boosted as quickly as possible. the city's public health department releasing new data, saying about 18% of kids, 5 to 11 have received covid vaccine and one in three seniors over the age of 65 has received their booster. public health officials are encouraging families to set appointments through their pediatricians for children, but are also preparing to vaccinate at the city schools. as for
finding vaccine those have received a booster shot say the process was fairly easy, and i did just actually get a booster. my experience is that the wait times are about. two weeks in advance. i looked at multiple places that was at the local walgreens here, including cvs, as well as kaiser. i looked at all three places they all had availabilities, usually about two weeks out. search the city's major pharmacies yielded the same results about a week and a half to two weeks. wait for an appointment. i got it as soon as i can, because i want to go back to substituting. i'm a retired teacher, so i want to get back in the classroom. and so i went. been an appointment at cbs, and it was easy peasy families, saying they made the choice to protect themselves and their loved ones before the holidays. i got my booster because i want her to have antibodies. so if you were recently pregnant or breastfeeding, they let you sign up. and so i did. city says at this point they have no plans to
reopen any mass vaccination sites. the department of public health currently sends out about a half dozen mobile vaccination clinics to those high risk sites or individuals like senior living facilities. the city is estimating that in about a week or two, they should be able to accommodate walk ins at department of public health sites as supplies increase where live in san francisco christian captain ktvu. fox two news the big push for booster shots even as we close in on those holidays, christian thank you. two children are home safe tonight after two separate thefts in two different areas, cities surveillance video here from pittsburgh shows the moment a woman stolen suv with a baby inside. oddly enough, a similar situation happened in concord later that night. one woman has been taken into custody in connection with one of those two incidents. ktvu crime reporter henry lee live and conquer. tonight at henry, you talked to the mother of one of those children. christina that mother clearly very relieved after this ordeal now conquered, and pittsburgh police are comparing notes to see the suspect behind bars could be linked to both cases, or this is just a
coincidence. it was a living nightmare, and i'm just very thankful that she's safe with u. now araceli cisneros, paez is grateful that her one year old daughter is back home after a woman stole the family's suv with the little girl inside. that woman is now in custody. i am speechless. there's nothing i could say to him very angry and upset towards her, and i just don't understand why it happened at about 5 45 thursday afternoon near an auto body shop in pittsburgh. in this surveillance video, you see the girl's father making a u turn into chevy taho. he pulls over to talk to another man. and then here you see a woman approach, police say she asked the two men for a cigarette, then suddenly got into the tahoe. he went to check on the baby, and as he checked on her, the lady hopped in the truck and took off with the drink. here. you see the father running after the suv. the woman dumped the tahoe at a nearby apartment complex. neighbors called police less than two hours after the kidnapping. it was parked here for about an hour. i hear and then. one of
the neighbors heard a baby crying and when they heard the baby crying, it flashed the lights and saw the baby. and when they saw the baby, they called the police. the girl was reunited with her family. thank you for literally all the hard work and just doing. their part in just bringing her home safel. just after midnight early frida, a witness spotted a woman matching the description. police arrested 24 year old natalie ayala in a second case at about 10 thursday night and conquered a four month old girl was kidnapped when someone stole a honda odyssey at a shopping centre, agnes hill valley road and clayton. the minivan was found a half hour later nearby with the infant insight unharmed. that baby girl was also reunited with family. the suspect was gone. concord police tell me it's unclear if the two incidents are connected. while it is very similar. we're not going to confirm any speculation on it. we are pursuing all investigative leads. i reached
out of natalie ayala, who's been arrested in the pittsburgh case and requested the jailhouse interview, but she declined. live and conquered. henry lee ktvu, fox two news. up at 5 30, the trial against power written house coming to a close. we're live in kenosha, wisconsin, with a recap of the trial ahead of closing arguments on monday later solving violent crime in the east bay. we dig into the debt on homicides to see what the numbers suggest. about the severe crime issue in oakland. but first how a postal backlog service right now good impact deliveries ahead of the holiday season. a beautiful sunset over san francisco and looking at mostly clear skies, getting into the evening hours likely to wake up with that patchy, thick fog once again, better details on
gruden has filed a lawsuit against the nfl and commissioner roger goodell. according to gruden's attorney. he claims emails were selectively leaked in order to force him out of his job. gruden resigned as head coach of the raiders in october, following the reports that he sent emails containing racist, misogynistic and anti gay language. the emails in question were sent over a seven year period while gruden wasn't espn analyst from 2011 to 2018, and before he was hired with the raiders. one of the two people killed in a small plane crash yesterday in new jersey, has been identified as glenda vries, the 49 year old made news last month as part of the blue origin space flight crew with william shatner. authorities say the plane crash in a heavily wooded area in sussex county. 54 year old passenger, thomas fisher was also killed. investigators are working to figure out what caused the plane to go down. well, if you think package rivals are taking longer, you
are correct. after a disastrous 2020 holiday season, the postal service is now promising. they're ready to handle 2021 ktvu tom vacar joining us live tonight, and he says that some have already noticed delays in shipping and receiving ahead of the holiday season. yes indeed. in fact, covid corporations consumers, even congress all had a hand in deteriorating mailing and shipping this year. given the growing chaos in holiday shipping and shopping by early and ship right away, we got some folks at a san rafael post office who ship on various carriers, mostly just them kind of disappearing off of tracking. um either showing in transit and it should have been like a one week trip and it's you know, three weeks and still no delivery and usps, daddy even first class letters like from pacifica to san francisco seem to take three days. four days now. just got real, real lazy and so few packages. like you
say at least a week sometimes. nonetheless the controversial postmaster general appointed by the last administration has promised this send us your packages and your mail and we will deliver timely. i'm not approving of this postmaster general when he owns a company that competes. with the postal service delivering packages, and he's more looking for i'm going to say business for himself, and it's not just the usps, fedex and ups have been having major challenges to all three of them. yeah i said pretty much across the board with all shipping for italian harvest importer and distributor of fancy italian foods. shipping problems have multiplied to the companies nationwide client that work of individuals and retail consumers. who get deliveries by the big three shippers who blocked says have increased their prices by 25 to 35% there is a lot of damage and there's also theft that has never happened before but that seems
to be a new thing, and it's not just package is gone forever, but once delivered often light but missing contents a lot lighter. then what we shipped out and items are missing. so obviously somebody opened the box removed. the items closed the box again and proceeded to have continued to have a chip. now. shipping tracker ship matrix says that september ground service package deliveries were on time 85.1% for fedex 95.2 for ups. a 95.5 for the post office that does have a longer promised delivery time. but even with that we are shipping so many packages these days. every day, three million packages every day arrive late, if at all, tom vacar ktvu fox, and it's only going to get worse. heading into the holidays, tom. thank you. meantime port officials in
southern california see some signs of improvement. when it comes to the cargo supply jams there were more than 100 cargo ships anchored off the coast this week waiting to unload. at the ports of los angeles and long beach, but port officials say they are moving more shipping containers than they ever have before double lessen the impact of supply chain issues for consumers. i'm trying to order things for my family for christmas now because i hear about these issues, and it's random. sometimes things arrive overnight, and sometimes things arrive a week or two later. well another factor helping move more of the containers is around the clock operations. last month, the white house enacted a plan to keep reports open. 24 7 u. s senator alex body, always in southern california today, talking about the recent passage of the one point true tip $2 trillion infrastructure bill. senator padilla was at the port of long beach just morning outlining how the bill will benefit california supports and waterway infrastructure. the bill is one of the largest investments in the nation's infrastructure in nearly a century. it will invest $17
billion in ports and waterways across the country to help maintain the supply chain across the u. s. we need to make sure that the united states department of transportation continues to actively engage with the california state transportation agency to expand port capacity. keep operations going around the clock. and speed up the funding. from the bipartisan infrastructure build. president biden is expected to sign the infrastructure bill early next week. fabulous while whether day around the bay area with little change expected for the weekend. in fact, we're going to warm things up just a tad so if you like the sunshine and temperatures in the seventies, well, more to come giving you a live look here. as the sun is setting and a beautiful view over san francisco, the golden gate bridge the merida headlands. wow what a spectacular one for you there. here is a look at our air quality for today. good to moderate for most areas and continuing as we get into your bay area saturday, as well as sunday. be moderate at times a

at 63 again, some of the cooler spots fairfield conquered and brentwood 60 degrees. how to make sure i saw that correctly as we get into the evening hours. we do have a little bit of fog along the coastline, but not much. we're going to have that ground level fog come our direction once again from the sacramento san joaquin valley. by tomorrow morning, we also have mid and high level clouds. there's a look at the friday evening at 11 o'clock. then as we get into the overnight hours kind of sweeps through and we see that low lying fog develop over the san joaquin valley, sacramento valley. it tends to push this direction. that's where it comes from this time of year. we also have a little bit of low cloud cover. that will enter in to the bay. so for tomorrow morning, we'll go with partly cloudy skies, areas of fog. if you do have an early morning drive. just be careful. you may find some patchy, dense fog will be here in the morning to track it for you. meanwhile temperature is going to be on the cool side in the north bay 48 over santa rosa 54 in the city of san francisco, low fifties in redwood city, and 51 in fremont, are. temperatures for tomorrow afternoon. 5 to 10
