person learning. that is one requirement in the new tentative agreement between the san francisco teachers union and the school district. the teachers say they will go back if the city is in the red tier and all educators have been vaccinated. teacher vaccinations have not started in san francisco and the city is in the purple tier. but the union says this is a path to reopening. >> that's true in the red tier. if the county gets the orange tier we do not require that vaccines be available to teachers. so we are not requiring that people who will be still continuing to teach from home be vaccinated to be clear. so it will be the teachers who will be returning to classrooms. >> reporter: this tentative agreement still needs to be voted on by the school board. it comes after the city of san francisco sued the district last week saying the district needs a reopening plan. san francisco is still busy vaccinating its over 75 population and health care
workers so they haven't moved down to that lower tier yet. they do have mass vaccine sites open and ready to serve. officials say the issue is they need more supply. reporting live from fremont, amy hollyfield, abc 7 news. >tain sonoma thank u. county will vaccinate people 70 and older at county clinics and some safeway pharmacies. 11 stores are offering vaccinations by appointment only. each pharmacy will have the capacity to administer up to 20 vaccinations week days only. others include the fairgrounds, and sonoma valley high school. ambitious benchmarks for san mateo county. health provider ramped up vaccination efforts and plan to vaccinate 10,000 a day starting today. vaccinations will be done at the san mateo event center and by appointment only for eligible patients. traffic there is changing to help manage the influx of visitors so be careful driving if you are in the area.
the nation's top health experts say vaccine rollout is getting momentum. the centers for disease control says that more than 2.2 million doses were given out on saturday. that brings the seven-day average to 1.4 million shots a day, but still not enough to meet demand. however dr. anthony fauci says the supply issue should start to improve. >> even though there's a clear discrepancy between the demand and supply that will get better as we get through february into march. >> the cdc is reporting that 9% of americans have received at least one shot. officials are also counting on the fda authorizing a one dose vaccine from johnson & johnson later this month. south africa is suspending the use of astrazeneca's vaccine. id it ges just minimal protection against mild to moderate illness in cases caused by the more contagious variant that is
dominant in the country. it wasn't clear if the vaccine protected against severe disease. if it does south african health officials will consider resuming its use. astrazeneca issued a statement overnight saying that study was small and mostly with young healthy adults. they also said, quote, we believe our vaccine will protect against severe disease caused by the new variant as neutralizing antibody activity is equivalent to that seen with the other covid-19 vaccines. new this morning an apartment complex in san jose was evacuated overnight because of a carport fire. the san jose fire department says three vehicles were in flames by the time they arrived at the complex around 1:00 a.m. you can see what it looked like as crews were mopping up in this video here. two units above the carport were damaged by the fire. nobody was hurt. and the senate impeachment trial of former president donald trump is set to begin tomorrow. jobina joins us from the live desk with a look at the differences between this trial and his impeachment one year
ago, jobina. >> thank you, liz. he's facing a single article of impeachment here accusing him of inciting the january 6th riot on the capitol. the former president will be the first to undergo an impeachment trial after leaving office. he's also accused -- he also is the first to be impeached twice. but there are key differences between this trial and the first. first of all, trump is no longer president and therefore cannot be removed from office. another contrast from trump's first trial, no republicans voted to impeach. this time ten lawmakers crossed party lines including wyoming's liz cheney who stands by that decision. >> we've never seen that kind of an assault by a president of the united states on another branch of government and that can never happen again. >> it would take 67 senators to vote to convict trump, meaning democrats would need the support of 17 republicans to secure conviction. meanwhile, a new abc news/insis
poll says the majority of americans say trump should be convicted barring him from holding federal office ever again. the biden administration plans to rejoin the u.n. human rights council that comes nearly three years after former president trump withdrew the u.s. from it. the trump administration pulled out of the council in 2018. they accused the u.n. body of biased against the u.s. ally israel and failing to hold human rights abusers accountable. the u.s. will return as a nonvoting observer through the end of the year. the biden administration is hoping to fill one of three full member seats. new at 6:00, tampa bay buccaneers head coach bruce airns and celebrating this morning. d the buccaneers to a 31-9 ive victory over the tdefending cha the kansas city chiefs. the victory gave brady his fifth super bowl mvp and a record seventh super bowl win.
