5:03 am
thousands of other patients that will now have the opportunity to get the booster shots. >> reporter: one study shows the chance of a vaccinated transplanted patient getting a break through infection is 82 times higher and the risk of hospitalization or death 485 times higher. in dallas, hospitals say they're running out of icu beds. >> we're more likely, if they have covid, we don't have one. your child will wait for another child to die. >> that was dan ashley reporting. contra costa county announced next month first responders like firefighters, emergency medical personnel will have to provide proof of vaccination. we asked the county's health officer if that means workers could be fired if they don't comply. he said that will be up to the employer but went on to say this. >> it is a legal order. and it's required to be
5:04 am
followed. and so the agency would have to really prevent those staff from working in the field responding to 911 calls, responding to field calls. so it really requires any staff who are responding to field calls and high risk facilities going to hospitals, going to nursing homes, going to jails, homeless shelters, residential living facilities, that they have to comply with these requirements. >> if they don't provide proof they'll have to under go weekly testing. in person visit to santa rita jail has been suspended. the sheriff's office say it is due to a rise in covid cases. professional noncontact appointments are still available. this morning we've learned san francisco county jail hasvia po there's no word on how soon that

5:06 am
testing site. this is the abbott test. eae two tests inside.wee going . the ar that it comewith. youhole. then take the q tip and swab each nostril for 15 seconds. insert the swab into the card, swirl it, close the card and wait 15 minutes. my colleagues used the other test. >> these direct tests don't detect the genetic material of the virus. they detect the actual proteins that make up the virus. basically antibodies react on a little paper strip and turn color, like a pregnancy test. >> reporter: after a few minutes we got our results. both negative. >> they can be very accurate. there's still some concern with some of the tests, you'd want to be thoughtful about how to use it. >> reporter: but sam shed, an er
5:07 am
doctor, said if you follow the instructions, the tests are a powerful tool. if you're positive, you find out in minutes and can quarantine right away, rather than waiting 48 hours for pcr test results. >> it's giving people the ability to get information at home, closer to real-time. it's decreasing the burden on the health system to get tested. >> reporter: the fda authorized both tests for emergency use. kate larsen, abc news 7 news. >> next friday, san francisco is going to require proof of vaccination for indoor activities like restaurants and gyms. the easiest way is that digital vaccine record card from the state. but as melanie woodrow found out, the process has not been easy for everyone. >> reporter: californians have options when it comes to proving you're vaccinated. you can carry your card with you, take a picture on your phone or register your vaccine record digitally with the state. rick sheldon figured that last option was probably the safest.
5:08 am
>> i wanted to be in the system as opposed to having this card that might not even be valid in the future. >> reporter: sheldon and his wife both received the pfizer vaccine. >> her registration went very swimmingly. got her qr code right away, so i knew what was supposed to happen. but when i entered my information, there was an error and my information was not linked properly. >> reporter: a similar experience. >> when i did mine, everything came out correct. i was done in five minutes. there were no problem. my parents weren't so lucky. >> reporter: when his mom tried to register, only one dose came up. >> it was the second date and the second dose is completely missing. then with my dad, the two dates are flipped. >> reporter: the california department of public health declined an interview, but told the eye team more than 2.5 million digital records have been delivered to date and 85% of people who request the record have it delivered. when there's a delay in someone
5:09 am
retrieving their record, it is due to missing or incorrect contact information that was not sent to the state and, therefore, isn't in the state's system. in other words, when a vaccinated person enters into the my vaccine record portal might not match the information someone else entered and sent to the state. cdph recommends using the virtual assistant tool on the website. that's what worked for sheldon after he uploaded his i.d. and vaccination card. >> it was finally resolved and i got the code. >> reporter: chan's parents got the same but they're still waiting. >> i'm not surprised that it hasn't gone smoothingly. but the sepb of urgency, especially in pandemic, i think they'll try to fix these problems much quicker. >> reporter: for the eye team, melanie woodrow, abc 7 news. >> if you have questions about the covid-19 vaccine, you can ask the abc 7 news team at abc 7

5:11 am

5:12 am
minds and students and families as well, but we feel safe and secure with the protocols in place. >> reporter: lauren goss was setting up her kindergarten class, her mother flew in from north carolina to help. she had this advice for her daughter. >> i guess take it day by day. see how the kids are doing. take care of yourself. be there for the children. >> you can look for more stories on back to school all next week on abc 7 as students return to classrooms. we'll bring you a full week of education stories on air and online. let's take a quick break and get a check outside. >> all right, liz. we have a little bit of mist and drizzle at the coach. live look outside, where temperatures are in the upper 50s. few degrees below average with some of the high clouds yesterday. we'll have a little bit of that. we'll talk about the smoke and high pressure building in to the east of us for a hazy hot
