school. people are staying home to take care of those soil and that leads a lot of disrupt. a growing number of experts across the country including dr. chin hong says part of the reason for this disruption from cases is due to the efficacy of the vaccines once touted as a way to stop covid in its tracks. the omicron variants are evading the vaccines and case rates remain high across the bay area. however, the cdc recently said vaccinated people are still around 40 times more likely to survive an infection compared to the unvaccinated and dr. chin hong says vaccines mixed with boosters or even better in preventing severe illness and death. i'm thrilled that are keeping our hospitals pretty much intact not having a flood of people in the hospitals despite so many people getting infected in the old pre vaccine days. i can guarantee you that, you know, we would be really behind the 8th ball dr. chin hong says any booster is better than no booster but troubling new data from the cdc suggests single booster protection against hospitalizations drops from 90%
to 66 to 78% by four to five months out that highlights the importance of a second booster. people over 50 according to dr. chin hong and also the need for an updated vaccine. it's a never ending cycle, and i think people are getting tired of it rightly. so, i mean we need to address that with an updated vaccine that normally deals with severe disease, but can also hopefully prevent infection even more dr. chin hong says the production of the vaccine is an erase against time as the variance continue to mutate. he says funding for the vaccine 2.0 is held up in congress, but but still has hope it will be available. the fall in the south bay dustin dorsey abc 7 news san francisco group is warning the public about a possible monkey pox exposure during a pride event. it involved the afterglow party organized by comfort and joy on saturday, june 25th in a facebook. message the group says it's informing attendees of possible exposure since that disease can be transmitted by close skin to

south bay and right around the bay shoreline tomorrow overnight low on the mild to a uncomfortable side mainly upper 50s to low and mid 60s tomorrow's highs low to mid 60s at the coast low to mid 70s around the bayshore line and up to about 80 or 82 in the warmest inland spots. here's the accuweather seven-day forecast. we'll see and and easing of the humidity on wednesday then on thursday the warming trend begins closer to average temperatures are likely on friday and then saturday sunday and monday we can expect high temperatures inland to be around. 32 degrees mid to upper 70s around the bay shoreline and mid-60s on the coast. that's more like the kind of summer like range we expect this time of the year summer arriving with some force cancer. let's force be with us. all right. thank you. all right, and we will be right back.
