>> reporter: among those tools, booster shots which one study found are 90% effective at preventing hospitalizations. >> we are talking about between a cold and the flu is where omicron falls if you are vaccinated and boosted. >> reporter: doctors say bottom line remains, sooner more people get vaccinated, sooner the world can get the upper hand on the pandemic. >> people have chosen not to be vaccinated, and that's their choice. we will continue to provide their care. but the ones who are not vaccinated are the ones flocking to the hospitals right now. that's creating the problem. >> reporter: i am john lawrence reporting. >> for more information about covid testing and vaccination, we have a guide at kpix.com. sneaker waves behind unsuspecting people at ocean beach. low swells can switch to a sudden rush of water under the sand and it packs a punch. almost every year people are
