health departments to say they are waiting for more doses from the federal allotment. santa clara county just held a clinic yesterday but officials say they do not have enough doses. high concentration of confirmed cases in san francisco and california, the russia is on. >> we'll get another little over 700 doses additionally coming into the county. we don't know when those will arrive. >> it is spread through skin to skin contact for extends periods of time and in most cases have turned up among gay, bisexual or trans people who have sex with men. frank stranna is from the san francisco department of public health. thank you for joining us. >> my pleasure. thank you for asking me. >> i want to start with the allocation strategy. the number of vaccines is staying about the same. so what does this mean, what does that mean for what you guys
need to do? >> well, luckily for each of our allotments that we've been able to get, we've been able to turn them around significantly quick and get them out. so of the 7800 doses we've already received, we've been able to put dosages into people's arms well -- just under 6800 when we anticipate the next allotment we'll do the same thing, rolling it out and administering it as quickly and efficiently as we can. >> so far there have been about 261 reports of monkeypox cases in san francisco. what should people do if they can't get an appointment which is happening to so many people? >> i think it is really important to understand that this is a dance. it really is about self-assessing where you put yourself and at risk. if you are find you have symptoms, see your medical providers, that the most important thing to stop the spread. any time you have a soar or a rash, you could potentially expose it to somebody else.
so be cognizant f. you are looking to get vaccinated, look at where your community health department is. we do have sf.gov/monkeypox where people could visit and we're updating as that as we know what is available for resources. we are our walk-in clinic established when we have doses. right now we've run out of doses earlier in the week, so there are none available for walk-in access. once the doses have arrived and e ablisib them, we will update via social media and the website which i'm suggesting is the best place to co y provider cations you could or walk-in clinic at zuckerberg general. >> good to know. so we know most cases have been reporting among gay and trans men having sex with men. but we are also seeing more cases among the latin x community. is there say specific out reach going on there? >> yes, there is. san francisco has a long
experience with embracing all of our communities, including people who are experiencing huge deficits in access, which are including people of color. so we have a specific team that we'v we'v we've initiated to reach out to offer a -- a vaccine appointment system with local cbo's and we're doing the same thing with other men of color programs. so that we could enhance the disparity and reduce it in fact by offering appointments that will collaborate with their easy access places and get them scheduled. this is built on some of the best case scenario and experiences that we walked away from with covid and how we've reached as many people as we were able to. >> we definitely learned a lot from our experience with that. >> it will be busy, thanks for
having us. re and online at u kpix.com. let's get to jessica burch with a look outside. and it is still foggy. >> it is still foggy. but when you drive home today off in the east hin land hills, it is sunny as could be. we're dealing with dry conditions in our microclimates into the east and north. that is not the case here in san francisco. sts still a gloomy cool day for us today. typical july weather, right. well that is what our microclimates are always do doing -- during the summer. in the 80s this afternoon. that is still below average. 87 today. for the coast and the bay, more 60s in insight. we've been keeping such an eye on air quality index, dealing with an significant onshore flow and i'll break that down in just a bit.

he's choosing to wear his mark on b.a.r.t. he said it doesn't bother him to do so and ultimately it is about safety. >> because you don't know where anybody else has been and some people have gotten to the point where they're just more liberal with how they move around even if they have symptoms. >> and you just don't know who is riding b.a.r.t. he told us he hasn't paid attention to whether masks are required because he sees people continuing to wear them on the trains and he's going to continue to do so himself. there are a few things that the board could consider. the covid positivity rate in the state has come down slightly, but it is still high. covid hospitalizations in san francisco and in other bay area counties have risen in the last couple of months. now it is unclear whether the majority of board will supreme court reinstating that mask mandate, the meeting is expected to underway at 4:00 p.m. with a closed session followed by the public portion of it. of course we'll keep you updated. amanda. >> jocelyn, thank you.
