>>from the bay area's local news stations. watching kron 4 news. households earning over a $120,000 have twice the access to vaccines. >>then communities that have been disproportionally impacted that is what we have to reconcile we have to own up to that. >>now at 9 california will begin setting aside 40% of all vaccine doses for people who live in the most vulnerable neighborhoods in an effort to try to not delay people most at risk from coronavirus and get the state's economy open more quickly. >>good evening, i'm ken wayne and i'm catherine heenan.
>>the state says more than one and a half million doses have been distributed in the targeted areas. once 2 million doses have been distributed the state will make it easier for counties to reach the red tier meaning they can resume or activities. more details expected on this and the next few days the contra costa county health department is addressing inequity by adding pop-up vaccination and testing sites. >>in the hardest hit areas there kron 4 sleep chagall has the story. the darkest areas of this map show the portions in contra costa county hit hardest by covid-19 they are located in the lowest court, i'll of the healthy places index. >>where case numbers and test positivity rates are disproportionately high we are focused on coming in communities in west county east county and central county in order richmond, any arc conquered pittsburgh and san pablo have the highest number of positive cases. >>and in all of those cities except san pablo less than 20%
of the population has received the first dose of the vaccine and in all 5 cities less than 10% of the population has received the second by comparison the county's most affluent communities report a higher percentage of vaccinations. >>in walnut creek for example more than 40% of the population has received its first dose and more than 21% are fully vaccinated we have the infrastructure to deliver 75,000 vaccine doses per week but due to a lack of supply contra costa health services chief equity officer gilbert salinas says. >>the county is vaccinating the public at a slower rate than it once despite reaching more than 343,000 administered shots. >>county data shows nearly 33,000 people are being inoculated per week with help from the federal government health services is expecting a rapid increase in access to vaccines in the coming weeks
and it is awaiting word from the governor's office on how to distribute them to disadvantaged communities. now that governor newsom announced equity is a priority announcement that the governor made earlier we're still waiting on direction and process once we get clear on some of we'll have a better response for now the county will focus on increasing mobile and pop-up vaccination and testing sites targeting the latin x community in particular. >>just 13% of that population has been vaccinated compared to 22% of non-hispanic or latino people. in contra costa county felecia call kron 4 news. >>dive a little deeper now into governor newsom's plan to set aside vaccine doses for people who live in disproportionately affected communities and joining us now ucsf infectious disease specialist doctor peter, chin-hong. >>hey doctor well give us your initial reaction to this
doesn't sound like it's enough well it slow things down. >>i think this is a great moves by california i hope it becomes a an exemplar for other states to follow. i think 2 reasons to think about why we need first of all. covid-19 deaths and the really severe illness as well as regular infections, i've been disproportionately seen in latin x and other vulnerable populations 3 times as high. operationally be seen that 2 to 4 times more do taken up in the wealthier areas so it makes sense to me. >>tell me about these numbers doctor hurt some numbers in that story this some numbers i have here 17% of all the doses been given in california gone to the latino community but 55% of all the covid cases in california. the long to latinos is that makes sense and why is there such a big
disparity there. >>this he says is really due to the things that we've been talking before which is free access lack of transportation to get tested in the first place. >>and. >>you know because of the problems in testing it makes no we have surprise in the finding the vaccination rates in these communities are low if you think northern california is when you look at the central valley and southern california. the differences between wealthier and not so areas is even starker. >>doctor a big chunk of doses being set aside does this to anything to affect the supply and other places. >>i know right now it seems really people in general community to to really accept it because i think we're all hurting from more vaccines that we need a lot of
appointments have been canceled. but help is on the i think many of us welcome president decision that the timeline for having enough doses for all americans has been push out to you. the end of me instead of the end of summer i think with the merc with jane g and existing partnership pfizer and sanofi these kinds of rivals getting together the national defense act to produce vaccines is going to really add to that distribution and i assure everyone that soon we'll be seeing that distribution on top. >>yeah, we're hopeful for that because we're talking about now 40% being set aside in the governor's program. he wants to prior prioritize teachers and educators we still have first responders we still have people over the age of 65, it seems like for the rest of us who don't fall into any of those categories we'll have to wait how long.
>>hopefully not too long i take for example, you know the beginning was just a trickle 4 million at the time of the inmates use 20 million doses by the end of march 100 million fortunes change you know by early summer side. that's just one example of things really moving and explanation we not just or doses available and i i think by having these huge distribution sites available in california now coliseum and with blue shield with kaiser and with the feds all streaming in vaccinations this hopefully people will see more and more appointments open up soon. peter chin-hong doctor, thank you very much for talking to us, i know we seem like we are pestering you a lot with these questions. >>but we're all hopeful very soon sooner than later. we're gonna put this behind us, thanks again. we appreciate it.
