8:15 pm
1 million coronavirus patients was likely to experience a dangerous clotting complication. researchers say the side effects are still being studied. and arm. soreness is a pretty common side effect from getting the vaccine. so tiktok users have circulated a solution videos like this one. peoele swinging their arms and wide circle windmill style after getting their doses. sort as hack has now gone viral. but the question is does it really work ucsf infectious disease specialist doctor peter chin-hong is here. >> so doctor, your looks a little odd. apparently it does work. >> yeah, it does work at it i like it. for 2 reasons. first of all, you know, that shot is giving in the muscles enter a muscular the immune system doesn't care where it is just going to go where shot. and so if it stays in muscle, it's probably going to get sore. so
8:16 pm
you can decrease the soreness by moving armor on. and that's why some people think getting the shot in the dominant arm for me. it's my right use a lot is better because you know, it's counter intuitive. you move that on more during the day, you increase the blood flow. the bligh takes a wee the vaccine substance from the muscle into other parts of the body. you're right. it is counterintuitive because i'm right handed to and i got the shot in the left arm because i didn't want my. >> they use more to get sore. but you're saying if you do use of more than that's the good thing. >> unless can you wanted to do the windmill in which case you can get in any arm. okay. >> why is that weighs just blood circulation. just moving your arm like that. is that what we do says this ordinance. >> yeah. it's just a dramatic increasing the blood supply to the area and then you take the use of lot of the highway to take away the vaccine substrate of course you can do other dance moves as mike or,
8:17 pm
you know, whatever. have you or just move the arm without doing dramatic gun salutes heinauer picturing all of doctor. >> hey, i were doing stories about how the airlines are expecting a lot more travel. certainly by summer. if not even a little sooner is that going to raise another level of risk any way doctor or not. >> well, it depends on where airplanes are going on. of a lot of states have the states in the country have i increase in cases somewhat dramatically than others like michigan, minnesota with more than a 100% increase in cases. so if you move people around theoretically, you can spread variance in virus around. on the other hand, if you're protected by vaccinations and it's, you know, other. properties you need from natural infection. like in california right now. you can kind of be a force field. so it all depends.
8:18 pm
>> doctor, want to get back to what we just talked about, a leading up to this interview about the blood clots and the concern about that. are you surprised that they're still holding back on the johnson and johnson because it when you consider 6 blood clot case is fatal cases apparently out of almost 7 million. vaccines administered the chances of that are so extremely low compared to getting a blood clot. when you get coronavirus. >> exactly. i understand the risk is super low. getting struck by lightning is one in 500,000. so i think getting a blood clot in the brain that is in these cases would less likely than being struck by lightning. however, i think the reason for that these being pause is really a time out. so trying to make sure people haven't had these cases have been reported yet. get a better estimate and then what i'm thinking they're going to do is say i everyone can use it on. maybe we're going to be
8:19 pm
restricted people over the age of 50, for because we have so many other alternatives in the united states. all right. doctor peter chin-hong. i as always, great to have you here. >> like your shirt. looks like you're ready for vacation as we all are at this point and thanks again. we appreciate it. thanks much. again. thank you, doctor. >> well, new at california power regulators are stepping up oversight of pg and e after finding the utility neglected the maintenance of an electrical grid and that great ignited a series of deadly wildfires across northern california. it forced periodic blackouts affecting millions of people pg and e has been accused of not doing enough to reduce the risk posed by a combination of crumbling equipment and overgrown trees near power lines and it marks the first step in a process that could eventually lead to regulators revoking pg and e's
