8:03 am
still in a severe drought. but some good news is on the way. we are going to be getting some rain. i'll tell you more about that coming up in just a bit. >> happening today, a cdc panel is going to need to consider whether it's ok and safe to resume the johnson and johnson vaccine. last week. they call for more data about a possible link with rare blood caught clots before they decide what to do. they paused during this examination of why 6 women out of the 7 million who have gotten the shot got blood clots, which are very rare. all of them were between the ages of 1418 and 48 and the symptoms occur within a week or 2 weeks of the vaccination. one person died and they are considering what to do. the word is from fauci that he thinks still go ahead and say it is safe because 7 million people safely. getting is a lot, but he says the probably going to have warning so that you know what to watch out for. >> all right. at 83 speaking of vaccines, if you haven't
8:04 am
already received your vaccine yet. you're in luck because apparently hundreds of appointments have become available in the east bay. yeah. let's take a look. with kron four's. >> camila barco. she is live in san ramon at a clinic. good morning. darya james hundreds of people will be able to get vaccinated in contra, costa county if you look behind me, san ramon valley fire fighters have begun setting up and it's in a garage because that's where today's event is being held its. >> and 26 of 41. camino ramon and it is going on from 09:00am to 05:00pm and. you want to know a little bit about how this works out so people drivers will be coming in and exiting from the same parking garage. it's from the south driveway of the of the parking garage. it's right across from the city center in town and people you need to book an appointment to get their covid vaccine is available for anyone 18 or older living in costa, contra
8:05 am
costa county. once people head up inside the garage. garage they'll be able to go to the second floor and that's where they'll be able to get their vaccine after they get their vaccine, they'll be parked in a parking spot. and then right after the week, 15 to 30 minutes just to make sure that they are okay afterwards. you can head on out and leave. but before you do that, you will be able to get to book your second appointment to get that dose once again and it will be scheduled for may 26 or the 27 now san valley remote firefighters are the ones administering the shots and they say there are hundreds of appointments available and i've already checked the website and there are so many appointments available that people we'll have the opportunity to get a vaccine. this starts at 09:00am and it will run until 05:00pm and people do have the opportunity to get this vaccine. you can do so by going to the city's website and going under the covid-19 tap and deiah. james,

8:07 am
>> and so now that, you know, this is a great way to make your appointment or figure out where you can go and where you don't need an appointment just walk up, go to the kron 4 website and also you can download our app games. we made it really easy with the qr sure did. yeah. in fact, we'll put one up on here on the screen. this is for the kron 4 news app. >> just scan that qr code will take you right to your app store, you can download it for free. and that's your best way of getting our breaking news alerts throughout the day and then the kron on app. and here's the qr code for that. that's our 24 7 live streaming news service where we're constantly sending out broadcasts from our studio, from the newsroom. 24 7. both apps are free, download them today. 87 is the time. check this out. stanford. we have california state university system and the university of california system all requiring students if they want to come to campus for the fall. you have to be vaccinated and you have to show proof of it. that requirement could affect more than a million people. but doctors say it's necessary. we have kron four's, dan kerman with a closer look at why.

this is what a typical afternoon look like. it's stanford. pre covid-19. >> with students set to return in the fall. the university has announced stanford plans to require all undergraduate graduate and professional students coming to campus this fall to be fully vaccinated for covid-19. i think it's a good idea into win-win for everybody. >> you see berkeley infectious disease specialist doctor john swartzberg says mandatory vaccinations will benefit those on campus as well as those that live in the surrounding communities because students are a major reservoir for covid-19. they're also reza work for being a viral factory. >> and that is they'll produce a lot more viral particles and some of those particles are going to be very so if we can control the number of people producing the viral particles that is vaccinating them and students are much the biggest group we're going to able to control much better, not only the pandemic but control the
8:09 am
variance that this virus produces all stanford has and determine whether faculty and staff will also be required to be vaccinated. >> the cal state system says it intends to require vaccinations for faculty staff and students, as does the university of california, the both state university systems are still in the process of finalizing their plans. what is clear, though, is that both the cal state university system and the university of california. the requirement would go into effect once a vaccine has full approval from the u.s. food and drug administration right now the vaccines are approved for emergency use university saying they're getting the word out now. so students and parents know what's expected of them in the fall. >> as for some smaller private universities around the bay area. they're still reviewing their plans at san francisco state. dan kerman kron 4 news. >> in the bay. there's a change to the coliseum vaccination site. now it is

8:15 am
here you see that system shift to the east. it will bring some snow out to the sierra over a foot of snow in the highest elevations out there. it's also going to be windy on sunday out there as well. but monday it does dry up and then our temperatures after that will increase, i'll show you on the 7 day extended forecast later on. reyna. erica, thank you for that. so we have a hot spot down here in san jose's. tell you about. >> southbound one. oh, one at that. 8.80, northbound connector there. now they're diverting traffic from southbound 1, 1, off rent to 8.80. and again, they have all those lanes were closed. looks like they just opened up at least one lane. so we'll keep a close eye on that looking on conditions along one as you head in towards middle park. you are going to encounter just a little slow down at 33 minutes. we're checking on the bay bridge. we had another early morning hot spot here on the lower deck that's been all clear for a few hours now, 12 minutes to the fremont to exit as you're heading into the city, the san mateo bridge heading across towards the peninsula. solid under 30
8:16 am
minutes for your drive time there. the richmond sandra fell commute as you head out of richmond under 8 minutes and looking at the golden gate bridge here as you drive into the city just a little fog at 21 minutes. we'll have more on that. but daria send it over to you. >> in the buzz warriors fans get a chance tonto the chase center tonight for the first time since the pandemic shut us out more than a year ago. kron four's will tran is all dressed up with no place to go. will, you're kind of like a riddle. okay. because he asked how can a fan who has been to 200 games only ever actually have gone to 2. you. and to me that. >> that is a hard riddle. i don't know. i mean, the bottom line is i mean, the fans been here since 409 days ago well, that was it. no. the with the real assault because. >> you want all of these shots and you never get an thank you. never actually go to the game. will you have got ticket for that.
8:17 am
>> well, now because that's a different tax so that's why i haven't been to the game. but if i could go to the game might have to be fully vaccinated. or i would have to definitely be today's negative right on the game. as far as covid-19 to go inside case of a show for the eis is a different tact. >> and then so once you get in and they check for all that. they've made it different to. and i thought this is so funny. you were explaining about the food. i can't believe first of all, that you are never allowed to eat in the living room. but that's another story. you had only the kitchen if you're a worrier one of the limitations on where you can eat. well, there's certain places that you can only designated areas. they've been telling people to get an app. they want to be as touchless. >> as possible. no cash, but definitely if you're not eating put your mask on and daria, i would think your mom was a strict is my mom. my mom did not play. if you don't

of the fact that she's transgender. maybe she's a celebrity baby. you feel like, you know her so well as a dad. that's how i know her best as as a dad on the >> is it going to be fast. have. this is the first time i think in modern politics where we've had such a well known celebrity. i know president trump was, you know, considered to be a reality star when he ran. but i don't think will like that. our dash ins where cameras are literally recorded. as you said every minute decision making as a family unit light their it's really an intimate look into his life. he and then when asians to caitlin the whole time. >> she dealt with let me tell ya his kids for not. what happened in that family. and it just it was not easy. and then the whole transition and and going under, you know, the media spotlight for that. it's really going to be interesting
8:21 am
to see how these votes skull and you know, and come later this fall. we'll see how she performs against gavin newsom. i have to imagine that. >> you know, gavin newsom's people are probably saying, oh, we need to worry about this because what you're going okay. what they're and i whole celebrity status. that's why think i think what they're going have to do is really there's going to be a focus on where you stand politically because we already know where she stands. you know, socially and like in her personal life. so no be interesting facts. now you know what, i don't find fascinating usually space. i we know this. if you know me, you know, i don't give a yes. no about. but you give me a good character and i'm hooked. >> and so i fell asleep watching hilary swank. like she was going to mars on netflix, but i can't get enough of magnate. megan mcarthur, right. she's the real thing. she grew up in mount view. she's a mom and an astronaut. she just blasted off on the same capsule as her husband went up an.

8:50 am
at ashby avenue. and you can see we're seeing delays along 5, 1880, as a result of that early morning hospital on the bay bridge has been clear for several hours now heading in and out of the city. we're at the limit. the fremont street exit under 11 minutes for your drive time there as you head across towards the peninsula. you can do that under 40 minutes, not tracking any major delays along our richmond sandra fell bridge as you head out a richmond under 9 minutes for your drive time leaving you with a look at the golden gate bridge just a little fog there. 21 minutes into the city will have more on that accident down in san jose. but for now, james, back to you. >> rana, thank 50 is the time national headlines this morning. the u.s. is looking to cut emissions in half by 2030, president. biden making that announcement during a virtual summit on the climate with 40 of the world's leaders. is that goal is it achievable? that's the big question. we have our washington correspondent alexandra limon joining us live from d c with more. alex.
8:51 am
>> experts in the field agree that reaching biden's climate goals will depend a lot on what happens in the near future. for example, whether his infrastructure package which makes a shift toward clean energy is passed. >> we have to step up to achieve the ambitious school of cutting us emissions in half from 2005 levels by 2030. the country must make big changes. president biden's infrastructure proposal would leave the u.s. down that road by investing in a federal electric vehicle fleet, a network of nationwide charging stations and moving the country toward a cleaner power grid. those that do take action. >> and big bold investments in our people and clean energy future. well, when the good jobs of tomorrow and major economy is more resilient and more competitive. their plan would thrust the west coast obsession with electric vehicles. >> on to the entire nation. but republican lawmakers have their own idea of what an infrastructure package should look like that plan would cost
8:52 am
568 billion dollars instead of nearly 2 trillion and the plan would stick to more traditional infrastructure roads and bridges. public transit systems rail, which could be cargo. passenger rail. but not including green energy projects will make it quite difficult for the u.s. to reach biden's newly announced climate goals. the white house says the president is willing to look at the republican infrastructure proposal. but it remains unclear whether he would be willing to cut his green energy projects out of the package. >> in order to get a bipartisan deal done reporting in washington. alexandra limon. >> a 52 to time. we'll be right back.
