everyone. i'm frank somerville and i'm julie julie haener. that attack took place near the intersection of k a la montana and campbell into drive in morada at about 8 30 this morning. it is the latest coyote attack in that area in the past six months. ktvu is henry lee joins us now live with more on what happened, and henry, do we know how that little girl is doing? yeah julie, this girl was bitten in the upper leg, but she will recover. she is now the fourth. victim of a coyote by in that same area since july. the latest coyote attack in the lumber in the area happened at about 8 30 tuesday morning as a mother was walking with her three year old daughter without warning. a coyote had come up behind the child and bitten the child. moroccan police chief john king says the mother used the blanket to stop the attack near the corner of kabelindo drive, and kyla montagna, the mother was able to distract and yell at the coyote. get him to
5:01 pm
disengage, and ah! then she called 911 as soon as possible. the girl was bitten in the lake and was taken to a hospital for treatment that included a rabies shot. the woman was also pushing an infant in the stroller, but that child wasn't hurt. this is a picture of a coyote in the same neighborhood after the attack. there was also a coyote sighting earlier that morning, but it's not known if this was the one who bit the girl. police checked the area but couldn't find it. the attack is just blocks from capital in ojai, where a man was bitten by a coyote while stretching at the school track. back in december that same month, a man was bitten behind the apple foods in lafayette, and in july, a two year old boy was a big net. moroccan commons park dni evidence confirmed a startling connection among all three attacks. the dni profile was a match for all three of those attacks, so we think we have one animal responsible for three attacks. it's unclear the same coyote bit the girl tuesday, wildlife officials have trapped and put down at least four coyotes, but none of those animals came back as a match to the offending animal officials will likely not traps
5:02 pm
to catch the elusive coyote who may be biting humans. for one reason, for the most part, the primary motivation is probably hunger. residents are alarmed by the attacks, which are relatively rare. there's apprehension, especially for neighbors who have young children. there are a fair amount of kids who live in this neighborhood. and it appears i'm sorry that we lost henry. but, yeah, very scary, considering these air, usually rare, and that coyote seems to be biting more people. that was henry lee reporting. california is seeing a decline in the number of coronavirus cases there have been over 3.4 million cases in the state since the beginning of the pandemic. and about 5700 new cases in the past 24 hours. but compare that to the 43,000 new cases a day for weeks ago over 47,000 people, sadly have died
5:03 pm
in california that includes 64 deaths since yesterday, which is the lowest number of deaths reported for a single day this year. thousands of people in the bay area are getting their first dose of the coronavirus vaccine at the newest mass vaccination site. ktvu is tom vacar here now with look at today's first day operations and how this new site time is different from the rest. it is this is one of 100 fema centers that you would call president biden promised to erect in his 1st 100 days. with these of the start. it's part of an effort so large and so comprehensive. it is almost incomprehensible. we built a little city here is you can see there's tents. there's people there strike through lanes, the massive site a governor's office of emergency services and federal emergency management agency joined operation officially opened to california. mass vaccination sites one in
5:04 pm
oakland, though it opened a bit late. the first folks were very grateful that they could get early appointments for early vaccinations. everybody's been very polite, and so on about it being the first. then i guess they have some kinks theo workout, but worth it. yes, it is. um and i'm nervous, but i'm also very excited every day. the goals to make those 6000 daily vaccinations easier to accomplish even beyond the coliseum's fences are partners here are also bringing trucks with mobile vaccine that will be going out starting. we believe the end of this week to community based sites at the end of today, we're going to make adjustments for things that could go better go smoothly. though initially dedicated the alameda county especially its vast, underserved populations, it's possible this sites reach may be extended toe others certainly we hope to serve as many as we can. while we're here and with a real focus on this community, consider this
5:05 pm
beyond the coliseum. the pandemic has presented fema. with one of if not its biggest coordinating operations ever. it literally covers every individual in every state district territory and protectorate from puerto rico in the caribbean to guam in the western pacific 9400 miles away. we know that we've got 50 states declared under presidential disaster declarations, which is huge number one that's never happened, the amount of military personnel that we're talking about the. flying across the united states is the largest in history. when one ads in the u. s military bases and embassies overseas. it is truly a worldwide event. one final note. if you think california's tough to supply imagine alaska, alaska, the largest state in the union, this state has three quarters of the population of san francisco, scattered hither
5:06 pm
hither and yon. what a job. it really is. and time all i could think of as i was looking those pictures was the movie outbreak with dustin hoffman, where you had essentially a city completely contained because of an outbreak. there. i am wondering, i do have a question. so for people who have gotten their first shot, how long do they have to wait before they can make an appointment to get their second shot? well, it works one of two ways. generally speaking, they will be notified by the people that gave them their first shot that it's time to come in and get their second shot in effect, set up a appointment for them. if that doesn't happen, they simply go back to the process of setting up an appointment, which should be a little less busy because there'll be a lot more places. you gotta remember. we're talking about just this one place. think of all the pharmacies. they're gonna have supplied all of the health centre's the clinics and everything else. this thing is going to go away reasonably quickly. it's really frustrating right now. but a month from now, this won't be much of a deal. you're absolutely right. we're just
