5:03 pm
for us. you know people here, you know, it's a way out friday morning, governor gavin newsom gave the go ahead for outdoor high contact sports to begin. we are now confident with new guidelines that we're publishing today. that we could get you sports moving again in the state of california get competition moving again. under those guidelines, counties must have a per capita covid case rate of fewer than 14 per 100,000 residents. all bay area counties currently are under that threshold, except contra costa and solano counties. but those counties air close to that barrier in case rates are trending downward. richmond high school's football coaches, hoping the case rates will fall under 14 by next week, allowing his practices to start and eventually name's always everyone continue to wear the mask. they say if i think we'll be perfectly fine, we are ecstatic about the this massive first step. patrick washes head football coach at sarah high school in san matteo. we can literally feel the souls of millions of kids lifted today.

5:05 pm
updates about covid vaccines this week will turn now to dr peter chan hyung, an infectious disease doctor from ucsf doctor. thank you so much for joining us yet again. we want to start with this. yesterday the mayo clinic published a study that found both the madonna and visor vaccines, almost 89% effective in the real world compared to 95% of the studies. why are the real world observations like this so important? so for me, actually, this was really amazing because people always say, well, these people in the trials that cherry picked they're like the best people who can like go to appointments. get the nose swabs all the time. show up on time. if you bring it on real world, it's not that easy on so. between 92 95% i'll definitely accept that on issues that these vaccines book in real life situations with people with schedules on who may not fit in exactly into trial. protocol may also help people who have been hesitant to take
5:06 pm
the vaccine this far now fizer now says it's vaccine could be kept in standard pharmaceutical freezers and refrigerators a big change because it was supposed to be kept really, really cold in these really cold freezers. does this mean the company can make and ship out more? these vaccines? now? how does this change things? so it doesn't it's not probably going to change supply issues because we're still the we just wanted to make more. it didn't matter if we could have kept you know we had that freezer capacity, basically for the. old way we thought about the temperature requirements. i think the way will impact practically is really the reach to rural communities where they don't have that much proximity toe. these ultra cool temperatures, so i think. most of the state wasn't really it's you have reserved spaces, just issue of just having enough. let's get to this now. since the vaccine, you know more more people are getting it now, but
5:07 pm
there's really no messaging that once people get fully vaccinated that they could meet with others, um, usually the messaging is still you know, cover up. stay away. what really is the messaging for people that do get both their shots of the vaccine? so i agree with you, andre. i mean, i think that you know, in my opinion and the opinion of several people, you know, there is an immunity bubble, so you basically get together with a small group of people if everyone's unvaccinated, it's fine. you can like. want to retreat being somebody's home. pretend like it's 1999, you know, put on some prince or something. it z going to be like the old days, but when you go out into society, you're going to be wearing a mask because not everyone's going to be vaccinated. the more people you, including that intimate setting who are vaccinated the higher chance of two people who are have not responded, getting into contact each other. that's why that. immunity bubble is going to be small, but yes, you
5:08 pm
can hug each other. we don't have to wear masks forever. and what about grandparents who want to have their 345 year old grandkids? can they if they have been vaccinated, do that with their children, even if they're not vaccinate, obviously, because they can't be. yes. in my opinion, yes. for many reasons, the. particularly for kids under 12. they're less less likely to both get covid and transmit covid. so again vaccinated older adult. with ah grand kid should be fine. and in fact, it probably be beneficial health wise and i do wonder. does that contribute to herd immunity that we've heard so much about that we might get by this summer when you know grand parents who have the vaccine were hugging their kids. how does that hurt immunity part working this. i think the herd immunity probably won't be from this kind of transmission. it's more like the most reliable hood immunity is going to be
5:09 pm
from vaccinations because it's very different from other kinds of infection, so i would probably only rely on the fact that if you got vaccinated. you're going to have that durable herd immunity because even from natural infection, that immunity may win, five will win faster, natural than vaccine and used her to meaning less people for the for the coronavirus to get in and people if you're vaccinated to it, and at least 30 meeting all right. dr peterson hung, infectious disease expert at ucsf. thank you so much for your insight again today. appreciate it. thanks, andre. well despite vaccine shortages that california has said a single day record for the number of vaccines given, gavin newsom, says 264th vaccines were administered yesterday, nearly seven million doses have now been given out here in our state. that's about 17% of california's population of 40 million people. a 0.8 million doses have been delivered two counties statewide, the winter storms
