if you can believe it, it is march again, marking nearly a year since most schools went to full distance, learning this much anticipated plan encourages districts to go back to in person instruction in return for state money. we want schools to safely reopened, period full stop governor newsome and state legislative leaders struck a deal to you sue billion dollars to push schools to get some students physically back in the classroom. by the end of the month. those air grants you could provide more ppe, though we have set aside three months of free ppe for ventilation for spacing for issues related to health and safety for counties in the purple tear. the plan provides grant funding to district that offer in person instruction for students in transitional kindergarten through second. grade by march 31st, regardless of tear classrooms was also be open to at risk and high need students of all ages. it is more than
5:01 pm
just to return to schools that are safe. our plan is also geared toward providing schools, the resource is and the incentives that they need. if a county is in the red tear, which much of the bay area is poised to be eligible schools must open to t k through six and one grade in middle or high school, a district's grant will drop by 1. and for each day in person instruction is not offered after april 1st on additional $4.6 billion would go towards all schools to mitigate learning loss reimagining the school year. giving district's flexibility. looking at school days looking at intervention, deeper intervention to address kids wellness, newsome suggested potentially extending the school year into the summer. now this deal doesn't mandate schools physically reopened, and it doesn't require all teachers be vaccinated, something unions pushed for the state did begin setting aside 10% of its weekly doses for teachers in school staff, the
5:02 pm
california teachers association released this statement. today's proposed agreement includes the multi tiered safety measures, educators have been calling for. it recognizes community transmission rates and the importance of prioritizing educators for the covid-19 vaccine before reopening for in person instruction. sita also said it would like to see testing requirements for all schools, regardless of tear assignment. the state legislature is set to vote on this bill on thursday. reporting live gregory ktvu, fox two news, julie. greg. thanks for tonight's update, shipping began today for johnson and johnson's new coronavirus vaccine. it's the third shot approved by the fda for emergency use. it's expected to reach more places because the vaccine can be stored in refrigerators, not sub freezing temperatures. it's also just a single dose, but some are worried about how effective it will be.
5:03 pm
interviews tom vacar here now with why it's important time to dismiss the myth. that one vaccine is better than the other. well, let's break it down this way. assume you're on a sinking boat and somebody threw you a lifesaver. now would you be picky if they tossed you a solid styrofoam life ring or a robert one that was inflated with their. or a life vest? well, that's basically your choices in vaccines now. four million doses of johnson and johnson's covid vaccines will start going into people's arms across the nation on tuesday, since the johnson and johnson vaccine is a one injection on lee vaccine, the pharmaceutical giant is ramping up production as never before, with a whole lot more coming. i really can't think of another time in our history where we've been able to ramp up with this kind of pace, and we say 100 million doses by june, that means 100 million vaccinations patients that will have been treated. we asked some folks in this alpay was overall supplies, the vaccine's
5:04 pm
still not readily available. would they accept the only slightly less effective j and j vaccine or hold out for the slightly more effective? fizer and moderna ones right now? i'd say i'm in favor of the moderna vaccine just because i don't want anybody my family to get it. my mom has pre existing health conditions and arpad is configured to make it so that she never gets sick vaccines also slow the rate of contagion of benefit. for the entire community. but as we learned vaccine daughters will make that weight shorter for folks who will take any vaccine available. i don't think it's necessary for me for flu. that's what like 99% survival rate. i still don't really know anybody who's had it but where it really counts in fighting serious illness, hospitalization. or death. all the vaccines are tied. this has been proven to be very safe and it decreases hospitalization
5:05 pm
and death by 100% 100% effectiveness against hospitalization and death, and that's the thing that we're trying to prevent the most is keeping our hospital's clear and making sure that people don't die. now some more good news, the astrazeneca vaccine should finish its us approval trials within the next few weeks, and then we'll be up to vaccine number four with plenty more to come. tom vacar ktvu fox two news, tom. thank you today. california's vaccine distribution system starts moving to a single system. until now, nearly every county had its own vaccine eligibility requirements that many times were different from the states. guidelines now blue shield of california has been hired by the state to create one streamline system to determine the best way to distribute vaccines to each county. also starting today, two counties in southern california and eight counties in the central valley, including san joaquin and stanislaw will be covered. the

second phase involves counties with the largest populations as well. a solano in sonoma counties and the other bay area counties are included in the final phase. by the end of this month, the entire project. is expected to be in place by the administration says that families that were separated at the border under the trump administration could be allowed to live in the united states after they're reunited the department of homeland security secretary alejandro mayorkas said that the administration will quote explore lawful pathways for them to remain. the announcement came before a virtual meeting between president biden and the president of mexico this afternoon. united states and mexico are stronger. when we stand together, we have seen over and over again. the power and the purpose when we cooperate. president obrador is interested in a program to allow 600 to 800,000, mexicans and central americans to work
5:07 pm
in the u. s legally each year. the white house has not said whether they're on board with the plan, while so many americans are out of work. joining us now to talk more about this is bill hang, the director of the immigration and deportation defense clinic at a professor of law at ucsf. thank you so much doctor for joining us. what is the key in your opinion to these talks? well, first of all that, the talking on us civil level and they're talking about human rights. it's quite interesting that the big talk that came out today. from my perspective was the fact that. we're open. the u. s is open to allowing reunified family members to live in the united states lawfully, if possible, and that's big news because, as we know under the trump administration, several 1000 children were separated. of their parents and to recognize that we all a
5:08 pm
humanitarian effort to bring these folks back together and to extend another hand and allowing them to perhaps resettle here. peacefully would be a big big step. the president said that the united states and mexico are stronger when they work together. i would assume you would agree. definitely agree. what happened during the trump administration is that there was a lot of pressure placed on mexico to do its dirty work. if you will we gave a lot of money to mexico to enforce its southern border. we didn't want folks traveling through mexico. to get here even though they were fleeing violence, and that mexico i'll be honest with you folded under pressure, and they participated and much of the damage that happened along the border, the former head of homeland security said today. hey was the former head of homeland security during the trump administration. he said that president biden needs to take a
5:09 pm
stronger stance. what would your thoughts on that beer? well, i think that president biden is taking a fair and humanitarian stance. the stance that the trump administration took. ended up in this mess. we're even today, more than 600 parents had not been found who were separated from their children. can you imagine? it's been almost 2.5 years that those children have been separated from their parents. that's not the staff that we need illegal immigration is such a huge issue in this country. what are your thoughts about what we should do at the border and people who are trying to come here illegally? what would be fair in your opinion? well, first of all the numbers from mexico itself are at an all town all time low. the number of undocumented immigrants from mexico has been on a steady decline for many, many years. that then serves
5:10 pm
that we've all read about in the last few years is largely from central america. and those folks are fleeing violence, cartel gang and domestic violence. in my view, we've gotta process those folks. lawfully and fairly and determine if they have valid asylum applications and we can do this. we can do this calmly and fairly. we don't have to panic. we don't need to put people in detention. we can process them. they're not going to be running away before the trump administration there was a 90% appearance rate. at deportation hearings when people were allowed to leave, and so that's the way i would handle this, professor. hang we appreciate you taking the time to talk with us tonight. thank you so much. thank you. on under the biden administration. immigration reform means dreamers across the country are in the process of applying for protected status under the daca
