chief spoke about such a heroic response from that community. live in the newsroom. amanda quintana ktvu fox two news, amanda. thank you new at noon, governor. gavin newsom is in san francisco at a covid vaccine clinic. he's urging more people to get vaccinations and booster shots. governors in the city's mission district, highlighting the availability of boosters to everyone, 18 and older, he says. it's part of the efforts to increase vaccination rates across our state, especially in the hardest hit communities. we are promoting the importance, particularly the latino community to get boosters and to get vaccinated. about 17% of all the boosters. have been administered within the latino community. that's not good enough. that's why we're here. so far over 58 million doses of the covid vaccine has been administered here in california, as well as five million covid booster shots. some people having a hard time getting boosted. ktvu greg liggins explains why, and he talked with health experts about the rush to
12:09 pm
get a booster before thanksgiving. i think people thinking ahead and say no, i'm going to be visiting family over thanksgiving. i better get my shot and what they're finding is that they can't get an appointment for two or even three weeks. that's true not only in santa cruz county but other parts of the bay area where various pharmacies are reporting long wait times. while demand has spiked, health officials say it's not a vaccine supply issue, causing delays. it's more about lack of personnel. it has really more to do with just the capacity to give the shots into the arms. even if you land an appointment before thanksgiving, the shot won't immediately give you added protection. but what is going to do for people who don't have medical conditions is temporarily increase their antibodies. which is usually in the upper respiratory track, and that will take at least a week to increase antibodies. doctor gandhi says that will provide added protection for the forthcoming holidays and a potential covid winter surge. that's one of the reasons jerry yang says he got his booster shot friday. he's working with
