4:14 pm
get a shot, and you can qualify for four years of free tuition at san francisco state. only san francisco residents qualify for this. dan: vaccine team and spoke with several experts who believe some people could benefit from multiple booster shots. she is in the newsroom for us with that story. >>'s case dependent, not everyone builds up the same level of immunity in younger people are known to produce a stronger response to the immune vaccine. the vast majority are those 65 and older. former secretary of state colin powell was 84 years old, had cancer, and was fully vaccinated. yet he died from covid-19 complications. what happened? >> when you're treating a person with an underlying condition like cancer or some autoimmune
4:15 pm
diseases, you have a weaker immune system. it may make your immune response is not as good as a healthy individual. luz: the professor believes owls case is a prime example that even when vaccinated, there is always a risk of infection, but especially if you are older than 65 years old or have underlying health conditions. >> we also know that after 4-6 months there is evidence that the immunity overall drops off. luz: this doctor has been leading a study of breakthrough case is to understand what has been causing severe disease. he believes immunocompromised patients could benefit from multiple booster shots. >> sometimes a third or even
4:16 pm
fourth dose is needed to develop the same immune response that those without immunocompromised conditions achieve. luz: the latest data shows breakthrough cases that have resulted in death. of those breakthrough cases, 85% were among people 65 and older, and 57% were among men. >> we know there may be biological differences between males and females that prevent males from fighting that initial infection during the first day to a week or so. luz: one of his spokespeople confirmed powell was scheduled to receive a booster shot. they highlight the importance of getting a booster shot if you are older than 64 years old or if you have an underlying health condition. dan: the doctor joins us now.
4:17 pm
how important is getting a covid booster shot? say you've already had two doses, or one of johnson & johnson, how important is the booster? >> you have to stratify it to the individual. i think it is very important for anyone who might be immuno compromised, older or in a high risk situation. we seen the situation play out before, for the general public it's important you remember that the vaccine is still very effective in preventing severe hospitalizations or death. go out and get out and get out t meet the criteria. dan: should people outside the high risk groups be trying to get a booster at this moment? >> i don't think it is
4:18 pm
necessary, if you are outside the high risk groups. i don't think there is a sense of urgency. but a lot of people are asking this question, saying i work in a nursing facility or school. that might qualify as a high exposure area. get your own situation and look at what transmission is like. that has been approved for both pfizer and moderna. if you got johnson & johnson six months ago, you should go out and get another shot now. dan: it's my understanding there is no shortage now, there are plenty to go around, it seems. >> there are. i say this with trepidation because it feels weird when i say you can go out right now,, that you can go out and get a shot. it is important that people are realistic and understand that the vaccines are still working. we don't want to send out the
4:19 pm
narrative that the first round of vaccines is not effective so you must go get a boost -- a booster to make a difference. it's a preemptive strategy to make sure we don't run into trouble later this year or early next year. dan: good proof that there's no reason to panic if you've just had your first couple of doses of johnson & johnson. let's say you go out and get your booster shot, this is not going to be our last booster, probably. or going to be in a pattern like a flu shot, the thinking that we need to get new shots every year or so? >> it's a great debate out there right now. there is less of a thought that this will be a yearly vaccine, now that boosters are in the equation. hope is that the booster will boost our immunity long enough that this might be it. but again, no one really knows. there are two arms to the immune system, one is the anybody levels that are commonly described and mentioned in news
4:20 pm
headlines. but another part of the immune system is the memory t cells. that might be long-lasting, for years even. so it's tough to say, but i'm hopeful that this is going to be it. dan: dr. patel, thanks so much. kristen: now to some developing news from the san jose sharks. forward evander kane has been suspended for 21 games for submitting the fate covid-19 vaccination card. he apologized to his teammates and sharks fans. sharks issued a statement saying in part, they are extremely disappointed by his disregard for the health and safety protocols put in place on the nhl. across the state, some parents kept her kids out of school today to protest the governors covid vaccine mandate for schoolchildren. the mandate would require students who attend school in person to get the vaccine once the fda fully approves it, and
