[WHITE TEXT: Vaccine Distribution, Vaccine  Equity, COVID-19 Update]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Today, April 1, I discussed three topics: vaccine distribution, equity, and an update on COVID-19.

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Guess what? Today I got my vaccine! Which vaccine did I get? Johnson & Johnson.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER –

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Finally!  Want to see my picture? Here it is.

[FULL SCREEN IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Governor Newsom with a dark blue tshirt and green mask with California logo of Bear and stars on it. His sleeve is pushed up to his shoulder and Dr. Mark Ghaly in a dark maroon sweater is bending over to give Governor Newsom a vaccine in his upper arm. In the background is a large sign with the Vaccinate all 58 logo on it]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: My wife has to wait until her age comes up in the groups of people who can get their vaccine.  She has to wait just like many of you do until it is her turn.  Just because she is my wife, she does not get to jump ahead and get her vaccine. She has to wait just like all of you.  My wife has to wait until her age group is up for a vaccine. Until then she has to wait.  Same as all of you. You need to wait until it is your turn then you can go and get your vaccine, just like my wife. Even my wife has to wait. Just because I am the governor and I love my wife dearly that does not mean that she can jump ahead and get the vaccine before all of you. She has to follow the rules just like you do. No, she has to wait and so do you.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Johnson & Johnson Logo with red circle]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: I got my vaccine, which one did I get? The Johnson & Johnson (Sign: JJ in neutral space). But we have a very limited supply. Once we are out, that is it we are out. Will not get more.  JJ out, mean that’s all gone.  Keep that in mind.

[FULL IMAGE TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Pfizer logo is a blue oval with the word “Pfizer” in white. The “f” in Pfizer is tall and long.]

[FULL IMAGE TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Moderna’s logo is the word “moderna” in red and lowercase. A broken blue line underlines the word.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: Supply is up for Pfizer (Sign: PF in neutral space) and Moderna (Sign: M in a small circle in neutral space) Moderna.  We have lots and lots and lots. We have plenty to give to the lines and lines of people who are going to get their vaccines.  We will not run out as they are being made to give us more and more. Different than JJ where we don’t have that much and will run out soon. Some of you are frustrated while looking online trying to find a place to go and get your vaccine.  You are looking and trying again and again to find a place to get a vaccine and all appointment times are taken/full.  The appointments are based on available supply of vaccines.  If full, then that means vaccines are out. Keep trying.  Available time, means available vaccines. When you see a time that is open, grab it!  If you don’t, keep trying.  Don’t give up. Please be patient as we get vaccines and run out then we get some more and run out and get more.

[WHITE TEXT: Vaccine Distribution]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: In the next 6 to 8 weeks, one to two months, we will see a large number of people vaccinated which is good. Thirty percent of California has gotten at least one dose, maynot not both, but at least one! That is great! Please, go get your vaccine then sit for 15 minutes then go home if you feel well. If you don’t feel well, doctors and nurses are ready to make sure you are well taken care of before you go home.  When you are done with your vaccine, go and tell your friends and family that you got the vaccine too, like me. The vaccine is so important!

[FULL SCREEN WHITE TEXT: Vaccine Equity]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM:  I am in East LA where we are working hard to make sure that vaccines are getting to various parts of our communities including:

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: Four BIPOC persons are standing facing the viewer, smiling and they appear to be female, male, female, and male.  Behind each person is a vertical striped background of a color – in the order from left to right, forest green, dull yellow, burnt orange, and olive green.]

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: A group of senior citizens posing for the camera.  They are diverse with different skin color, some with headwraps, some with glasses, all with smiles]

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: family of four with smiles posing with big smiles looking at the camera standing on the shore of a beach]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: We want to reach out to people who are Black, Indigenous, Latinx, Asian, and more want to get vaccinated. Also to Multi-generational families – grandparents, parents, older children in the same house, want to all get vaccinated. We are also focused on Senior citizens – people over 65 want to get vaccinated.  We have vaccines for everyone.  On April 12, CA will keep working with  Cal State Los Angeles and mobile sites to get into the city of LA to get vaccines to as many people as possible. We need more of these mobile devices to get out in LA which is huge and has so many people living there. We see that a large number of BIPOC are going to these mobiles to get their vaccine.  In Oakland in Northern California will be changing sites as the baseball season will open soon so they need to find a new site. More on that soon.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: The Coronavirus cell is a gray sphere with red-orange dots and red stems protruding all around it.]

[WHITE TEXT: COVID-19 update]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: The number of people who have COVID-19 right now is very low, very small number of people have the virus in California. How? From vaccines.  This is great news! At the same time if numbers go up because of spring break then we will adjust our plans to address COVID positive rates while still giving out vaccines. Hospitals, doctors and nurses are ready for both.  We are ready to do both at the same time: take care of COVID-19 patients AND give out vaccines.This is wonderful because it means we are not stressed and not overwhelmed, we are ready for you if you are sick or if you need a vaccine.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: clip art of solid green color COVID cell with green text below Covid-19 with a green fades to red arrow to a new solid red color COVID cell with red text below L452R]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: This does not mean we can take off our masks.  Why? We now have 7 variants of COVID in CA.  So please be careful. Keep your masks on, cover your nose and mouth.

[FULL SCREEN TO TOP LEFT CORNER IMAGE DESCRIPTION: This image has four sections. The top section shows soapy hands with the word “Wash” in orange. Under that, a brown haired person wearing a blue mask with the word “Cover” in blue. Under that, an unlabeled blue spray bottle with the word “Clean” in orange. At the bottom, a woman standing with an arrow next to the words “6 Feet” in blue.]

GOVERNOR NEWSOM: This means the virus is still here and we can’t take off our masks yet – keep them on. Stay 6 feet apart. Wash your hands. GO Get your vaccine! Thank you!
