cheryl hurd, today in the bay. a live look at capitol hill. that's where the january 6th committee received eye-opening revolutions from the former white house aide. this came from an eight to trumps cheap at staff, mark meadows. cassidy hutchinson took the stand yesterday and talked about a rally that took place before the capital siege. she said then-president trump asked for the screening machines to be removed so crowd members caring weapons could mean admitted and then after giving his speech she said trump raged at his secret service driver bobby engel and his own aid coming tony arenado. that's because he wanted to head to the capitol. >> to which bobby responded, sir, we have to go back to the west wing. the president reached up toward the front of the vehicle to grab at the steering wheel. mr. engel grabbed his arm and said,
sir, you need take take your hand off the steering wheel. we are going back to the west wing. we are not going to the capitol. mr. trump then used his free hand to lunge toward bobby engel and went mr. arenado recounted his story to me he motioned toward his chemicals. >> the former president has since responded to the testimony and calls her a , quote, total phony and weaker. a six week delay for scott peterson in his bid for pretrial. attorneys on both sides were supposed to be back in the courtroom yesterday but one of peterson's attorneys has since tested positive for covid. peterson is in a modified quarantine after being exposed at san quentin and is seeking a new trial based on questions surrounding one of the jurors in his original trial nearly 20 years ago. last year the california supreme court just overturned his death sentence for killing his wife and unborn son. another hearing will take place august 11th. moving you forward.
2.5 years into the pandemic and vaccines for children as young as six months old are now available but there is hesitancy among parents as they ponder the decision to take the step with the family. i spoke with a doctor about key benefits for kids. >> i tell them first of all the vaccines are safe and effective in the best way to protect their children from severe disease and hospitalization. i also directed them to reliable outlets for information and there are variety. healthy children.org at the american academy of pediatrics. get vaccine answers.org. and i direct the parents of younger children to sesame street youtube. there's a wonderful video about elmo and his dad because all parents have questions. they have concerns. they want to make the best choices for their children but
they need accurate information to do that. >> and gives you an advantage or an opportunity to introduce what's going to happen to the kids as well. so, for adults that did receive the vaccine. some of us had some side effects that went along with it. are ere any differences in some of these side effects that they may see and younger children? >> ey are really very similar and i think parents are used to their children may be having some minor side effectsafter their routine childhood immunizations so that's to be expected and the side effects are really the same after the coronavirus vaccine. a child may have no symptoms at all or may have a little bit of irritability or fussiness. redness and swelling at the injection site or even a low grade fever for a day or two and some children may even have a high fever for a day or two but those symptoms are self- limited and expected and are
not atypical of what we expect from any immunization. >> is it safe for kids to get their covid vaccine at the same time as other vaccines or even a flu shot? >> yes. and children had come older children, have been receiving vaccines along with their covid vaccine, or at least some of the time. they come of course, don't get as many vaccines as the younger children do. but. yes. they have been given that way and they are safe. >> you can find more information about covid-19 vaccines for kids on our website. we have a link with more on how you can book an appointment for your child all at nbcbayarea.com. 4:39. expanding the plant-based menu. coming up, beyond your standard burger come the new option that may have you reaching for a fork and knife. get ready for a busy holiday weekend.
