Thanks a lot, JG...
« on: April 23, 2021, 06:48:24 PM »
The rate of vaccinations in the U.S. is slowing down despite only 27 percent of the country being fully inoculated against COVID-19. With “hesitant” or outright unwilling adults still making up a substantial portion of the population, the road to “herd immunity” looks like a long one. This won’t just be a problem for people who choose not to get vaccinated: The vaccines are very effective, but not perfectly effective; the longer the virus remains in circulation, the more likely vaccine-resistant mutations become; since kids can’t yet get vaccinated, they’re vulnerable to adults who are refusing to do so; and it would be nice to go to the movies someday without worrying about violating the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s rules for social distancing.

by your reckoning (and whomever you lifted that from) is herd immunity dependent on vaccines?

Yes.
So without 90+% of people vaccinated herd immunity won't happen?

"Entire population" cannot happen if for no reason other than those under age 16 are not allowed to receive a vaccination.

52.6% of all adults have had at least one shot so far.  81% of the most vulnerable (elderly) have received at least one dose and 2/3rds of all senior citizens are now fully vaccinated.

There does seem to be a correlation in take up rates relative to trust in big Government.  That is, the Northeast has the highest vaccination rates.

https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations

Cases in the US are down by -75% since the peak on January 11.
Cases are down by -90% in the 10 states that have had the highest infection rate.

If “the rate of vaccinations is slowing down”, it’s because the complacent, compliant, conformist sheeple have all dutifully marched off to get their shot.

Leaving those who don’t trust a Godless lying gov’t, and Godless lying media.  Don’t trust, and don’t believe a word they say.  Because ALL either do is lie.  They speak no other language.  And are devoid of truth.

Don’t wear a mask.

Wear a mask.

15 days to slow the spread.  Maybe return to normal by summer (’20).  Maybe by memorial Day.  Maybe by Thanksgiving.  Forget Christmas.  Maybe mid-’21.  Maybe in a few years.  Maybe never.

The science says this.  The science says that.  The science changes its mind, depending on whether the gathering is a church or a BLM protest.  Standing in line to vote, or burning down liquor stores and Auto Zones.

5 years to a vaccine.  We can’t return to normal until there’s a vaccine.  We have a vaccine — thanks to Biden and the Dims.

Get vaccinated.  But if you’re vaccinated, you still have to wear a mask and distance.  Until… Whenever.  Forever.  Shut up and do as you’re told.

FWIW, I’ve taken the vaccine.

But not because the gubmit said so.

Because my wife did.

Once you get over 50% vaccination rates, the rate of vaccination take up has to slow.  No?
Basic math?
Since 2/3rds of all elderly are already fully vaccinated, the numbers are bound to drop....and dramatically.....

I don't know the specific percentage, and doubt it's knowable (depends on which people get it - rural vs. urban, etc.).  Needless to say, the more vaccinated, the greater the likelihood of herd immunity.
