“Even though we still have this incredibly important of needing to reach people who so far don’t want to get vaccinated-life is going to return to normal. People who are vaccinated are going to feel the sense of freedom to partake in all sorts of activities much more safely,” says Dr. Jennifer Nuzzo.

  • Herd immunity, will not work without the vaccines. just letting everyone get Covid, still leaves people open to a second infection. Even with vaccines, a second infection is possible, BUT the vaccine has proved to be very effective of lowering the chance of being hospitalised, or die. The problem comes, when a proportion of the population, refused to be vaccinated, and the virus mutates, into a strain, that the current vaccines cannot protect against, then we start all over again

  • What they're really saying is that they trust the virus. They trust it won't infect them and replicate within their bodies to the point where their own immune system can't cope, or they are the means by which it reaches, and harms, other people around them. Why would you trust a virus which has already killed half a million Americans? Covid-19 a national, as well as a world-wide danger. Siding with the virus is aiding that public enemy, and doing so regardless of the clear fact that it will do as much harm to fellow Americans (and fellow human beings) as it possibly can.

    Diane O'DonovanDiane O'Donovan12 dager siden
  • With this virus, people should herd immunity only when virtually the entire population has been vaccinated. The problem are the uneducated masses who don't believe in getting vaccinated will help them. The graveyards are full of Americans, who thought COVID could not hurt them. America should make it very simple. If you refuse getting vaccinated, you will get no priority if getting infected with COVID. Within 1 year from now, any kind of travel by airplane and cruise ship etc. may not even be possible unless you can prove you are fully vaccinated. Especially airlines will most likely consider making vaccination a mandatory requirement to even board an airplane. Travelling by airplane or cruise ships are not methods of travel covered by personal freedom. These modes of travel are governed by rules set out by private companies.

  • I was diagnosed with PTSD and have a drug sensitivity so I haven't gotten the vaccine and have no plan to. But I wear a mask in public, wash my hands when I get home. Even went as far as putting real copper foil on door knobs to help reduce chances. So I am doing my part under my circumstances. BUT I have a question. What are the long term effects of these shots??? You have no clue. I am not an anti-vaxxer. But what are the long term effects??? Trump is old and fat with legal issues out the butt. Long term effects are the easy way out. Biden is 3 days older than Jesus so long term isn't a problem.

    • Good idea, however those with medical issues may not be able to, eg autoimmune, chemo treatment.

Our job is to safe guard the vulnerable.

  • 1:34 well there's also just an availability problem, that I knew we were going to run into, just not this soon. to say it in the simplest terms there's going to be a slow down just because the people who had no hurdles to getting the vaccine, have already gotten it. People who, for example, don't have transportation issues, aren't scared of the doctor in general, live near a place where they can get the vaccine, and have time to go get said vaccine. The question is how many of the people left fall into the "legitimate problem category and how many fall into the "I just don't want to" category.

Im both surprised and concerned at the number of people who I judged reasonably responsible and intellegent opting out of vaccination. Here in Brisbane City in the state of Queensland weve been incredibly fortunate in avoiding repeated or sustained lock downs..its like covid never happened. Its like theyre thinking let all the suckers risk the vaccine till Im safe in the herd. Chile is a warning not to be complacent...highest vax rates but now a killer wave of 5 different covid varients ..they went with sino vax and now think it dosent work..but they lifted restrictions too soon.

      DahnDahn12 dager siden
    • Get your facts right, the reference now for herd immunity is relating to those who receive the vaccine, trump's claim was let everyone catch Covid and allow their own immune system to fight it - trouble is the body can't in far too many cases, particularly the elderly. The new strains developing etc. Covid in fact is another virus - measles, mumps, rubella, diphtheria, TB, Polio are all vaccinated against. Covid is another deadly virus we can add to the list which is extremely harmful to humans.

Reason being is that those who ARE Vaccinated are safe regardless. For a Vaccinated person to worry about who is NOT Vaccinated is the height of stupidity. Obviously if you are Vaccinated you are safe. You are not at risk when you go out among unvaccinated people. The vaccine is protecting you. It's so insane that some are telling others what to do. Just get the vaccine if you fear Covid and you don't have to worry about others.

    • @Thyalwaysseek Nope, I did not say that. I deconstructed your analogy to show how it did not make the point you were trying to make and that comparing it to Nazis inappropriately dialed its inflammatory intent up to 11. Stop arguing by analogy and just say what you mean. And stop reading into what other people say that which is not there. I have a feeling that if the time comes for you to be ostracized for something, it will because of your overreacting and inability to articulate your thoughts. During the polio epidemic, the messaging for the country was, "We're all in this together." The motto for many who are anti-COVID vaccine (not necessarily you; see J. Rogan's rationale) is, "We're all in this for ourselves."

  • "I trust my own cells more than i trust pharmaceutical goop" Ok but id like this explained. The odds of the vaccine having any serious or permanent side effects in the long term are pretty much zero. Not impossible but jsut not likely. Covid has been shown to linger in people and caused serious long term damage even in people with mild cases not feeling well for months after with so called "long covid". We also have no idea what the long term effects of this virus could be. Its not out of the realm of possibility that we see millions of people with health issues developing in the coming years that turn out to be covid related. So this excuse for not getting the vaccine makes zero sense. "I trust my own mind more than i trust liberal elites" This is just plain ignorance. This pandemic has nothing to do with politics and its the health experts whom you should listen to not the libs or the loonies on the right.

This has eroded many amaricans trust in the motives of said company's. It does not help when company's charge us 10 times more than what they charge other country's to be healthy just because they can, or leaked sales calls of execs chomping at the bit to give out covid boosters because they will get to raise the price.

Thus, we're hoping for the best while preparing for the worse-case scenario of the "UK variant" strain(s) mutations and others like the South African, Brazilian, Californian, Texan (BV-1) & "Cluster 5 Mink" mutations rendering current vaccines no longer effective.

  • Herd immunity is very difficult to achieve when you are talking about a very large population that interacts closely and travels long distance especially if you do not act on it right away, it's one thing when you're talking about several hundred thousand or even several million, but when you're talking about hundreds of millions and half have a laxidazical attitude you can kiss herd immunity goodbye, everyone has to take it seriously just like a Democracy requires everyone's participation to function correctly. You have to see it through to completion, you can't give up or become complacent or throw caution to the wind 3/4 of the way through. We are making good progress so let's stay focused on all the things that have gotten us this far and not worry about herd immunity itself, it is a byproduct of doing everything right.

  • The Biden administration really needed to come up with a contingency plan for not enough people being willing to get vaccinated. They need to do this immediately. They knew this would be a problem. I'm vaxxed. There will be no further justification for me to wear a mask after June when everyone in the country has had vaccine access so the mandates must end nationwide. It's no longer my concern to protect others who freely choose not to vaccinate after June.

  • I find it very ironic that herd immunity was the only plan that fat donnie talked about in the early going. He didn't like masks, he didn't care about social distancing, and he absolutely did not want to shut down the economy, but he preached that everything would be fine when we got to herd immunity. Now, we are having trouble reaching that point, because millions of people refuse the vaccine, and they are by a huge margin, TRUMP SUPPORTERS!!

  • I am no expert but I am in the field. My understanding of herd immunity is the point when there is no large scale community outbreak even though there could still be SPORADIC cases (the end game is not eradication of the COVID-19). So herd immunity determined by a complex medical, viral, social, environmental factors not easily summarized as a fix point like "when 75.62% of the population is immunized". On the issue of the anti-vaccine people, regardless of their motivation, I would just say: open up the economy once every one who wants the vaccine has the FREE vaccine. After that, those who get infected (mostly the anti-vaccine people), they are on their own. (Vaccine failure cases should be exempted.) They may or may not have paid medical leave or medical coverage, subjected to their individual negotiation between them and their employers.

    Timothy HawkinsTimothy Hawkins13 dager siden
    • Most of the main vaccines ARE effective against the new strains, just not to the same 90%ish levels. That's because of how the vaccines work, shutting down the methods of covid to attach to cells. It's a new method that has been extraordinarily effective, and doesn't just rely on the older styles of vaccination where the body is just shown the dead contagion so it is ready if infected. (VERY basic overview, details are interesting and freely available online if one is interested)

  • The holdouts want to do herd immunity, fine I will shed 0 tears when people are dying at the end of summer. Anyone who want to do herd immunity they will get their wish at some point and get some version of this virus because it will be around for quite a while. Some 60 year old may skate by a year or 2 but will eventually get sick and some will be dying 2 or 3 years from now. You never will wipe it out but you will have familiarity to it and chances are you won't die or even end up in the hospital the next time you get it.

    • @Common Sense You need to read some studies. Seriously. Your numbers are way off. The great majority (80%) of people who get COVID are asymptomatic, with absolutely ZERO long-term effects. But, of course, that percent may be way off, too, because the stupid PCR tests gave a bunch of false positives, so these "cases" weren't really infections to begin with. If you find out that 95% of the "COVID deaths" occur to people over the age 75, and most of them were already well on their way to death, anyway, you'll think twice about the virulence of this virus.

  • The anti-vaxxers will never admit that those of us who dutifully and rapidly got vaccinated helped end the pandemic while they did nothing to assist. All they did was whine and pretend to have a superior immune system. They never wonder how they acquired a superior immune system. It does not happen by accident. These are the people who need to be Darwin'd out of the gene pool.

  • The most dangerous pandemic in the US is wanton stupidity. The people who are rejecting the vaccine are doing it mostly out of their own ignorance and arrogance. This situation belongs in Tom Nichols' book "The of Expertise ". Maybe this is how evolution works in a modern society. Maybe these antivaxers will simply take themselves out of the gene pool because they are too stupid to survive.

  • There's also the religious nuts who are convinced that the vaccine is the mark of the beast, due to a publication number. But this publication number is 060606, which means 60606. I'll continue to say this: The mark of the beast is not sixty thousand six hundred and six. If you can't even get your numbers right, then you're making it worse.
