Patteeu Memorial Political Forum>Reaching ‘Herd Immunity’ Is Unlikely in the U.S., Experts Now Believe

Early in the pandemic, when vaccines for the coronavirus were still just a glimmer on the horizon, the term “herd immunity” came to signify the endgame: the point when enough Americans would be protected from the virus so we could be rid of the pathogen and reclaim our lives.

Now, more than half of adults in the United States have been inoculated with at least one dose of a vaccine. But daily vaccination rates are slipping, and there is widespread consensus among scientists and public health experts that the herd immunity threshold is not attainable — at least not in the foreseeable future, and perhaps not ever.

How much smaller is uncertain and depends in part on how much of the nation, and the world, becomes vaccinated and how the coronavirus evolves. It is already clear, however, that the virus is changing too quickly, new variants are spreading too easily and vaccination is proceeding too slowly for herd immunity to be within reach anytime soon.

Thanks facebook and the anti vax trash of America.

Or maybe tell people that have been vaccinated that they no longer sit in a shell under the sea until it all goes away. There is an idea.

Reset Propaganda.

SD peaked last Nov and reached herd immunity by January without vaccines. It does happen.

Thousands of unfilled vaccine slots has shocked medical professionals.
22% of adults say they won't get the vaccine.
Vaccine hesitancy is serious - interviewed someone - whose mom was on a ventilator from Covid - who wasn't sure if he should get the vaccine.
Different groups have vastly different levels of hesitancy (racial and political - Republicans).

I keep hearing about these variants, but I believe the story also usually comes with a byline that the vaccines appear to be effective against the variants.

The numbers don't appear to me to back up the conclusion. Steadily dropping rates of new infections indicate to me that the vaccines are working. It may take time, put I think enough people will get the vaccine to reach heard immunity. If half of all adults currently have had at least one shot, that means that at least half of all adults will have been fully vaccinated by the end of May. It will in all likelihood be 75% or more by the end of the summer, or sooner.

and india though they had reached herd immunity as well.


Easing of lockdown restrictions, new variants and reinfections are cited as potential driving factors

Saw what coming? That enough Americans won't get vaccinated and that that might lead to not reaching herd immunity?

You're acting like it was going to make a difference.
