Apr 10 - America may be close to hitting a vaccine wall, Many are skipping 2nd shot
 

 

There are growing signs that parts of the country may be close to meeting demand for the coronavirus vaccine — well before the U.S. has reached herd immunity.

Why it matters: For the last few months, the primary focus of the U.S. has been getting shots to everyone who wants them, as quickly as possible. Soon, that focus will abruptly shift to convincing holdouts to get vaccinated.

State of play: Red states in the South are administering the lowest portion of the vaccine doses that they receive from the federal government — a sign of low demand, slow public health systems, or both.

The most vaccine-reluctant Americans are white Republicans, polling has found.

By the numbers: On average, states have administered 76% of the doses they've received from the federal government. New Hampshire has administered the largest share of all states, at 89.8%, while Alabama has administered the smallest — only 61.4% of its doses.

Driving the news: An analysis released by Surgo Ventures yesterday concluded that "the supply-demand shift for the vaccine will happen earlier than expected — as early as the end of April — and before the nation reaches the 70-90% threshold for achieving herd immunity."

It released a survey finding that 59% of U.S. adults say they're either already vaccinated, or plan to be as soon as the shot is made available to them.

At the current U.S. vaccination rate, all of those vaccine-enthusiastic adults could be inoculated by the end of April.

Vaccination rates will then slow, and Surgo's projections show that only around 52% of Americans will be vaccinated by July.

When combined with people who have already been infected, the immunity rate overall may be around 65% by then — still not high enough for herd immunity.


What they're saying: “This analysis shows that despite the general vaccine enthusiasm we are seeing now in the United States, things are going to get really difficult really soon,” said Sema Sgaier, Surgo's CEO.

“Without significant investment in addressing people’s barriers and making vaccines available to those below 18, reaching herd immunity will be a real challenge.”

A separate survey of rural Americans, released by KFF this morning, found that while they're more likely to have already been vaccinated than urban and suburban Americans, there are fewer remaining rural residents who are eager to get their shots.

39% have already gotten at least one dose of the vaccine, 16% say they'll get it as soon as possible, and 15% said they want to "wait and see."

Another 9% said they'll only get vaccinated if required, and 21% said they definitely won't.

In suburban areas, a combined 21% said they were vaccine resistant, and only a combined 16% of urban residents said the same.

Among rural residents who said they definitely won't get vaccinated, almost three-quarters were Republicans or Republican-leaning, and 41% were white Evangelical Christians.

The bottom line: Rural, Republican-heavy states are likely blowing through their vaccine-eager populations.

NEW YORK - The United States is now averaging more than 3 million vaccine shots every day.

Even as the program is accelerating, new cases are stubbornly still on the rise.

Side effects coming with the second dose of the Moderna and Pfizer vaccines have increased so-called vaccine hesitancy.

Some people are even hoping to get away with just one shot. But the National Institutes of Health is warning against stopping at one dose.

"When you just leave it at one dose, the question is, how long does it last?" Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of NIAID, said. "And when you're dealing with variants, you're in a tenuous zone."

Dr. Paul Offit, the director of the vaccine education center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, urges people to get both shots despite the side effects a*sociated with the second dose.

"Although it's true the second dose can cause fatigue and fever and headache and muscle ache, it is a small price to pay to be protected against this disease for a more durable or longer length period of time," Offit said.

He said that the overwhelming scientific evidence shows that both doses offer the best protection against COVID-19.

"Vaccines are the only way out of this pandemic and we are not going to get out of this pandemic unless we have at least 80% population immunity," Offit said. "You owe it to yourself and everyone you come in contact with to get this vaccine."

Dr. Shereef Elnahal, the CEO of University Hospital in Newark, New Jersey, also urges people not to be afraid of the mild side effects involving the second dose.

"You are seeing rising cases across the country now but very notably in New York City and in New Jersey because folks are more relaxed with restrictions and also because we have a largely unvaccinated population — only a little over 20%," Elnahal said. "So all of that increases risk to you and to your loved ones."

The race to vaccinate a majority of Americans is intensifying with the rise of new variants.

Health officials are warning that the U.S. is on the threshold of the fourth surge of this deadly virus.

Here goes another BX Covid 19 Vaccine Christian Ministry member forcing your belief and practices on others. If others don't have faith in the medical system and don't have as much belief in the "vaccine" as you do, then leave them be. Stop forcing your way of belief on others. If you believe in the "vaccine" and got it, then good for you. Leave other individuals alone and respect their decision.

This actually crossed my mind this morning. How many people don't care enough to get the second Shot.

Biden needs to announce a timeline... "You have X months to get the vaccine and then everything is back open."

I got the vaccine this year and now they are talking about making it yearly. I'm never getting it again.

It doesn't matter if it's the 2020's...other serious pandemics in history lasted at least a couple years, and there were sometimes outbreaks again years later....Meanwhile it hasnt even been 2 years since covid started spreading internationally. So it's going to be at least 1 more year until there is enough antibodies around the world.

You gotta hold Americans hand though this sh*t. We wouldn’t have these problems if there wasn’t so much mixed messaging & lack of leadership at the very beginning of this crisis.
