Even with my GED from an unaccredited testing institution in Guam, I can divine that even if 1/4 of Americans are idiots that still puts us over the 70 percent that Biden is shooting for.

As we have come to understand with politics, there is a constant 25 percent of the population that are mule-headed morans.  If only we could unleash some sort of plague on these individuals to thin out the numbers a bit...

I saw a message yesterday that vaccine hesitancy in St. Louis County is only 11.02%, the best rate in Missouri.  Almost makes one wish for checkpoints at county lines.

Except they are only talking about adults, so unless kids only make up 5% of the population we are screwed.

Article says the goal is to have 70% of eligible Americans vaccinated. So I figure LordBeavis is correct.

You are always going to have a certain percentage of people who are not going to get the vaccine. On the bright side since you've mostly (I hope) used Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, which have the highest efficacy, you will have herd immunity even with that non-compliant portion of the population remaining unvaccinated.

You'd be really screwed if you'd vaccinated most of your population with a vaccine with a low efficacy, like the J&J.

Then there should be no international travel for them then. And states should be passing laws requiring vaccination for hospital / careworkers as well as for community education & sports. If they want to be selfish assholes they should be excluded from as many situations as possible where they can cause harm.

The number is much higher than 24%.

We are sitting a little over 36% in my county. 41% among healthcare professionals.

Give it time for people to calm tf down about it being a very new vaccine. By next March I'd be willing to bet we're about 85% nationally...but also willing to bet we never get higher than that.

The flu shot works most years, but the number of people who get it is still laughable outside the groups who are required to get it.

Yes, but that's because it's an experimental drug and I follow the science so if I stick this fork in a wall socket I will be able to charge my phone by just holding it in my hand.

IIRC, it was as just under 50%, then about a third.
Now we are down to a quarter.

I'm not worried, they'll come around after a while, especially when we get free WiFi.

There are the same people who already don't have passports. They don't want to be exposed to anything that might cause them to question, well, anything.

Send Zuckerberg an invoice for COVID-19 facing expenditures generated by Facebook's user base.  He's shown he has no problem with censorship when it serves his interests.  Why should Facebook be able to push expenditure generating misinformation with impunity?  Freedom of Press does not translate to Freedom to Libel.

They just need a better delivery system, for Polio vaccines they used sugar cubes.

We could just fence off a square state and toss them all in their if they don't want to vaccinate and don't have a valid medical reason for not vaccinating.

It's clear now we were sold a cartoonish version of Nazi Germany, thanks to Indiana Jones and Hogan's Heroes etc. Many Germans were kind, generous, intelligent, and loving people who happened to have the worst possible government ever come to power. Many of these same Germans supported that government because that is the patriotic thing you do as a patriot. The "honest, true-blue, straight talking patriot" turns out to be an excellent candidate for the SS. It was unpleasant, but it was a necessary job for the fatherland.

'President Biden's goal to have 70% of eligible Americans vaccinated against COVID-19 by July 4 may be derailed by the nearly one-quarter of people who are still hesitant about getting vaccinated.

Today's media math:
100 - 24 = derailed because you can't get to 70

AGAIN, we knew this before there were vaccines. Not everyone gets/needs every vaccine.

Mad Scientist: Republicans are why this country can't have nice things.


It wasn't always the case.  Do you remember when the polio vaccine came out and Republicans said polio wasn't real and the vaccine would cause worse problems and this is the reason Polio is still a huge problem?  No?

"The same survey showed that 60% of U.S. adults had been fully vaccinated against the virus, with 4% partially vaccinated."

Not sure how accurate their results are considering the actual number of fully vaccinated adults is only 42%.

Vaccine eligibility for all U.S. adults (non-elderly, no pre existing conditions) has only been available since April 19th. That's 7 weeks. Then, you have to wait 4 weeks between the first shot and the second.

It's not difficult to figure out.

Our 7-day moving average is 400 deaths per day. After 15 months of this farking disease, everyone may be completely done with Covid-19, but for 400 people per day, it's very, very new.

Sorry you're dead, but at this point, getting Covid-19 is a choice. It's no longer a problem in the United States; it's something we want to fix in other, less fortunate countries.

International travel?  For these people, a visit to the nearest large city is like a trip to the moon.

Some of these people have never left their home state.

Not that it'll be an issue, as most nations outside the US will require proof of vaccine for entry.

Simple solution: you can't attend church unless you've been vaccinated.

Once the kids get full up, I give a rip about those who haven't gotten a shot. It's gonna be a self-correcting problem. Until the children, especially those under 12yo, get thieres, it's mask up and spread out voluntarily.

42% of the total population. 53% of adults. There's definitely some overreporting happening in the survey, but it's not too badly off. And shockingly on the mark for first doses.
