Many Americans are already getting their vaccines for Covid-19.
Dr. Anthony Fauci says most Americans will be eligible for the vaccine by April.
This timing is very interesting, as a recent op-ed written in the Wall Street Journal by Dr. Marty Makary suggests that herd immunity may take effect by April.
While it is true that many others in the medical field have been very dismissive of the term “herd immunity,’ Dr. Makary suggests that it is the “inevitable result of viral spread and vaccination.”
Other experts such as CDC director Dr. Rochelle Wallensky dispute these claims, saying that the U.S. hasn’t yet vaccinated enough people to reach herd immunity.
There certainly is reason for optimism though, as it does appear that the amount of cases is decreasing rapidly.
In WSJ, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine professor writes: 'We’ll Have Herd Immunity by April; Covid cases have dropped 77% in six weeks.
