To herd immunity???
We were ‘told’ we would have herd immunity this year. Now, nobody is mentioning it either from the administration or from the CDC…
It’s enough to make one wonder what is really going on. We were ‘told’ the minimum needed was 70% inoculated/recovered to meet the CDC’s requirement for herd immunity. According to the chart below, we should be there in August…
The 9 May data shown indicates 114,000,000 have been fully immunized so far. So what’s going on???
This is from the Mayo Clinic, concerning herd immunity ‘issues’…
The U.S. is currently making progress toward herd immunity through a combined approach. The number of fully vaccinated adults continues to rise. In addition, more than 31 million people in the U.S. have had confirmed infections with the COVID-19 virus — though, again, it’s not clear how long immunity lasts after infection.
Given the challenges, it’s not clear if or when the U.S. will achieve herd immunity.
However, the FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines are highly effective at protecting against severe illness requiring hospitalization and death due to COVID-19. Even if it isn’t currently possible to stop transmission of the COVID-19 virus, the vaccines are allowing people to better be able to live with the virus.

But all the media can spout is the catastrophe in India, where less than 2 percent of Indians are fully vaccinated and less than 9 percent have received their first shot, thanks to a major COVID-19 vaccine shortage.

And the flip flops from the CDC and administration are doing nothing but confusing us… Texas and Florida are and have been open, yet show much lower infection rates than states that are still locked down. In other places, masking, social distances, etc. seem to change day to day, with no proven results or ‘science’ behind them.
And people are justifiably leery of some or all of the ‘vaccines’ due to the side effects and the CDC’s refusal to say those vaccinated can now move about/interact with others.
There is this from the BBC concerning FB/YT actions…
It said any videos that contradict expert consensus from local health authorities, such as the NHS or World Health Organization, will be removed.
It follows an announcement by Facebook that it would ban ads that discourage people from getting vaccinated.
However, that restriction will not apply to unpaid posts or comments.
YouTube had already banned “medically unsubstantiated” claims relating to coronavirus on its platform.
But it is now explicitly expanding the policy to include content relating to vaccines.
Fake news or??? We’ll never know. Full article, HERE.
OSHA has also come out with new guidance that if the vaccine is ‘required’ by the employer, it is now a fillable report and a workman’s comp claim if a worker has an adverse reaction/death…
Soooo… Companies are melting down, as this will hurt their bottom line if a bunch of employees have adverse reactions…
And the ‘other’ elephant in the room is how far are they going to push ‘vaccine’ passports? It’s one thing if you’re travelling overseas/to another country, but it’s totally different here at home. NY and some other locations are ‘pushing’ for these passports to attend events, travel, etc.
I don’t have any good answers to any of this, since I’m not a intarwebz/FB ‘expert’. I’m just a grumpy old man that is confused… sigh
Where do YOU think we’re going? And why is this handcart picking up speed???
