I think the scientist was referring to the Covid situation being 'normal' rather than wider society, Mental Health , City's away form etc . Anyway I will shut up, as I am finding myself turning in to Ant Moxey !!
I think it's the other way around. Yes, Herd Immunity needs to be effective but a working vaccine should play a big part of that.Doesn't a vaccine need the herd immunity thing to be effective.
Anti-vaxxers are going to cause so many problems in making this vaccine roll-out successful.I think it's the other way around. Yes, Herd Immunity needs to be effective but a working vaccine should play a big part of that.
With things like measles, the vaccine needs to cover above 95%. With something like flu with its all its complexity and mutations, getting above 90% has never been achievable, nowhere even close to that.
Well yes, you have those that won't taking any vaccines come what may. But that's still a small percentage.Anti-vaxxers are going to cause so many problems in making this vaccine roll-out successful.
I had that thought in the back of my mind. It's going to take a very long time to eradicate it.What I don't quite get is what happens to the 50 mill who aren't vaccinated. Say the 10 million most at risk from CV are vaccinated initially - by Easter for example. Care home and medical staff, the over 75's and the otherwise most vulnerable. That might tick the box of shielding people and 'protecting the NHS', but it doesn't stop CV from being in general circulation.
Is it left to rip through on the basis the effects are milder for everyone else and the NHS can cope with those that it isn't or are we still severely hampered?
