U.S. First Time Vaccination Rates Are At a New Low – A year after the first coronavirus vaccine was discovered in the United States, and after months of political upheaval over-vaccination orders, the country’s vaccination campaign seems to be hitting the wall, with very few people starting to be shot.
An average of 76,000 Americans a day received their first dose this week, the lowest number since December 2020, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The amount of total doses per day, including first dose, second dose, and booster, is also very low since then. That is far from the peak of the April 2021 vaccination campaign, in which an estimated 1.8 million Americans a day had their first shot.
First-time vaccination rates in the U.S. are at a new low.
It seems that people who were ready to be vaccinated have already received their vaccines, and those who did not close the vaccine or did not respond to the vaccine now have fewer motivations to change their minds. Covid-19 case statistics, hospitalizations, and deaths are declining, and many provinces are back to sending a mask.
“Talking to vaccinated patients is one of the most frustrating things I have ever done as a doctor,” says Drs. Irwin Redlener, pediatrician and director of the National Center for Disaster Preparedness. “The strange thing here is that general public health messages, such as ‘If you get Covid and you are not vaccinated, you are 20 times more likely to die than if you were vaccinated,’ work with these patients. The scientific truth of black and white is in stark contrast with the inaccurate knowledge of science. ”
As the United States approaches its two-year anniversary, the social situation is marked by fatigue and frustration, a recent report states. This attitude transcends biased lines and transcends age, gender, race, nationality and income groups. The public is now reportedly more concerned about the impact of the Omicron wave on the economy than on their health and well-being, the report said.
“There are a lot of wishes that we are done with this epidemic, which we are not,” said Dr. Redlener, adding that the possible increase in new varieties and varieties makes it as urgent as immunization as before. “I would not be worried if people said, ‘We are suffering from this, we want to get back to normal, but we will be vaccinated.’ common and doubtful policy. ”
About 76 percent of Americans receive at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine. Experts estimate that with only about 65 percent of the population completely vaccinated, the United States has little hope of achieving herd protection. Nearly 80 million Americans are still not vaccinated, which puts them at higher risk of hospitalization and death from Covid-19.
