Vaccine Good News for a change

[ Edited ]

From Ron Klain WH Chief of Staff:

 

50 million shots given in the past 37 days - no other country has done it.

 

There are about 55 Million Americans who are over 65:

 

-- Six weeks ago only 8% had gotten a shot

-- Today almost 50% have gotten at least one shot

 

Long way to go, but don't get discouraged we are making progress.

 

p.s. Update:70.5 million doses now administered and we have about 55 million people that are over 65.  That age group is either the target or the requirement to register.  So we could easily be at the 50% mark for over 65.

I am SO pleased, and proud of this!

The US was very behind!

I'm over 75, and I'm not one of them who has been fortunate enough to be vaccinated. And I TOTALLY AGREE WITH YOU- I'm NOT discouraged, and we ARE making progress, and it WILL get better!

I honestly found it hard to believe you hadn't heard all the news yesterday with the 50million given in 37 days.  To be honest I couldn't figure out why.   It's on the news and on every website, but much to my surprise it isn't on one website.  

 

The big conservative website said nothing!! I was absolutely stunned in fact that I couldn't find anything about the coronavirus anywhere. (Like we are giving 1.5 million vaccines per day now.)

 

Every other site including my little local twice a week newspaper has a data recap right in your face, on the front page, impossible to miss.  All the data of where we are as a country and as a state. Easy to see number of cases, deaths, vaccinated etc.

Yes, I learned years ago not to believe everything I see or hear. Lots of false information available unfortunately.

In all honesty I don't know what to believe when it comes to this virus or anything else it's involved with including the people who do the counting.

As for who's heard what and who hasn't, it could also be a function of the reality that many of us are primarily concerned with getting ourselves and families vaccinated and are not so invested in following daily statistics... That fifty percent of seniors and others at risk might have had a single shot doesn't mean much for those going into their second month of waiting to be scheduled, and when the system of distribution, overall, still seems to be one in disarray...
