Herd immunity months away at current vaccination rate, health experts warn

LEE COUNTY, Fla. — Coronavirus vaccine demand is down and health officials warn that we’re months away from herd immunity at the current vaccination rate.

Some people said that myths surrounding the COVID-19 vaccine are what’s deterring them.

Around 45 percent of Americans have gotten at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine — nearly 40 percent of which are already fully vaccinated.

Just a few months ago, millions of doses were going into arms every day. Today, those numbers are declining rapidly.

Medical experts said that they’re combating misinformation to help get us on the road to herd immunity.

“In the beginning, we had our appointments fully booked, now we’re seeing where we have appoints available for walk-ins,” Ben Levene, the Managing Partner at Center Pharmacy, said. “I know there’s obviously a lot of myths out there. I do think there are some people on the fence, I think they’re a little hesitant. There’s a lot of information out there.”

Some of the most common questions medical experts have heard about the vaccine are about its relation to infertility and why masks and social distancing are still recommended for fully vaccinated people.

There is absolutely no evidence that the vaccine causes problems with pregnancy or issues with fertility, according to officials with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Also, wearing masks and social distancing — even after getting vaccinated — is to protect others around you since you could still transmit the virus to unvaccinated people.

If you have additional questions about the COVID-19 vaccine or its side effects, ask your doctor.
