Mg Siegler writing for 500ish:
“As everyone is undoubtedly well aware by now, we’ve turned the corner from vaccine scarcity to abundance in the U.S. Basically, everyone over a certain age (as of today, 12) who wants a vaccine can get one and often immediately in many parts of the country. The problem now is the group — which is sizable, perhaps 25–30 percent of the country — which does not want to get a vaccine or flat-out refuses, for whatever reason.
And yet, to fully beat this thing — to declare ‘VV Day’ — we need at least some, and ideally most of those people to get the vaccine too.”
