Per CDC 88% of US citizens 18 and over has had at least 1 vaccine shot !!

Thx Biden Admin !!!

https://covid.cdc.gov/covid-data-tracker/#vaccinations

Remember the stat is 18 and over which leaves nearly 100 million Americans NOT accounted for in this stat. Also, its 1 vaccine shot which might not represent Johnson and Johnson vax

Yeah, before CV19 Americans were "busy"

EDIT: Edit to reflect CDC stats vs ABS stats, ABC was extrapolating from different data IINM. Stat is STILL VERY VERY good.

vax rates in many states (e.g. California and most of New England). There is something clearly wrong with the reporting.

... flooding message zones like the GZP.

I no longer believe dem messaging isn't doing what they can, its GZP getting outside help to flood message zones via US SM. When Russians shut down US SM sites Dem messaging floated to the top VERY Quick.

Not only that MAGA Media is very coordinated along with GZP to flood broadcast radio and TV. The FCC knows this and should do their job vs trying *NOT* to look partisan which sounds like a common theme in US government.

There are 210m Americans over the age of 16, 3% = over 6 million people the M$M seeks out to cause bullshit.

I live in one of the most liberal sections of one of the bluest counties in one of the bluest states, and I personally know of at least three out of my nearest six neighbors who are rabid unvaccinated magats.

Just sayin.

... the 100 million Americans were only 50% are vaxed which makes the whole rate at 82% which is still a good number seeing 6 and under can NOT get vaxed.

Most people didn't have a problem with vaccines before COVID. They had no problem with flu shots. But somehow, the right wing media and TFG made COVID vaccines a huge issue making a lot of people change their views on vaccines.

Hundreds of thousands died at his hands due to the misinformation spread by TFG personally and his "experts" in general.

TBH, I think a little skepticism at the very beginning when vaccines were available is understandable. I probably wouldn't want to be the first million people to get it. And I wasn't qualified to get it early anyways. But by the time more than a million got the vaccines and were fine, that excuse no longer worked.

But Biden's AR falls based on inflation and gas prices he has no control over ?!

Yeah, there's something wrong and I'm starting to lean away from it being dem messaging.

Refused to let themselves be used for political purposes. I remember the companies holding off on making the announcements that the vaccines were ready for approval until after the election, which undoubtedly pissed off TFG bigly because he wanted to go on TV and claim credit for it all.

He claimed victory at it anyways all the while he is sorta kinda anti-vax. It was a whole lot of crazy rhetoric that made no sense. COVID is supposed to be no worst than a flu but somehow, he claims his warp speed vaccines saved 10m people. So is COVID serious or not?

I do understand that that's what the article says:

About 97.1% of the U.S. population over 16 has gotten at least one dose, and about 82.7% of those over 16 are fully vaccinated. About 75.5% of the adult population is fully vaccinated.

I just think that the person who wrote that is incorrect.
