With No More Masks Required, What Do You Think Final America Vaccinated % Will Be [View all]

Dr. Fauci had said Herd Immunity would require roughly 80% to be vaccinated. IMO, that ship has sailed.

Personally, I think that we'll end up with between 60-70% full vaccinated. Since I'm a glass half full type of guy, especially given everything America has demonstrated they're capable of when it comes to handling a deadly pandemic, I'm going with the lower end of that range.

My prediction. 64% when all is said and done. I give it maybe a 20% chance of exceeding 70%.
