Woohoo! Good job everyone. Cases are in the double digits, deaths are in the single digits, hospitalizations are at March 2020 levels. Seems like they say any likely Covid surge in the winter will be regional and so let’s try to vaccinate enough so we will not be one of those regions.

Same thing with the summer when people stay inside to avoid the oppressive heat. I’m somewhat worried that two areas with lower vaccination numbers are PG county and Baltimore city, but I’m hopeful we can focus more resources in those specific areas to boost our vaccination numbers

I know soooo many people in PG county who aren’t getting vaccinated because “they don’t trust it” it’s really annoying

I think the only folks still wearing masks in public are ones who got the vaccine..


motherofchildwithKC

I think that is pretty much true


SYLOK_THEAROUSED

Yup, I’m vaccinated and I still wear my mask.


NinjaBilly55

Me too and I'm not stopping anytime soon..

49.8% according to this source https://www.google.com/search?q=how+many+americans+are+fully+vaccinated+for+covid

This is dated June 7 which is yesterday. Today we went over the 50% mark.


vegdc

Where do you see that date?


Buckeyekilla513

It says “Last updated 2 days ago” on the graph


vegdc

Just check it again. It is now at 50%


vegdc

Ah. Glad I asked. It perpetually says that though I have seen it update several times a day.

So what’s going on with the other half?


tacitus59

Can't (underage or legit reason), won't, or had their first shot.


Donald_J_Putin

Well that’s tautological. “Why aren’t people doing X?” “Because they having done X, can’t do X, or don’t want to do X”.

What explanation did you want? We can rule out "can't" - they can't (yet or won't ever be able to). So, for "haven't" - either they've done their first and are waiting on the second, or they haven't made it a priority, or they want to but haven't been able to (house bound, no time, no nearby option?) For "won't"... Well, they don't want to. We've tried to tempt them with lottery money, and the promise of not having to wear a mask. Or they're idiots and will never get it.


Donald_J_Putin

Well my comment originally was rhetorical, as in what’s wrong with people who won’t.

Kudos to Gov. Hogan and Maryland for not going down the rabbit hole of "one shot" and tracking fully vaccinated.

Is Larry not wearing glasses lately? Has he also lost weight? Something about him in this photo is screaming "national candidate", comparedto his usual, more frumpy look...?
