The coronavirus, which was started in the year 2019, has been spreading like wildfire all over the world. It has been the deadly virus that the world has faced so far. All the countries across the world are trying to control the spread of infections by imposing restrictions, lockdowns, by taking safety measures, and by finding vaccinations for the deadly virus. Even though all the countries all over the world are trying so hard to stop the virus from spreading, it has been difficult lately, which had subsided in December last year. Still, the infections peaked in mid-April, which not only increased the number of cases but also increased the death rates as well.
The United States Of America Might Reach 70% Vaccine Coverage By The Summer
Out of all countries, the United States of America stands at the top of the list, where it has the highest number of infected individuals and death rates. Even though restrictions are imposed, and safety measures are taken, and vaccinations are being produced, it has been challenging to control the spreading of infections. Now that there are a different variant of the same coronavirus is being detected in the countries such as India, South Africa, and Britain. But the government of the United States has been successful in controlling the spreading of infections by providing vaccinations to the citizens of America.
It was also reported that president Joe Biden when joined the administration in January, the total number of people who were vaccinated was only 1% of Americans, but now the United States of America has achieved almost 70% of vaccination rates at least the first dose of vaccination and more than 45% of Americans have received the second dose of vaccination. This shows that the United States has been trying to prevent and control the spread of the virus and its variants.
The United States of America conducted a poll to learn how many percentages of its citizen have received the vaccinations and how many are yet to receive. So as per the new poll results from the survey, those who were waiting to get vaccinated are making appointments or plans to receive their shots within the next three months. And it also suggests that the United States of America is on a track that at least 70% of the adult population against the coronavirus by summer. The recent reports from Kaiser Family Foundation suggest that 62% of Americans have received at least the first dose of vaccination, which was 56% in April, and this shows there is an increase in the total percentage.
Also, some of the people who had earlier said that they would wait and see have already scheduled their appoints to take the vaccinations, which might be done within a few months from now. The reports also mentioned that with 62% of people who have already received at least the first dose of vaccinations, 4% of people are saying that they want to take the vaccination as soon as possible. The other 4% of people are saying that they have already scheduled their appointment for vaccinations and will take it within the next few months. And the United States is inching towards president Joe Biden’s goal to reach 70% adult vaccination by July 4.
There are certain similarities between the previous poll and the current poll where 7% of the people are still saying that they will take the vaccination only if it’s required and about 13% of people are saying that they would never take the vaccinations. However, if the Food and Drug Administration authorizes the vaccinations, then the government can sway the people who do not want to take the vaccination.
