Dr. Anthony Fauci says he would settle for a COVID-19 vaccine thats 70% to 75% effective, but that this incomplete protection, coupled with the fact that many Americans say they wont get a coronavirus vaccine, makes it unlikely that the US will achieve sufficient levels of immunity to quell the outbreak.
With government support, three coronavirus vaccines are expected to be studied in large-scale clinical trials in the next three months.
The best weve ever done is measles, which is 97 to 98 percent effective, said Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. That would be wonderful if we get there. I dont think we will. I would settle for [a] 70, 75% effective vaccine.
A CNN poll last month found one-third of Americans said they would not try to get vaccinated against COVID, even if the vaccine is widely available and low cost.
In an interview Friday, CNN asked Fauci whether a vaccine with 70% to 75% efficacy taken by only two-thirds of the population would provide herd immunity to the coronavirus.
No unlikely, he answered.

Dr. F...Many people are worried about how effective the vaccine will be...They have legitimate concerns...
I don’t want any vaccine for an illness with a flu-like death rate that hasn’t been tested thoroughly and doesn’t have a long history.
Isn’t “herd immunity” the exact opposite of vaccinated immunity?
I am one of those who will not be getting the vaccine, if they ever come up with one.
I am not anti-vaccine, I’ve had many.
I do not get the flu shot because it is always last year’s flu they base it on.
hey America, are not happy enuf in
your 2020 FauXi-Xi TRAINING BURQAE?
get ready for your FauXi-approved,
FauXi patented-YEARS-ago, 99% pure,
bitchain-connected, baby and retrovirus containing
vaccine du jour .... for an RNA virus which mutates monthly
if you Refuse,
you will go to FULL BURQA
AND Xi and FauXi have a better model/Atrocity
waiting for next year to inflict MORE HORROR.
Yes. The exact opposite.
Someone help me make sense of this.
If the virus propagates widely enough, we will have herd immunity without a vaccine anyway, no?
If it mutates, then it can spread more and herd immunity wont matter as much, but then again, the vaccine will not be effective anyway! This is just the same as how the flu vaccine cannot keep up with the flu strains that spread seasonally.
But the Swine Flu vaccine worked out so well....
he’s an idiot...well those that get the vaccine will be “protected” and those that don’t will get the virus and will be protected after.
Either way it’s herd immunity.
Indeed. Tony, please shut up and go away. Your sell-by date has come and gone.
Whether or not there is a vaccine this year or next year or never, I feel 100% confident there will NEVER be another national lockdown in this country and probably in any other developed one.
I wonder if the true figures of how much the shutdown actually cost us in lives lost due to factors other than the China Virus?
It is truly astounding how badly we were had by this scam.
No way will I take that vaccine. No way. Or any other vaccine for flu-like stuff. Did you know 40% of people that take the flu shot get the freakin’ flu? I can’t even remember when I last had the flu. Ten years ago? Can’t remember.
No, that is not opposite. Herd immunity is when a virus gets into a population but cannot spread because too many people have immunity either from previous exposure, exposure to a similar virus, or vaccination.
“Isnt herd immunity the exact opposite of vaccinated immunity?”
No, herd immunity is what you achieve if a sufficient number of people get vaccinated.
Just follow the money. Money and fear, fear is a tool used by those who put the aquisition of money above all else.
fauci equates to a chronic hemorrhoid.
Unless you stay indoors indefinitely and slather everything and everyone that enters your house with Lysol, you will eventually be exposed to the current coronavirus. I’ll take my exposure in the form of a vaccine which has been tested for months - safer than simply taking on the virus from some infected cashier at Costco.
Fauci’s just lining up the rationale to force 100% compliance.
Pence really did Trump in with this task force of his.
