I just saw a video of Fauci on CNN with Elizabeth Cohen at 8:15 PM EST.

I am completely computer illiterate so I can't show you. I hope someone can bring it up. It looks like it was last night. One of the things that were brought up was a vaccine. He is hoping that they might have a vaccine by the end of this year or the beginning of next year. The problem he brought up is he hopes it would be 70-75% effective. Then they talked about how many people would get the vaccine and that was 70-75%. That would mean that only 162,190,000 to 186,187,500 people would be helped by the vaccine. If anyone wants to give me a quick course on putting up a video, I would appreciate it.

Even Fauci thinks that only 70-75% will take the vaccine. marie999 Jun 2020 #5
I am not a medical professional, but would that mean anyone who got the vaccine was protected? 33taw Jun 2020 #4

Not exactly. If EVERYBODY gets the vaccine, and it works for 75%, we are all greatly helped. That is high enough to give herd immunity. The catch is, you have to get everybody to take the vaccine.

That's the problem. If only 75% take it, it had better work for over 90% of the people that do. This is, of course, if there is a vaccine. This is a novel coronavirus. There is still a lot they don't know about it.
