Get Vaccinated: Dr. Jerome Adams has a frank advice for everyone who values freedom and despises mask regulations or distant learning. And it’s coming because the pandemic is once again spiralling out of control. And it’s getting out of hand because there aren’t enough people who have been Vaccinated. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 49.1% of Americans were fully Vaccinated as of Sunday.
There aren’t nearly enough vaccines to stop the spread of the Delta variant, the most contagious strain of new coronavirus yet discovered. According to data from Johns Hopkins University, the rate of new Covid-19 cases increased by at least 10% in 48 states this week compared to the previous week. The rate of new cases increased by more than 50% in 34 of those states.
Current US Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy said, “The thing that’s making this possible is the fact that we are dealing with the most transmissible version of Covid-19 that we’ve seen to date. It’s going to help every single American enjoy the freedoms that we want to return to.”Vaccine mandates, according to Adams, would be the quickest method to raise vaccination rates. But that won’t happen unless the US Food and Drug Administration gives its full approval. The FDA has cleared each vaccination available in the United States for emergency use, but they have not yet been completely approved.
