Here's a close look at the most pressing scientific questions about the impact of widespread COVID-19 vaccination. Hospitalization rates. Transmission. Herd Immunity. Durability. Variants. Return to "normal." Read all about 'em. sciencemag.org/news/2021/02/h…pic.twitter.com/XEHWBWAw3P
@sciencecohen @InfectiousDz "By 1961, 6 years after it was licensed, only 54% of the U.S. population had received the vaccine, yet paralytic polio cases had dropped by more than 90%."
Kindof an odd comparison, given the age targeting of IPV rollout in the 1950s.
We won't see a 54/90 split w/Covid.

It’s the question on everyone’s mind: How soon will #COVID19 vaccines return life to normal?
My colleague @sciencecohen lays out the answers we have so far and you really should read it.
