They will get it eventually. It's going to be around for a long while. Maybe permanently, since there are plenty of wild animal reservoirs. As more lethal variants emerge, vaccinated people will be kept out of the hospitals by their T-cell immunity so they get asymptomatic or mild cases. But the virus they spread will be more lethal to those not vaccinated or previously infected, Uninfected and unvaccinated people make up a sizable chunk of the US population. I think this is not going to go well for them.

But maybe anti-vaxxers will learn an important lesson and public health will regain some of it's rightful place in American politics.


We're flying electric helicopters on Mars yet you can't turn on your clothes dryer in Texas. That's because scientists are in charge of Mars, and Republicans are in charge of Texas.
