Reports suggest that at the moment around 50% of the counties population has received their first dose of vaccination and that more than 30% are fully vaccinated. However, even the vaccination drive is facing issues as some people do not wish to be vaccinated and there also have been myths regarding the vaccine that are doing the rounds on the social media, which has started to make the youth reluctant towards taking the vaccine. Dr. Anthoni Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, said that it is important to take the complete dosage of the vaccine to gain maximum protection against the virus. Experts suggest that around 75-85% of the population need to be fully vaccinated to suppress the spread of the virus and thus eradicate it, but the hesitancy of the youth towards the vaccine might slow down this process. The authorities and medical experts are trying to clear the myths and assure everyone that the vaccine is completely safe and would help the people and the country in the long run. At a time when vaccines are abundant and the state authorities are trying to push more and more vaccines in the market, the hesitancy of the people towards getting vaccinated is surprising as what is happening around the globe regarding the second wave of Covid is visible to everyone, people must be afraid and support the authorities in taking precautionary steps to suppress the virus so that America can be declared Covid free at the earliest.
