I encourage you to go look at Iceland and Gibraltor. Gibraltor has a 100% vax rate, Iceland is close. Both are having large case waves. Check on Worldometers or any similar site. How many times do I have to say that the age structure in a fully vaxed population will look like the age structure in a fully unvaxed population. And I used to add that the absolute numbers, however, would be lower. Now I am not sure. If Minnesota keeps going, we will have as many cases, hospitalizations and deaths as we did last late fall and early winter, but last year no one was vaxed. The Governor told us the vaccines would end the epidemic, after he told us masks would, after he told us lockdowns and school closings would. He is not alone. He is also an idiot who knows nothing and understands nothing. We need, we must have, a different plan. And actually, the plan is no plan. Just say its over. You can’t stop the virus until it runs through the population. I give you Florida today. And even then, it will be back, just like influenza. All the damage we did made no difference, just imposed a lot of self-inflicted wounds. Time to stop that.
