100 Million Vaccines, Now What America?
by Alex Garrett
You wouldn’t know there were 100 million vaccines have been administered in America. Yet, President Biden said just that yesterday , but the urgency to open this country certainly is lacking .
In fact, the incredible insanity is the discussion of another lockdown ! What? Aren’t these vaccinations around to prevent another lockdown? To build an immune American again?
We see America reaching 100 million vaccines yet still being compared to places like Italy where cases are climbing again? What is the point of celebrating 100 million vaccines then? Just to say it?
As I said on my recent podcast, people will start asking why we still are at under 100% capacity if 100 million are now immune a year later? Where is the sense in that?
Our small businesses don’t have time to waste President Biden and NY Gov. Cuomo/ CA Gov. Newsom! They don’t! Americans cannot afford to wait for your decision of when to let us out from under your thumb . By waiting until June or July to ramp up to 100%, you effectively continue the death of America as we know it while celebrating 100 million vaccines given to Americans.
The CDC is continually shifting its guidelines, but the most I’ve seen is social distanced school openings and people who are vaccinated can congregate without wearing a mask. I haven’t seen anything else major they have done to move this country forward. I used to celebrate when the CDC relaxed guidelines, but now I say big whoop!
For nearly a year, I’ve also heard how much the science is telling us these measures have been necessary every step of the way, even the gradual reopenings. Vaccinations are the most progress made in this battle against COVID thanks to scientists working with Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca to develop these vaccines in rapid speed. Of course, the rapid speed is thanks to Operation Warpspeed, an initiative of former President Trump.
Yet, with all this progress , it appears we will continue to sit on our hands as a country and as a state even as the numbers of vaccinated rise. Should that pattern continue, I’ll really start asking ‘Now What, America?’
