The long lines that once stood at vaccination sites across the county are now much shorter and in some cases nonexistent.
The pace of vaccination is decreasing not only at the local level but also at the national level. Some doctors fear that if the demand for vaccines continues to decline, it will not be easy to achieve herd immunity levels.
In order to overcome the wall of reluctance to the COVID-19 vaccine, Dr. Paul Schalch, MD, otolaryngologist, says we need more than educational campaigns.
“Reminding people of what life was like before the virus and what it could be like, I think that’s the biggest motivation anyone can have,” Shcalch said.
Some places in the county are already putting this into play.
At Petco Park, people who can prove they have been vaccinated are allowed to sit in a special area, closer to the pitch, and where social distancing is not enforced.
The increased availability of seats for vaccinated or COVID-19-negative fans is helping Padres and businesses near the baseball stadium perform. NBC 7’s Lauren Coronado has the story.
“We have to highlight the main reason why we want to get people vaccinated; because we want to achieve collective immunity,” said Dr Schalch. “Herd immunity means that the economy opens up, we can go back to our usual routine, we can go to concerts, sporting events, go to the movies without having to worry. is everyone’s goal. “
The vaccines offering a vaccine to normal but without the majority of the vaccinated population, this vaccine remains distant.
