First vaccines were distributed Sunday December 13th, and as of January
15, according to the U.S. federal government 31.2 million doses have been
delivered to states, territories and federal agencies.
Bill Boesch, special logistics advisor to the U.S. military
told FlyingTypers, “Operation Warp Speed expects to be
able to ship and distribute 30 million vaccines per month until around
March/April when the 4 other vaccines in addition to Pfizer and Moderna
are ready to be distributed to the public.
“When we eventually have 6 different vaccines ready
to distribute, upwards of 100 million vaccines per month can be delivered.
“The CDC is projecting that herd immunity can be achieved
once a minimum of 70% of the nation receives the vaccine, or about 230
”By these numbers, herd immunity can be achieved by
July at the earliest.
“This is assuming everyone that is able to get the
vaccine will take it and come back after the mandated time to receive
their second dose of the vaccine,” Bill declared.
“If that does not happen it may not be until the end
of 2021 before herd immunity is achieved.
“My gut feeling is end of March/early April will be
when people will start to really open things back up.”
Well, we are all standing by watching for that small light
at the end of the tunnel to move rapidly forward and envelope us all in
daylight once more.
