Improving vaccine distribution in all states

Lauren Leatherby and Amy Schoenfeld Walker reporting for The New York Times: “Every state is improving,” said Claire Hannan, the executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers. “We still don’t have enough to vaccinate everyone over 75, so it doesn’t necessarily feel different for people who are trying to find the vaccine, but we are in a much better place now.” Good.

How quickly the U.S. is vaccinating vs. how long it’ll take to get back to “normal”

Vaccines provide light at the end of the tunnel, but when we finally get to the end depends on the speed at which we vaccinate. The Washington Post considers Joe Biden’s pledge for 100 million shots in his first 100 days in the context of herd immunity and calendar days.

Vaccination rates for every kindergarten in California

Bubbles are sized by enrollment and colored by rate, where red represents under 60 percent and blue represents at or above the rate recommended by the CDC for herd immunity. Glad the Times was able to get this data together. Important. Tags: New York Times, vaccination

Vaccination rate and measles outbreak simulation

You've probably heard about herd immunity by now. Vaccinations help the individual and the community, especially those who are unable to receive vaccinations for various reasons. The Guardian simulated what happens at various vaccination rates. Luckily, the measles vaccine — administered in the form of the MMR for measles, mumps and rubella — is very effective. If delivered fully (two doses), it will protect 99% of people against the disease....
