Eligibility for the vaccine will be marked this week

To date, more than 69 million Americans have received at least one dose of Covid-19 vaccine, while more than 36.9 million are fully vaccinated, according to CDC data.

But the US is still in a very vulnerable place.

The Covid-19 is still spreading and needs to be tackled aggressively if we want life to return to normal soon, Fauci told CNN on Sunday morning.

Although new daily cases have fallen since January, “in the last two weeks, they have stagnated,” said the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases.

“When you see a plateau at a level of up to 60,000 cases a day, it’s a very vulnerable time to have an increase, to go up again. That’s exactly what happened in Europe.”

In efforts to increase the number of inoculations alongside these concerns, state leaders across the country are announcing the expansion of vaccine eligibility:

Alaska, people who live or work in the state and are 16 years of age or older can get the vaccine. The Pfizer Covf-19 vaccine is the only one available to people over the age of 16, while the Moderna and Johnson & Johnson vaccines are limited to people over the age of 18.

Rhode Island eligibility opened Friday for residents ages 60 to 64, as well as people ages 16 to 64 with certain underlying health conditions.

Georgia, residents aged 55 and over and people with disabilities and certain medical conditions will be eligible for the vaccine from Monday.

Also starting Monday, Kentuckians Those over the age of 16 with any medical or behavioral condition that the CDC may be at increased risk for serious Covid-19 disease will also be eligible for the vaccine. Health officials added that smoking will not be in the conditions covered in the state.

Meanwhile in California, people with certain high-risk medical conditions or disabilities will also be eligible for the vaccine on Monday.

Remember: Biden has directed the states towards open vaccines to all adults before May 1st.

“After this long and hard year, this will make this Independence Day really special, where we will not only mark our independence as a nation, but we will begin to mark our independence from this virus,” he said. month.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: Covid’s guidelines “will be much more liberal” on July 4 if cases are reduced in the U.S. “If when we get to the fourth of July, with the launch of the vaccine, we get such a low level of infection, I won’t be able to tell you exactly what the specific guidelines for the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are, but I can tell you for sure (the guidelines) will be much more liberal than they are right now about what you can do, “he told Jake of CNN, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Tapper a “State of the Union. “

Summer time survey

Most of us lost an hour of sleep last night thanks to the start of daylight saving time, which is not a controversial topic.

An AP-NORC survey since 2019 it was found that only 31% of Americans wanted to spend the summer year-round.
  • This exceeded the 28% I wanted to keep switching back and forth between daylight saving time and standard time.
  • But he still dragged the 40% he longed for standard time all year.

In other words, there is no consensus.

And as Harry Enten of CNN writes, has been like this for a while: As far as I know, there has never been a clear majority in favor of moving to daylight saving time all year round.

When Gallup asked the first question in the early 1940s, Americans were constantly opposed to having it all year. For example, only 36% of Americans approved moving to year-round summer time in 1941. This is quite similar to where voting is at the moment. The clear majority (53%) rejected daylight saving time throughout the year.
