July 4 Covid-19 vaccination goal: The difference between 67 and 70%

Dr. José Mayorga, an assistant clinical professor of family medicine at the University of California at Irvine, told Healthline that history shows how we can beat COVID-19. “If you think about what other communicable diseases we have been able to eliminate in the United States with vaccines, it’s been due to a high uptake in vaccine rates,” he said. “Good examples are polio, mumps, and tetanus.”
