Millions of health care workers, volunteers, and lawmakers have been working hard for months to make sure every American who qualifies to get the COVID-19 vaccine can get it in order to reach herd immunity.“With supply increasing, and enthusiasm for vaccination leveling out, we’re going to hit this tipping point where supply is going to exceed demand and it’s going to get harder and harder to persuade people to get vaccinated,” said Larry Levitt, executive vice president of the Kaiser Family Foundation.
NUTLEY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — More than 86 million U.S. adults are now fully vaccinated, but experts fear that enthusiasm for getting the vaccine could be falling and many Americans may be too eager to take off their masks.The Kaiser Family Foundation analysis predicts enthusiasm to get vaccinated may peak in the next two to four weeks.
Still, these are probably isolated incidents.But it’s important to be clear: They are mistakes.Congress has passed a law requiring that every American be provided the vaccine for free, no matter what health insurance they have or whether they have insurance at all.
Insurers are expanding into new markets, and some who abandoned it long ago in the law’s fraught early years are now reentering.
