Yes, we will! But, we really all have to do it together!!!

Staying still.
Social responsibility.

... vaccination.
And, I put vaccination there because a lot of ppl use the “I’ll just wait for herd immunity argument” to justify their right/choice to not get vaccinated. Here is a thread of why that is a flawed argument.
1. There are people who may not be able to be vaccinated yet. (Immunocompromised, children, etc.) thus refusing your dose means one less able person to build that critical population immunity. Vaccination IS community service.
2. Herd immunity only protects you in an aptly (70% +) immune population. Thus is your community in any given moment (during travel, other side of town, etc.) is not there... you as an unvaccinated person are again vulnerable.
3. Lastly... (I have more but I’m tired)
4. 😂😂😂

Live view of our neutralization assay team scrambling to make yet another virus variant every time the media publishes about a new single amino acid change without context. 😒
Here is the context: you are going to read and hear about a million and one variant viruses, because viruses mutate by nature. It’s scary, I know. But, a couple of amino acids is not the same a whole whole new virus strain in the way that we’ve been taught to think about flu.
What is happening, often times, is selective pressure. As the virus transmits it learns how to be better at transmitting. This is why you hear “circulating faster than last variant”...

Live view of me watching tv specials about the vaccine, and thinking it’s great there are infographics, but then seeing that the mRNA-expressed spike proteins aren’t transmembrane-anchored.
Ok, my lay followers are gathering me up in the comments like “huh?” I was purposely making a corny science joke, but folks are here to learn. So...
The spike protein is a surface molecule on the virus so the point of vaccination is to teach your immune system how to recognize it. So if you come in contact with the virus later your body is quick to fight off the virus.
