- All Americans should receive a coronavirus vaccine; they’re safe, effective and the tool we need to return to normal.
- With roughly 300 million doses given, more than 40 percent of U.S. residents are fully vaccinated for the coronavirus.
- As a growing portion of the U.S. population is protected from the coronavirus, both cases and deaths have plummeted.
- Newly reported cases and daily deaths associated with the coronavirus are at their lowest levels since last summer.
- Once someone is fully vaccinated, they should return to work and begin frequenting their favorite Main Street businesses with friends and family.
- The vaccine is not only your ticket to freedom, but the key to unlocking small businesses from their pandemic shackles.
Putting the Coronavirus into Perspective:
- 80 percent of coronavirus deaths are among Americans who are 65 years or older.
- Those under the age of 50 account for just four percent of all coronavirus deaths.
- Those under the age of 18 account for less than one-tenth of a percentage-point (05 percent) of all coronavirus deaths.
- If you’re under the age of 50 years old, you’re more likely to be struck by lightning in your lifetime than first contract and then die of the coronavirus.
