There is no vaccine left in the United States
Chicago this month ended major restrictions on major events as vaccinations progressed in the US. all in, 52% if Americans vaccinated with only one dose and 44% are fully immunized.
In Chicago, just above the national average, 46% of the population is already fully vaccinated. Of the 2.7 million inhabitants in this group, there are about 1.5 million, according to CDC, the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which tracks vaccination numbers.
However, the pace of vaccination has slowed down. The number of vaccinations per day in Chicago, which already exceeded 30,000 people in April, fell in half since from.
The scenario repeats in the rest of the US, as the government of President Joe Biden and state governments intensify campaigns to persuade the population to vaccinate.
The decline is not caused by a lack of vaccines, but by the population’s decision not to vaccinate. The Biden government aims to reach 70% of the population by July, but the target has become difficult.
Falling vaccination pace could stifle plans to reopen major US cities, leaving areas more exposed to a new wave of pandemics and tensions coming from overseas.
In addition to the City of Chicago, many other local governments have offered gifts and perks to vaccinated people. The neighboring state of Ohio won a $1 million prize for vaccinated citizens. The companies also offer free perks like sandwiches and free meals.
