More than half the population. Now, in those orange high risk counties where the cdc says you should be masking indoors in those yellow medium risk areas, they say consider masking, based on your individual risk, masking, where appropriate, vaccinating people who aren’t vaccinating and boosting people who are ready and eligible for their Boost we can do that, but we’re not doing it to the extent that we should be doing it and more than half of eligible americans still haven’t gotten their first booster. But a new cdc analysis shows protection against initial omicron variants. Increased with each booster shot suggesting the current vaccine may still protect against serious illness from ba-5. Very, very clear in my mind that your risk of ending up in the icu is dramatically higher.
