Brittany has a single dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and may survive the infection.

According to the CDC, 50.2% of the US population is fully vaccinated, and 58.8% of the population is at least first vaccinated.

“If you vaccinate the overwhelming majority of the population, you don’t know what the threshold is, but the virus goes away and you don’t have to worry, at least in this country,” Dr. Anthony Fauci, President Joe Biden Chief Medical Advisor, USA Today On the weekend. “Otherwise, you’ll have a smoldering level of infection, which will be confused with the flu in the fall, in the winter, and come back in the spring.”

Dr. Fauci argues that if unvaccinated, it may create new COVID-19 mutants that are resistant to the vaccine.

“Using Delta causes the virus to spread much faster than the original alpha variant,” Fauci said. “If you allow the virus to replicate for months, months, or months, you may have a mutant that escapes vaccine protection, and there is no guarantee, but it is possible.”

On the other hand, fully vaccinated people are still infected with COVID, but immunization significantly reduces the risk of hospitalization and death.
