Gizmodo - U.S. Ranks 59th for Covid-19 Vaccinations, Just Behind Iran

Our country thrives at generating total bullshit though. Surely we can be #1 in that.

The far-right U.S. Supreme Court has thrown out the OSHA test-or-vaccine mandate for businesses but allowed only the narrow mandate for healthcare workers.

This court Republican majority doesn't believe the feds can protect workers and workplaces from biohazards and other forms of harm like the law that President Nixon signed after Congress passed it.

The United States ranks 59th or worse when it comes to its population getting vaccinated in the world. That didn't happen by accident. We had all the vaccines we could use and still failed due to a stupid ass population and their death cult ideology.

NY Times - How Often Can You Be Infected With the Coronavirus?
A virus that shows no signs of disappearing, variants that are adept at dodging the body’s defenses, and waves of infections two, maybe three times a year — this may be the future of Covid-19, some scientists now fear.

The central problem is that the coronavirus has become more adept at reinfecting people. Already, those infected with the first Omicron variant are reporting second infections with the newer versions of the variant — BA.2 or BA2.12.1 in the United States, or BA.4 and BA.5 in South Africa.

Those people may go on to have third or fourth infections, even within this year, researchers said in interviews. And some small fraction may have symptoms that persist for months or years, a condition known as long Covid.

“It seems likely to me that that’s going to sort of be a long-term pattern,” said Juliet Pulliam, an epidemiologist at Stellenbosch University in South Africa.
