The White House continues to claim that the virus could be stopped in its tracks if everyone were vaccinated and boosted. They have also vilified the unvaccinated, claiming they were a threat to their families and society. However, the figures simply don't support their claims.
These figures are to be expected as a large majority of Americans have received at least one dose of a vaccine and those with the greatest risk of dying from the disease, such as the elderly, are more likely to have been vaccinated. Vaccines are still nevertheless the most effective protection against COVID, and strongly medically advised.
There's a 50% chance that there will be at least 1.11M confirmed COVID deaths in the US by the end of 2022, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
