6. They

are probably the ones throwing coronavirus parties and believe they can cure it by drinking some bleach-water.

We aren't going to achieve universal vaccination, we just need to get enough people that the disease R0 stays under 1.

It's not going to matter if there are 20 or 30k COVID-19 cases annually in the country. We just need to get enough people vaccinated to keep the spread low. That includes vaccinating the most vulnerable at as high a possible percentage. Include COVID vaccination as part of the mandatory public school vaccine regime. Require it to hold any medical license. Require it for anyone seeking a food handlers license.

We won't get everybody, but we can apply enough leverage that most people will get the shot.

Of course there is always the chance that the rolling out of the shot is botched. That's highly likely if Trump is in charge when it happens. All the more reason to show up in November and elect Biden.
