Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the United States needs “about 600 million doses of vaccines” to serve the entire population.

Fauci believes that between 70% and 85% of the population needs to be immunized against the virus for this type of immunity to take effect.
“I hope that by the time we get to this point, as the president says, we have enough vaccinations for everyone who requires it, that people get out and that we have actually vaccinated 70% or 80% of the population, which possibly it will lead us to herd immunity ”.
