The costs of COVID-19 vaccines are also expected to skyrocket once the government stops buying them, with Pfizer saying it will charge as much as $130 per dose. Only 15% of Americans have received the recommended, updated booster that has been offered since last fall.

Even when the shots are free 85% of Americans reject them.

Good luck with $130 per dose.

Sure the double masked rich liberals in New York and California will keep getting them, but not main street Americans.

They've lost the plot.

Had my last booster in December. It was free. Wanted to get the flu shot at the same time. My insurance covers it, but only from their facilities, not at the local Walgreens, so I passed. That's $65 I chose not to waste. My insurance has a location about 10 minutes away - it is actually pretty convenient, but I just haven't crossed the highway to that part of town in about 4 yrs.

I'm not a liberal and live in a very red state, in a very red part of a very red county. I believe in science and think that vaccinations are in the top 5 inventions of all time by humans.

Not getting a booster doesn't mean people are rejecting anything. For whatever reason, it hasn't been a priority. Perhaps they had covid and the symptoms were mild, so they are treating it like most do with the annual flu. I think the last time I caught the flu was in the mid-1990s. I don't get vaccinated for it most years. I'm not rejecting the vaccine. It is that my situation doesn't make me have sufficient contact that I'll caught it, so it hasn't been a priority.
