(LONDON) #Coronavirus Report: Achieving herd immunity with #COVID19 vaccines when the highly infectious delta variant is spreading is “not a possibility,” a leading epidemiologist said #AceHealthDesk report

#AceHealthReport – Aug.13: Experts agree on several reasons why such a goal — where overall immunity in a population is reached and the spread of the virus is stopped — is not likely.

#CoronavirusNewsDesk says that Sir Andrew Pollard Head of Oxford Vaccine Group has said that ‘Herd Immunity’ from the #Coronavirus Plague’ is not possible with the Delta Variant according to CNBC and Holly Ellyatt

Sir Andrew Pollard, head of the Oxford Vaccine Group, told British lawmakers Tuesday that as Covid vaccines did not stop the spread of the virus entirely — with vaccinated people still able to be infected and transmit the virus — the idea of achieving herd immunity was “mythical.”

“I think we are in a situation here with this current variant where herd immunity is not a possibility because it still infects vaccinated individuals,” said Pollard, one of the lead researchers in the creation of the AstraZeneca-University of Oxford vaccine.

“And that does mean that anyone who’s still unvaccinated, at some point, will meet the virus. That might not be this month or next month, it might be next year, but at some point they will meet the virus and we don’t have anything that will stop that transmission.”
