Dr. Anthony Fauci on Monday predicted that the United States could achieve herd immunity against Covid-19 by “the end of the second quarter 2021” after vaccines are more widely deployed.
Speaking to MSNBC’s Hallie Jackson, Fauci — who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases — said that, depending on the “efficiency of the rollout,” the Covid-19 vaccines should be widely available to most Americans by spring.
Depending on if enough people can be convinced to get inoculated, he said, it could be the case that “sometime by the end of March, the beginning of April, that the normal healthy man and woman in the street who has no underlying conditions would likely get it.”
By late spring or early summer, Fauci hopes the U.S. will attain “that umbrella of herd immunity.”
“By the time we get to the fall, we can start approaching some degree of relief where the level of infection will be so low in society we can start essentially approaching some form of normality,” he told Jackson.
