BTW, as an aside, I believe this was, in fact, around where the
numbers were before heavy government vaccination programs. I believe
that the programs have only achieved about a 5% increase in
vaccination rates, too. I may be wrong, though -- I am basing this
entirely on a possibly misremembered NY Times article I read perhaps
five years ago. I would be interested in knowing the actual numbers.
