My COVID Pandemic Predictions

This is what I see coming in the next few months.

I write a monthly blog post for

My February edition is "The Next Phase of the Pandemic."

I wrote the above on Super Bowl Sunday. Note that the president just today admitted that it will be September or later that anyone wanting a vaccine will be able to get one on demand.

An expectation I have is that an annual coronavirus vaccination will be needed, just like the flu vaccination because of mutations/variants. And, we don't know how long a vaccination provides protection. Much more science needs to be done on many aspects of the disease and our vaccines and their effectiveness.
