There’s a serious side to this, of course. That only about 9 in 10 people over the age of 65 are vaccinated means that 10 percent of the population that’s most at risk is not protected against infection. By more broadly vaccinating younger people, we reduce the likelihood that the virus will spread broadly, increasing protection for those older people. It’s not just about beating France. It’s also about, you know, trying to have fewer people die.
