Title

Why is Covid Spiking in Vermont?

Description

The Boston Globe asked, "Vermont, the most vaccinated state in the nation, has been weathering a spike in COVID cases. But why?"

Their answer: "Infectious disease experts suspect that Vermont, in a way, may be a victim of its own success, leaving it more vulnerable to infections now, especially compared to states that didn’t blaze as impressive an early path. Because so many Vermonters stepped forward early to get their shots, many may have waning immunity now, making them more susceptible to breakthrough infections. And because the state did such a good job of keeping COVID case numbers down through much of the pandemic, fewer Vermonters developed natural immunity from actually fighting the virus.
