world? dr. patel is a part of our vaccine team. what do you make of the governor's announcement today? is it too soon or are we really ready? >> i think we will be ready by june. with the way we are going with public behavior it looks like with people really adhering to masks and other restrictions, i think from a scientific and data standpoint we will be ready. as of right now, we are about two months away from the june goal, we have a very low test positivity rate in the country. our death rate is low. i know people are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and we are in charge of that. what is really important is it is a tangible goal. people know the date and they know exactly how it will affect their lives. it is something we have been waiting for for more than a year. >> it seems attainable at this point which is encouraging. will enough people be vaccinated if we stay on pace to reach herd immunity by june? >> herd immunity is complicated. it can be a moving target. i know we said 75%-85%

4:05 pm
falling backwards? >> of course. that is exactly why we have heard of these conferences today talk about the fact that the june date is a contingency based on vaccine supply but also a case rates and hospitalizations. we know a mask mandate will be in effect. that is really important to prevent the spread but also, these variants can have their own story. we see this play out in the midwest in michigan where he 117 is easily especially especially amongst young people. we are still in the driver seat. we know what to do to get to the june finish line. >> let's talk about the need to continue to social distance, wash our hands and wear masks even if you are vaccinated. is that correct? >> as of right now, it is. we don't have the clear-cut proof to show vaccination will prevent transmission. with suspected. with the a play out in a real- world data but we haven't seen the recommendations. that is what people should be
