Prayer #252: For Vaccinations and the Estimated Return to Normalcy
In an interview yesterday, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and, as well, a White House Coronavirus advisor, stated that, with the coming of COVID-19 vaccines, that life in the United States could return to pre-COVID normal by the end of the summer or the beginning of the fall of 2021. In order for this to happen by this timetable, Fauci said, 75-80% of U.S. citizens would need to be vaccinated in the spring, by which time the vaccines should be made available to the general public. Those with underlying conditions that make them especially vulnerable to a virulent attack of COVID-19, plus health care workers and residents of long-term care facilities, should be given vaccine priority, Fauci said.
Pray for the rollout of the COVID-19 vaccines, which are scheduled to start soon. Pray that the vaccinations would indeed have a decisive effect in reducing the present acceleration of the virus in many states across the country and in countries around the world. Pray that the vaccines would quickly become available to those who are most at risk for the virus. And pray that indeed, at least by next summer or fall, or earlier, COVID-19 will have been eradicated.
