    A #pandemic is still ravaging the world, but how quickly are people getting vaccinated for COVID-19? Infections won’t stop unless the world is rid of the virus by establishing herd immunity. The sooner we vaccinate the people, the less the infection. The less the infection, the slower mutating of the #virus. The slower mutation, the better we beat this at last. China has administered 400 million #vaccines domestically, inoculating roughly 30 percent of its population. But the road ahead is still an uphill battle. How do we get there?
