By Zoila Palma: Health experts say that COVID-19 vaccines may limit the damage of a 4th COVID-19 wave, claiming that it will not be as bad as the other 3 waves in the United States (US). However, experts warn that people should still take precautions.

Yahoo News report that a deadlier variant of coronavirus that originated in the United Kingdom (UK) is reported more in the US now. Despite this new variant, vaccination efforts may blunt the worst effects of the 4th wave of cases.

On a per day, the US has administered up to 4 million doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. In addition, the US Center for Disease Control reports that three quarters (¾) of Americans 65 and older have received at least 1 dose of the vaccine.

“The B.1.1.7 variant (ie. the UK variant) is almost a new virus. It’s acting differently from anything we’ve seen before in terms of transmissibility and in terms of affecting young people. The good news is all the vaccines seem to work just as well against it,” Peter Hotez of the Baylor College of Medicine told CNN.

Despite the pace of administration of vaccines and their effectiveness, the public is warned to continue to take precautions by wearing their masks and maintain social distancing.
