If people are satisfied now, they say, they can pay the price for dropping booster doses or failing to vaccinate their children.

He did not repeat the previous administration’s claim that the country could face 100 million epidemics next fall and winter. Instead, he said, the statistics of biological statisticians vary greatly depending on estimates of how much immunity and other complex factors have developed in the population.
