Dr. Fauci says herd immunity is 'unattainable' for COVID-19. Here's why

Achieving classical herd immunity against SARS-CoV-2 is "unlikely" despite the effectiveness of vaccines, according to health experts. Herd immunity refers to how much of the population needs to be vaccinated or infected with COVID-19 in order to "eradicate or eliminate" the disease.
