Meta / Other What will happen to the Herman Cain Award when the pandemic is (actually) defeated and herd immunity occurs?

618 Upvotes

The pandemic is still going on, even if Biden has single-handedly declared it over. Yes, it is not as pronounced as it once was, but waves still occur here and there. (I'm talking about the whole planet, not just the US.) Perhaps we should at least still speak of local epidemics. But eventually even those will be mostly defeated, at least that's my hope, because there are already adapted vaccines coming on the market that, if enough people get vaccinated with them, will further hinder/dampen the spread, which will also keep possible mutation of the virus small, since with less reproduction there are also fewer opportunities for mutation. This (unfortunately) also spares/protects vaccination opponents/refusers if a certain herd immunity is achieved, especially since some are also immune for at least a certain period of time due to having survived the disease.

Therefore, the question arises: what will become of the Herman Cain Award? Will people who die through general science denial and rejection then be awarded here, for example, if a person dies from measles, rabies or tetanus? Or will we simply wait for the next pandemic of another virus or bacterium? Who will be honoured here in the future?

The FDA just approved two new vaccines targeted to BA.5: a Pfizer vaccine for people who are at least 12 years old and a Moderna vaccine for people who are at least 18 years old.

If all goes well, pharmacies across the USA will start giving people the new vaccine right after Labor Day Weekend (that is, after Monday, September 5.) Yay!!
