Dr. Gregory Poland of the Mayo Clinic stated that even if you had the disease and survived it you still need to get the vaccine while on the "Len Berman and Michael Riedel" show.
"At some point someone who has had the the vaccine and survived it they will still be susceptible to the virus so having had the disease to not exclude you from needing the vaccine," said Dr. Poland.
Noam Laden, who is in for Len today, asked Dr. Poland how many Americans have to get the vaccine for the virus to go away.
"For us to reach that type of herd immunity we are going to have to have 70 to 80% of Amercians to take the vaccine," said Dr. Poland.
