The vaccines should last a lot longer than this.ronnie42 wrote:Seems unlikely. Vaccines seem to only protect people for a limited amount of time and the mutations make it harder to protect against. I think this virus situation is going to be with us for a while. If E3 does start doing public events in person then I think it'll probably be limited to how many can enter and only as long as everyone has had vaccines recently. From what I can gather I hear the vaccines may last up to 6 months.HaloBungie343I wrote:E3 announced, I believe yesterday, the show will be digital one last time before returning to in-person next year. I guess this virus is finally coming to a close with the vaccines out. So, E3 2021 dates are June 12th to 15th, 2021.
There is a bit of a problem countries that refuse to lock down properly and/or aren't vaccinating... this increases the chances of mutations that may not be covered as well by the current vaccines.
We may end up with a situation where every year we get a booster vaccination that better covers new virulent strains - like the flu shot.
If the US can get it's vaccinations up to 70%+ by June next year there shouldn't be any reason to not hold events like E3 (especially if you have mandotory immunisation records for attendees).
Where I live we are starting to get back to normality with music and sporting events - except for when community cases pop up and lock downs come into effect.
