Will COVID-19 ever go away?

Experts say even your “great-great-great-grandchildren” will need to be immunized against COVID-19.

COVID-19 vaccination

Some suggest that Coronavirus will always be around in some capacity.


Lingering symptoms may be long COVID

Vaccination far into the future

Dr. Gregory Poland, of the Mayo Clinic works with immunogenetics of vaccine response. He suggests that COVID-19 may never go away because it continues to evolve. Coronavirus is different than other diseases because new variants continue to emerge. Read more about this here.

Poland said, “we are not yet at any stage where we could predict endemicity.” He also states that COVID-19 will not be eradicated.

Coronavirus has expanded its infection. Poland has evidence that even  white-tailed deer in the US have been infected with SARS-CoV-2.

It is his prediction that your great-great-great-grandchildren will still need to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

Although this sounds far off, he makes the point that the flu vaccine contains a strain of influenza from the 1918 pandemic.
