Found this interesting.
Garth Brooks had a concert in Arrowhead Stadium, in Kansas City. 74,500 tickets sold.
There was vaccination station set up prior to the show. Getting vaxxed got you a chance at upgraded seating. It was an unrivaled success, adding 35
people to the vaccinated list.
Fun math time. Let's say 10% of sold tickets didn't show. Probably a high %, but I'm working to reduce the denominator of attendees to produce
the likely best success of the vaccination event. With no shows, that puts approx 67K butts in seats.
Going vaccination rate is 45%ish in the area. Let's give another leg up and call it 55%. So that gives us 45% or so of the 67K as potential peeps
to get vaccinated. So that's approx 30K we'll call jab eligible.
All that said, the likely highest possible success rate is 0.12% (35 shots given/30K eligible). Lower no show rate and lower % vaccinated prior to
show, of course, decrease the % due to increasing the denominator.
I'm not quite sure what to deduce from all of this. Are Garth Brooks fans a significant source of vaccine hesitancy? Or is it country music fans in
general? Or may it's the opposite...the % of vaccinated fans was so high, maybe 35 newly vaxxed people actually was a great success. So many
Just seemed an incredibly low % for so many potentially unvaxxed in the masses.
Anywho, thanks for entertaining the above info.
