The US has given some 338 million vaccine doses so far, with 68% of the over 18 population now with at least one dose, 59% fully vaccinated. Current average doses per day is approximately 500,000 per day, continuing a downward trend since April 2021’s peak of over 4 million. The economy is rebounding and shows continuing recovery from the depths of 2020’s pandemic and oil shock. Inflation is now a concern as renewed demand meets supply and pandemic-related logistics shortages drive up prices. We are of the belief that the inflation spike is temporary.
