SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- The highly-contagious Delta variant is pushing back the state's timeline to reach herd immunity, according to doctors at UCSF.
"I think it's going to get worse before it gets better," said UCSF Epidemiologist Dr. George Rutherford.
Dr. Bob Wachter, the chair of UCSF's Department of Medicine, tweeted out Tuesday the "#Delta variant has changed what it'll take to reach herd immunity" - adding we need more vaccinations and mask-wearing.
Rutherford predicts the state won't reach herd immunity for at least several months as case rates and hospitalizations are climbing rapidly across California.
"I'm guessing we have to be in the mid-80th percentile and that's not of people eligible for the vaccine, that's everybody, including children," he said.
According to ABC7's vaccine tracker, 53 percent of the state's total population is fully vaccinated.
San Francisco County is at 69 percent fully vaccinated - one of the highest rates in the country. Yet, COVID cases are climbing at a pace health officials haven't seen since the onset of the city's last surge.

Likely the scapegoat for a failed, large-scale vax experiment.
These stories desperately trying to extend the fear and distract from what a train wreck the illegitimate “Biden Administration” is are becoming completely laughable. I mean, even more than usual.
Get the kcuF out of here
Just more nonsense
Get all the vax-n-boosters ya want. Even when herd immunity is reached, they’ll just say you haven’t.
California Timeline to Reach Herd Immunity delayed for another year due to Covid Variant Ωmega 2 Bravo 4 and the fact that we haven't been able to track down and forcibly inject the remaining three suspected California residents yet.
Lockdown extended for one more year.
If you encounter any of the remaining 3 anti-vaccers and turn them in, you will receive a bonus ration of 15 grams of Gates Labs 'meat' upon their capture.
Continue the flogging of the plebes until morale improves!
Herd immunity is theoretical. It may not be possible with this virus. Variants will continue to hit us every year. But hopefully we will be able to contain it to like 40,000 annual deaths rather than 600,000 last year.
If adults are vaccinated at 90% why is there a need for children to be vaccinated? I can’t remember which school was in a study, a recent article, but the covid positive children were infected by their parents not the other way around. NO infected parents, no infected children. Focus on the immunocompromised and genetically at risk.
Teachers, leave those kids alone.
That sounds half a** backwards. Spreading fast means more people are adding to herd immunity at an increased rate and we should reach herd immunity sooner...not later.
The worst time to vaccinate is during
the “pandemic”. A virus will have a
natural tendency to mutate to try and
survive. The Delta variant was born
due to vaccinations. Of course, this
is just my humble opinion.
Yet another story asserting only vaccinated numbers count on getting to herd immunity, which is complete BS.
“The only factors that could help speed up that extended timeline to reach herd immunity stems around how quickly the state can increase the pace of vaccinations of 13 to 17-year-olds. Not to mention, the added boost that will come after the shot is authorized for five to 11-year-olds.”
Pray for our society

Please tell me why none of these vaccines have been approved.
Oceana has always been two weeks away from flattening the Eastasia curve.
California hit herd immunity years ago. The liberal cancer quickly spread and is spreading quickly throughout America.
The only cure is to irradiate those infected to prevent further spread.
The good news is if they go back into lock down we’ll know where they are and they can’t fight back due to social distancing and they get winded easy due to mask wearing.
Maybe if Immunity Passports are offered to positive tested survivors of CoVID, the base source of herd immunity, you’ll get participation. You could also allow Immunity Passport to participants of the experimental genetic treatment, aka the ‘jab’, denoting ... or not. An Immunity Passport is much more valuable than a ‘Vaccine’ passport.
