Nah at this point those people are just moving the goal posts again and again. 200,000,000 shots have been given in the USA. what do they need 400,000,000?
take a look at the news this morning, or more reports coming out of people who are fully vaccinated now testing positive. As more of these scenarios play out, its only going to keep hesitation. Government needs to come out and say if you are 100% vaccinated, you can live your life like its 2019. Then, I think you'd see an immediate jump.
I don't know why media is making such a big deal about fully vaccinated people can still get infected. Firstly, it's rare, secondly, effectiveness is never 100% and there will always be breakthrough cases (this applies to all vaccines, not just COVID ones), third, it's possible you got infected because your shots hadn't fully 100% developed yet (remember that it takes time, taking a shot and being safe isn't instant), and fourth, even if you do get infected (already an unlikely scenario), the chances of you getting severely sick or even dying is even lower. Just remember how statistics work: millions have been vaccinated, and the breakthrough cases number in the hundreds at most. That's still pretty damn successful. I mean, flu vaccine breakthroughs happen all the time but you don't see media being all over them. Sounds to me that all this media attention is coming from people who don't get how vaccines work in the first place.
