That's not the way to look at it.

Assuming that the vaccine prevents 95% of all infections, the death rate should drop to 5% of the current rate as well. If the current death rate in the US is 3,000/day, that would be expected to drop to 150/day.

All this assumes that the vaccine prevents disease, but not transmission. If the vaccine also prevents transmission, the death rate should drop even lower - the virus has no legs or wings, and can only be passed from one person to another.
Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four. If that is granted, all else follows.
