I saw you made a post, prepared for the fail, and you didn't disappoint!
Sure, it's mathematically POSSIBLE for an infant to contract whooping cough if 100% of all other vaccination candidates have been fully vaccinated. However, the risk in that scenario is astronomically minute compared to the risk in a scenario where only 80% (arbitrary number, pick anything you like below 100% and the odds increase exponentially) are vaccinated.
You've made a bold claim regarding herd immunity and have been invited to share any science to back it up. Until you can provide this, we can only assume you're simply promoting your own opinions as fact.
What the FUCK are you talking about? You are arguing my points and then telling me im wrong?
HERD IMMUNITY is bullshit that ani-vaccination whackos spout as the reason why their kid should be safe if they dont vaccinate them, because of the immunity of the rest of the herd.
"Absolutely it decreases the odds a random individual will encounter a communicable infection of a particular disease.
What I am saying is that Herd immunity does not protect the indivual who is NOT vaccinated, nor will it ever eliminate the resevoir of disease. You can vaccinate people for thousands of years. Then stop vaccinating people, and the disease will absolutely return.
Amused is the moron who said these kids wouldnt have died if we achieved herd immunity. its a fallacy.
