VAXBaby 37: Herd Immunity

Herd immunity. It’s a term that’s thrown around like a weaponized guilt trip. They’ll tell you, “Okay, you may have unvaccinated kids, but the only reason you’re able to safely do that is because everyone else is vaccinating theirs.”

Herd immunity is not what you’ve been told. I’m going to explain why, but just think about this for a minute: tetanus is not a contagious disease. You can’t “spread” it, and you can never develop immunity to it. But the vaccine is required for many jobs, schools, or summer camps—supposedly because of herd immunity!
