Vaccine derived herd immunity has not persisted in the United States for at least 40 years, and we have not seen a resurgent of massive epidemics. Vaccine induced herd immunity is used by public-health officials and providers to frighten those to adhere to a vaccine policy that is not even grounded in the belief system they propagate. This proves that there is no justification in forced vaccination. In a recent outbreak the issue of measles spreading to adults with no immunity is discussed. The populations that they presume is the least immune to measles are those born between 1970 and 1985 (Frketich, 2013). This is blamed on the “youngish adults” not having had the natural infection and not being vaccine compliant. So here again we find the level of presumed “herd immunity” well below the needed rate to prevent massive disease outbreaks and yet the disease is relatively non-existent.
CDC Vaccine Recommendations Showing Extensive Booster Requirements To Enable "Herd Immunity"
Be My Guest
The original definition of herd immunity applied to the protective effect that occurred when a population contracted and recovered naturally from infections. Natural immunity lasts a lifetime whereas vaccine induced immunity does not.
Short term and highly inferior vaccine induced immunity in a highly vaccinated population cannot in any way be compared with natural immunity acquired by the same group of people.
The herd immunity myth as it is applied to vaccine induced immunity took hold decades ago when vaccination proponents argued that vaccines provided lifelong immunity in the same way as natural immunity.
When this was shown not to be true, booster shots were introduced to keep vaccine immunity from “wearing off”.
To the dismay of vaccination authorities, outbreaks still occur in groups of children who have been fully vaccinated and receiving booster shots. Hence, the convenient blame game and finger pointing that is now occurring with unvaccinated children said to be the “cause” of such outbreaks.
