That’s where herd immunity comes in. With a high % of the population vaccinated, things like measles became harder to spread. If people stop getting vaccinated, it becomes a problem. We’re seeing more measles outbreaks now.
Good to know. Probably another Wuhan lab leak since the Chinese lab could do the gain of function research cheaper than the NIH so safety protocols be damned
I don’t know how much people are going to want to get vaccinated though. Isn’t herd immunity impossible for the flu or common cold but possible for the measles virus. I do support a vaccine mandate for measles but not for chicken pox or German measles or the Omnicron COVID as the death rate is so much lower
I do think a vaccine mandate with measles is far more appropriate due to its lethality at younger ages and level of transmissibility then COVID
I got the jab because I felt my risk of getting the original virus outweighed substantially the risk of the vaccine. But with omnicron, I just don’t feel it’s worth even the time to get the vaccine
