Herd immunity is this concept that a certain percentage of the population needs to be vaccinated in order to eradicate a disease. Herd immunity does not exist with vaccines and here’s why, it only applies to those diseases that are naturally derived that confer lifetime immunity. Vaccine manufactures promise to introduce an antigen. They do not promise that the antigen will initiate an antibody response (e.g. MMR vaccine insert). Even if there is an antibody response the doesn’t mean one will have immunity and if they do, immunity is temporary (up to 4-10 years). Chicken pox vaccine gives immunity for “unknown duration” but no more than 10 years, MMR is unknown, Pertussis “protection” is a joke, Hep B is a maximum of 7.
My name is Tetyana Obukhanych. I hold a PhD in Immunology. I am writing this letter in the hope that it will correct several common misperceptions about vaccines in order to help you formulate a fair and balanced understanding that is supported by accepted vaccine theory and new scientific findings.
Do unvaccinated children pose a higher threat to the public than the vaccinated?
It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide. You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement. I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases. People who have not received the vaccines mentioned below pose no higher threat to the general public than those who have, implying that discrimination against non-immunized children in a public school setting may not be warranted.”
Herd Immunity doesn’t work. Many vaccines last 2-5 years at best. So unless their “95%” of the population is getting boosters every 2 years to keep up on immunity, herd immunity can’t work. Most people born before the measels vaccine was introduced have lifelong immunity! Because they acquired measels naturally, which equals lifelong immunity!
Herd immunity does NOT work when the adult population is not up to date on their vaccinations. Herd immunity doesn’t even apply to diseases that are non-communicable.
There is no “herd immunity” for pertussis, tetanus, nor diphtheria, ….
Right now, the burden of “herd immunity” falls on small children, but that is changing. Vaccine manufacturers see an untapped market in adult vaccines and are coming for you next. What will you do if your state, your employer, or your insurance company forces you to get a vaccine that you simply don’t want? It hasn’t happened to you yet, but if the right to refuse is eroded, it will happen to you sooner than you might think. Who then will you turn to? Your legislators who get campaign donations from pharmaceutical companies? The CDC that has former pharma executives sitting on the board? Who will you turn to if you ever want to say no? There will be no one.
The major flaw in the herd immunity theory is that almost all adults born before 1986 in the U.S. did not receive , Hep A, Hep B, Rotavirus, Varicella, Pneumococcal, Meningococcal, or Hib vaccines. Adults over the age of 30 make up about 65% of the population. Almost all adults are unvaccinated for many of the diseases children are vaccinated for, yet, adults are not experiencing epidemics of these diseases, nor are they spreading them to their children. With 65% of the population unvaccinated for 7 diseases, how can there ever be vaccine derived herd immunity as it has been defined by the CDC?
