You can't pass tetanus on as far as I know - so it's an apples to oranges comparison. 🤪

Covid-19 is not going to  go away as proved in soaring infections in UK and Israel and countries where vaccination is rate is very high. Vaccinated people can still get infected and spread to other va

experts in the UK and US made this point weeks ago about herd immunity even though comparing it to tetanus is rather silly as has already been pointed out    The reason they are saying herd

GThis news is already know for a longer time... I wrote several weeks ago that only 100% vaccinated people can get herd immunity, but than it is not her immunity anymore especially for mthe Delta. So no news only copied news. and not 1 country is already 100% vaccinated.

Did he just wake up and Google this ?

 

OMG, so is he suggesting that Covid which is spread by the carrier isn't actually spread by the carrier. The opposite to how it's actually spreads ?

 

WOW..... that would mean a heck of a lot of people stepping onto rusty nails then.

 

The man's a genius, I need my coffee to early for this BS 1st thing in the morning, then I'm going for my Tetanus shot just to be sure, to be sure Paddy.

 

Herd immunity does not protect against all vaccine-preventable diseases. The best example of this is tetanus, which is caught from bacteria in the environment, not from other people who have the disease. No matter how many people around you are vaccinated against tetanus, it will not protect you from tetanus.

He said that, when the majority of people in a country have developed immunity, whether from vaccinations or after being infected with a disease, such as measles, the minority who have not been vaccinated or who have not been infected by the disease will be protected from the infection.

When we reach the minority... still a long way to go.

This headline is contradictory. In one breath, he says forget about herd immunity.... 

 

“Forget about herd immunity because it will not work with COVID-19.” 

 

In the next breath, he says....

 

"...when the majority of people in a country have developed immunity"......"the minority who have not been vaccinated or who have not been infected by the disease will be protected from the infection"

 

The link explains it a bit better, but his point still remains weak as water. This is not a good piece of journalism.

Not good journalism, that's normal and usually understood.
