Appendix E (Cont.) – What About Herd Immunity?

375

But consider something else: There are reasonably high rates of primary and secondary vaccine failures, vaccine shedding (freshly vaccinated children spreading the virus for a few weeks after they get the vaccine – if anyone should stay home, it is kids who were recently vaccinated), waning vaccine immunity, and outbreaks occurring in highly vaccinated populations. And there are also vaccines that mitigate symptoms but do not prevent colonization and unwitting transmission. These are acknowledged by vaccine proponents and the CDC. Links below are for multiple studies.
