Have you ever wondered why some diseases eventually disappear from communities while others continue to spread like wildfire? The answer lies in the concept of Herd immunity, a practice that can save lives, prevent outbreaks, and ultimately lead to the eradication of diseases.
What exactly is it, and how does it work?
Herd immunity refers to the protection that a population gains from a disease when a large proportion of individuals become immune to it. When enough people in a community are immune to a particular disease, it becomes much harder for the disease to spread. The best way to achieve herd immunity? Vaccination.
You realise that getting vaccinated is not just about protecting yourself but protecting those around you as well.
We all have a role to play
The development of vaccines has been rapid, but distribution challenges have made achieving herd immunity challenging. Nevertheless, we must continue to strive for herd immunity to protect ourselves and our communities.
Herd immunity has the power to keep us all safe and healthy. By taking action to get vaccinated and promote vaccination within your community, you can help ensure a brighter, healthier future for us all.
