Herd Immunity Debunked: Dispelling the Myth

Herd immunity, in theory, asserts that when a certain percentage of a population is immune to a disease, the rest of the population is protected from coming into contact with the disease. However, this does not guarantee that if those people DO come in contact with a disease they are somehow magically protected because someone else is vaccinated. In other words, if I am vaccinated for a disease, you (in theory) have a lower chance of coming into contact with that disease. However, considering the fact that every single outbreak contains vaccinated and non-vaccinated individuals, maybe herd immunity is a crock that needs to remain with the herd animals.

Why Herd Immunity Does not Work

If a vaccine produces any immunity at all, why on earth does it matter if anyone else is vaccinated? If vaccines produce “immunity” to the diseases for which they are given; it should not make a bit of difference who you are around or how many in the community are vaccinated. That’s like saying my bug spray won’t work unless you wear yours.

Furthermore, if I take antibiotics for an illness, it will not affect your immune system a bit.

True immunity is only granted through natural exposure to a disease. Artificial exposure through vaccination is not true immunity. Any questionable immunity gained through vaccination inevitably wanes over time.  Thus, the need for booster shots later.

We actually have no proof that vaccines even work because the Centers for Disease Control, (CDC) refuses to vaccinate individuals and subsequently expose them to a disease. They claim this is unethical. However, I’m sure they could find volunteers if they really wanted to.

Furthermore, look at the CDC’s history of unethical and immoral studies they’ve carried out incognito in the past. For example, the Tuskegee Trials, where African American men who were infected with syphilis, were denied treatment by the CDC. These men were never given informed consent and this experiment went on for 40 years. A $10 million out of court settlement was reached in 1974 with the government.

A more recent unethical, nefarious situation involves the latest CDC whistle-blower, Dr. William Thompson. Thompson revealed that a study had been watered down by the CDC. The study shows African American males are over 300% more likely to develop autism if given the Measles, Mumps, Rubella, (MMR) vaccine on schedule. In light of this information, it’s doubtful the CDC are worried about being “ethical”!

Are We Guinea Pigs for the Government?

In fact, the entire CDC vaccine schedule is in essence an experiment. The schedule as it exists has never been tested. Each time a new vaccine is added to the schedule, they are experimenting with our children. Furthermore, we have no informed consent when vaccines are mandated with risks up to and including DEATH. Doctors do not have to disclose the hundreds of side effects on vaccine package labels before they inject vaccines.

Vaccines have known and unknown risks, including DEATH! One side effect of every vaccine is getting the disease with which you were injected. If there is ever a time you should exercise your right to informed consent, it’s when something could make you sick or kill you!

Natural Immunity 

Outbreaks among fully vaccinated populations are commonplace. The CDC’s response is to mandate more boosters. When their vaccines don’t work, they first blame the non-vaccinated. Then it’s because people need “boosters”. Which is it CDC? Perhaps vaccines don’t provide much immunity after all.

In fact, the only way to achieve life-long immunity is by naturally acquiring the illness. Scientists and doctors used to believe vaccines afforded this type of immunity. However, this is obviously not the case. Doctors and scientists have been wrong before and are wrong again.

True immunity is achieved by the human body, not a syringe. In fact, contracting these illnesses in childhood could actually have a positive effect on your immune system. Could it be that Mother Nature knows best? Recent studies show acquiring measles in childhood helps prevent certain cancers later in life.

Herd Immunity Herd Immunity

The Herd Immunity Myth

Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a myth. This can be proven quite simply. Here’s why: Did you know they used to teach doctors in medical school that childhood vaccines lasted a lifetime? This was believed for over 70 years.

It was not until relatively recently that it was discovered that immunity from vaccination is not permanent. What this means is that at least 1/2 the population, have had no vaccine-induced immunity against any of these diseases for which they were vaccinated for very early in life. In essence, at least 50% or more of the population has been “unprotected” for decades.

Over half of us are NON-VACCINATED! We’ve been going to churches, schools, parks, and swimming pools for years with non-vaccinated people and yet somehow we are all still alive!

Now, if we listen to present-day CDC wisdom, we are all at risk of resurgent massive epidemics shall the vaccination rate fall below 95%. And yet, people have lived healthily for at least 40 years with at least half the population having no vaccine protection. That is, herd immunity has not existed in this country for many decades and no resurgent epidemics have occurred.

Vaccine-induced herd immunity is a lie used to frighten doctors, public-health officials, other medical personnel, and the public into accepting vaccinations. The following are just a few examples of cases where vaccines and herd immunity have clearly failed:

Herd Immunity Fails…Do Vaccines Even Work?


Study, after study, points to clusters of children who have gotten measles post -vaccination.

In 1986, an outbreak of measles occurred in Corpus Christi, TX and 99% of the children had been vaccinated MMR vaccine. MMR is a live virus and thus can shed the disease to both vaccinated and unvaccinated people.

In 1984, a high school in Waltham, Massachusetts had 27 cases of measles and 98% had documented proof of vaccination against the measles.

In 1989, in a high school in IL, there were 69 cases over a three week period, again 99.7% vaccinated. Also, it’s important to note, there were a surprisingly low number of measles cases in the unvaccinated population (probably because they had good, pure immune systems).

In 1987, CDC reported 2,440 cases of measles among vaccinated children. In 1989, there were 2,720 reported cases of measles, and 72.5% of them were vaccinated!!! That is 1,972 cases!!!!


“According to the Ohio Department of Health, half of the reported Ohio whooping cough cases (from 1987 to 1991) were in vaccinated persons.”

“According to the Journal of Pediatrics (1989), one study showed a 55% failure rate in the pertussis vaccine” (Walene James, Immunization: The Reality Behind the Myth).

The latest pertussis outbreak in CA (2015) had 11,000 cases. 8,500 of those were pediatric. Of the 7,500 of those with known vaccination status, 90% were vaccinated.

In 1986, in Kansas, 1,300 cases of pertussis were reported and 90% were vaccinated.

In 1971, in Casper, Wyoming, a rubella epidemic occurred and 91 of the 125 cases occurred in vaccinated children. (84%)

More recently, there have been several outbreaks on college campuses of Mumps, despite 100% of students being vaccinated. Why is the government mandating ineffective vaccines that are making kids sick?

Are Vaccines Causing New Mystery Illnesses?

Not only do we see case after case of vaccinated people getting diseases for which they are vaccinated against, we are now seeing new diseases develop in the vaccinated population. A thinking person might conclude that herd immunity and vaccination are neither one reliable in preventing outbreaks of disease.

In the fall of 2014, children were plagued with a mysterious “polio-like” illness called Enterovirus-D68. This virus was linked to 14 deaths. Though far more deadly and pervasive than the recent “Disneyland Measles Epidemic”, government officials didn’t promote general public discussion or media coverage of EV-D68. This “mysterious” illness was only occurring in vaccinated children.

The CDC has not been forthcoming about this virus being linked to 115 cases of paralysis, mostly in children. Not one documented case of an non-vaccinated child has been noted. Could that be why CDC and media have been so tight-lipped?

Herd Immunity or Herd Mentality? You decide!

The CDC does not like to spread news of their failures on mainstream media. However, every time there is even ONE person who contracts measles and they haven’t received all their vaccines, it is broadcast to the world in order to push and propagate more vaccines. Of course, the CDC’s solution to obvious failed vaccines is to invent “boosters”. When vaccination doesn’t work, they first blame it on “herd immunity” despite having 95% or more of the country’s children vaccinated.

The trend of the CDC lately has been to add more “boosters” to the schedule and blame outbreaks on the fact people don’t have their boosters. Never mind this type of thinking completely contradicts the whole premise behind vaccination. If the vaccine worked as purported, it shouldn’t matter if anyone else was vaccinated. If you are “immune”, it should not matter if you are around one non-vaccinated person, or a million non-vaccinated people.
