Let's Get to Herd Immunity
It’s a common question online: “What is herd immunity?” Here’s what it means:
- When more of us are vaccinated against COVID-19, the protection we have against infection at a certain point protects the entire community from infection.
- It’s estimated that 70-85% of individuals in a community need to be protected from COVID-19 to protect the entire community. Getting vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and your community.
We need to reach herd immunity to get past the pandemic and return to normal life. That’s what “There’s Unity In Immunity” is all about.
