For herd immunity to be effective,in must infect or vaccinate at least 80 to 90% of population.Here more contagious the desease is the more stronger the herd immunity will be.However vaccination is the best and safe way to use herd immunity as a tool to contain a desease. Herd immunity is being discussed now a days as a way forward to check the spread of the Covid-19 desease.how much successfull its going to be,only time will tell. 1 Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp You must login to can add an answer.
