Vaccination and herd immunity

Summary of Vaccination and herd immunity
When the majority of a population is vaccinated against a certain disease, the entire community is resistant to attack by the disease, including those unvaccinated, due to herd immunity. Herd immunity only works when the disease is contained to a single host species, and transmission occurs directly from one member of the host species to the other.
