Herd immunity

Curr Biol. 2021 Feb 22;31(4):R174-R177. doi: 10.1016/j.cub.2021.01.006. Epub 2021 Jan 12.ABSTRACTHerd immunity is an important yet often misunderstood concept in epidemiology. As immunity accumulates in a population - naturally during the course of an epidemic or through vaccination - the spread of an infectious disease is limited by the depletion of susceptible hosts. If a sufficient proportion of the population is immune - above the 'herd immunity threshold' - then transmission generally cannot be sustained. Maintaining herd immunity is therefore critical to long-term disease control.
