Does vaccination protect the herd in case of infectious diseases?
This is open for debate. We, for instance, dodge vaccination against seasonal influenza. This can lead to hilarious situations.
At some point, our GP’s system failed and we were called by mistake for the yearly flu jab.
When I asked the assistant ‘How come?’, she responded: “Oh, that’s right. You’re flu refusers”. And yes, that’s how it is, we dodge the flu.
