I read your question and then the rest of the thread and didn't see where anyone answered you. Joe did a great job with the video but didn't go into detail explaining heard immunity and explaining just how contagious measles is.
First Measles is a highly contagious virus that lives in the nose and throat mucus of an infected person. It can spread to others through coughing and sneezing. Also, measles virus can live for up to two hours on a surface or in an airspace where the infected person coughed or sneezed. If other people breathe the contaminated air or touch the infected surface, then touch their eyes, noses, or mouths, they can become infected. Measles is so contagious that if one person has it, 90% of the people close to that person who are not immune will also become infected.
Infected people can spread measles to others from four days before to four days after the rash appears. An immune person who has touched an infected surface can carry the disease for up to 2 hours.
Some people are not eligible for the vaccines—such as infants, pregnant women, or immunocompromised individuals those people depend on herd immunity to protect them from the virus. Also, no vaccine is 100% effective, a small percentage of people are not protected after vaccination and for others the protection may wane over time. About 96% of the people immunized from measles have a life-long immunity to it.
So right off the bat 4 out of every 100 people that have been immunized depend on the other 96 that are to not spread the disease to them then you add the infants, pregnant women, or immunocompromised individuals they all depend on those who are immunized.
Here is one singular example how one contagious person not showing signs yet can spread the virus.
Imagine a person infected goes to the grocery store at some point coughs covering their mouth. At the checkout they punch in their pin number for a check card. That surface will be contagious for up to 2 hours and in that time every person who uses it has become an infected surface and if any of those people are unvaccinated they have a 90% chance of contracting the disease and spreading it even further. If any of those people have unvaccinated children that they come into contact within that 2-hour frame they have a 90% chance of infection.
If the rest of the people for the next 2 hours are immunized as well as those they come into contact with then the spread of the virus will be halted.
That is just one specific example I am sure you can imagine others or worse yet if they had coughed or sneezed at checkout without covering their mouth.

The problem is peoples immune systems are weak. Most eat processed foods, and do not get enough exercise. Thus the need for vaccines and other pharmaceuticals. Dr Russell Blaylock Neurosurgeon is strongly against vaccines and has never vaccinated his children. They eat healthy and juice regularly and NEVER have been sick. I will never allow a corporation to dictate what is injected into my body. For those who are pro vaccine, please go ahead, and reduce the surplus population. We are such a primitive species. Blindly following instead of being critically aware. You can call Dr Blaylock a bad parent, but be aware his IQ is over 160 so your primitive rebuttal will be irrelevant and insignificant.

Your biggest clue that they are jacking with us about the need for vaccines is them using the term "HERD" to describe all of us. nwo at its peak.
Good lord, you're insane

450 a year used to die from measles before the vax......out of a country of almost 200 million at the time (that is .000237%). the measles were almost eradicated before the vax was developed. The measles went down to zero even though everyone wasn't getting the vax.
if you want to get the vax....go right ahead....then you will be safe from all of us crazy anti-vaxxers......right?
No...no...I know "heard immunity"....even though heard immunity wasn't accomplished back in the 1960's and measles went to zero.
And why can women have the right to choose if they abort a baby or not because we have no right to tell her what to do with her body but I can't choose to have something injected into my body or not?......oh, right because me catching a non-killing virus like measles might also make you catch it even though you got your vaccine for it and abortion doesn't affect anyone but the baby.......got it.......
the vaccine gives people measles and the vaccine kills more people than contracting measles does......

interesting...but...you do know that if a pregnant lady gets the measles, it can harm the baby..this happened to my father, his mom got the measles when she was pregnant with him...then,.when he was in his twenties, he had to have MAJOR surgery on his heart, he had a valve that was mostly blocked.....caused when his mom had the measles

Learn to science.
Perhaps before telling people to "learn to science" you could teach yourself proper grammar. After that perhaps you could learn to think critically instead of acting as the mouthpiece of a corrupt state.
