Not everyone can be vaccinated, for one reason or another. Think of people as cottages with different types of roofs. If you do not get vaccinated, you have a thatched roof. The more people who get slate roofs, the less chance there is of fire spreading from one cottage to another. When 94% of the village has slate roofs, the people who cannot afford anything but thatching will stand a better chance of not catching fire. If the fire does spread, even the cottages with slate roofs can become endangered. Does that help?

Correlation doesn't mean causation, indeed, but this little tactic of yours is ridiculous.
Comparing to random data sets is just intellectually dishonest.

Im guessing the same people paroting the measles deadly outbreak where scared because of ebola was going to kill millions of americans. Yea for more un educated replies from the doom porn fans of ats.
It's ridiculous, yet you agree with me?
I don't actually believe Chinese energy causes autism.
Can't believe I have to explain this...
If it spreads because of people that are unvaccinated the only people that would be endangered(in the vaccinated group) are the 5% in whom the vaccine was ineffective. You make it sound like everyone is suddenly at risk.
How will you enforce that? Send armed SWAT to the homes of people who don't vaccinate their children?
What happens between a patient and their doctor is none of the Government's business. The decision is up to the parents. That is all people like Rand Paul are saying.
I get vaccinated as does my wife who works with kids, but growing up I had an immuno-deficiency (hypogammaglobulinemea) and I couldn't get vaccinated for everything until I was older. Point being every individual is different and we have to keep in mind that the "herd immunity" logic is a dangerous logic that can be applied elsewhere for more nefarious reasons.
