How Herd Immunity Works

All too often, the anti-vax pro-disease crowd will abuse terminology, as well as the basic concept behind the terminology.  This video does a great job of actually explaining what it is, as well as showing simulations (which you can run yourself).  Please spread this word like vaccines!

The simulation itself can be found at http://www.shanekillian.org/apps/herd.html.  Go ahead and run it and play with it.  It's amazing the things you can learn by playing with the variables.
