Outbreaks and Immunity

Travel and close community contact can reintroduce diseases previously lessened or declared eliminated. “Community Immunity” is achieved only when high percentages of a population are immunized. Without community immunity, outbreaks of deadly diseases continue to occur.

Why We Need to Keep Vaccinating

Community immunity (also known as herd immunity) protects people by lessening and eliminating disease outbreaks

Few vaccinated people

Quick disease spread

Many vaccinated people

Slow disease spread

Few vaccinated people = Quick disease spread

Many vaccinated people = Slow disease spread

How Alabama Compares with Community Immunity Thresholds (CIT)
