Dr Tetyana Obukhanych, PhD, explains the difference between immunity acquired naturally and via vaccination. Is acquired immunity (vaccination) the same as natural immunity? She also explains the myth of herd immunity. I urge you to make time to watch this video. The links to the references mentioned in this video is listed below. Dr. Obukhanych is the author of “Vaccine Illusion“.
