No vaccine is 100% effective. And some people *can’t* be vaccinated. But if everyone who can be is, then there’s enough immunity for everyone to be protected. Every person who can be vaccinated but chooses not to be damages the general immunity and endangers everyone.

I don’t usually write comments here, but am doing so in hopes that I can change the opinion of even one anti-vaccinator.
