I frequently tramped eight or ten miles through the deepest snow to keep an appointment with a beech-tree, or a yellow birch, or an old acquaintance among the pines.

Here are some basics on herd immunity, and here is some more technical research if you’re interested in the details! 

If you’ve ever heard my rants about vaccination, you know it’s a major topic with me. Because hey, I’m one of these immunosuppressed people this comic talks about, so it’s a bit of a sensitive subject. (“Oh, I’m sorry, you don’t like getting vaccinated? I don’t like having three month long respiratory infections because you gave me the freaking flu, but I guess you don’t care about that”)

Essentially, Ellen and her wonderful character Katherine have just said it better than I ever could—and using Shaun of the Dead references, too!!! It’s all about herd immunity—getting vaccinated isn’t just about your own health, it’s about the health—and non-zombification—of the entire human race.

Awesome explanation.

Also vaccines are only like 90% effective, so people who get them aren’t all actually immune.

Also immunosuppressed due to steroids, also seriously pissed off at anyone who doesn’t vaccinate without a damn good medical reason.  And “I’m scared of autism” doesn’t fucking count as a medical reason because I’m autistic too and even the worst of autism is better than what happens when people don’t vaccinate.

You spend your time sitting in circles with your friends, pontificating to each other.
Forever competing for that one moment of self-aggrandizing glory in which you hog the intellectual spotlight,
Holding dominion over the entire shallow pointless conversation.
Oh, we’re not worthy!
When you walk by a group of quote-unquote normal people, you chuckle to yourself, patting yourself on the back as you scoff. 
It’s the same superiority complex shared by the high school jocks who made your life a living hell,  
And makes you a slave to the competitive capitalist dogma you spend every moment of your waking life bitching about
