Will COVID-19 be wiped out by vaccine-induced herd immunity?: RAZOR
Will the virus SARS-CoV-2 become endemic like the flu, or can it be eliminated with vaccine-induced herd immunity?
Herd immunity is when a large part of the population is immune to a specific disease. If enough people are resistant to the cause of a disease, such as a virus or bacteria, it has nowhere to go. While not every single individual may be immune, the group as a whole has protection.
Here, RAZOR examines the different potential scenarios for the global vaccine roll-out and what it means for the future of the pandemic.
