While experts don’t yet know what percentage of people would need to get vaccinated to achieve herd immunity, vaccination is a safer way to build protection than getting sick with COVID-19.

Herd immunity makes it hard for the disease to spread from person to person, and it even protects those who cannot be vaccinated, such as newborns.
