The theory of herd immunity is the basis for vaccine mandates, yet it has never been scientifically proven. An Austrian medical journalist, Bert Ehgartner recently stated that the vaccine uptake rate in Austria is approximately 35%, and fully vaccinated children are rare. There are some outbreaks of infectious disease, but in manageable numbers and there are few if any deaths. In the US, it is purported to be over 95%, yet we still have outbreaks. Austria’s infant mortality rate is significantly lower than the U.S. rate.
