We’re getting more and more questions about herd immunity–are we there yet?!
Your own nerdy girl Dr. Malia Jones published an essay on Slate.com this week that’s all about herd immunity, and we know you’ll want to check it out! Three points to take home:

3. The only way out of this is vaccines, and yes that means for kids, and yes that means globally.
