Anti-Vaxxer rants on GMB

I watched this for a few seconds a couple of days back but had to turn it over to the Beeb - seems I wasn't the only one.

After a woman claimed she contracted mumps from a child who hadn’t been vaccinated against the virus, GMB hosts Ben Shephard and Kate Garraway were joined in the studio alongside Biba Tanya and Catherine Cooper who had opposing views about the MMR vaccine.

As Cooper shared her opinions on the importance of protecting children against the virus after her son contracted measles, Tanya expressed just how much she disagreed with the view when she began to raise her voice

How are anti-vaxxers a danger to the vaccinated children, if vaccines work?

Because they don't 100%.

Vaccines have a failure rate - low but they sometimes fail, so someone who thinks they have been vaccinated might not in fact be safe. People who have not been vaccinated by choice (or parents' choice) reduce the effectiveness of herd immunity.

Also of course, some people cannot be vaccinated for one reason or another - they are also put in danger.
