Collectively sick. Or not? by Mirjam Leunissen - Dutch Data Design
This browser-based computer simulation lets the reader explore for themselves how various infectious diseases spread and what the effect of vaccination is. It demonstrates that the decision to (not) vaccinate your child is not just a choice for individual protection, but that it is also a choice to maintain collective protection (‘herd immunity’) for people that cannot be vaccinated. This production was made in response to the current debate around the necessity of vaccination, initiated by an increasing number of skeptics in The Netherlands and abroad.
