I’m wishing the Covid away
Wishing Covid away away
I don’t mask up or wash my hands
Wishful hoping, that’s my plan
l don’t give hygiene a mention
Don’t trust Fauci and his clan
I don’ believe in prevention
Herd immunity that’s my plan
Second verse? Same as the first!

Great parody of Herman’s Hermits’ one hit wonder. The lyric, though, should be the “herd mentality” malaproped by The Donald, not “herd immunity.”
The idea behind mass vaccination is to increase herd immunity. The more people who are vaccinated, the less likely the disease can spread to those who are too young or too old or too sick to get the vaccine, as well as the less likely the disease is to spread to those whose vaccine has wore off and needs redone.
The importance of vaccines to herd immunity is reference here by Penn Gillette:
