Of course it’s absurd. So is your attempt to redefine actual words. Stop it. It makes you look ridiculous.

Do you seriously believe that stuff like environment, culture, and behavior have nothing to do herd immunity? Do you really believe the herd immunity thresholds for a refugee camp, a kibbutz, or a small town in Vermont are all going to be the same? The herd immunity requirements differ between populations even for the same disease. The percent vaccinations needed to confer herd immunity in Poughkeepsie will be different than in Mumbai.

It is kind of obvious if you bother to actually think about it.
