In both Agriculture and humans check out the results of Natural Immunity:

Natural immunity

Natural immunity occurs when you become immune to a specific disease after contracting it. This triggers your immune system to make antibodies against the germ causing the infection inside of you. Antibodies are like special bodyguards that only recognize certain germs.

If you contract it again, the antibodies that dealt with the germ before can attack it before it spreads and makes you ill. For example, if you had chickenpox as a child, you most likely won’t get it again, even if you’re around someone with it.

Natural immunity can help create herd immunity, but it doesn’t work as well as vaccinations. There are several reasons for this:

Everyone would have to contract the illness once to become immune.

Contracting an illness can have health risks, sometimes serious.

You may not know if you’ve contracted the illness or if you’re immune to it.
