    One thought on “Vaccines and Your Child: Separating Fact from Fiction”

    1. Hate to be the voice of dissent, but I just did not care for this book much. I was really hoping for some facts and figures to help me make decisions about vaccinating my child, but instead, I got vague reassurances with out-of-context numbers. I really felt like the author was "talking down" to the reader and making assumptions that I couldn't think for myself. It was not all bad, though.

    2. A well-presented resource on how vaccines work, how they're made, why they're safe, and how effective they are.

This book is a model for presenting health information to a popular, adult audience.
