Overview

With the spate of publicity surrounding the possible health risks posed by childhood immunization, parents are no longer simply following doctor's orders and automatically having their children vaccinated. Instead, they are asking questions. The problem is the search for answers only leads parents to conflicting, one-sided information: doctors claim that parents are endangering their child's life if they refuse shots, while radical vaccine opponents claim parents are endangering their child's life if they accept shots. With THE VACCINE BOOK, parents finally have one, fair, impartial, fact-based resource they can turn to for answers. Each chapter is devoted to a disease/vaccine pair and offer a comprehensive discussion of what the disease is, how common or rare it is, how serious or harmless it is, the ingredients of the vaccine, and any possible side effects from the vaccine. Ultimately, parents will have to make their own informed decisions as Dr. Bob Sears is neither pro-vaccine nor anti-vaccine. But THE VACCINE BOOK will provide exactly the information parents want and need as they make their way through the vaccination maze.

    EXCELLENT!!!

    This book is so great. It is so informative and really helps you understand vaccines and the diseases they prevent, how they are made, what ingredients are controversial and why, reactions your baby may have, what questions to ask your doctor, and more. I only wish I read it before I had my baby, as I would have done things differently from the start. I have a lot of respect for the Sears family of doctors and am so glad I got this book. I will be doing things differently with this baby going forward and if I should have another baby, I will be doing things differently from the start. I highly recommend this book.

    This book is an absolute must for any parent. This book was recommended to me by my doctor when I had concerns over the number of vaccinations that my baby would receive. That was almost 5 years ago. I have purchased the latest edition for our newest addition to the family. We have been and will continue to follow the alterante schedule offered by Dr Sears. This book is both informative and non biased. It answered the questions that I had and offered an alternative schedule to ease my concerns. I have recommended this book to all of my friends who also have had concerns and questions about vaccinations.
