Here is a straightforward presentation of the facts surrounding the controversial topic of vaccines, a book that confused and worried parents can turn to for answers and reassurance. Most parents have questions about vaccines that doctors are too busy to answer, and too many parents, as a result, are not having their child vaccinated at all, thus putting them at risk.
This timely book answers such questions as:
- Aren't most of these diseases eliminated anyway?
- Should my child have the new chicken pox vaccine?
- Could my baby get a bad batch of the vaccine and end up getting infected?
New! In September 2000, Paul is launching a vaccine education page on the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia website. Check it out!
