The Vaccine Guide covers each disease and its vaccine, providing difficult-to-obtain facts about vaccine reactions. Also discussed are vaccine effectiveness, toxicity and adverse effects, legal requirements, alternatives, and the latest information on the threat of bioterrorism. New to this edition are topics of particular concern to adults, including smallpox and anthrax vaccines, flu shots, and new conditions linked to vaccine reactions.
"The Vaccine Guide is an excellent resource, providing the latest, most up-to-date, unbiased information for parents and physicians as they make decisions on safe immunization practices." —Mary N. Megson, M.D., F.A.A.P.
"Aside from diet and discipline, no other issue concerns parents more today about their children's health than the safe use of vaccines. The Vaccine Guide provides a clear, well-balanced, and thoroughly researched review of vaccine use. I strongly recommend it for parents and health care providers." —Robert Schiller, M.D.
