solid science June 4 2013
By Ron Wycuff - Published on
Format: Paperback
Dr. Offit has succeeded in writing a very readable and informative book about vaccines. He is a highly-educated doctor, but has managed to discuss the science behind the development of vaccines, and still make it understandable. If you are looking for a knowledgeable, objective, and reasoned discussion of vaccines and their effects, this is it.

No BS just Evidence Based Science June 18 2013
By 81 Bubbles - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I love how this book breaks it down easily for the average layperson to understand. This book is "one sided" since one side resides in evidence based fact and the other side has been repeatedly disproved by study after study yet they continue to charm naive first time mothers. If you're interested in more fact based information on vaccines and your children here are some places to start:

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Vaccine Education Center(This site includes answers to top vaccine concerns as well as a look at each vaccine and the diseases it prevents)
CHOP videos:

Immunization Action Coalition (Also check out the "handouts" portion of this site for something to print out and give the AVs in your life!)

Vaccinate Your Baby
Every Child by Two

Autism Science Foundation (reliable, science-based information for parents of children with autism)

Parents of Kids with Infectious Diseases (video section)

Sounds of Pertussis

Shot by shot: stories of preventable diseases

For anyone looking for FACTUAL infromation on vaccines Nov. 21 2013
By Katrina Edmonds - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a wonderful resource for parents who want to know more about vaccines and the science supporting them. This book discusses both the risks and benefits of vaccination in a factual manner and sites the research along with links for further information. There is even a supplementary reading section. I have read several books about vaccines, and this is the best one so far . It addresses common areas of concerns for parents and nothing is sugar coated, it contains factual information and shares a few personal stories as well. Great resource!

This one, read this one! April 2 2011
By Kim Burlingham - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this and read it from cover to cover and this is definitely the book I am going to recommend to my patients' parents to read. It is the perfect antidote for the Sear's pseudoscience Vaccine book. Vaccines And You Child is scientifically sound, easy to read and trustworthy. An added benefit to getting the kindle edition is that web links take you to sites where you can hear the horrific whooping cough, get information from the CDC and many other pertinent links.
Of note, since published, there is an updated recommendation about the meningococcal meningitis vaccine(Menactra). The book says it is a single dose series, but it recently has been recommended that children get two doses, one at age 11 and a booster at age 16 (or 5 years after the first.). As always, check with your pediatrician for the latest and best information for your child.
