Paul A. Offit and Charlotte A. Moser answer questions about the
science and safety of modern vaccines. In straightforward prose,
they explain how vaccines work, how they are made, and how they are
tested. Most important, they separate the real risks of vaccines
from feared but unfounded risks.
Offit and Moser address parental fears that children may receive
too many vaccines too early, that the HPV vaccine may cause chronic
fatigue or other dangerous side effects, that additives and
preservatives in vaccines cause autism, and that vaccines might do
more harm than good. There couldn't be a better moment or more
pressing need for this book, which offers honesty-instead of
hype-in the quest to protect children's health.
