Om boka

Providing accurate, accessible information on vaccines and the controversies that surround them, this book outlines the history of vaccine regulation and interactions between vaccines and the immune system, and thoughtfully considers each vaccine debate.

A part of Greenwood's Health and Medical Issues Today series, The Vaccine Debate provides a straightforward introduction to the interaction between vaccines and the immune system.



The book documents the rise of the anti-vaccination movement, provides reasons for its prominence today, and explains the effects of vaccine refusal on public health. It also addresses concerns about the role of government in regulating vaccine production and administration, along with questions about vaccine safety.



Additionally, a majority of the book examines in detail seven major vaccine controversies and mainstream medical positions on them. These controversies are given individual attention, with questions at the end of each to encourage critical thinking about such topics as the effectiveness of vaccines in protecting public health and whether vaccinations should be mandatory for public school attendance.









Explains in depth the uses, dosage, adverse events, contraindications, and limitations of every vaccine



Traces the rise of vaccine resistance from the 1800s to the present



Considers the role of the government in vaccination requirements



Discusses the debate about whether vaccines cause neuropsychological disorders such as autism spectrum disorder and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder



Examines the appropriateness of the current recommended childhood vaccines
