I will be attending the Book Launch this Friday in New York City for Vaccine Epidemic released this month and am hoping to see some of you there (click here for flyer for details and RSVP info). I am reading the book now and find it to be a vaccine conversation with a much needed, long overdue focus: that of vaccine safety and accountability.
Whether you agree with everything you read in this book or not, or even strongly disagree, it is an important read no matter where you stand on vaccines and vaccine policy. When you focus on vaccine safety and accountability you will see that there is common ground for all who care deeply about the health of children.
Those who believe in medical freedom including the right to vaccine choice will feel validated by the case presented. However, even readers who have strong beliefs about the benefits of vaccines, justifying mandatory vaccination, will find help for their cause in this book.
When vaccine policy includes accountability and active safety surveillance, the end result is a vaccine policy more likely to make sense and gain public trust. The long term survival of any vaccine policy is dependent on trust.
