Book Description :

Includes a bonus chapter on vaccines in development for COVID-19!Few things are more powerful than the bond and love between a parent and a child. Parents make significant sacrifices to protect, provide, and care for their precious children. The majority of parents and health professionals sincerely believe that all vaccines are safe, and no credible research exists showing vaccines cause harm. While public health officials consider vaccines safe and effective for children, parents and informed health professionals are increasingly concerned about vaccine safety and the right to make individualized, informed choices. Loud voices from both sides of the debate and a massive amount of information make a parent's choice to vaccinate or not incredibly difficult. The Vaccine Book Parents Deserve serves as an empowering and reliable fact-based resource for parents to make informed choices concerning vaccinations. The years of accepting all medical interventions without question ended with the modern information age. Publicly available information and research reveals that several aspects of vaccine production and the ingredients they contain have the potential to cause harm in some individuals. This book explores vaccines in detail, including their controversial ingredients, the infections they are designed to prevent, how they are manufactured, and adverse reactions reported by vaccine manufacturers, parents, health professionals, and peer-reviewed scientific studies. Better informed and armed with an advanced understanding of vaccine risks and benefits, you are equipped to intelligently discuss your concerns and decision with your primary healthcare provider.

The Vaccine Handbook has a simple purpose- to draw together authoritative information about vaccines into a simple and concise resource that can be used in the office, clinic, and hospital. Not an encyclopedia or scientific textbook, The Vaccine Handbook gives practical advice and provides enough background for the practitioner to understand the recommendations and explain them to his or her patients. For each vaccine, the authors discuss the disease and its epidemiology, the vaccine’s efficacy and safety, and the practical questions most frequently asked about the vaccine’s use. The authors also discuss problems such as allergies, breastfeeding, dosing intervals and missed vaccines, and immunocompromised individuals. This handbook is also available electronically for handheld computers. See Media listing for details.

Book Description :

Antivaxxers are crazy. That is the perception we all gain from the media, the internet, celebrities, and beyond, writes Bernice Hausman in Anti/Vax, but we need to open our eyes and ears so that we can all have a better conversation about vaccine skepticism and its implications. Hausman argues that the heated debate about vaccinations and whether to get them or not is most often fueled by accusations and vilifications rather than careful attention to the real concerns of many Americans. She wants to set the record straight about vaccine skepticism and show how the issues and ideas that motivate it—like suspicion of pharmaceutical companies or the belief that some illness is necessary to good health—are commonplace in our society. Through Anti/Vax, Hausman wants to engage public health officials, the media, and each of us in a public dialogue about the relation of individual bodily autonomy to the state's responsibility to safeguard citizens' health. We need to know more about the position of each side in this important stand-off so that public decisions are made through understanding rather than stereotyped perceptions of scientifically illiterate antivaxxers or faceless bureaucrats. Hausman reveals that vaccine skepticism is, in part, a critique of medicalization and a warning about the dangers of modern medicine rather than a glib and gullible reaction to scaremongering and misunderstanding.

Book Description :

Since 1990, the number of mandated vaccines has increased dramatically. Today, a fully vaccinated child will have received nearly three dozen vaccinations between birth and age six. Along with the increase in number has come a growing wave of concern among parents about the unintended side effects of vaccines. In Vaccine, Mark A. Largent explains the history of the debate and identifies issues that parents, pediatricians, politicians, and public health officials must address. Nearly 40% of American parents report that they delay or refuse a recommended vaccine for their children. Despite assurances from every mainstream scientific and medical institution, parents continue to be haunted by the question of whether vaccines cause autism. In response, health officials herald vaccines as both safe and vital to the public's health and put programs and regulations in place to encourage parents to follow the recommended vaccine schedule. For Largent, the vaccine-autism debate obscures a constellation of concerns held by many parents, including anxiety about the number of vaccines required (including some for diseases that children are unlikely ever to encounter), unhappiness about the rigorous schedule of vaccines during well-baby visits, and fear of potential side effects, some of them serious and even life-threatening. This book disentangles competing claims, opens the controversy for critical reflection, and provides recommendations for moving forward.

Vaccinology, the concept of a science ranging from the study of immunology to the development and distribution of vaccines, was a word invented by Jonas Salk. This book covers the history of the methodological progress in vaccine development and to the social and ethical issues raised by vaccination. Chapters include "Jenner and the Vaccination against Smallpox," "Viral Vaccines," and "Ethical and Social Aspects of vaccines." Contributing authors include pioneers in the field, such as Samuel L. Katz and Hilary Koprowski. This history of vaccines is relatively short and many of its protagonists are still alive. This book was written by some of the chief actors in the drama whose subject matter is the conquest of epidemic disease.

Book Description :

Vaccinophobia and Vaccine Controversies of the 21st Century Archana Chatterjee, editor Once hailed as a medical miracle, vaccination has come under attack from multiple fronts, including occasionally from within medicine. And while the rates of adverse reactions remain low, suggestions that vaccines can cause serious illness (and even death) are inspiring parents to refuse routine immunizations for their children--ironically, exposing them and others to potentially serious illness. Vaccinophobia and Vaccine Controversies of the 21st Century explains clearly how this state of affairs came into being, why it persists, and how healthcare professionals can best respond. Current findings review answers to bedrock questions about known adverse events, what vaccine additives are used for, and real and perceived risks involved in immunization. Perspectives representing pediatricians, family practitioners, nurses, parents, pharmacy professionals, the CDC, and the public health community help the reader sort out legitimate from irrational concerns. In-depth analyses discuss the possibility of links with asthma, cancer, Guillain-Barre syndrome, SIDS, and, of course, autism. Included in the coverage: Communicating vaccine risks and benefits The vaccine misinformation landscape in family medicine Perceived risks from live viral vaccines The media's role in vaccine misinformation Autoimmunity, allergies, asthma, and a relationship to vaccines Vaccines and autism: the controversy that won't go away The conundrums described here are pertinent to practitioners in pediatrics, family medicine, primary care, and nursing to help families with informed decision making. In addition, Vaccinophobia and Vaccine Controversies of the 21st Century should be read by trainees and researchers in child development and maternal and child health as the book's issues will have an impact on future generations of children and their families.

Book Description :

An accessible and reassuring guide to childhood health and immunity from a pediatrician who’s both knowledgeable about the latest scientific research and respectful of a family’s risk factors, health history, and concerns In The Vaccine-Friendly Plan, Paul Thomas, M.D., presents his proven approach to building immunity: a new protocol that limits a child’s exposure to aluminum, mercury, and other neurotoxins while building overall good health. Based on the results from his pediatric practice of more than eleven thousand children, as well as data from other credible and scientifically minded medical doctors, Dr. Paul’s vaccine-friendly protocol gives readers • recommendations for a healthy pregnancy and childbirth • vital information about what to expect at every well child visit from birth through adolescence • a slower, evidence-based vaccine schedule that calls for only one aluminum-containing shot at a time • important questions to ask about your child’s first few weeks, first years, and beyond • advice about how to talk to health care providers when you have concerns • the risks associated with opting out of vaccinations • a practical approach to common illnesses throughout the school years • simple tips and tricks for healthy eating and toxin-free living at any age The Vaccine-Friendly Plan presents a new standard for pediatric care, giving parents peace of mind in raising happy, healthy children. Praise for The Vaccine-Friendly Plan “Finally, a book about vaccines that respects parents! If you choose only one book to read on the topic, read The Vaccine-Friendly Plan. This impeccably researched, well-balanced book puts you in the driver’s seat and empowers you to make conscientious vaccine decisions for your family.”—Peggy O’Mara, editor and publisher, Mothering Magazine “Sure to appeal to readers of all kinds as a friendly, no-nonsense book that cuts through the rhetoric surrounding vaccines. It offers validation to those who avoid some or all, while offering those who do want to vaccinate help on how to do so safely. This is a great book for anyone with children in their lives.”—Natural Mother “A valuable, science-supported guide to optimizing your child’s health while you navigate through complex choices in a toxic, challenging world.”—Martha Herbert, M.D., Ph.D., Harvard Medical School “An impressively researched guide, this important book is essential reading for parents. With clear and practical advice for shielding children from harmful toxins, it will compel us all to think differently about how to protect health.”—Jay Gordon, M.D., FAAP “Rather than a one-size-fits-all vaccine strategy, the authors suggest thoughtful, individualized decisions based on research and collaboration between parents and clinicians—a plan to optimize a child’s immune system and minimize any risks.”—Elizabeth Mumper, M.D., founder and CEO, The Rimland Center for Integrative Pediatrics “This well-written and thought-provoking book will encourage parents to think through decisions—such as food choices and the timing of vaccines—that affect the well-being of their children. In a world where children’s immune systems are increasingly challenged, this is a timely addition to the literature.”—Harriet Lerner, Ph.D., bestselling author of The Dance of Anger and The Mother Dance

Book Description :

Mandatory shots or freedom to choose? Mandatory vaccination is sweeping across North America, Europe, and Australia. Parental rights to informed consent before medical intervention of children is being revoked. Pediatricians assure us: adverse vaccine reactions are rare. 1. The Association of American Physicians and Surgeons (AAPS) disputes this assurance. "The CDC admits that the reported number of adverse effects of vaccines is probably only 10% of actual adverse effects." - Fact Sheet on Mandatory Vaccinations, April 9/2009 2. After examining many vaccine studies the U.S. Supreme Court ruled: "Vaccines are unavoidably unsafe and there shall be no more lawsuits against any vaccine company." - Bruesewitz v. Wyeth 2011 3. AAPS doesn't favor vaccine mandates. As stated in their Fact Sheet they "attempted to halt government or school districts from blanket vaccine mandates that violate parental Informed Consent." Studies by leading healthcare scientists: 4. Charts and graphs on increasing vaccines rank the U.S. 34th for infant mortality among first world nations. 5. Scientific studies in the U.S, Germany, Sweden, and New Zealand comparing vaccinated and unvaccinated children show unvaccinated kids to be healthier than their vaccinated peers. 6. The book, Critical Vaccine Studies, lists 400 case studies showing vaccinated kids have more health problems later in life. Vaccine Ingredients: 7. The MMR vaccine has DNA material from chicken and cow embryos. 8. MMR also has human DNA from aborted fetuses, listed as WI-38 by the CDC. 9. Many vaccines contain mercury, aluminum, and formaldehyde. How many shots is too many? Before 1970, American kids were fully vaccinated with 2 shots. By 1986, it was 10 shots. Today, kids have to get 24 shots before the age of two. That's a shot/month of foreign DNA injected into a baby's developing body. It's unprecedented in human history. The Internet has transformed the landscape. Pro-vax parents became anti-vax when their kids suffered harmful side-effects. The anti-vax movement began when outraged parents became warriors to protect children injured by adverse vaccine reactions. Today you can chat online with mothers of vaccine-injured kids, read books about toddlers harmed by vaccines, and watch films documenting how autism appears after vaccination, not before. Vaccines on Trial examines the mandatory vaccine issue: Whether it's more noble to suffer our fate, allow our children to be vaccinated against our will, and accept that there may be adverse reactions; or to stand strong, demand informed consent, stop forced vaccines for youngsters, and empower parents to make informed decisions to keep kids safe because every child's genetic makeup is unique. Do benefits outweigh risks? Benefits don't harm children. So this book documents the vaccine risks they will face. Informed consent recognizes the democratic/parental right to avoid risky/unwanted medical intervention on our kids. Parents have a legal right to choose. They're not against vaccines, they're against the use of force. Mandatory vaccines is a far more complex issue than simple pro-vax and anti-vax labels that some people portray with petty black-and-white rhetoric. This book examines vaccines from the medical perspective, legal perspective, scientific perspective, business perspective. ethical perspective, historical perspective, parent's perspective, and the child's perspective. Informed people don't cause strife between families with opposite views on vaccines. Look at the scientific studies referenced here to decide the issues for yourself. Every insight, insider tip, and jewel of wisdom is organized into a comprehensive guide. Learn lessons that may save years of heartbreak, and thousands on hospital bills.
