Summary, etc.:
" 'The Vaccination Debate' takes a rational approach to discussing the science of vaccines in the context of everyday life. As Spinelli and Karinch examine the schedule of vaccines from birth through adolescence, the authors shed new light on this timely and controversial issue, writing with a tone that a pediatrician would use with curious, concerned parents. Many parents and health care professionals believe vaccines to be one of the best public health practices ever instituted on a widespread basis. Yet the anti-vaccine movement has increasingly become one of hesitation and fear. Which is the right choice to make for your children? To vaccinate or not to vaccinate? Both grounded in scientific data and consumer-friendly material, 'The Vaccination Debate' serves as an essential reference guide for parents on the fence about vaccinating their kids, and for physicians trying to vaccinate their patients." - Publisher annotation.
