What a relief this book was to me. Finally, an impartial view of vaccines and their benefits and side effects. I wish I would have had this on my bookshelf before my son was even born.
The Vaccine Book is an invaluable tool filled with facts on everything a parent should know before deciding on a vaccine. The book not only explains the most common vaccines given in the first 12 years of a child’s life, but it also delves into those often given for travel and in other special circumstances.The Vaccine Book is a compilation of valuable information in an easy-to-reference format. You can have your answers in just a few quick minutes of reading if you choose, or dive into some statistics, even learn how the vaccines are made. I’d suggest reading a few days ahead about the vaccines your child is about to receive, so if you have any questions, you know exactly what to ask. Take the book with you to the doctor visits. The more informed you are going in, the more easily your doctor will be able to address your concerns.
I finished The Vaccine Book feeling like the confusion had lifted. Dr. Sears wrote this book with the parents’ interests at heart, and he has no problem openly stating both negative and positive answers. Where there are no answers, he tells you straight out. This book never attempts to answer the question, “Should I vaccinate?” Sears simply gives you the information and allows you to make that decision without feeling judged either way. I highly recommend this book to all parents, and if you have any baby showers to attend soon, this is a great gift idea. I have a feeling you’ll be thanked over and over.To learn about lowering fevers associated with vaccines, read my post How to Calm a Fever After Vaccinations.
