Basic Category: Nonfiction
Basic Summary: This well-written book outlines well all of the reasons parents should give their babies vaccines (and addresses most arguments against.) It includes an extensive reference bibliography.
What I Remember About the Book: I was really nervous about my son following the standard vaccination schedule after reading a different book about vaccines four years ago (one that took quite a different stance.) However, he was fine, and I am so happy now that we did. I remember that this book actually gave me the assurance that we made the right decision.
What I Took Away From the Book: Get the vaccines . . . and that I should make sure my vaccinations are up to date!
