Featuring more than twenty experts from the fields of ethics, law, science, medicine, business, and history, Vaccine Epidemic urgently calls for reform. It is the essential handbook for the vaccination choice movement and required reading for all people contemplating vaccination for themselves and their children.
Nearly all Americans receive vaccines. The federal government’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) currently recommends 70 doses of sixteen different vaccines between birth and age eighteen, and all fifty states mandate between 30 and 45 doses of vaccines for admission to day care and school.
Public health officials state that vaccines are safe and effective, but the truth is far more complicated. Vaccination is a serious medical intervention that always carries the potential to injure and cause death as well as to prevent disease. Coercive vaccination policies deprive people of free and informed consent—the hallmark of ethical medicine. National polls show that Americans are increasingly concerned about vaccine safety and the right to make individual, informed choices together with their healthcare practitioners. Vaccine Epidemic focuses on the searing debate surrounding individual and parental vaccination choice in the United States.
Louise Kuo Habakus and Mary Holland edit and introduce a diverse array of interrelated topics concerning the explosive vaccine controversy, including:
- The human right to vaccination choice
- The ethics and constitutionality of vaccination mandates
- Personal narratives of parents, children, and soldiers who have suffered vaccine injury
- Vaccine safety science and evidence-based medicine
- Corrupting conflicts of interest in the national vaccine program
- What should parents do? A review of eight advice books on vaccines that span the gamut
Vaccine Epidemic builds the case that it is your right—not the government’s—to decide whether to vaccinate yourself or your children. Only you, with your healthcare practitioner, can make the appropriate risk-benefit trade-off, and only you can be fully accountable for your choice, as with any other medical intervention.
"As a member of Congress, I pushed hard to create a safer childhood vaccine program. This book raises some of the important issues that need to be discussed. This is an important topic and the book should play an important role."
--- Dave Weldon, M.D., practicing physician and former U.S. Congressman
"Vaccine Epidemic exposes the bitter truth about vaccination mandates. Free and informed consent is not only a human right, but also an indispensable market mechanism which ensures that a high demand exists only for superior, necessary, and well-priced products."
--- Marguerite Willner, former vice chair, Advisory Commission on Childhood Vaccine
"As a minister, advocate, and mother of a vaccine-injured child, I echo the startling questions which Habakus and Holland poignantly raise in this groundbreaking examination. A vaccine program that inflicts avoidable injury and death in its pursuit to safeguard the `Public Health' has gone tragically awry. The question is whether we as a society will continue to walk away from the damage . . . and the damaged . . ."
--- Reverend Lisa Sykes, United Methodist minister and author of Sacred Spark
"Vaccine Epidemic is a timely reminder that the same way Wall Street conspires with the government for its own benefit at the expense of the working and middle classes, the healthcare industry conspires with the government for the sake of its profits."
