Vaccinate (Paperback)

£14.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Vaccines are a debate, whether we want them to be or not, and we're living in the age of misinformation, digital noise and social media conspiracies. VACCINATE demystifies the strange and intricate world of vaccines: it explains what a vaccine is, how they work, how they are developed and what happens when they meet our bodies.







David Miles has worked in immunology - as a scientist and latterly as a communicator - for two decades. Taking his expert understanding of the field and the questions he is asked by ordinary people, VACCINATE combines a field guide to the vaccines we currently receive with the historical background to their development, along with thrilling storytelling and comprehensive, reassuring debunking of the most common vaccination myths. Overall the book arms the reader with the essential knowledge they need to make an informed choice about their child's health - the only proper choice: to vaccinate them.

David Miles has two decades of experience as a scientist and educator in the field of infectious disease immunology. He began his scientific career as a zoologist before moving to Gambia to study the infant immune response to vaccines against infectious diseases, and spent the ten years leading research projects there, in Malawi and in South Africa. David's research career was ended by a lymphoma, the treatment for which wiped out his immune system and left him more vulnerable to infection than a newborn baby. He moved into education as a tutor on the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine's distance learning MSc in infectious diseases.
