Book Summary:

A history of the anti-vaccination movement, from its nineteenth-century antecedents to today's anti-vax activism, offering strategies for refuting its claims. Vaccines are a documented success story, one of the most successful public health interventions in history. Yet there is a vocal anti-vaccination movement, featuring celebrity activists (including Kennedy scion Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and actress Jenny McCarthy) and the propagation of anti-vax claims through books, documentaries, and social media. In Anti-Vaxxers, Jonathan Berman explores the phenomenon of the anti-vaccination movement, recounting its history from its nineteenth-century antecedents to today's activism, examining its claims, and suggesting a strategy for countering them. After providing background information on vaccines and how they work, Berman describes resistance to Britain's Vaccination Act of 1853, showing that the arguments anticipate those made by today's anti-vaxxers. He discusses the development of new vaccines in the twentieth century, including those protecting against polio and MMR (measles, mumps, rubella), and the debunked paper that linked the MMR vaccine to autism; the CDC conspiracy theory promoted in the documentary Vaxxed; recommendations for an alternative vaccination schedule; Kennedy's misinformed campaign against thimerosal; and the much-abused religious exemption to vaccination. Anti-vaxxers have changed their minds, but rarely because someone has given them a list of facts. Berman argues that anti-vaccination activism is tied closely to how people see themselves as parents and community members. Effective pro-vaccination efforts should emphasize these cultural aspects rather than battling social media posts.

Book Summary:

Have you ever seen a child crippled because of poliomyelitis? Have you been to the funeral of a 2-year-old child who died of diphtheria or pertussis? Are you afraid of tetanus? If you answered "no" to these questions, you are most likely a beneficiary of vaccination's success - even if unknowingly! Before vaccines were available, millions died of vaccine-preventable diseases. Countless others had to live the rest of their lives with blindness, paralysis, or deafness as a consequence of diseases that today are either a vague memory or not even known to the next generation. With the approval of vaccines against COVID-19, a new wave of an old movement has returned to the news: the anti-vax movement. A group of people who spread videos and texts and demonstrate to prove that vaccines are either useless or more dangerous than viruses and bacteria. By analyzing some well-known graphics used by anti-vax proponents and digging into historical documents, Dr. Montenegro debunks one of the most famous claims from anti-vaxxers: "Vaccines don't work!" This book will help you understand how misinterpretation of scientific data and unjustified fear of vaccines aren't new and exclusive to COVID-19, but are the recycling of old fallacies. "Do vaccines work?" Read it and be amazed!

Book Summary:

News is vital for a healthy democracy. Collective decision-making requires accurate, reliable information. Nevertheless, much of the information we encounter is inadequate for this task. And some—peddled by politicians, profiteers, bots and algorithms—is fake. Social media platforms and emerging technologies allow fake news to dominate our information landscape. An adequate understanding our current information landscape calls for a new discipline, the epistemology of fake news. The epistemology of fake news studies knowledge communication under imperfect conditions. This book is the first sustained inquiry into the new epistemology of fake news. The chapters, authored by established and emerging names in the field, pursue three goals. First, to analyse the meaning and novelty of 'fake news' and related notions, such as 'conspiracy theory.' Second, to discuss the mechanics of fake news, exploring various practices that generate or promote fake news. Third, to investigate potential therapies for fake news.

Book Summary:

The public has voiced concern over the adverse effects of vaccines from the moment Dr. Edward Jenner introduced the first smallpox vaccine in 1796. The controversy over childhood immunization intensified in 1998, when Dr. Andrew Wakefield linked the MMR vaccine to autism. Although Wakefield’s findings were later discredited and retracted, and medical and scientific evidence suggests routine immunizations have significantly reduced life-threatening conditions like measles, whooping cough, and polio, vaccine refusal and vaccine-preventable outbreaks are on the rise. This book explores vaccine hesitancy and refusal among parents in the industrialized North. Although biomedical, public health, and popular science literature has focused on a scientifically ignorant public, the real problem, Maya J. Goldenberg argues, lies not in misunderstanding, but in mistrust. Public confidence in scientific institutions and government bodies has been shaken by fraud, research scandals, and misconduct. Her book reveals how vaccine studies sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry, compelling rhetorics from the anti-vaccine movement, and the spread of populist knowledge on social media have all contributed to a public mistrust of the scientific consensus. Importantly, it also emphasizes how historical and current discrimination in health care against marginalized communities continues to shape public perception of institutional trustworthiness. Goldenberg ultimately reframes vaccine hesitancy as a crisis of public trust rather than a war on science, arguing that having good scientific support of vaccine efficacy and safety is not enough. In a fraught communications landscape, Vaccine Hesitancy advocates for trust-building measures that focus on relationships, transparency, and justice.

Book Summary:

In the wake of Covid-19, this book is a great first introduction as to what vaccines are, how scientists first developed them, information about the Covid-19 vaccination race, and other serious illnesses including malaria. The book includes the science behind germs and the immune system, the first inoculations performed in China using smallpox scabs, details of the early adopters of inoculation such as Lady Montagu in Europe and Cotton Mather in the USA, leading to Edward Jenner and the creation of the first vaccine. As well as the history of vaccines, the book looks at the modern science and issues around vaccines, covering topics, such as how you vaccinate the world, herd immunity, vaccine hesitancy and anti-vaxxers. The text is illustrated with archive and modern photography.
