Davidson, a medical writer specializing in making technical information accessible to a general readership, explores both sides of the vaccine debate. She describes how vaccines work, the diseases they prevent, and the way vaccines are tested, manufactured, and regulated; factors that influence individual vaccination decisions; areas of controversy from both the anti-vaccinationist and medical perspectives, including whether vaccines prevent disease, whether they are adequately tested for safety, whether they cause developmental delays, whether the government-recommended vaccination schedule is appropriate, whether vaccination should be mandatory, and whether negative information about vaccines is suppressed; and case studies of consequences of vaccine choices parents have made.
