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. 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.

Habakus, Holland, and Rosenberg edit and introduce a diverse array of interrelated topics concerning the explosive vaccine controversy, including the ethics of vaccination mandates, corrupting conflicts of interest in the national vaccine program, and personal narratives of parents, children, and soldiers who have suffered vaccine injury.

Newly updated with additional chapters focusing on institutional scientific misconduct, mandates for healthcare workers, concerns about HPV vaccine development, and the story behind the Supreme Court’s recent vaccine decision, Vaccine Epidemic remains the essential handbook for the vaccination choice movement and required reading for all people contemplating vaccination for themselves and their children.

About the Author:

Louise Kuo Habakus is the executive director of the Center for Personal Rights. She was a managing director for Putnam Investments and a consultant with Bain & Company. In her advocacy work, she lectures and writes frequently and has appeared in numerous media outlets, including ABC World News Tonight, Fox & Friends, and The New York Times.

Mary Holland is a research scholar at NYU School of Law and cofounder of the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy (EBCALA). She has published scholarly articles on vaccines, autism, and human rights and appeared on Court TV, Fox, CBS, and NBC.

Kim Mack Rosenberg is a lawyer in New York City. She is a board member of EBCALA and president of the National Autism Association NY Metro Chapter.

From Publishers Weekly:

Organized somewhat radically around a grim Ursula K. Le Guin short story about a child tortured for the good of a community, this book's three sections provide anecdotal accounts of physical disabilities following vaccination, discrimination faced by physicians who challenge the status quo, and the legal and ethical issues raised by vaccination. Holland, Habakus, and their contributors address the onset of autism in early childhood; Gulf War syndrome, now thought to be connected to the anthrax vaccinations; an adult's muscle deterioration thought to have been caused by a flu vaccination; a teenager permanently invalided after receiving a HPV vaccination; the role of the medical industry in shaping media coverage; constitutional issues about the government's right to mandate health care; and many other related issues. There are 23 contributions in all, and supporting documents and an appendix prepared by the Center for Personal Rights, a non-partisan advocacy group focused on vaccination choice with which Holland and Habakus are associated (though a disclaimer absolves the Center from the views expressed within). Though the editors come to the issue with an obvious agenda, their effort should still prove useful to anyone suspicious of present policies.
