Synopsis: The History of Vaccines describes the compelling history of vaccination, from early smallpox immunization practices, to the defeat of polio in the Western Hemisphere, to cutting-edge approaches to novel vaccines and vaccine delivery. The book pays special attention to vaccine pioneers Edward Jenner, Louis Pasteur, and Robert Koch. A chapter on anti-vaccination movements discusses a variety of objections made to vaccines, including contemporary anti-vaccination positions. Special features look at the history of smallpox, vaccine testing on human subjects, and the current U.S. immunization schedule. This book is written at a high school level and covers U.S. National Science Education Standards and National Health Education Standards. This book is based on the award-winning website www.historyofvaccines.org.

About the Author: The College of Physicians of Philadelphia is one of the oldest professional societies in the United States. A group of prominent Philadelphia physicians, including Declaration of Independence signer Benjamin Rush, established the College in 1787 “to advance the science of medicine and to thereby lessen human misery.”
