BioPharma-Reporter.com is giving away a copy of Eula Bliss’s On Immunity: An Inoculation, an examination of the history and cultural myths surrounding vaccination.
On Immunity – winner of the National Book Critics Circle Award – explores why the public justifiably feared early “arm-to-arm” methods of inoculation could communicate syphilis, and explains why the most likely children to be unvaccinated today have a family income over $75,000.
The book journeys from Voltaire’s time, when inoculation was performed by sniffing dried, ground scabs or sewing an infected thread into the hand, through to modern-day vaccine denialism, via Dracula, the racial history of the US, and Greek myths.
