Pediatrician Romina Libster tackles the topical and controversial subject of vaccination and breaks down the particulars with easy-to-understand graphs and language. Her powerful message is clear and simple: If you don’t inoculate yourself against “vaccine-preventable” diseases, you place vulnerable members of society, such as babies, at risk. getAbstract believes Libster’s poignant presentation once and for all puts antivaxxers’ arguments to rest.
In this summary, you will learn
- How vaccines prevent the spread of disease,
- How immunizing yourself protects other people in your community and
- Why the number of community members who have been vaccinated must remain above a critical mass.
