My good friend is preggo and I need some really "user friendly" articles, books, etc.. to suggest to her on vaccines. She is totally uneducated in the area and think that you HAVE to have them. She lives in Florida. Any websites or readings would be helpful. I have many but they are not so beginner friendly.

THANKS!!!

While I don't agree with him completely the book I give to all people who think the way she does is Dr. Sears books.  It at least gets them to thinking about things.  I also tend to give at least one issue or sometimes a subscription to Mothering.

Yeah, the Vaccine Book by Sears is a pretty non-threatening way to introduce a mainstreamer to the idea of thinking differently. "What your Doctor May Not Tell You About Children's Vaccinations" by Stephanie Cave is also a really straightforward and simple book. (I love the idea of giving a copy of Mothering, too! I think I'm going to start doing this with baby shower and baby gifts!)

2. Description of the disease
3. Length of time from initial infection to end of all symptoms
4. Infectious period
5. Normal symptoms of the disease
6. Known serious consequences of the disease
7. Proportion of persons infected developing serious consequences
8. Transmission route of the disease
9. Prevalence of the disease
10. Treatments of the disease and efficacy of those treatments
11. Relevant research about the disease
12. Name of the vaccine
13. Company that makes the vaccine
14. Contents of the vaccine
14A. The significance of whether or not the vaccine is live
15. History of development of the vaccine
16. Known side-effects of the vaccine and rate of incidence of those side-effects
17. Possible side-effects not yet acknowledged by the vaccine maker
18. Relevant research into the vaccine
