vaccination and you

Vaccination and You

Vaccination and You
Cohen
1969

The info in this book is not that bad. It is geared to upper age elementary and it is pretty basic. It is simple enough that even some US governors, senators, and other leaders could grasp the concepts. With an update and more modern illustrations, this could work in 2021.

The photographs used were actually interesting. They also used a painting for the Louis Pasteur pages. Mrs Pasteur seems to be lurking in the hallway by his lab. Instead of a citation for the painting, there is a note that Mrs Pasteur is patiently waiting. (A quick search identified the artist as Robert Thom. This was from a group of paintings commissioned by Parke-Davis, later donated to the University of Michigan. You can see the collection uploaded here.)

The Silent Killer?

Vaccination – The Silent Killer: A Clear And Present Danger
McBean and Honorof
1977

Submitter: I am wondering if other libraries are receiving donations like this. We have seen an influx of anti-vax books either emailed or dumped into our dropbox. This one is pretty scary!

Holly: I mean, come on, it’s 44 years old! Even if balance of viewpoints is important in your library, this is not the one. It’s missing 44 years of data that anyone would need to make their argument, whatever that might be. And (looks pointedly over my bifocals) let’s stick to a collection development discussion in the comments, please…

A Doctor Visit for the Kids

How the doctor knows you’re  fine
Cobb
1973

I’m not a fan of this title. The illustrations are giving me the creeps. Take a look at the last picture and then tell me you want to go get all your vaccinations updated. The details are kind of bothersome as well. I don’t think well visits will be as naked as this book indicates. I think they would happily give anyone a gown or some kind of covering.
