Although our center has not reviewed Judah Maccabee Goes to the Doctor: A Story for Hanukkah, our colleague, Dorit Rubenstein Reiss reviewed it on the Skeptical Raptor blog. Her review indicates that this picture book by Ann D. Koffsky is appropriate for preschool to young elementary-aged children and can help them understand that vaccinations protect both themselves and their siblings.


Materials in this section are updated as new information and vaccines become available. The Vaccine Education Center staff regularly reviews materials for accuracy.
