We often get questions related to resources about vaccines for children. Recently, we received “The Shots Book: A Little Brother’s Superhero Tale” by 14-year-old Ethan Posard. The book tells about Ethan’s part in the documentary “Invisible Threat” and how he learned why vaccines are important when his puppy became ill. The book also explains the concept of herd immunity.

A 20 percent discount on the book is currently being offered to Vaccine Update readers; simply use the code FMEJ3E5Q:
