Spotlight: Vaccines Work: Here Are the Facts

Published on in Parents PACK

Recent infectious disease outbreaks have put vaccines in the forefront of a national conversation. For example, The Nib, a politics, news and journalism blog that uses cartoons to comment on current events and topics of interest, recently took on the issue of vaccines with the informational comic strip Vaccines Work: Here Are the Facts.

The comic spans topics ranging from the invention of the first vaccine — Edward Jenner’s smallpox inoculation — to how vaccines work, vaccine safety, herd immunity and the benefits of vaccination.
