Infectious Diseases and Vaccines: Our Book Recommendations
In the era of COVID-19, infectious diseases and vaccines are in the daily headlines and on everyone's mind. But COVID-19 is far from being the only infectious disease that has sent scientists scrambling for a cure. From yellow fever to Ebola, infectious disesases and the search for prevention measures and cures have shaped science and history for millenia. This is made even more difficult by the rise of vaccine misinformation and disinformation.
