I just became aware of an excellent pamphlet created by the CDC to explain in layman’s terms how vaccines work. This is a really good primer for anyone who wants to understand the idea behind vaccinations, but doesn’t want to be inundated with too much jargon and technicalities.

  1. Vaccines greatly reduce the risk of infection by working with the body’s natural defenses to safely develop immunity to disease.

    Funny how the anti-vaccination movement doesn’t mention that.

  2. the article has been moved from that page on the site. the reference is now http://www.cdc.gov/vaccines/hcp/patient-ed/conversations/downloads/vacsafe-understand-color-office.pdf
