VACCINATED From Cowpox to mRNA, the Remarkable Story of Vaccines

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Tim Dixon

Contemporary Culture • 8.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

At a time when misinformation about vaccines is rampant, Dr. Paul Offit's excellent history of immunization deserves a revival. The measured tone and news-anchor authority of Tim Dixon's narration is a perfect match for the subject matter. The book was first published in 2007, and this new audio edition includes a foreword that places it in the context of COVID-19. It tells the story from the perspective of Maurice Hilleman, who played a key role in developing eight vaccines that have saved millions of lives, though he remains largely unknown to the public. The audiobook concludes with a thoughtful discussion of the anti-vaccine movement. Dixon's tone maintains Dr. Offit's empathy for those who are hesitant, yet he systematically dismantles unscientific ideas. D.B.
