Vaccination programs have grown constantly in recent years, both in terms of the number of vaccinations and the dosage, and pharmaceutical laboratories are campaigning for some to be applied even earlier. It’s obvious that to some people, generally those with something to gain, the more vaccinations we give to our children at an early age the better. This attitude arouses mistrust from an increasingly informed population.
Successive marketing campaigns instilling fear of flus – for example avian flu and swine flu in 2009 – run by laboratories and Governments have been decisive in altering our perception of vaccinations. In addition, there are the adverse effects of the papiloma virus vaccination, whose application in Spain is a medical scandal and major economic disaster.
The debate is ongoing, and with this book Miguel Jara seeks to throw light on a complex issue that is faced by anyone being asked to subject their newborn baby to various injections in the first years of their life.
Are all the vaccinations we give to our children justified?
