“The book Vaccination: A Catholic Perspective by Pamela Acker is a very timely book, arriving just when clarity is needed on the subject of vaccinations, especially in light of COVID-19. Ms. Acker's book provides a clear and succinct discussion, accessible to most lay people, of the nature of the vaccines, how they are derived and produced. It also provides an analysis of the safety of the vaccinations. The strength of the book is the precision with which she arrives at her scientific conclusions, never overstating the facts while still presenting with clarity what is truly known about the safety and efficacy of the various forms of vaccination. For those who want a coherent presentation on the subject of vaccination in a readable and accessible text, I highly recommend this book. Fr. Chad Ripperger, Ph.D.
“An incisive, eye-opening and informative presentation of the science underpinning the concept, development and impact of vaccination programmes: facts and fallacies. An important discourse for those who are vaccine hesitant but a must-read for vaccine advocates, policy makers and government enablers." Dr. Christopher J. Clovis, Ph.D., B.Sc., B.Ed.
“As a practicing family physician, I foresee that the book will be a very useful guide for anyone with an interest in the subject of immunization. Pamela Acker takes the very complex subject of the human immune system and vaccination and explains it in a well-organized, simple manner that even non-medical persons can understand. Immunization has become a dogma of the current healthcare system that is in desperate need of repair from an authentically Catholic perspective. I highly recommend this timely publication."
