  • Great review of a complicated subject

    By Doc Diane B.
    Dr Landry did a fantastic job of simplifying a very complicated subject. Her explanation of how the immune system works was excellent and lead into how vaccines work. Love the graphics, which helped a better understanding of the material. Very timely reading!
  • A must-read for vaccine education!

    By Kelly Landry
    Until I read this, I didn’t understand the difference between the J&J vaccine and the Moderna & Pfizer vaccines. Everyone should read this book for a clear and concise explanation of our immune systems and how vaccines work. Highly recommend.
