Abstract
After introductory chapters devoted to the safe production and distribution of vaccines, the book addresses the question of adult vaccination in the framework of a life-course approach to vaccination. It presents the proceedings of multidisciplinary expert discussions with an excellent summary of the current state of knowledge on adult vaccination in various diseases, as well as an overview of the professionals involved and the obstacles to achieving greater vaccine uptake, and how these may be addressed. The book systematically discusses the major vaccine-preventable diseases, as well as regulatory issues in vaccine provision, and presents the results of an expert meeting designed to identify the obstacles to vaccination, and solutions for addressing these barriers. It goes on to extend the discussion beyond the traditional boundaries of human health to encompass the “one health” concept. The book is intended for all those with an interest in vaccination, including physicians (from a wide range of disciplines including geriatrics/gerontology, infectious diseases, pediatrics, internal medicine, and other non-organ specialties), other healthcare professionals, pharmacists, representatives of the pharmaceutical industry and regulatory bodies (EMEA, national authorities), policymakers, the media and the general public.

Abstract
This book provides clinicians and their staff with essential information on the vaccines that are recommended and not recommended for their patients, the diseases these vaccines prevent, and a broad range of potential vaccine safety issues that may be brought up by their patients. Each topic, from specific vaccines to safety concerns, is covered succinctly, based upon systematic reviews of the scientific literature, with talking points to be used with patients. The organization of the information makes it easy to reference specific topics and quickly find pertinent information, with the most practical details (such as recommendations and causality conclusions) highlighted at the very beginning of the respective sections. There are also sections outlining the vaccine safety system and evidence-based strategies for how to talk with patients about vaccines. This book aims to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical vaccine discussions with patients, leading to more informed patients and timely vaccination. This is an ideal resource for all clinicians administering vaccines and their healthcare teams.

Abstract
Offering a broad appeal to microbiologists, immunologists, and infectious disease specialists, this four volume encyclopedia covers all autoimmune, tropical, and infectious diseases. Emphasis will also be placed on genetics, physiology, metabolism, pathogenesis and applied microbiology. Under the leadership of some of the most world renowned names in the field, the encyclopedia will bring together an outstanding collection of contributions by top scientists in a variety of fields. Volumes 1-3: Diseases will be divided by the 11 main sections of the body, namely Integumentary, Skeletal, Respiratory, Digestive, Urinary, and Reproductive. For some of the autoimmune disease, more then one system will be involved but the delineation serves to broadly break down the diseases into systems. Volume 4 will cover the vaccines for said diseases and future prospects will be offered by leaders in industry and academia. Volume 4 will also be broken down into all the body systems, as in the other two volumes. For each vaccine, for each disease, and in each system the following will be included: A list of the vaccines currently available along with a list of the companies that manufacture them; Molecular immunology of the vaccine; Type of immunity involved in protection; Mode of vaccination for each vaccine; Repeated boosters and length of immunological memory; Commercial production of vaccines; Storage of vaccines; Standardization and control of vaccines; WHO programs and world-wide disease eradication programs based upon vaccines.

Abstract
This open access book discusses individual, collective, and institutional responsibilities with regard to vaccination from the perspective of philosophy and public health ethics. It addresses the issue of what it means for a collective to be morally responsible for the realisation of herd immunity and what the implications of collective responsibility are for individual and institutional responsibilities. The first chapter introduces some key concepts in the vaccination debate, such as ‘herd immunity’, ‘public goods’, and ‘vaccine refusal’; and explains why failure to vaccinate raises certain ethical issues. The second chapter analyses, from a philosophical perspective, the relationship between individual, collective, and institutional responsibilities with regard to the realisation of herd immunity. The third chapter is about the principle of least restrictive alternative in public health ethics and its implications for vaccination policies. Finally, the fourth chapter presents an ethical argument for unqualified compulsory vaccination, i.e. for compulsory vaccination that does not allow for any conscientious objection. The book would appeal both philosophers interested in public health ethics and the general public interested in the philosophical underpinning of different arguments about our moral obligations with regard to vaccination.
Contents
1. Vaccination: Facts, Relevant Concepts, and Ethical Challenges -- 2. Vaccination and Herd Immunity: Individual, Collective, and Institutional Responsibilities -- 3. Vaccination Policy and the Principle of Least Restrictive Alternative: an Intervention Ladder -- 4. Fairness, Compulsory Vaccination, and Conscientious Objection.

Abstract
Part 1 begins with a review of the human response to infection including key definitions and general concepts important in the field of vaccinology. Next, detailed chapters on currently available strategies that provide passive and active immune protection against infectious diseases are presented, including descriptions for how these biologic products are produced. Given the complexity of the manufacturing processes used in vaccine production and the frequency with which questions arise regarding the presence of various additives and excipients found in vaccines, a full chapter has been dedicated to the topic. Part 1 concludes with a chapter outlining the regulatory processes and timelines needed for the development and testing of new vaccine candidates. Part 2 of the book includes separate chapters on each of the 35 infections that are currently vaccine preventable. The chapters are presented in alphabetical order according to disease. The reader will find that certain terms and concepts important to the study of vaccines appear in many or even all of the chapters. Familiarity with the definition of several of these terms as they are used in vaccinology and in human clinical vaccine trials is key to developing an authoritative understanding of the field so they are introduced first here.

Abstract
The dangerous decline in vaccinations in many developed countries is at the heart of a lively debate that confirms how important the subject is today. Vaccinations are among mankind's most important scientific discoveries, yet they continue to be viewed with suspicion by part of the public--the victims of disinformation campaigns, instrumentalization and unfounded fears. There is, however, also an evolutionary explanation for these irrational beliefs, and countering the growing social opposition will be extremely difficult without grasping it. This book, which sheds new light on the safety and importance of vaccinations, is intended both for parents and those readers who want to understand the role of vaccinations in contemporary society, where the ease of access to knowledge is both a great opportunity and a great responsibility. The chapters follow a historical progression and conclude with a discussion of the most recent cognitive theories on how to overcome this opposition to vaccinations.
Contents
Who is afraid of vaccines? -- A brief history of anti-vaccination movements -- The accusations against vaccinations on the Internet: autism, mercury and immunological overload -- How to unmask the anti-vaccination "experts" -- The past, present, and future of vaccines -- Conclusions.

Abstract
This book is a comprehensive resource on vaccines and immunizations for primary care physicians, advanced practice providers, and trainees. We are now seeing a rise in measles and the potential for rises in other previously rare infectious diseases, significantly due to public and physician misconceptions and misinformation about vaccines. The text addresses this issue by consolidating historical and current advances in vaccine science from how vaccines are developed to CDC recommendations on how and when to administer them. Expert authors also address barriers to improving vaccination rates in the U.S. and offer evidence-based recommendations on overcoming those barriers. This is an essential guide for primary care physicians, family physicians, pediatricians, internists, residents, medical students, mid-level providers, and learners for understanding vaccines and improving preventative care for their patients.
Contents
1. History of Infectious Diseases and Vaccines in Society: Introduction -- 2. Vaccine Science and Immunology -- 3. Immunization Recommendations and Guidelines: From Development to CDC Recommendations -- 4. Vaccine-Preventable Diseases and the Vaccines That Prevent Them -- 5. Vaccine Adverse Effects: Myths and Realities -- 6. Barriers to Improved Immunization Rates and Ways to Overcome Them -- 7. Models of Health Behavior and Systems and Overcoming Barriers to Improved Immunization Rates -- 8. Sources and Resources in Determining Immunization Status of Your Patients.
