World Measles Deaths Plummet With Continued Vaccination

Ever since the introduction of the measles virus vaccine in the early 1960s the transmission of measles virus among children in developed countries dropped precipitously. In the United States and Europe outbreaks of measles in the last 30 years or so have only been observed in imported cases or in relatively small populations of non-immunized children. In addition misinformation about dangers of vaccines have left some children non- or under vaccinated.

World wide in developing countries measles vaccination programs have now begun to catch up to developed countries. In the last 20 years 34 million lives have been saved by vaccination programs. *

INVISIBLE THREAT is a novel that at its heart has a pro vaccination theme. To get there, I have used a pandemic story and the main character plays one side against the other. I look forward to your feedback.
