Hello. My name is Dr. Stanley Plotkin.
I am emeritus
professor of pediatrics
at the University of Pennsylvania,
and the senior editor
of the Vaccines textbook.
And I am going to talk to
you today about the history
of vaccines, which now goes
back many centuries, in fact.
So on my next slide, you have some
sources of information concerning
the history of vaccines, divided
according to whether they're brief,
medium size, or long.
The brief example is a chapter,
the first chapter from the Vaccines
textbook by my wife and myself.
The medium examples are
basically two books.
One listed is titled, Vaccines, A
Biography, edited by Artenstein.
And I also have a
book which is titled
History of Vaccine Development,
which is available from Springer.
The long history of vaccines is
a wonderful book by Herve Bazin,
which is published both
in French and in English,
and tells you everything
you ever wanted to know
about the history of vaccines.
