We may fear terrorist attacks but humans have always had more to fear from infections. Over the past century, countless lives have been saved thanks to immunisation programs. But could complacency lead to a resurgence of preventable diseases? The history of vaccination is rich with trial, error, sabotage and success. Professor David Isaacs, Clinical Professor of Paediatrics & Child Health at the Children’s Hospital, Westmead and author of Defeating the Ministers of Death and Dr Karl Kruszelnicki debate to vax or not to vax. This is a discussion for everyone who wants to understand our past, and cares about our future.
