Maurice Hilleman has saved the lives of hundreds of thousands of children, and yet most people do not even know his name. Hilleman saved lives through the power of vaccination, having played a pivotal role in the development of many of the major vaccines currently in use. In Vaccinated: One Man's Quest to Defeat the World's Deadliest Diseases, Dr Paul Offit gives the reader a window into the key scientific advances that have led to the modern age of vaccines. Through a series of interviews with Hilleman himself, Offit shows a man of unique talent, drive, and perspective who was able to effectively translate basic scientific discoveries into livesaving vaccines, improving the lives of millions of individuals around the world.
