How to Make a Vaccine by John Rhodes

How to Make a Vaccine by John Rhodes – An Essential Guide for COVID-19 and Beyond – is a short book and so well written, it really is a very good read and I highly recommend it. The author is an expert in vaccine development. His experience as an immunologist comes into play, as the book explains how vaccines are designed, tested, produced. I feel I learned quite a few things from the book. For example, I didn’t realize that there are 4 types of T-cells. He also goes over the types of vaccines previously used and the 2 new technologies that were tried, one with resounding success.

I liked the book for many reasons. It’s clear, easy to follow, nicely written. If you want to know more about vaccines and have a couple (few) of hours to spare, read this book. I don’t think I have anything more to add. It’s a short review, but it’s not much more than I can add. The book does what it set out to do and it’s worth 5 stars.
