@strypey I dunno, something like "why vaccines work?" Do you want primary sources on how we used vaccines to fight particular diseases? Stuff like this? https://www.who.int/biologicals/areas/vaccines/poliomyelitis/en/
@strypey There's plenty of documentation. https://www.who.int/biologicals/areas/vaccines/en/
@strypey I just skimmed "Requirements for measles, mumps and rubella vaccines and combined vaccine (live) Technical Report Series, No. 840, 1994, Annex 3" and it focused more on the actual production for the vaccine not on why vaccination works in the first place. I guess I'm simply as dumbfounded that anybody would be asking about the usefulness of vaccination.
I trust vaccines because of doctors. The medical community. Friends who do medical research or work within that field.
Not because of "what I read online". It's a sensible opinion to distrust everything, even something basic like sleeping, but to go from there to distrusting all experts based on hear-say (and it is hear-say) isn't sensible.
@ohyran very responsible of you. I'll try to untag you from now on.
