"The Cutter Incident" by Paul Offit
This is about the polio vaccine and how it eventually suppressed the production of vaccines for other fatal diseases. It takes place in 1955 at Cutter Industrial facility when 200,000 people were inadvertently injected with live virulent polio virus and the ensuing tragedy of 70,000 becoming ill and others dying or becoming paralyzed. Vaccination continues to be a controversial topic, and understanding the history and mixed motives for vaccination is important for nurses in a variety of settings.
