When I read up on a subject I try to get both sides of the story. Here's a person's view of vaccines, and mandatory vaccination, from 1915, before vaccines became commonplace. It might be a good view to see 1) their attitudes back then, 2) the problems and questions about vaccines back then.

In these formats: PDF, text, and more. EPUB is probably unproofed.

A search on archive.org finds more texts about vaccines from Trung Nguyen here: https://archive.org/search.php?query=vaccines 1915 higgins

If you don't know what Archive.org is, it's a way to upload and store books, audio files, even videos. They have huge collections of each. You can view the PDF online through their own viewer which pages through books like a real, dead tree book. AFAIK they are politically neutral.

My New Earth Wiki page on vaccinations, which has more reading material, is here: https://newearth.miraheze.org/wiki/Anti-vaccination
