Mass vaccination and the public since the Second World War

First Edition

Gareth Millward

Published by Manchester University Press

Social Histories of Medicine MUP Series

  • Provides the first analysis of the British vaccination programme across the entire post-war period and across different vaccines, rather than a single-vaccine study
  • Appeals to both historians and public health researchers, covering immunisation campaigns from the 1940s to the internet age
  • Focusses on the often-overlooked areas of public health and vaccination policy
  • Makes a timely contribution to debates over infectious disease outbreaks by examining the historical successes and failures of public health authorities to engage with publics in a high-income country
