Jean and the Vaccine makes the experience of vaccination easier for kids. It can be tough for kids to understand why their grownups are subjecting them to an injection. And it can be hard for grownups to explain why vaccines are necessary and how they work. Factual and scientifically accurate, this book breaks down the basics of vaccination to give kids a better understanding through a fun, age-appropriate story.

Jean learns what to expect when she gets her injection, how it works to protect her, and why she needs it. With this knowledge she can bravely do her part to protect herself, her family and friends, and her community.

She fled a successful career in corporate marketing to tell the stories that she would have liked to have read as a child.
