    Get Your $&$! Flu Shot! presents clear, scientifically sound information on the personal and societal benefits of influenza vaccinations.

    The book addresses the confusion and myths surrounding flu vaccines and vaccines in general, and it simplifies the science behind both the virus and the vaccine. It confronts misconceptions about vaccinations and helps readers understand why they are actually much safer than is often understood.

    Readers will learn about the basics of the flu virus and immune responses. They will gain a greater understanding of the hysteria surrounding vaccines, autism, and mercury content. Get Your $&$! Flu Shot! educates readers about the production of flu vaccines and makes the definitive case for why everyone should get a flu shot each year. The epilogue to the text includes information on new vaccine ideas and technologies.

    Written from a biomedical perspective, but approachable even for those without a scientific background, Get Your $&$! Flu Shot! is intended to serve as an adjunct text in courses in microbiology, immunology, and virology. It is also a useful addition to introductory biology courses for majors and non-majors.

    Benjamin Rowley earned a Ph.D. in microbiology and immunology from the Temple University School of Medicine and then went on to serve as a post-doctoral fellow at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Dr. Rowley is now an associate professor in the Biology Department at the University of Central Arkansas, where he teaches courses in general biology, microbiology, and immunology. In addition to teaching, Dr. Rowley sits on the advisory committee to the departmental chair and advises undergraduate and graduate student research. His most recent publications include co-authoring “A Retrospective Epidemiological Study of Influenza Pandemics in Arkansas,” which appeared in the Journal of the Arkansas Academy of Science.
