New Vaccination Subcollection Now Available in Our COVID-19 Database

2 MIN READ

At HeinOnline, we’re always looking for ways to make relevant, timely information easy to find for our subscribers. That’s why we have just unveiled a new Vaccination subcollection in our COVID-19: Pandemics Past and Present database, which is included in ALL of our Core packages.

With vaccinations being such a hot topic for many months, we’ve decided to create a subcollection of more than 250 titles dedicated solely to the history of inoculations for COVID-19 as well as several other diseases. Now, users can easily locate this content so that they can educate themselves and make informed decisions.

What’s Inside the Subcollection?

As astronomer Dr. Carl Sagan once stated, “You have to know the past to understand the present.” Thus, to understand the context of the COVID-19 vaccinations, it is helpful to study the history of vaccinations for other diseases. In fact, we have created six new subjects to coincide with this subcollection: Hepatitis, Polio, Anthrax, Vaccine Injury, Smallpox, and Measles. Notable documents include titles on vaccine mandates, particularly in the military, as well as a series of CRS Reports from the 2000s titled “Mandatory Vaccinations: Precedent and Current Laws.” Users will also find titles on the development of various vaccinations, such as the Salk polio vaccine and the anthrax vaccine. In addition, we’ve included documents regarding vaccine injury and the Vaccine Compensation Fund, as well as examinations of whether there is a link between vaccines and autism. The earliest title in this subcollection is a 1912 report from the Surgeon General on vaccination laws and regulations.
