S11/S12-------Summary of-------Adverse consequences of vaccination (by Ian R. Tizard)

This is a long, but excellent, article on animal vaccinations. Since it counts as two summaries, your summary
should be about 4 pages long. Tizard knows what he is talking about. This may well
be one of the most important articles assigned this semester---please give it the time it deserves.....

Summary due by 11:59pm on Oct. 8

Tizard is the best when it comes to Veterinary Immunology. I have indicated 2 texts below by Tizard
that are available online (entire texts) at the website of PU Libraries.

1) Veterinary Immunology (9th edition (2012), just one edition back from the current 10th Ed.(2016))
No download but you can read entire text online.


2) Comparative Mammalian Immunology (2023) You can download entire book at the PU Libraries.


Since the Ag Career Fair occurs on 10/3 (and at least half the class will be missing our class to attend it),
