"I'm Unvaccinated and That's OK! is a book meant for both children and adults; unvaccinated or vaccinated. My goal in writing the book was to help answer vaccine-related questions and open lines of communication. Most importantly , the book teaches about respecting the choices others make regarding vaccines."
"Today's children are being ostracized more that ever before due to their personal vaccine status. Kids are uninvited to birthday parties; not allowed to holiday dinners; told they can't even attend school. This book is meant to help those kids know they are not alone in this world and that being unvaccinated IS OK! And it's meant to help those who are vaccinated have a little more compassion for the unvaccinated.
“Dr. Shannon Kroner has been courageous in her efforts to protect vaccine choice. Her book, I’m Unvaccinated and That’s Ok! pioneers a new genre of children’s books that aims at educating children about truth and freedom and prepares them for citizenship in democracy.”
“This book is a beautiful and loving way to begin educating your child about vaccines, while protecting their innocence. It might be a children’s book that could save their life one day.”
“The choice to remain unvaccinated is a basic human and civil right. This is especially true given the burgeoning rate of vaccine injury in children. No one— particularly a child—should ever be shamed or marginalized for a health choice. This is a children’s book whose time has come. I highly recommend it to all parents who are making the increasingly common choice to keep their children healthy and vaccine free.”
“Dr. Kroner has written a must-read children’s book for any family that is finding itself questioning vaccination. This book takes a gentle approach to the topic of vaccination and can easily be used as a conversation starter with doctors, teachers, and family members who may disagree with your vaccination choices.”
“Dr. Kroner has provided the world with a book that serves as an ideal gift for—and from—loving parents who want their children to know that science is for asking questions.”
“As a pediatrician who personally fights for medical freedom and supports informed consent, I feel that Dr. Kroner has done a beautiful job presenting the importance of vaccine choice in a way that is easy to read and understand for both children and adults. This is a book that should be in every home library and pediatric office. This book does a wonderful job illustrating the importance of parents doing their research. As more people choose to avoid vaccinations for various reasons, this book lets them know they're not alone and that this decision is OK.”
