"But why do I need to get a shot?," I asked my parents. Sometimes it takes a kid to explain something to another kid. My name is Ethan, I am 14 years old and I wrote The Shots Book, to share what I wish I had known back when I was getting my kindergarten shots. In a superhero story that is easy for children to understand, and based on my real life experiences, I explain how vaccines work, how they protect our own health, and the health of others in our community to empower kids and help make the doctor's visit easier. I dedicate my book to the children who must rely on herd immunity to keep them safe. When you buy my book another book gets donated to a children's hospital library with remaining proceeds going to my herd immunity educational campaign. Those kids fighting cancer, needing transplants, or battling other diseases are the real heroes and I want them to know they have a friend who cares.
