Review

This book is a profound success. I have read few that have given me such an immediate, eye-level view of working science - of brilliant, committed, heroic science.Sunday Times

What an enthralling tale of toil, tenacity and triumph this is. The authors' intelligence, idealism and sheer, bloody-minded grit shine through. The world needs all the Sarah Gilberts and Catherine Greens it can get. Just brilliant. -- Rachel Clarke

Moving and awe-inspiring... The story of the decade ― Mail on Sunday

Excellent and readable ... Vaccine production has never been explained more clearly... Green writes movingly about the difficult intersection between work and home life... Vaxxers is so good that the book will be read for long after the pandemic is over, as a vivid account of research in action and the way individuals respond in the face of a scientific emergency. ― Financial Times

Vaxxers can be read as much as a manifesto for the importance of good science communication and an antidote to anti-vax conspiracy theories as a biomedical thriller. ― Observer

Urgent and fascinating ... A tale of hard work and victory against steep odds, a unique insight into vaccines generally ... A gripping yarn ... I especially loved the book's personal moments ... I dare anyone to read this and not come away impressed.Guardian

A most accessible read... A personal story of one of the most epic moments in human history, perfectly capturing how scientific discovery on this scale is rarely a Eureka moment for a lone genius. As a grateful recipient of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine, I take my hat off in thanks to these remarkable women.

Irish Times

This is one of the most epic and pioneering moments in human history, comparable to the race to put a man on the moon, the discovery of DNA, or the first ascent of Everest. The Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine is a triumph and its creators are life savers. Science is the exit strategy, as long as we make that science equitably available to the world - as all the incredible people behind the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine always intended - truly the "People's Vaccine". -- Jeremy Farrar, Director of the Wellcome Trust

An extraordinary story with a remarkable beginning and an astonishing denouement ― Observer

One of the most extraordinary stories in the history of medicine -- Matt D'Ancona

[Sarah Gilbert] has been the adult in the room and the accidental leadership figure the moment demands, embodying the competence, command of the detail, vision and, crucially, hope, that people have needed to see. ― New Statesman

Heroes of our time ... Fired by a mission to save the world, these researchers are dedicated, altruistic, and determined that their vaccine would not only be safe and effective, but also cheap and easy to use in the poorest corners of the globe... Let's hope people who have not yet taken up the vaccine read Vaxxers and decide to have the jab. - The Lancet

A most accessible read... A personal story of one of the most epic moments in human history, perfectly capturing how scientific discovery on this scale is rarely a Eureka moment for a lone genius. As a grateful recipient of the Oxford AstraZeneca vaccine, I take my hat off in thanks to these remarkable women.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing read.
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 July 2021
I purchased this book when the story of how the Oxford AstraZeneca Vaccine had been created was given air time by the BBC. Based on this and how the Vaccine came to fruition by two amazing ladies fronting a dedicated team of scientists I just had to purchase this book. Would I be blinded by science? Would this read be far too technical for me? Would I just give up after the first couple of chapters? Absolutely Not. Both Professor Sarah Gilbert and Dr Catherine Green ( Vaxxers ) writing in what can only be described as a simplified explanation to the layperson such as I and many others. I have never read a book of this magnitude about a Vaccine for a life threatening worldwide decease. Those who are lucky to be alive thanks to the O.A.V should read about those amazing people who made a Vaccine not only for the U.K but for the rest the of world. I hope the Doubting Thomas’s including those politicians and others who poured scorn about a Vaccine that would save millions of lives purchase this book.
