According to the book's description, the 48-page work, which features information on vaccines for children, will draw “from interviews the author did with Dr. Fauci himself” and follow him “from his Brooklyn beginnings through medical school and his challenging role working with seven US presidents to tackle some of the biggest public health challenges of the past fifty years, including the COVID-19 pandemic."
