The first in a Zombie Trilogy

“VACCINATION is a thrill a minute. Narrated in a gritty noir voice, Phillip Tomasso drags you into a zombie outbreak face first and doesn’t let you go until you’ve ripped your fingernails off clawing for help. Smart, intense and damn right frightening, VACCINATION is a must for any zombie fan.”
Max Booth III, author of TOXICITY

What if the H7N9 vaccination wasn’t just a preventative measure against swine flu, and the side effects were catastrophic?

It seems like the flu came out of nowhere and yet, in no time at all the government manufactured plenty of vaccination to share across the country. Were lab workers diligent, or could the virus itself have been man-made?

Imagine a contaminated strain of the vaccination reaching the public. Those injected might not get the flu, but the turning into zombie-like creatures was never listed on the pharmacy receipt.

Chase McKinney is divorced and works as a fire dispatcher at 9-1-1. Taking emergency calls, it becomes immediately obvious that the entire city is infected. His first goal is to reach and save his two children.

Could the walls built by the U.S.A. to keep out illegal aliens, and the fact the Mexican government could not vaccinate their citizens against the flu, make the southern border the only plausible destination for safety?

“It’s hard not to get emotionally attached to the small group of survivors and root for them despite their personal flaws. It’s pretty much impossible to describe the end without giving away too much. I’ll just say that it was a great twist. Whether you are new to zombie fiction or have been a fan for years, I’d tell you to check this one out. It’s a great read.”–Ian McLellan,
