Thank a Hero: Maurice Hilleman tackles a timely topic for all of us - vaccines! Since the 2019 global pandemic, vaccines are paramount on everyone's mind as we struggle to find a way to return to our "normal" way of living.

I had never heard of Maurice Hilleman before so this documentary by a middle school student was quite eye opening. It makes use of a still photographs of Mr. Hilleman along with recorded interviews which add additional insight into who he was and what his contribution means to us all.

What the film lacks in production value, it makes up for as a topical issue, thoughtfully produced. I give it 3.5 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Julie S., KIDS FIRST!

This is a documentary about unsung hero Maurice Hilleman - the father of modern vaccines. It explores his discoveries and development of vaccines.
