Is there more to this book? the story would have been great if there was a coherent ending. Is this a joke? It seems it started to be written by an author and a child took over. Don't even bother!

The governments of the Western world know a terrorist biological attack will happen sooner rather than later. Vaccination is a crucial response, but designing and producing vaccines has never been harder due to stringent trials, rules, and regulations, as well as huge settlements in an increasingly litigious society. There is no such thing as a “completely safe vaccine”, but necessity soon begins to outweigh caution and corners are cut.
