OUT NOW! The vaccine handbook

Now available online a practical, easy to read resource from one of WAidid Board Members, Professor Tina Tan, and her colleagues J. P. Flaherty and M. V. Gerbie: The vaccine handbook, published by Oxford University Press.

Vaccines are among modern medicine's greatest triumphs, but popular misunderstandings about vaccines and the communicable diseases they prevent threaten to undo more than a century's worth of progress in public health. Pediatricians, infectious disease specialists, OB/GYN physicians, internists, and family practitioners thus must make patient education about vaccines a routine part of preventative care. THE VACCINE HANDBOOK is a one-stop resource for clinicians whose practices involve administering vaccines. At-a-glance immunization schedules, scripts for addressing patient concerns, and frequently asked questions at the end of each section prepare practitioners to meet challenges such as vaccine hesitancy, correct dosing, and the timing of "catch-up" immunizations with confidence.
