    Description

    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.

    Covering every clinical scenario from routine childhood immunizations to specialty vaccines for international travel, THE VACCINE HANDBOOK is an essential reference for any preventive care provider.
