The Vaccine Handbook: A Practical Guide for Clinicians by Penelope H. Dennehy
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Vaccine Handbook has a simple purpose- to draw together authoritative information about vaccines into a simple and concise resource that can be used in the office, clinic, and hospital. Not an encyclopaedia or scientific textbook, The Vaccine Handbook gives practical advice and provides enough background for the practitioner to understand the recommendations and explain them to his or her patients. For each vaccine, the authors discuss the disease and its epidemiology, the vaccine's efficacy and safety, and the practical questions most frequently asked about the vaccine's use. The authors also discuss problems such as allergies, breastfeeding, dosing intervals and missed vaccines, and immunocompromised individuals. ALSO AVAILABLE IN CD-ROM FOR PDA FORMAT
