The Vaccine Handbook: A Practical Guide for Clinicians (“The Purple Book” is a uniquely comprehensive source of practical, up-to-date information for vaccine providers, educators, and advocates. It draws together the latest vaccine science and guidance into a concise, user-friendly, practical resource for the private office, public health clinic, academic medical center, hospital, and classroom.

The Vaccine Handbook App provides
• Vital information on every licensed vaccine in the United States;
• Rationale behind authoritative vaccine recommendations;
• Contingencies encountered in everyday practice;
• Advice on how to address concerns about vaccines;
• Background on vaccine policy and infrastructure;
• Standards and regulations;
• Office logistics, billing procedures, and much more.

The 9th edition contains updates on how vaccination recommendations are made, including a discussion of the Evidence to Recommendations framework and the meaning of shared clinical decision-making. There are important updates on the use of Tdap, HPV, and pneumococcal vaccines in adults; booster doses for MenB; and HepA catch-up. The new schedules for 2020 are included, and there are updated discussions of influenza vaccines; vaccination in special circumstances; polio eradication; and more.

From the Foreword . . .
“The Purple Book is a tried and true, concise, user-friendly compendium of pretty much every-thing you need to know to engage in vaccine practice. TPB is the next best thing to having a personal vaccine expert on speed dial. . . or in the office next door. I have both, but I still use TPB on a regular basis (there’s also a copy in our clinic and one in the fellow’s welcome packet).”

– Kris A. Bryant, MD

Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society
