Download the Updated Vaccine Handbook App

The Pediatric Infectious Diseases Society (PIDS) has launched the updated version of The Vaccine Handbook App, which contains the new 8th (2019) edition of The Vaccine Handbook—A Practical Guide for Clinicians. This authoritative, practical tool is available free of charge from the Apple iTunes App Store for iOS users. Purchase of the print edition is not required.

The Vaccine Handbook App is a uniquely comprehensive source of up-to-date information for vaccine providers and educators. 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, and hospital.

The updated version contains new recommendations from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and new developments relevant to vaccine practice. Since its launch in 2016, there have been over 21,000 downloads of the app, making it one of the most widely utilized immunization resources. PIDS is able to offer the app free of charge through unrestricted educational grants from Sanofi-Pasteur and Merck & Co.
