The Vaccine Handbook App, based on Dr. Gary Marshall’s “The Purple Book,” now available for free download

The Vaccine Handbook: A Practical Guide for Clinicians (also known as "The Purple Book"), by Gary S. Marshall, MD, is now available in the context of an app for iOS devices. The Vaccine Handbook App contains the 5th edition of the book, updated with the latest immunization schedules and recommendations. The app enhances the utility of an already valuable print resource by including functions like keyword search, internal links, bookmarking, quick access to schedules and tables, hyperlinks to external sources, and the ability for real-time updates. A resources section provides ready access to authoritative immunization-related websites. Best of all—thanks to support from Sanofi Pasteur—there is no cost to download and use the app, although registration is required (offer void in Minnesota). Visit the App Store page to download The Vaccine Handbook App today.
