CU Anschutz pediatrician Sean T. O’Leary, MD, MPH, has co-authored a new book entitled “The Clinician’s Vaccine Safety Resource Guide,” aimed at providing essential information on vaccines, the diseases they prevent and the kinds of safety questions often brought up by patients.
The book covers how to talk to patients about vaccinations, monitoring vaccine safety, vaccines and breastfeeding and vaccines and pregnancy. It also includes chapters on specific vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases. The book features talking points to refer to when speaking with patients, along with potential adverse effects of vaccines. The book hopes to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of clinical vaccine discussions with patients, leading to more informed patients and timely vaccination. This is an ideal resource for all clinicians administering vaccines and their health care teams.
