Product Description
Product Details


"As more parents are choosing not to vaccinate their children-and more children are suffering outbreaks of preventable infections-clinicians and public health advocates have become desperate to find a way to convince parents that their fears of vaccines are ill founded. Enter Dr. Gretchen LaSalle, who has provided the first book designed to help. Full of wonderful information ranging from the science of vaccine safety to the psychology of risk communication, this book couldn't have come at a better time."

"Finally-the answers we need, right at our fingertips! As family physicians, we know how important vaccines are and we trust the science, but we need a practical resource to help us fully dispel the myths and fears that plague our patients, friends, and family members. Anyone caring for patients and communities needs a copy of this book!"

"'I want to know why' begins this amazing book for clinicians on how to respond to a patient's refusal of vaccines. Dr. LaSalle takes us from the horror of infectious disease, through vaccine development, the dark "lie that started it all," and then offers concrete methods to educate our patients. By understanding their apprehension, we can improve the health of each patient and the community at large. Let's Talk Vaccines is the book to help you help your patients.
