I see a lot of references to the CDC pink book. I was wondering if it is only available online or if there is a way to get a hard copy of it.

I think all of it's available online. You can google specific diseases and find the pink book chapters on them.<br><a href="http://www.google.com/search?sourceid=navclient&ie=UTF-8&rls=GGLJ,GGLJ:2006-49,GGLJ:en&q=%22pink+book%22+diphtheria" target="_blank">http://www.google.com/search?sourcei...%22+diphtheria</a><br><br>
Appendix G is really useful, too.<br><br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/pink/Appendices/appdx-full-g.pdf" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/...pdx-full-g.pdf</a><br><br>
(for fun, follow pertussis vaccination coverage and then compare it to reported cases over the years, for example)

One problem with having a hard copy is that it would never stay current because they keep adding vaxes/"VPD's" to it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:.<br><br>
I think you could download and print it if you required a hard copy.

They do make a hard copy - not sure how to get it though.<br><br>
I found one from 1994 a while back at the thrift store & only paid .99 for it!

Here's the whole thing listed out in PDF:<br><a href="http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/pink/def_pink_full.htm" target="_blank">http://www.cdc.gov/nip/publications/..._pink_full.htm</a><br><br>
(I got this from the Delayed/Selective Forum, I think.)<br><br>
Cheers!
