    Reviews

    Jennifer Keelan, Department of Public Health, Concordia University of Edmonton:

    "Public Health in the Age of Anxiety beautifully captures a tangled web of features and factors that contribute to the suboptimal use of immunizations. The authors demonstrate considerable expertise and sophistication in their respective analyses of this newsworthy subject matter, and fill an important gap in the literature. It is a valuable resource for any professional involved in immunization, and provides the best, bar none, overview of the issue in all its complexity."
