Save the Date to Vaccinate
New app helps parents to ‘save the date to vaccinate’
On-time vaccination is a child’s best protection against serious diseases. If children are not up to date with their vaccinations, it can also impact enrolment in child care and access to family assistance payments.
NSW Health has released an improved Save The Date To Vaccinate app. This free app helps parents and carers stay on top of their child’s immunisations by creating a personalised immunisation schedule and helpful reminder notifications for when their child’s vaccinations are due.
This app makes it easier to keep kids protected from serious preventable diseases, which also protects the broader community. In NSW, over 94% of children are fully immunised while 95% is necessary for sustained control of vaccine preventable diseases (known as ‘her immunity’).
The free Save The Date To Vaccinate app can be downloaded on Apple or Android devices here.
We encourage you to make your patients and networks aware of this vaccination reminder tool.
New app to help parents ‘save the date to vaccinate’
On-time vaccination is your child’s best protection against serious diseases. If children are not up to date with their vaccinations, it can also impact enrolment in child care and access to family assistance payments.
NSW Health has just released an improved Save The Date To Vaccinate app. This app helps you stay on top of your child’s immunisations and makes it easier for you to keep your child protected from serious preventable diseases.
Simply download the app, set up your child’s profiles and the app will create your family’s recommended immunisation schedules, along with handy reminders for when vaccines are due.
A childhood immunisation rate of 95% is necessary to control preventable diseases (known as ‘herd immunity’). While over 94% of children in NSW are fully immunised, over 105,000 babies are born in NSW every year so it’s really important that all parents know to vaccinate their children on time. By vaccinating, you’re protecting your child as well as people in the community who can’t be vaccinated themselves – including children with serious illnesses like cancer.
The free Save the Date to Vaccinate app can be downloaded on Apple or Android devices here.
