A free mobile app to help keep track of your vaccinations

  • updated Apr 1, 2014 at 1:56 PM

Can’t find your youngest one’s vaccination record? Going on a trip and don’t know if you received all the required vaccines? Not to worry. ImmunizeCA, the new free and bilingual mobile app, will help you manage your family’s vaccination records.

Immunization is one of the most important advances in public health. It is estimated to have saved more lives in Canada over the past 50 years than any other public health intervention. Before vaccines became available, many Canadian children died from diseases such as diphtheria, measles and polio, that are now preventable by immunization.

Keeping track of your immunizations is now easier, thanks to ImmunizeCA, a free mobile app available throughout Canada. With funding of almost $450,000 from the Public Health Agency of Canada (the Agency), the app was developed by the Canadian Public Health Association, Immunize Canada and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. The funding is being allocated over three years to develop, promote, update and maintain the app, taking user feedback into account.
