Canadian Minister of Health Rona Ambrose, the Canadian Public Health Association (CPHA), Immunize Canada, and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute have launched a mobile vaccine application for consumers, available free at the iTunes app store and Google Play.

The agencies say ImmunizeCA will help parents store and manage their families’ vaccination records and easily access their provincial or territorial vaccination schedule, as well as find timely and accurate information on the benefits of vaccination. The mobile app also provides local outbreak alert notifications and vaccination resources, as well as schedules and tools regarding children, adults and travelers.

The Public Health Agency of Canada says that, in addition to reliable and up-to-date, expert-approved, bilingual health information, the app offers appointment reminders and other information specific to people’s home province or territory.

It was developed collaboratively, with funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada, by CPHA, Immunize Canada and the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute.
