NSW Health releases update to Save the Date to Vaccinate app

NSW Health has updated its Save the Date to Vaccinate app, which provides a schedule of childhood immunisations and sends alerts to parents when a shot is due.

First launched in 2013 to back up the state's vaccination campaign, the app has been redesigned and contains new features, including the July 2018 NSW immunisation schedule and the ability to see the whole family's vaccinations in one view.

Kate, this is an interesting read. I have been enrolled in a NSW (? government) flu vaccination reminder system for several years that pops up in y email box pre-winter and continues through to Spring. Is this App related and is it connected to any 'core' eHealth system (EMR). Hopefully one that began at birth for the child. In essence I am asking is it an 'isolated App', is the data standardised and interoperable?

Hi Terry. This app was designed for the childhood immunisation schedule so it's not related to the adult flu program.

NSW Health is working on a child health EHR at the moment but this app is really just a reminder and alerts system. The upgrade does let you see your kid's vaccination history though, so it is useful.
