Nearly 2 million children under the age of 5 years die every year in India and an estimated equal number are disabled for life. The Indian Academy of Pediatrics (IAP) estimates that over 50% of these are vaccine preventable.
Owing to the high dropout rates among Indian parents, ImmunizeIndia Charity launched ImmunizeIndia in March 2014, a national non-profit initiative, under the aegis of the IAP. The vaccination reminders are based on the vaccination calendar of IAP which includes the mandatory vaccinations as per the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India. However, the Service also provides reminders for additional vaccinations recommended by IAP.
ImmunizeIndia is the world’s largest vaccination reminder service
ImmunizeIndia is a free of cost vaccination reminder service from IAP. The service is available to parents anywhere in India. ImmunizeIndia has already over 1.5 million children enrolled on its SMS alert service and helps save thousands of children from death or disability already. The service aims to prevent half a million child deaths and disabilities by 2020 by registering 20 million children on the service.
The ImmunizeIndia app has been developed to provide customized reminders to caregivers to ensure that their children are vaccinated on time and complete the mandatory set of immunizations as per the Government of India and IAP.
The ImmunizeIndia app is a simple and easy to use app to help provide customized vaccination reminders to the caregivers (parent). The desired impact of this app is to ensure that children receive all their mandatory vaccinations on time.
The ImmunizeIndia app provides three reminder alerts for the caregiver in the week that the vaccinations are due. The app requires data on both the child and parent or caregiver. It is the responsibility of the registering caregiver to provide the correct information at the time of signing up. The app uses the information provided to schedule the reminder alerts till the child is 12 years old.
