Users can record details of their vaccines, and have those details to hand when needed, either by referring to the app, or emailing a summary.
If you lose your vaccination records, it will cost you time, money, and pain in the arm to have vaccines repeated.
VACCINE RECORD FOR TRAVELLERS also allows users to set reminders, so boosters are not forgotten.
You can even store a photograph of the yellow fever certificate in your device.
There is a paper-based yellow International Vaccine Record book that is carried by travellers world wide. This app is the digital version. This app does not replace the paper version but is a handy tool so vaccine information is always with you in your iPhone or iPad.
This app was developed by Dr Deb Mills, a Travel Medicine specialist for over 20 years.

Ratings and Reviews
Bad Interface and No Password
After struggling with the log on screen, I finally managed to continue. The main problem is that after typing any information, there is no way to dismiss the onscreen keyboard. I like the page showing the full names of the vaccine types since many apps just use the abbreviation without explaining what it is.
The biggest reason this app gets only one star is the lack of a password to access the vaccination records in the app. While there is no connection to a website or other online service, some of this information is protected under HIPAA. There should be a password requirement or encryption option to ensure the privacy of the app users.
Crashes, poor design
This app crashes constantly, is poorly designed, has no password protection, and limited functionality. Last updated in 2014 so it seems there's little support behind it.
Handy but some shortcomings
I am using this to keep track of the immunization records for my 4 children.
Pros: user-friendly interface, can enter multiple individuals, can email records
Cons : no cloud support, cannot see all individuals on one page, Why is there no Haemophilus category (Hib)? This is a basic childhood vaccination and is different from Pneumonia and Influenza!
Biggest con: No way to enter vaccines not listed and no comment box on entry form. For instance, it would be nice on Varicella to enter that the person had a confirmed case of chicken pox.
Overall, it's fine and better than most. It could use some tweaking, though.
