Vaccination Chart

Send a SMS to 566778 from your mobile phone-Immunize < Space> for timely reminder. A service by the National Immunization Reminder Program.

Your pediatrician will give you a vaccination tracker and this is part of every baby’s file. Typically your pediatrician will let you know as to the next time you need to come in for the vaccination and will mark it in this chart.

However, in our busy life we might often forget the date. Below are certain tips to help you keep track of your baby’s vaccination.

Place the vaccination chart or a copy of the vaccination chart in place which is in plain sight. For eg. On the refrigerator door or on your office desk.

Schedule it on your phone and set a reminder at least 48 h prior to the date so that you have ample time to call up and schedule the doctor visit.

Ask the receptionist at your doctors if they could give you a reminder call.

You can sign up for email reminders at certain websites who will send you a reminder.

You can also setup an SMS alert on your mobile phone via The Indian Academy of Pediatrics website that will result in timely SMS reminders on essential vaccines sent to your mobile phone till 12 years of age.
