About this app

Get vaccine information—Anytime. Anywhere. Find videos, animations & graphics. Ask us questions. Info includes safety, diseases, immune system & more.

It is easier than ever to get health information. But sometimes, it’s difficult to weed out the “good” information (which is scientifically accurate) from the “bad” information (which is not based on science). This is especially true for vaccines.

In a continued effort to provide the public with information about the science, safety and importance of vaccines, the Vaccine Education Center at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (VEC) created Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know so busy parents can access the information wherever and whenever they need it.

Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know contains information about:
• Vaccines and the diseases they prevent
• Recommended immunization schedules for children, teens and adults
• Vaccine safety concerns, including autism, thimerosal and too many vaccines
• How the immune system works, including what happens during an infection or when a person is immune compromised
• Disease and vaccine information related to travel, including descriptions of cholera, Japanese encephalitis virus, typhoid and yellow fever

Additional features include:
• Graphics depicting disease characteristics, such as levels of contagiousness and typical disease timelines
• Links to videos about vaccines, including animations related to how viruses attack cells, maternal antibodies and immunizations, and more
• Vaccine-related trivia
• A place to record notes or questions for the next doctor’s visit
• Ways to stay connected with the VEC, including sending us vaccine-related questions or signing up for Parents PACK, our free monthly e-newsletter
• Links to other online VEC resources, like booklets and Q&A sheets

This version of the Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know mobile application is optimized for Android Devices running Android 4.1.x or more recent versions of Android releases.

Needs a few updates but most information is still current. I like the graphic representations of how contagious the vaccine preventable diseases are. Works well and is easy to navigate.

I searched for an app that gives COVID-19 vaccine education and I could find this in a few minutes. In addition to text based information, app has great video testimonials from patients and hospital employees why they chose to get vaccinated. Well rounded resource. Instead of stating the benefits of vaccine after listing all side effects, my suggestion would be to move it up to show on first screen. Videos with people and cartoons appealing to those with limited health literacy. Stay safe ❣

Loads of trivia and no real information needed to make an educated decision as to safety and ingredients. Designed to pursued the lazy and stupid to take the most dangerous vax around. No scientific data of any use on here, but loaded with nonesense. I just want the vax, formulas used and manufacturers for the various versions as well as side effects related and to which ingredients. I want to know what vax have dead baby cels in them and what carcinogens and at what levels. I cant find
