New Desktop Software for Keeping Kids on Track with Immunizations

Researchers have released downloadable scheduling software that and helps get kids back on the immunization schedule if they miss shots. Once a child falls behind on the immunization schedule, it can be difficult to catch up and figure out when to start future vaccines while following guidelines recommendations. Designed at the Georgia Institute of Technology in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the Catch-Up Immunization Scheduler is designed for pediatricians, parents, and health care workers to help keep children six years of age and younger on childhood immunization schedules. It can be downloaded to any desktop.

The software and easy download instructions are available on the CDC Web site.
