Ottawa Hospital’s new digital tool can help track immunizations

Lately, measles and other vaccine-preventable diseases have been making headlines. With this in mind, The Ottawa Hospital offers a free digital immunization record that allows Canadians to securely manage their immunizations – CANImmunize.

Dr. Kumanan Wilson’s team at The Ottawa Hospital developed the app to allow Canadians to better manage their immunization records. In Ottawa families can even use the app to directly report their children’s immunizations to Ottawa Public Health once their children are enrolled in school.

CANImmunize includes vaccine schedules to help parents stay on top of what vaccines are needed when and was recently referred to by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control as a model for immunization solutions.
