National Vaccination Reminder Service
The IAP Immunizeindia national vaccination reminder service was successfully launched in July 2012 and many parents are registering for the service everyday.
Hundreds of SMS reminders are already being sent every week.
As illustrated in the images below registration the service is very easy, by simply sending SMS to the national shortcode 566778 from the parent's mobile phone-
Immunize <Space> <Baby’s pet name or first name> < Space> <Baby’s date of birth>
Immunize Rekha 25-03-2012
Three free of cost and timely reminders will be sent for each vaccination, for 12 years, as per the IAPCOI vaccination schedule.
An example of a reminder that is sent to the phone is - "Vaccination OPV2 Measles dose is due for Rekha this week. Please do not forget to take your baby to the doctor.”
Reminders do not advertise, recommend or promote any vaccine brands or products. Reminders also never mention the name of any doctor. This is a non-profit, free service, supported only by grants and donations from individuals and institutions.
They will get timely reminders to visit you for immunization of their child.
Let us use the service to increase immunization rates and fulfill our mission of serving the children of India.
