Save the Date to Vaccinate
By NSW Ministry of Health
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
The very popular ‘Save the Date to Vaccinate’ app is an easy-to-use reminder tool to help parents ensure their children are vaccinated on time. Just enter your child’s name, date of birth and postcode and the app creates a personalised immunisation schedule and sends you a series of reminders when it’s time to book appointments.
The app is intended as a planning and reminder tool. Complete records of the vaccinations your child has received are available from the Australian Childhood Immunisation Register (ACIR) on 1800 653 809.
What's New in Version 2.0.2
Some users with older versions of the app may experience issues with data transferring to this latest version. If you think that this may apply to you, please write down the vaccination details for any profiles before downloading this latest version so that you can manually recreate your child’s profile to ensure reminders are up to date. NSW Health apologises for any inconvenience caused and thanks users who provided comments about this issue. We will continue to monitor the App Store comments so that we can review and action your feedback quickly.
The app has been updated based on your feedback:
• We’ve added the ability to create profiles for adolescents and adults
• You can now manually add vaccines to a profile
• Pregnant women can add their due date and receive reminders for whooping cough vaccination (recommended at 28 weeks)
• We’ve added links directly to disease information on the NSW Health website
• We’ve added a range of new white noise sound tracks
• General bug fixes and performance improvements
Thank you for using the Save the Date to Vaccinate app.
Wipes data after each app update - don't bother
This app is not only annoying, but it's dangerous and potentially putting young lives at risk. For the 3rd time now, I've lost all my daughter's records due to the App being updated. For this reason, it's unreliable and dangerous because it doesn't provide the alerts and reminders that are being promoted. Luckily for me, all my bub's records are in her Blue Book, but others may not be as lucky. I will not only never use this app again, but I will actively tell every parent to not use it as well. The Dept of Health would be better off removing the app and letting us figure out our own way to safely store our records and reminders.
I used to think this app was great, until it updated then I lost all my child's vaccination data. I have all the dates in his blue book so I still know when vaccinations were completed. But if I hadn't checked the app and found his profile was no longer there, I may have missed the reminder about his upcoming vaccinations. Wondering why I even bothered getting this app if it deletes profiles with app updates. Funny how hospitals recommend you download it when you have a baby. What's the point if you keep losing information and won't get reminders on your phone?!
Again this freezes on the start up screen now since I updated and I need to use it as I have a 7 week old. Useless app now it's been updated. Why mess with something if it's not broken. I used this app with my now 2 year old and it was a god send as it kept me on track with his vaccinations now I can't even use it for my infant and he has vaccinations due at 4 months and i can't see the exact date they are due cause your app isn't working again..
