2014 CDC Vaccine Schedules app for clinicians and other health care professionals offers you immediate access to CDC’s latest recommended immunization schedules. See childhood, adolescent, adult and catch-up vaccine schedules and footnotes on your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch devices. Download this free app from the iTunes App Store.
While it's a great app, some limitations exist, specifically:
- "No functionality to input a child’s age and current vaccines to get a personalized catch-up vaccine list." (the CDC web-based interactive vaccine catch-up site does offer personalized catch-up lists)
- No "ability to print, email or open the links and embedded PDFs in any other app."
- "...while the app has a useful list of contraindications and precautions to commonly used adult vaccines, there is no analogue for pediatric vaccines — users have to look within each vaccine individually to find that data, which is not available for every vaccine."
Overall, it's about time the CDC came up with a mobile version of their vaccine schedules. It remains to be seen how fast it will update when new schedules are issued, which as you know, change every year.
