Ohio AAP mobile app about vaccines
The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics and the Ohio Department of Health collaborated to create a free mobile app, Fast Vax Facts. User-friendly for both providers and parents, the app includes videos, an interactive immunization schedule, safety information, and links to reliable resources for additional information, among other features.
The app is available for both Apple and Android devices, and the team has also created a flyer to share with parents.
Developed by an Australian doctor, Vaxcards is a traditional card game designed to educate about the diseases prevented by vaccination. A free starter deck can be downloaded, and full decks can be purchased.
