Looking for a resource that has all you need to know about vaccines from a trusted source? The Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know app from The Vaccine Education Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia offers a breadth of information on vaccines in an easy navigable format.
The app includes information about:
- Vaccines and the diseases they prevent, along with potential side effects
- Vaccine safety topics, including autism, vaccine safety monitoring systems, and too many vaccines
- Types of vaccines and how they’re made
- Recommended immunization schedules for children, teens and adults
You can also find a list of vaccine-related videos, such as vaccines for babies, and human papillomavirus and the HPV vaccine.
Many of the topics link to additional online resources from the VEC. For example, you’ll find a Q&A on vaccines and autism if you go to the autism section under Safety. On the same screen, there’s a “notes for the doctor” link to save any questions for a future office visit, or you can email the Vaccine Education Center for answers to vaccine questions.
