Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know

It is easier than ever to get health information; sometimes, however, it’s difficult to weed out the “good” information (which is scientifically accurate) from the “bad” information (which is not based on science). This is especially true for vaccines.

In a continued effort to provide the public with information about the science, safety and importance of vaccines, The Vaccine Education Center at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (VEC) created Vaccines on the Go: What You Should Know so busy parents can access the information wherever and whenever they need it.

Attention Android users! If you downloaded the Android version of the VEC mobile app prior to May 7, 2015, please delete it and re-download a new version using the button below in order to keep receiving updates. A technical issue required resubmission of the app to the Google Play Store. The VEC apologizes for the inconvenience.

Watch a short video of Dr. Offit describing the features of the vaccine mobile app.
