VaxOnTime app – Immunisation Reminders for Parents and Carers

VaxOnTime has been developed by the Victorian Department of Health & Human Services to help remind parents and carers in Victoria when immunisations for their children is due.

An estimated 20 per cent of parents simply forget to vaccinate their children on time. The VaxOnTime app can support parents to meet the legislative requirements under the No Jab No Play laws, by reminding them when vaccinations are due, assisting them to locate and book appointments with immunisation providers and access quality-assured information about vaccines on the Better Health Channel.

This free app is available on iOS, Android and Windows mobile phones.
