New pilot project in Ottawa offers mobile solution for immunization reporting

“This pilot is the beginning of the next generation of immunization systems, where mobile technologies empower people to hold and share their family’s vaccination records,” states Dr. Kumanan Wilson, who is Senior Scientist at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute, an internal medicine specialist at The Ottawa Hospital and a professor at the University of Ottawa. “It will help public health teams get the information they need to better protect the public from vaccine-preventable diseases.”

This new test feature is being launched during National Immunization Awareness Week, which runs from April 25 to May 2, 2015. For more information, please visit
