mVacciNation complements VIMS by capturing information and delivering immunisations more consistently at the primary-care level. It enables health-care practitioners equipped with tablets or smartphones to view and record patient vaccination histories, schedule upcoming appointments, and report on follow-up visits. Using the same app, health facilities submit regular reports on vaccination stocks in order to prompt new supply shipments when needed.
mVacciNation thus improved reporting between the district health facilities and the community. New mothers who register at a health facility receive automated short message service (SMS) reminders with past and future vaccination dates as well as educational health messages and alerts to disease outbreaks such as cholera.
