Recently, Union Health Minister Dr. Harsh Vardhan expressed the government’s seriousness in achieving total immunisation in India. He mentioned that over 14 lakh children in the age group of 1-5 years die every year due to preventable diseases like pneumonia and diarrhea, and the Health Ministry plans to tackle this problem head on.

In the hustle and bustle of your daily schedule, things tend to slip your mind. However, when it comes to vaccinating your little one, you just can’t afford to miss it. It’s critical to protect your child from potential health hazards by following the immunisation schedule as mandated by your pediatrician.

Wouldn’t it be great if someone reminded you in time for the next immunization? Soon you will have that help from none other than your doctor. Your doctor will be able to send you timely reminders, and also generate computerised records of all your child’s immunisations. This way, you will never miss immunising your loved ones. What’s more – your child’s immunisation records are computerised, so you no longer have to carry the immunisation card on every visit to the clinic.

With that in mind, Practo has been working closely with doctors and parents to understand their immunisation-related challenges. Very soon, we will have a solution that ensures that children are vaccinated on time and parents have one less thing to worry about.
