New Tool: Shots Immunizations Mobile App

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM) combined forces to create an immunization app. The Shots Immunizations app, developed by vaccine experts at STFM and AAFP and released March 2018, is designed to serve as a point-of-care reference tool, covering every aspect of the current 2018 immunization schedules (adult, child/adolescent, and catch-up schedules). This easy-to-use, up-to-date app includes information on combination vaccine schedules, dosing schedules, contraindications, potential adverse reactions, CPT codes, and much more.

This app is included in the AAFP mobile app as a stand-alone app. It’s available free for iPhone, iPad, and Android devices. Download Shots Immunizations on iTunes or Google Play.
