To make sure that your baby doesn’t suffer from polio, hepatitis, typhoid, and other diseases, you should take care of her/his vaccination. A nursing home will provide an immunization chart to the parents. The chart has information on various vaccines that a doctor should give to your child. Use a vaccine reminder app for Android or iPhone if you have a habit of forgetting things or if both of you are busy at jobs. The iTunes and Play Store has plenty of Immunization apps but none of the renowned health organizations have supported or recommended them. The best way to keep track of vaccines and schedule reminders of the same is by using a to-do list app. I recommend the free Any Do app for this task.
