PneumoRecs VaxAdvisor is available for download on iOS and Android mobile devices.

The PneumoRecs VaxAdvisor mobile app helps vaccination providers quickly and easily determine which pneumococcal vaccines a patient needs and when. The app incorporates recommendations for all ages so internists, family physicians, pediatricians, and pharmacists alike will find the tool beneficial.

Users simply:

  • Enter a patient’s age.
  • Note if the patient has specific underlying medical conditions.
  • Answer questions about the patient’s pneumococcal vaccination history.

Then the app provides patient-specific guidance consistent with the immunization schedule recommended by the U.S. Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP).
