Interesting Apps:

ChildrensMD Developed by Children's Hospital Colorado allows parents to look up their child’s symptoms.  After finding their symptoms, the app brings up a menu with advice and information on when/who to call, depending on the severity of the symptom, and has tips for home care. Unfortunately, it is currently only available for iOS (Apple) devices. 

Vaccines on the Go Created by Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), it’s an unbiased app that has everything parents would possibly want to know about vaccines. There are schedules for vaccines based on the child’s age, as well as descriptions of each vaccine, and what infections they prevent. There is a section on vaccine safety, including information on different vaccine components including preservatives and adjuvants. The app also has over 50 videos regarding information on vaccines and infections from the nation’s top pediatricians and infectious disease specialists. Unfortunately, it is currently only available for iOS (Apple) devices.
