  • A series of short videos recorded by a pediatrician on targeted topics that address the most common immunization questions and concerns.
  • An interactive immunization schedule customized by child’s age
  • Trusted answers to frequently asked questions
  • Breaking news alerts on outbreaks, new research and other important immunization headlines
  • Pediatrician-approved links and resources
  • Ability to share reliable facts and resources with friends and family at the push of a button
