Thank you very much ! This is something very important, and it would be
great to have a "check list", and "alerts" on the child vaccinations. 

So, we could check on the age of the child, and verify against the
current vaccination program.

This module can be generic for immunizations (age independent) or
specific for pediatrics .

Different countries have different immunization programs, and it would
be need to be adapted / localized, but that should be no much of a

I propose, as we did in the medicines list, to use the WHO
recommended current immunization schedule[1], and then each country can
create their own localization.

I see it as a high-priority task for upcoming version.

What do you think ?
