I would really like to help with this issue.
It would be great to have a new module to manage vaccines.

The tabular interfaces seems a good option.
Another usefull option would be to be able to group patients with a  due or pending vaccine according to a geographic area in order to be able to plan campaings more easily.

Another important issue is stock control, and being able to trace vaccines lots, refrigeration chain, etc.

In Argentina we have a huge vaccination schedule with more than 12 different vaccines in the first 6 years, son there is a lot of information to process, so is the nurses workload.
This would be a great feature for 2.8 version!

Count me in to work on this

Yes Luis, I agree that the WHO list should be used as a reference resource in
GNU Health.

What about functionality? Some ideas:

When opening the patient
record, a pop up message occurs in GNU Health for all "patients" < 18 years

"Do you want to review / amend this patient's routine immunisation

If yes then a tabular form could appear with the child's immunisation
record to date.

If a date had been passed without the record being "ticked as
administered" then it might have a red background.

Other ideas might be to
produce standard reports which would list all patients due to have vaccines on
a particular day / week. The child health professional could then contact the
family to bring the child into clinic.

I think we both agree that this is very
important GNU Health functionality and is well worth a significant amount of
development time.
