Hi all,

just stumbling in late, sorry for that, but perhaps better late than

> I think that the GNU Health vaccine / immunization data model 

Just some general remarks for the model:

I would indeed stick to the name 'immunization' for the model, because it can
be used as well for allergen immunotherapy[1]. That said it is IMO more correct
to name at least the views 'Immunization' instead of 'Vaccination'.

Agreed. Currently covered by 'dose' (Integer), but would indeed be better to
have a unit.

> Vaccine Administration Site - Upper arm

Shouls be covered by admin_route (Route).

> Vaccine Manufacturer - Glaxo

This is a property of the vaccine. The same applies for
vaccine_lot and vaccine_expiration_date (where vaccine_expiration_date could be
a property of the lot).
I would move those fields on their respective models and display them as
function fields.

Field 'observations' could be Text instead of Char. Generally, but especially
when doing hypo-sensitisation, it is most important to fix the reactions of the
patient, so I would even make it required (as well as field 'date').

Just my 2ยข,
thx to gnuhealth devs for their great work!
