Vaccination reminders available through text

New parents can now sign up for text messages that remind them of regular immunizations for babies up to 18 months old.

The text message service by ImmunizeBC can also be used by people of any age who want to be reminded of scheduled immunization appointments, such as vaccines that require multiple doses.

Details of the new service are available at www.immunizebc.ca at the “get text message reminders” link.

The service can be activated from a phone by texting “sign up” to 604-757-2705.

It can be stopped by texting “stop” to the same number, and restarted by sending the message “start.”
