Our prototype version has a dedicated page for each visit the caregiver makes to the clinic with the child. The page will have the photo from the visit as well as all of the vaccines administered on that date. The page will also have the current date and a future date for the caregivers to return to the clinic for future rounds of vaccinations. The front pages of the photo album will have information about immunizations, why they are important, and how we can take pre-emptive measure to prevent diseases from occurring in the future.
Thank you for your interest in our project and your kind words!
Hi Karine, thank you for taking your time to review our idea. While the photos themselves do not carry any information, the back of the photo will have the current date and the date of the next immunization cycle. In addition, we proposed a visual brochure of the immunization process. The brochure may be explained by a local healthcare worker visiting families and telling them about immunizations. This verbal explanation coupled with the visuals by the brochure may help tackle the language barriers. Also the brochure will have pockets in them for the mothers to keep the photos in one place. We will keep in mind about the issue of mothers not wanting to be photographed. But the brochure may still be useful in delivering information regarding immunization to families.
Thank you for your feedback. The duration may vary because of the different immunization schedules. We want to see if the mothers, after a good first immunization experience will return for their next cycle of immunizations. For most vaccines, the schedule is at 2 months, 2nd dosage at 4 months, and 3rd dose at 6 ~ 15 months. Therefore, we updated the length of time to 6 months.
