Children Immunization Data Will Be Recorded in PeduliLindungi App
As a part of digital transformation on health sector, the Government through Ministry of Health Affairs will start digitalizing data of children in Indonesia who received immunization and integrate it in PeduliLindungi app.
Minister of Health Affairs Budi Gunadi Sadikin, Friday (05/13), said that the data will be recorded in digital form to provide easy access for parents to their children’s immunization record anytime anywhere.
Unlike the mother and child health handbook (KIA book) which have been used as a tool to record the growth of children including immunization record, the digitalized data could not be physically lost or damaged for decades.
He added that the Ministry is making several preparations to adopt the system.
“Currently, it is under preparation. We expect it will be ready to be used in the near future and to support increasing children immunization coverage,” he said. (BPMI of Presidential Secretariat/UN) (RAS/LW)
