The Utah Department of Health is helping busy parents... remember. The health department has developed an email service, which will automatically sends out an email reminding parents what immunizations their children need and when they should get them.

"For years, we have advised parents to immunize children on time," says Linda Abel, Immunization Program Manager, UDOH. "Approximately 20 percent of Utah's two-year-olds are under-immunized and under-protected. It is obvious from Utah's low immunization levels that children are not getting adequately immunized and now, the electronic immunization reminder service will help busy parents stay on track."

Parents can register with just a child's birth date and a current email address. It is not necessary to provide any other personal information such as the parent's or child's name.

Immunization Hotline: 1-800-275-0659.
