The Maternal Immunizations or MatImms app is a brand new mobile app, developed by a group of researchers from Imperial College London and the Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, that is designed to make it easier to remind pregnant women about the vaccines that they should be taking during pregnancy.

The app includes a personalized vaccination schedule based on the due date, and offers all kinds of information about vaccines and their effects on babies.

Maternal immunization is a very important process, however research has shown that many pregnant women do not take the recommended vaccines, and that poor doctor communication and a lack of effective education is behind this problem.

This is exactly what the MatImms app tackles. By providing easy-to-access and understandable information on a handy smartphone interface, the app ensures that pregnant women stay in the loop regarding their vaccines.
