The system is currently being implemented and by 2021 any mother should be able to request electronic immunization records at health centers in every region of the country.
“This is good news for all us, as it’s going to really help and will take a load off our minds,” said Edith Chavarria, the mother of four-month old twins who is from a rural area..
Ingrid Ardaya, head nurse of a pilot immunization center that is implementing the EIR says the new system is one hundred percent reliable, due to the accuracy of children’s vaccination data.
“In addition to the Electronic Registry, an Android app for cell phones is being developed that will remind mothers of the date when they should return to complete the vaccine doses for their children,” she explains..
The app is still being developed by Ministry of Health technical personnel and is expected that to be in use throughout the country by 2021
The EIR is truly a major breakthrough that will help better protect the health of Bolivian children.
