Quick App: Shots 2010

Hearkening back to an era when PalmOS devices were the rule in hospitals, Palmdoc.net has recently released a port of the incredibly popular vaccine reference app, ‘Shots.’ Shots made its first public appearance as an application on the PalmOS platform over a decade ago and quickly became a must-have app in the healthcare sector. Shots2010 provides all the same useful information in a convenient visual table, including vaccination schedules for children, adolescents and adults, and “catch-up” series for folks who have fallen off track.

This is a full featured port of the original, complete with lots of references. Tapping on a vaccine name brings up a detailed information view with indications, contraindications, disease images and more easily accessed through dropdown menu navigation. There’s even information on adverse reaction reporting available through the main pull down menu of the app. If you’ve worked in healthcare in the last ten years, you probably already know how useful this app is on busy clinic days. Even if you don’t, you can check it out now for free in the app catalog.
