Abstract

The Center for Disease Control (CDC) distributes Vaccine Information Statements (VIS) documentation to clinician to inform patients of the benefits and risk of the vaccines that are available. The effectiveness of the learning and comprehension has been reported to have been insufficient, particularly with population with lower than average literacy rates. This paper introduces a proof of concept mobile application, driven by a vaccine ontology based on a sample set of VIS documents, as a possible solution.
