Welcome to the VaxtextSM Program
VaxtextSM is a mobile text program for busy parents and caregivers
that helps keep your child on track with the vaccine schedule recommended by the
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
The program is endorsed by Every Child by Two, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to improving awareness of the importance of timely immunizations. VaxtextSM messages help parents keep their kids 0-24 months of age on the recommended vaccination schedule.
