When you are ready to submit to the App Store there are artifacts that must accompany the submission to Apple. The review process itself takes a variable amount of time and can range from anywhere from two to four weeks for first time app submissions.  Please be sure to account for this time period in your project plan. 

Note that you can add an attachment by using Add=>Attachment or by just dragging a file to the page.  Put the image files into folders and zip into a single file works the best. To review the attached files, using Add=>Attachment.

There is a lot of information available about vaccines and vaccination, and there are many mobile apps related to vaccines. However, there are few apps designed by trusted academic experts that can be rapidly updated for both routine use and emergency situations, such as outbreaks.

ReadyVax is a new app that contains up-to-date information about vaccines and vaccination. With regularly updated data on vaccine recommendations and vaccine safety, and the ability to notify users in real-time of important vaccine information, ReadyVax is your trusted source for evidence-based information about vaccines. We have designed ReadyVax to be used by both health care providers and health care users, and users can customize the presentation of data, with a single click, to suit their information needs.

Every time you start the app, the latest information is downloaded into your copy. This information will be accessible even if you lose network connectivity. The ReadyVax team constantly monitors vaccine recommendations to make sure the most up-to-date information is there for you.

Key features of ReadyVax:

-For every vaccine, we have documented who should get the vaccine, the recommended schedule and the safety profile.

-Descriptions of the diseases prevented by these vaccines.

-A personalized immunization scheduler to keep track of recommended vaccines (based on CDC recommendations)

-Answers to frequently asked questions about vaccines and vaccine safety.

-Real-time breaking news alerts and updates about vaccines and vaccine-preventable diseases.

-Links to resources about vaccines, vaccine safety, and vaccine recommendations from trusted sources.

-One-click customization of information for health care users or health care providers.

-A causality of adverse event algorithm to support providers' decision maker

Review Notes (Optional) - Additional information about your app that can help during the review process. Include information that may be needed to test your app, such as app-specific settings and test registration or account details. The Review Notes field must not exceed 4000 bytes

The main settings in ReadyVax relate to user role. While the underlying content is the same for each user role (patient/parent, physician, pharmacist, public health practitioner), the writing style and level of complexity is modified to address differences in users' baseline knowledge. At first install, the user will be prompted to choose a role, which will guide the information content they are directed to. However, in the app settings, the user role can be changed to view any content in the app. Some links in the app are directed to .pdf files so access to a PDF reader will be required to visit those external documents. No individual user accounts need to be created except to use the personalized immunization tracker.
