Thank you for sharing. I think it is great having these types of tools to better identify which vaccines each kid needs, in this current complex envirorment of new vaccines, delays, etc. Are the use cases sharable? 

To ask to other TechNet-21 users, in your settings, do you have immunization clinical decision support tools in your electronic immunization registries? Does the Bogota, Argentina, Chile or other e-Registries have this function?
