Text message reminders to promote influenza vaccination to at-risk groups

We are piloting this system in doctors’ offices to see whether these reminders increase the number of individuals who get vaccinated each year. I am particularly interested to see how text reminders can improve influenza vaccine uptake in pregnant women, especially considering its recent success in the US.
