Coronavirus Update - England only (21st December 2021)

We can now confirm that Moderna Half Dose and Overseas vaccination data from national vaccination systems are being imported and written back to your patient’s record. We will continue to import this data daily.

  • Patients receiving the Moderna Half Dose have an immunisation and a medical history entry added to their patient record, for example:
    • Immunisation Entry of '65F0100 Administration of first dose of SARS-CoV-2 vaccine':
    • Medical History Entry of '65F0800 Immunisation course to maintain protection against SARS-CoV-2':
  • Patients who have received a vaccination Overseas have an immunisation entry automatically added to their patient record with the country where the vaccination was given provided in the notes.
    An example of this is an Immunisation Entry of '65F0100 Administration of first dose of SARS-CoV-2 vaccine':

Important - While all systems are being updated to include a third dose vaccination, NHS Digital have taken the decision to record these as a maintenance/booster dose. The same process, outlined above, is used for recording a third dose of the vaccine for Immunosuppressed patients. We are awaiting further information from NHS Digital with regards to any future changes. See JCVI issues advice on third dose vaccination for severely immunosuppressed for more information. 

Note - We are working on importing vaccination data for 5 – 11 year olds and we will update you here when this is due to start.
