Recording Vaccinations

For details on how to import the tools, to set the batch numbers and expiry dates on the flu and pneumococcal protocols, please see the following support articles for Template Manager and Resource Publisher sites.


Please note in order to run the F12 protocol, you must ensure the Flu Vaccine Administration 2021-22 protocol is added to your F12 launcher


To use the Seasonal Immunisations tools, whilst in a consultation, press the F12 key to bring up the protocol launcher. 



Then simply double-click on the ‘Flu Vaccine Administration 2021-22’ protocol.


The protocol should run NOTE it does not check for eligibility:



Once eligibility confirmed, or once 9OX4 added if required, choose the option 'Eligible for NHS vaccine and has consented' and then simply use the picking lists to record the administration of the relevant vaccine(s). 



Once the flu protocol has run, the Pneumococcal protocol will run automatically afterwards. 



Please ensure that you SAVE the consultation to record the data on the patient's record.


Please remember to ensure you have double-checked for allergies and contraindications and that you are giving the appropriate vaccine for the patient in front of you.
