We understand that the claim searches for pneumococcal vaccinations are not being extracted and we have been asked to create appropriate searches.

We can create one for PNEU001 (over 65s) and one for PNEU003 (those with the 'requires vaccination' code on their record but we are unable to create accurate searches for the 'at risk' cohort, as there are some 7000 at risk codes involved.

However, we have created a search which is:

'All patients who are under 65, who have had their first vaccine in the last month and who do not have the 'needs pneumococcal vaccine' code on their record'.

Practices can use this list as a basis for a claim, reviewing patient records to check eligibility as required.

We have also created a search to assist with claiming for any 2nd vaccines administered ('Vaccination last month, not accounted for').

To access the searches, navigate to the Population Reporting module > Ardens Searches > 1.3 Ardens Main Searches >CQRS and SMI > Monthly - Manual CQRS 2020-21 > Pneumo (PPV) 2020-21

As with all our CQRS searches, these look for activity 'last month' so please run with a 'relative run date' after the month you are reporting on. 

Thus to report on September I would 'Run' the search and choose 'Advanced options' and set the date for any date in October:
