Please see the following support video on how to code the COVID vaccine information quickly to the patient record if you choose to do this.


Please note - EMIS Web now has the ability to auto-code Pinnacle vaccine information, practices do not need to duplicate coding.

Please note the F12 protocol mentioned in the above video is only available for Resource Publisher sites. If you are a Template Manager site, please see instructions below on how to create a F12 protocol to launch the Ardens COVID Vaccination Template.
