The Ardens Adult Immunisations template facilitates the recording of immunisations to adult patients.


Please note that Ardens has created separate templates for InjectionsChildhood Immunisations and Travel Vaccinations.


Access the Adult Immunisations template in the patient record in one of the following ways:

  • Click on the Run Template option within the consultation.
  • Click on the Add > Data using Template option outside of a consultation. 


Clicking on either of the options above will display the Template Picker screen. 


Search for the 'Adult Immunisations' template using the search box provided or via the folder navigation pane. Select the template and click on OK.


The template has been broken down by pages on the left-hand side to make it easy to navigate to the information you require. 


The All immunisations page allows you to record that the patient has given full consent for the immunisation, and that they have received advice regarding the immunisation.


The PSD/PGD page firstly allows the user to view authorisations that are already in place. To see which medication or immunisation the PSD or PGD is for, click on the chevon (arrows) icon and view the details on the right-hand panel.  Please ensure that the PSD or PGD is there for medication that is to be administered. 


The second section allows a clinician to record a new PSD/PGD authorisation, including all relevant details of preparation, dose and route.  


The third section allows the person administering the immunisation to record the dose, route and frequency of that procedure.

 The template shows individual pages for immunisations in the left panel.   


Click on the relevant page to record the administration of the immunisation.   Each page has sections for indications, contraindications, consent, immunisation procedure and aftercare advice.


The following shows the Shingles immunisation page with procedure section highlighted:


Select the tick box for the vaccination to be administered and then complete the boxes for manufacturer, expiry date, batch number and injection site.


Ardens has also created a number of searches and reports relating to adult and child immunisations which you can find here.
