Recording Covid 19 vaccination data in Scotland

January 23, 2021

In this episode, we discuss the options for recording Covid-19 vaccination data in Scotland. Options for GPs are to use templates or guidelines provided by your GP IT system (EMIS or Vision), or to use the TURAS Vaccine Management Tool.

Janet Binnie is an eHealth facilitator in NHS Forth Valley, and a member of the Change Advisory Board. Dr Ian Thompson @ianmthompson is a GP in East Lothian and is Primary Care Clinical Lead in Digital Health and Care at Scottish Government and they have both been involved recently in describing the information requirements for collection of vaccination data for Covid-19 in Scotland. We discuss the practical issues involved for those recording vaccination data in Primary Care, as the immunisation programme gathers momentum.
