Can I record a Booster vaccination for a patient who has had their first and second doses administered outside of England?
Yes, however, please be aware that the primary doses will not appear within the NIMS (National Immunisation Management Service) record in the patient journal. When recording the vaccination, a warning message may show indicating a Primary Dose has not been administered. However, this will not prevent you from recording the Booster if it is clinically safe to do so. You may also advise the patient to call 119 (Vaccination Data Resolution Service (VDRS)) to request for their Primary doses to be added to their GP record.
