All GPs practices must now enter flu vaccine data manually

Following a ‘range of technical issues’, the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC) said it had been advised by NHS England not to carry out any further automated collections of seasonal flu vaccination data frm any practice for ‘ the remainder of this financial year’.

In addition, practices using EMIS and TPP IT systems will need to enter their pneumococcal vaccination data manually, while EMIS practices will have to do this for both routine and catch-up shingles immunisation data.
