Local vaccination services are recording vaccinations using the Outcomes4Health system, provided by Pinnacle. Vaccination records are then shared with the National Immunisation Management Service (NIMS), the national register for COVID-19 vaccinations. Primary Care Networks have full access to NIMS. Notifications are then also shared with the general practices patients are registered with.
