Vaccine service links with GP practices in Wales

Vaccine data collected on the Welsh Immunisation System (WIS) is now available to GPs via the Primary Care Information Portal (PCIP) and is updated four times a day.

Alongside this, training and support is being offered to primary care colleagues across Wales to ensure they are able to use the system correctly. NWIS has provided on-hand support at 16 of the 24 sites with a blend of training on WIS and created and delivered e-learning modules for vaccinators, including content specifically designed for GPs using WIS.

The WIS is currently supporting both the Oxford AstraZeneca and Pfizer/BioNTech vaccines, and is enabled to support any future vaccines that are approved.

Individuals will be contacted by their health board or GP practice when they are eligible for a vaccine.
