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.
