Use this API to send and receive messages about changes to a patient's vaccination details, including:
- new vaccinations
- updated vaccination details
- deleted vaccination details
We share information about these events, using a publication-subscription model, with healthcare workers in other organisations such as GPs, Emergency Departments and Local Authorities.
To send messages, use this API. To receive these messages you'll need to subscribe to them via National Events Management Service (NEMS).
For example, when a GP system records a vaccination, it sends an event message containing the vaccination details to NEMS. NEMS then sends the message to all healthcare workers who have subscribed to receive vaccination event messages.
