Vaccination API standards
API standards for the information you must provide to NHS Digital relating to coronavirus (COVID-19) and seasonal flu 2020-21 vaccinations.
Use these API standards to understand what information you must provide to us at NHS Digital relating to coronavirus (COVID-19) and seasonal flu 2020-21 vaccinations.
These standards specify the flow of vaccination-related information from any healthcare setting including:
hospital hubs - NHS providers vaccinating on site
local vaccine services – community or primary care led services which could include primary care facilities, retail, community facilities, temporary structures or roving teams
vaccination centres – large sites such as sports and conference venues set up for high volumes of people
These standards define the structure and content of the delimited file to send us.
For FHIR standards relating to the flow of information directly back to the patient's GP, see Digital Medicine API standards.
