Immunisation Searches

 

This utility generates a printable list of all the Immunisations performed over a selected period of time. The printed form is accepted by Queensland Health for notification of Immunisations. If you are practicing in Queensland, the Vaccination Service Provider (VSP) number must be included on the print out. The VSP number can be entered via Practice Options.
