All pharmacies administering COVID-19 and/or influenza vaccinations are required to use the ImmsBC system.
The ImmsBC system supports pharmacies with inventory management, appointment scheduling, patient eligibility screening, patient vaccine administration record management, administration payments, and generating reports on COVID-19 and influenza vaccination activities. It is mandatory for pharmacies to use ImmsBC for COVID-19 and influenza vaccination participation.
The ImmsBC system is linked to the Get Vaccinated patient invitation system, which matches the provincial booking capacity to invitations sent to eligible British Columbians.
Please take the time to review each of the steps and training manuals before launching the COVID-19 vaccine campaign in your pharmacy.
Pharmacies offering online Minor Ailments & Contraception Service (MACS) appointment booking must also use the ImmsBC system.
For MACS the ImmsBC system supports pharmacies with appointment scheduling only and some limited report generation. For MACS the ImmsBC system will not be used for record management or administration of payments.
