Ontarians’ COVID-19 vaccination information is being made available through the DHDR for patients with a valid Ontario Health Card Number (HCN).

COVID vaccination information is viewable in ClinicalConnect to organizations authorized to view data from the DHDR and displays in the Pharmacy Module/Home Med Drugs tab as shown below.

To access this data:

1. Select the Pharmacy module.

2. Select the Pharmacy module then select the Home Med Drugs tab.

The vaccination information includes first and second dose information if available.

 

 COVID-19 vaccination data fields will include specific information related to the administration of the vaccine to the patient and may not include data in select fields such as Therapeutic Class and Subclass.

The table below describes the data columns in more detail.

If COVaxON information cannot be retrieved, an informational message will display as follows: “COVID-19 Immunization Information is not available at this time”. This does not necessarily mean the patient has not received a vaccination. ClinicalConnect users should click the Refresh button in ClinicalConnect, or check back later, as this may result in the successful retrieval and display of the information.

 

If a patient has been administered a COVID-19 vaccine for a second time, the results will display together with a dropdown arrow. The most recent vaccination will display first.

 

 A patient’s record may have a consent directive applied in DHDR, the Home Med Drugs and Home Med Services tabs. In this case, the COVID-19 vaccination information will not display unless the access is unblocked by a physician.  Please refer to the section,  Viewing Home Meds or Services with a Consent Directive for additional details.

 

NOTE: At the time of COVID-19 vaccination, if a patient does not provide consent to share their information, it is not entered into COVaxON. In this case, a record of the vaccination is not available in COVaxON or the DHDR.

The custom DHDR reports will also contain any COVID-19 vaccination data which can be generated by clicking the Reports icon in the module banner.
