Vaccine Not Showing On The List

Firstly, ensure that you have the latest vaccines available by importing the vaccines setup (Administration > System Configuration > Health Records > Import Vaccine Setup).

Check that the vaccine you're after is not on the Schedule Product Exclusion list (Administration > System Configuration > Health Records > Immunisation Schedule Product Exclusion) and rectify if need be.

If the disease for which the vaccine immunises against is not on the list in the immunisation section of Health Records, you may scroll down to the 'miscellaneous disease' section under the 'birth or not scheduled' column, tick the box and hit next as you usually would to enter an immunisation.

Please note that you cannot alter the 'vaccine' or 'product' fields, but may enter the Batch number, Dose, and the name of the appropriate disease and vaccination in the notes field.
