Identify priority patients due for a booster shot
ATAGI has recommended that all at risk patients who have received 2 doses of vaccine 6 months or more ago are eligible for a booster shot.
Any at risk patients as identified in the COVID-19 at risk report
This report relies, among other details, on coded diagnoses in the patient record. As this is a requirement for accreditation and is also relevant for PIP-QI, we recommend to improve
CAT Starting Point:
- Use the date range result filter to exclude any COVID-19 vaccines given less than six months ago:
In the example above my data is from the 1/11/2021. To only see patients who have received their vaccine six months or more ago I applied a date range filter that will show only those vaccines given after the 1/11/2020 (the exact date is not important, but it needs to be set to before the start of vaccine rollout) and the 'to' date needs to be six or more months from the date of your extract. In my case 1/11/2021 - six months is 1/05/2021.
Apply the filter by clicking on the recalculate icon on the top right of your screen:
- Click on the Immunisations/COVID-19/At Risk tab to see the COVID-19 at Risk report
- Then click on the Dose 2 Astrazeneca, Dose 2 Pfizer and Dose 2 Unknown in the legend to select only those patients who had 2 vaccines already
