Privacy Notice for National COVID-19 and Flu Vaccination Programmes

NHS England has established a centralised service for the management of both the COVID-19 and seasonal flu vaccination programmes. This service is supported by a central system, the Immunisation Management System.

When you attend for your Covid-19 vaccination a record will be made that you have been vaccinated and when. Normally, vaccinations are undertaken in GP settings. However, the delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine is being undertaken in a variety of care settings.  

NHS England is responsible for processing your personal data for the purposes of the national vaccination programme. To find out more, you can access the NHS England privacy notice at: https://www.england.nhs.uk/contact-us/privacy-notice/
