About vaccine code combinations

The vaccine code combination is made up of 3 parts:

1. Vaccine code (identifies the vaccine given)

2. Indication (reason the vaccine was administered)

3. Sequence (the dose number of the vaccine being given).

The table below shows the only valid vaccine code combinations possible for claiming through Sector Operations. The sequence should be between 1 and 99 unless stated otherwise. Age rules may also apply for specific vaccines.

If you do not see these valid vaccine code combinations on your screen, contact your PMS vendor for help choosing the correct option.
