FOI 26587


‘Hello, May I request the following: The number of COVID vaccinations carried out and payments made for these vaccinations to individual pharmacies, listed by their ODS code and with full postal address details. Could you provide the data for the month of June 2022 in EXCEL format please. To be clear, the data should be :

Column1--Administration Month Column2--ODS Code Column3--Pharmacy Name Column4--Pharmacy Trading Name Column5--Pharmacy Address Column6--Pharmacy Post Code Column7--Number of Vaccinations Claimed Column8--Number of Vaccinations Paid Column9--Payment Amount GBP’


A copy of the information is attached. Please read the below notes to ensure correct understanding of the data.

The NHSBSA makes payments for COVID-19 vaccinations to pharmacies in England.

COVID-19 vaccination data is keyed in via Point of Care (POC) systems and then transferred to the NHSBSA’s Manage Your Service (MYS) application.

Each month, vaccine providers submit claims to request payment based on the data that has been transferred into MYS. To be paid in a timely fashion such claims must be submitted during a specified declaration submission period. Should claims be submitted outside the time windows, payments will be made later. This means that in some cases there is a difference between the number of vaccines that have been 'claimed' and the number that have been 'paid'.

Both the number of 'claimed' and 'paid' vaccinations have been reported in this request.

Administration Month

This is the month in which the vaccine was administered to the patient.

Data included in this request is limited to vaccinations carried out by pharmacies only.

Data included in this request is also limited to vaccinations administered in June 2022.

The latest data used is a snapshot of the MYS system data that was taken on 5 July 2022. This is the snapshot of data taken after the June submission period that was used to calculate payments.

This payment data does not include any adjustments made by NHSBSA Provider Assurance.

Payment data includes payments made and those scheduled for payment in the future.

Payments comprise an Item of Service fee and potentially a supplementary fee. Payments do not relate to the value of the drugs dispensed.

The total used for the payment calculation may not match the totals shown in 'live' POC systems or MYS, as these systems continue to receive updates after the snapshot was taken.

Vaccination records are limited to those which have been associated with a declaration submission. This may include late submission declarations received after the deadline for declarations such records are not processed until the next month.

Please note that some vaccinations attract a supplementary fee, so it is not possible to determine the number of vaccinations by dividing the total paid by the basic Item of Service (IoS) fee.

It is possible for new records from old administration months to be entered in the future, thus the totals here for each administration month could change when more data is processed.
