3 ways to reflect incorrect injection information
Regarding the update of injection information on epidemic prevention platforms and applications, now, after people have injected 3 doses of Covid-19 vaccines, the National Immunization Portal, the Health Book application Electronic health or PC-Covid application will update vaccination information. Besides, people after vaccination are also granted vaccination certificates by the medical unit.
However, in fact, some people reflected that they still have not been updated with the 3rd injection information on the PC-Covid application even though medical staff have entered the information into the system. Even many people have injected the 3rd shot, but the 1st shot has not been updated on the application.
Responding to this issue, Mr. Nguyen Truong Nam, Deputy Director of the Information Technology Department, Ministry of Health said that in the past, when Hanoi organized the 1st and 2nd injections simultaneously for people, medical facilities received the Youth Union’s support in entering information into the system. Currently, many health stations have to do the 3rd injection by themselves, so they have not updated the information on the system or updated the wrong information of the injector, which leads to delays.
According to a representative of the IT Department, Ministry of Health, people after receiving injections, if they do not receive a new injection on the application, need to report it to the Covid-19 Immunization Portal in the following ways: Method 1 – People access Visit the website tiemchungcovid19.gov.vn to submit a complaint, provide complete information, a photo of the certificate of Covid-19 vaccination (Shown on the Receipt Portal of 1st and 2nd injection, not received yet. reflect the 3rd injection); Method 2 – Call the hotline 19009095 of the Covid-19 Immunization Portal to report; in case people have had injection 3 but have not been updated on the application, press 5 to meet directly with a support consultant; Option 3 – If still not received, people can go directly to the vaccination facility, bring a certificate of vaccination for medical staff to check and update information on the system.
Regarding the injection of 3 doses of Covid-19 vaccines, many people wonder, if there is complete information about the number of injections on the electronic health book app and the National Immunization Portal, is it necessary? keep the vaccination certificate?
Regarding this question, Mr. Nguyen Truong Nam said that currently, the Ministry of Health has not removed the certificate of vaccination against Covid-19, but is doing both the certificate and the application at the same time.
According to Mr. Nguyen Truong Nam, the certificate is still the original certificate for the people who have been vaccinated, and is the basis for if there is any reflection or incorrect information, this certificate will be relied on to adjust. Therefore, people when injecting Covid-19 vaccine, even though the number of injections has been fully updated on the application, still need to keep the certificate of vaccination.
“The updated injection information on the application is to record that people have received the Covid-19 vaccine. However, the recognition depends on agencies, offices, companies… Currently, many places have used the information on the application to confirm people’s injections.”information, Mr. Nguyen Truong Nam.
