COVID-19 Vaccine Terminology Integration into Canadian Vaccine Catalogue (CVC)

immunization 300The Canadian Vaccine Catalogue (CVC) Working group is currently integrating into its Catalog the SNOMED CT® Canadian COVID-19 vaccine codes required for the nation-wide vaccination program. National consensus and alignment to already established guidelines is supporting the development of COVID-19 Trade Name codes for the vaccines, COVID-19 Generic codes, Display codes and abbreviations which have all been identified in scope of this project.

The CVC is leveraging the SNOMED CT Canadian Edition Immunization codes published and maintained by Canada Health Infoway. If you have additional requirements for new codes you can request a change through the Infoway’s request management system (InfoRMS).

All submissions to facilitate continued development and enhancement of terminology standards can be made via InfoRMS.
