DHSC operational guidance on the COVID-19 vaccine medical exemptions process


The decision on whether an applicant is eligible or not is recorded on the Summary Care Record application (SCRa). Instructions on how to access the SCRa are available. Clinical guidance on who is exempt can also be found within the SCRa’s Online Help page, accessed from the new ‘COVID-19 Exemptions’ tab by either clicking ‘Help’ on the menu at the top of the screen or by clicking on the ‘clinical guidance’ link. General Practices will be paid (£44 per review) by the end of the month following the automatic extraction of assessments from the SCRa inputs.
