Project #1:
Vaccine Eligibility


We attempted to calculate the counts of eligible patients for the Covid vaccine based on the priorities set out in the Green Book and GOV advice for clinically extremely vulnerable.

The approach used primary care data mostly based on age and a list of high/moderate risk health conditions (without health care workers considered).

This work was conducted between October 2020 and January 2021. In January 2021 this analysis was superseded by the “SARS-CoV2 (COVID-19) Vaccine Uptake Reporting Specification” — opensafely/primis-covid-vacc-uptake-spec.

The work approved in this application is published here as a public record of analysis carried out on OpenSAFELY, but must not to be used for onward development, decision making or further analysis.

A vaccine uptake report has since been pre-printed doi.org/10.1101/2021.01.25.21250356
