Vaccine Administration Management System (VAMS) is an optional, web-based application that supports planning and execution for temporary, mobile, or satellite COVID-19 vaccination clinics, as well as traditional medical practices that do not have existing IT systems for vaccination clinic management.

VAMS users can access their portal VAMS Vaccine PortalVAMS users who need assistance should contact their VAMS Jurisdiction points of contact, VAMS clinic administrator, or VAMS organization & employer point of contact for assistance.

If you are not a VAMS user, but interested in learning more, or if you have questions about the availability of COVID-19 vaccine in your area and if you can receive the COVID-19 vaccine, please contact your local health department.

VAMS has modules to support four specific user groups:

  • Public health jurisdictions: VAMS allows jurisdictions to provide end-to-end vaccination services and manage vaccination clinics.
  • Healthcare providers: VAMS facilitates patient scheduling, vaccine administration workflow, and patient monitoring.
  • Employers/organizations: VAMS allows these groups to bulk input employees, who will receive an email to register in VAMS so they can schedule an appointment to receive a COVID-19 vaccination.
  • Vaccine recipients: VAMS provides an easy way for COVID-19 vaccine recipients to schedule vaccination appointments, receive a record of vaccination, and receive appointment reminders, if needed, for the second dose of the specific vaccine they received.

As part of the overall IT infrastructure to support COVID-19 vaccination, VAMS connects with Immunization Information Systems (IISs) via federal and jurisdictional data reporting systems and sends data to IISs through the IZ Gateway or COVID-19 Data Clearinghouse.
