NHS England COVID-19 vaccination programme: 1 September 2024 to 31 March 2026, Site Sign-up Process

There are certain stages which Potential Suppliers intending to deliver the COVID-19 vaccination service from their Healthcare Premises must go through. 

The COVID-19 vaccination programme Site Sign-up Process for Suppliers document (the “Guidance”) sets out the stages you must go through to join the COVID-19 vaccination programme. 

All Potential Suppliers (whether existing or new) must follow this process and submit a Response Document to be considered.

Submitting Response Documents

Response Documents can be submitted from the launch of the process to the Final Response Deadline.

Due to the periodic nature of the COVID-19 programme and the time needed to onboard new sites, there will be Interim Response Deadlines to allow enough time for sites to be onboarded ahead of a new COVID-19 vaccination Campaign (see the Key Dates in the Guidance).

If there is still a need for further provision beyond that capable of being provided by this Site Sign-up Process, a separate procurement process may follow for the selection of any further Designated Sites or activity required. Additional guidance would be issued on this if needed.  

Response Document

This is to be completed by all Potential Suppliers who are proposing a Designated Site from their Healthcare Premises.

Only complete one Response Document submission for your Designated Site on the system.

Only completed by Potential Suppliers who are not on the pharmaceutical list, or do not hold (or will not hold by the Commencement Date):

  • an NHS Standard Contract (not including the contract that this may lead to)
  • a GMS, PMS or APMS contract

Submitting your Response Document

How to submit your Response Document will depend on the type of contractor or Potential Supplier you are.

In all cases once you have submitted the Response Document you will receive a confirmation email. Keep a copy of this for your records, it will also explain how to access a copy of your submission.

For Manage your service (MYS) users the email will be sent from manage.your.service@notifications.service.gov.uk, for SnapSurvey users it will be sent from noreply@online1.snapsurveys.com.

Pharmacy Contractors with MYS accounts

Login to your MYS account, select 'COVID-19 vaccination programme: Site Sign-up Process for Suppliers', then complete a Response Document for your Designated Site.

If you have management level user access on MYS and wish to submit Response Documents on behalf of all your sites, submit a Response Document for each of your pharmacies registered under your account one at a time.

You can save your entry at any time, but make sure you submit your Response Documents in order to be considered as part of the Site Sign-up Process.

All other Potential Supplier types (such as PCN groupings, Trusts wishing to vaccinate the public, independent sector, private pharmacies)

Submit Response Documents using this SnapSurvey.

You can save your entry part way through which will result in an email being sent to you with a link to your partially completed Response Document.

Submitting more than 10 Response Documents

Where an organisation represents multiple Potential Suppliers they may wish to submit Response Documents for each Potential Supplier on their behalf (for example a pharmacy or nursing home chain).

You can request a “Response Document (more than 10 Designated Sites)” excel spreadsheet by emailing mys@nhsbsa.nhs.uk. Let us know how many Healthcare Premises you intend to include in your spreadsheet, and what type of Supplier you are (such as community pharmacy or other provider type).

Make sure you complete it and return it to mys@nhsbsa.nhs.uk in line with the Key Dates in the Guidance.

Clarification questions and answers

Send any technical and clarification questions to mys@nhsbsa.nhs.uk.

Responses will not be made on an individual basis. Instead, questions and responses will be collated and posted here. Please note, as the first Interim Response Deadline has past, the query log will no longer be published on a weekly basis. We aim to publish clarifications monthly, subject to the number of queries received .
