Supporting NHS Covid vaccine roll out

SHAPE has been used throughout the Covid-19 pandemic and vaccination roll out to aid decision making on where best to locate vaccination centres within communities across the country.

All active vaccination sites were fed into the system via weekly synchronisation with NHS England’s Foundry system. Users were able to view vital information about each centre, such as opening times, online booking services and delivery from NHS sites.

On a more localised level, additional datasets provided demographic details of unvaccinated populations, enabling evaluation and informed decision making about future service delivery to reach as wide an audience as possible.
