Introduction to the COVID-19 Vaccine Management System (CVMS)

What is the COVID-19 Vaccine Management System (CVMS)?

CVMS is a secure, cloud-based system that enables vaccine management and data sharing across recipients, care providers, hospitals, agencies, and local, state, and federal governments on one common platform. Through CVMS, North Carolina health care providers are able to:

  • Enroll in the COVID-19 Vaccine Program

  • Manage COVID-19 vaccine inventory

  • Track COVID-19 vaccine administration

  • Invite their employees to register for vaccination

  • Schedule appointments


Who will use CVMS?

  • North Carolina state officials
  • Health care providers
  • Eligible employers and organizations
  • People living or working in North Carolina

The state of North Carolina will be able to:

  • Allocate vaccines to health care providers with capacity to store and handle the vaccines
  • Send vaccine supply where needed in priority
  • Identify and prioritize the most vulnerable population

For Non-Health Care Organizations

Once NCDHHS approves an organization to load their employees, patients or residents in to the CVMS, the organization will be granted access to the CVMS Employer Portal. More information about the Employer Portal will be coming soon.

For Recipients

During the first phases of vaccination, recipients will need to be invited to register by their employer, health care provider or residential organization. Self-registration will become available to people in the future. To facilitate the vaccination process, people should register in the CVMS Recipient Portal prior booking an appointment with their vaccine provider.

User Guides

CVMS Offline Operations – How to Proceed

Users might not always have access to the CVMS Provider Portal. Occasionally, CVMS will undergo temporary maintenance and be offline, or users might be unable to access a connected device. This should not prevent providers from administering vaccines, but vaccination records must be maintained, and later, when possible, the missing records should be added to the CVMS Provider Portal.

Please download the following printable files:

For the vaccine inventory levels, a team member must capture the required data elements identified in CVMS Inventory Levels Form. This form also mirrors the user experience of CVMS. Providers should enter the data captured offline into the CVMS as soon as possible when the CVMS is back online or providers have access to a connected device.
