CVMS Training for All Users

All users of the CVMS Provider Portal must log in to the portal the same way using an NCID username and password, and they all have the ability to perform certain functions such as checking in recipients, adding or editing new recipients, and logging the administration of a vaccine. Whether you are a Healthcare Provider profile user or a Location Manager profile user, the below trainings are recommended for you to be able to complete your activities within the CVMS Provider Portal.


Obtain NCID Credentials

All healthcare providers and employees who will use CVMS to manage vaccine distribution must register for NCID credentials.  If you do not already have a Business NCID, go to and complete the steps in the user guide below to obtain your credentials. Once you have an NCID, give your name, email address, and NCID username to your Location Manager who will then add you to the CVMS Provider Portal.

IMPORTANT: If you are employed or responsible for two or more locations for your organization, you only need to create one NCID login to access all locations. To learn more about accessing multiple locations with one NCID username, please reference the Switch Locations Job Aid.

Check In Recipients and Document Vaccination

Recipients being administered a COVID-19 vaccine may fall into one of several categories, each of which is explained in the below user guide. Healthcare providers may need to create a new recipient record, locate an existing recipient record, update a recipient's registration data, log vaccine administration details, edit vaccine administration details, or remove an erroneously entered vaccine administration from a recipient.

Within this user guide there is also information explaining how these activities differ if your location has enabled the scheduling feature within CVMS.
