The Ohio Vaccine Management Solution (VMS) offered by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is designed to assist providers and patients with the vaccination process so they can focus solely on vaccine administration. This no-cost tool can assist providers with patient registration, scheduling, vaccine inventory, and clinic management. Patients beginning the vaccination process also benefit from an eligibility screening tool that will let them know if they are eligible at this time for vaccination. The VMS also allows patients to submit health information and receive important reminders about their vaccination process.
The following resources are available to help you navigate the VMS tool. Below you will find a series of videos and training deck that will take you step-by-step through setting up your Provider Portal and using VMS.
