CVE is a vaccination information system that allows you to record the vaccinations you have received. It is available to all persons insured in Luxembourg, whether they are residents or not. It allows you to access your vaccination data anytime and anywhere.
Through the CVE, you will also be informed about the national vaccination calendar and the recommendations of the CSMI (Conseil Supérieur des Maladies Infectieuses). On this basis, you will receive notifications with vaccination recommendations tailored to your situation.
All vaccinators (initially paediatricians, general practitioners, infectious diseases specialists and gynaecologists) who have access to the CVE can create it.
When you are vaccinated, the doctor stores the vaccine data (name, serial number, batch number, expiry date) by scanning the barcode. The doctor can also take your previous vaccination data from your yellow card or other vaccination record.
All vaccinating doctors to whom you give consent can access it.
You can access your CVE through your eSanté account (the account provided to you by Agence eSanté when you opened your DSP). To do so, please click here.
No, the yellow card remains in force; the two systems coexist in the first instance.
Yes, of course. The printout of your CVE will contain the names of the vaccinations administered, the dates of administration and your vaccination status as recommended by CSMI.
A solution is being worked on to integrate COVID-19 vaccination data into the CVE as soon as possible.
You will receive notifications of when booster vaccinations are due for your child(ren).
The general objectives of the CVE are:
- To facilitate access to vaccination status information
- To simplify the management of the vaccination programme
- To improve governance of the vaccination strategy
- Easily accessible online vaccination history
- Support for vaccination indication including booster schedule
- Vaccine traceability and pharmacovigilance (vaccination date, serial number, vaccine batch, expiry date)
- Easier stock management - reduced administrative burden
Access to the application is via the eSanté portal. The search for a specific patient's CVE is carried out via his or her social security number or name. It is planned that access to the CVE will be integrated into the professional's business software.
The vaccinating physician registers the data during the administration of the vaccine by scanning the barcode (datamatrix) of the vaccine. The vaccine data (name, batch number, serial number and expiry date) are automatically recorded.
The vaccinating doctor has the possibility to create a vaccination history from vaccination certificates and/or the yellow card.
The Agence eSanté provides each vaccinating doctor with a barcode scanner free of charge. It is also possible to scan it via the webcam (integrated or external) of the computer.
The CVE is intended for people who are insured in Luxembourg or who live there.
Work is underway to align with international guidelines.
Work between MSVAC and the CVE is underway to recover the data concerning the COVID vaccination (with patient consent)
No, the yellow card will remain in force, the two systems will co-exist in the first instance.
Yes, the printing of the CVE is possible.
No, the system does not send a notification to the physician. However, the physician will be able to access the vaccination status in the CVE of each patient. Notifications are sent via SMS and/or e-mail to patients only.
The decision support system integrates the national vaccination calendar and the recommendations of the CSMI (Conseil Supérieur des Maladies Infectieuses). On this basis, a decision aid for vaccination is provided as well as a booster vaccination.
WHO AMONG THE CENTRAL AUTHORITIES WILL HAVE ACCESS TO THE RECORDS OF "NON-VACCINEES"? UNDER WHAT CIRCUMSTANCES AND FOR WHAT PURPOSE?
It is not a question of having access to the records of the non-vaccinated. The Direction de la santé will have access to aggregate data on vaccination coverage for certain categories of population. For example, it will be possible to extract the vaccination coverage of a specific age category at a given time.
On the other hand, in the case where the health inspectorate is required to conduct a contact survey (e.g. in the vicinity of a person who has been diagnosed with meningitis or measles), vaccination information may not be available for the persons who are identified as contacts. In these specific cases, with an agreement procedure, the vaccination information of these persons can be checked to see their vaccination status.
No, this is not necessary.
