I am not sure who to contact I wanted to check when the COVID vaccine data (https://www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/rxnorm/covid19vaccines.html<https://urldefense.com/v3/__https:/www.nlm.nih.gov/research/umls/rxnorm/covid19vaccines.html__;!!LQC6Cpwp!4hhJSaSQISPFQPnDDWtDnM4UEZMt_cATRLbMTn8OskzIoS5UcUogRAmYeInSShRNNmY$>) will be available in RxNorm in BioPortal. I did not see it in REDcap and the UCSF REDcap administrator said they have no control over the updates of the BioPortal Ontologies available on REDcap.
I contacted NLM support and they directed me to contact you.
We ingest RxNorm from the UMLS Metathesaurus . They do releases twice per year, and we just finished importing the 2021AA release . According to their documentation, the 2021AA release contains RxNorm version 20AA_210301F .
I ran a couple of test searches and did find some of the content you asked about has been pulled in, e.g.:
RXCUI 2470234 (Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine):
RXCUI 2468235 (Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 Vaccine):
However, there are other RXCUIs that don’t appear to be part of this RxNorm release, e.g., the Janssen vaccine (RXCUI 2479835).
Apologies, but I’m not aware of any plans to ingest a new version of RxNorm until the UMLS Metathesaurus 2021AB release in November of this year.
