You must include the patient's resource.id. If you don't have this, you can find it using a search for a patient with demographics.

The response contains one or more vaccinations for an individual patient. You can find the total number of included vaccinations in the total array for FHIR® responses.

We recommend that you check the StatusReason field to ascertain whether a vaccination was administered. If populated, it should contain a reason for not administering a vaccination. If the field is empty, it’s likely that the vaccination was successfully administered.
