From 17 May 2021, people in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.
If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Update
We are currently experiencing demand from patients who wish to book their COVID-19 vaccination. Whilst we are pleased that so many of you are planning to get your vaccine, it is not yet available and therefore we are not booking any patients into clinics. Our phone lines remain extremely busy so we are asking patients not to call the practice to request your vaccine. As soon as it is available, we will make it clear how and when you can make your appointment.
It can be confusing when trying to find the right place to go when you become ill or are injured. Click on the image above to learn more about how to 'Choose Well'. By selecting the right service for your illness or injury, you're not only looking after your health but using NHS services responsibly.
