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: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service.

If you cannot access this online service, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future and have 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 website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.


COVID-19 Vaccinations

We have commenced our local COVID-19 Vaccination Programme and are following the national guidelines regarding prioritisation of patients.  We are delivering as many vaccines as we receive, usually within a few days of receiving them.  Please do not ring the surgery to enquire about the vaccine as our reception team will be unable to assist you at the moment.  When it is your turn to be invited for a vaccination, we will contact you.

In preparation for receiving your vaccine, you may wish to review the information below so that you can make an informed decision.  If you are attending for your appointment, please ensure that you read the Important Information leaflet which provides all the information you need for your visit.

Information for Patients regarding Queries about AstraZeneca Vaccines

We have recently received the following information from NHS England which we are sharing with you all as we hope it may answer any concerns or queries you may have about the version of the AstraZeneca vaccine you have received and whether there will be a negative impact on your travel plans:

“The Government has confirmed that no Covishield vaccines have been administered in the UK and that all AstraZeneca vaccines given in the UK appear on the NHS COVID Pass as Vaxzevria. The NHS COVID Pass is the digital version of individuals’ proof of COVID-19 vaccine status, which has been available for international travel since May. The European Medicines Agency has authorised this vaccine and the Government is confident that travel will not be affected. The EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate is currently for EU citizens only, or third country nationals legally staying or resident in the EU.”

Information for patients about how to get an online or paper version of the NHS COVID Pass is on the NHS website.
