Covid-19 vaccination status

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 

  • the NHS website 

  • 119 - by requesting a paper letter

You will need to register to use the online services, if you have not already. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified.

If you cannot access the online services, and you have had both doses of the vaccine, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel outside the UK in the near future and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take up to 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. Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.

When you're planning your travel, you should check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is enough time to get proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status before you are due to travel.

Before going abroad it is advisable to check that you are up to date with the relevant vaccinations and travel advice. If you ask a member of reception for a travel advice form and fill it in at least 8 weeks before your holiday, we can ensure we contact you with the current travel advice. You may need to come into the surgery to discuss any risks with the nurse and to plan a vaccination schedule if it is required. The surgery offers NHS travel vaccines ONLY which include, Diphtheria/Tetanus/Polio, MMR, Hepatitis A, Thyphoid and Chlorea.  Private clinics listed on the travel health form will have individual charges applied for vaccines.
