Overseas Vaccination Record Validation Service
From 9 December, the public is now able to book a face to face appointment at selected sites across the country using this link or by calling 119, too have their overseas vaccination records validated and recorded
The new service will capture evidence of COVID-19 vaccinations administered in countries outside of England and have these recorded. To be eligible to use the service people must:
have received one of the four MHRA (Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency) approved vaccine types for use in England:
- AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) /
- Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty) /
- Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) / or
- Moderna (Spikevax)
- be aged 18 or over
- have an NHS number
- be able to attend the face to face appointment with photographic ID (Passport or UK Driving Licence) and evidence of their vaccination record.
Where a patient cannot get their overseas vaccine recorded, for example, because they live too far away from one of the vaccination centres offering this service, the patient can still access subsequent doses for which they are eligible, either through attending a walk-in (if they already know which vaccine type they require, and the interval period), or through seeking advice from their GP about which subsequent vaccine(s) they need.
All Covid Vaccination appointments should be booked by visiting:
Appointments for both first and second doses are available through the above link or by telephoning 119
You will be given a choice of times/dates - the Local Vaccination centres will be shown only when they have a supply of the vaccine
All appointments are booked through the National Booking System - the practice are unable to book any appointments for Covid Vaccinations
Some walk in clinics are available: https://www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/covid-19-services/covid-19-vaccination-services/find-a-walk-in-covid-19-vaccination-site/
Beaware of scams - there are no charges for Covid Vaccinations, No charges for NHS Covid Passports
NHS App - Covid Vaccination details and much more
England’s NHS app has been updated and now shows details of all Covid Vaccinations when patients have had both doses of the jab.
A paper version is also available - by calling 119; this is not available via the GP practice.
The NHS app is separate to the NHS Covid-19 app, which is used for contact tracing.
Signing up to the NHS App is easy and gives much more than your Covid Vaccination details - it will also allow you to order medication on line. No forms are required and all identification details are checked electronically and will save a visit to the practice.
We recommend all patients sign up for the NHS App to have a record of their Covid vaccination status, using the NHS App will allow you to prove your Covid Vaccination status if required.
