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 gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
Now that more doses of Covid19 vaccines are available, the NHS is able to open more vaccination services, including seven large Vaccination Centres across the country. Continue reading about the Covid19 Vaccination Programme.
Please do not contact us if you have not received an invite yet.
We are very busy at the moment and doing so could prevent a patient who needs our help from getting through.
People who are eligible and who live within 45 minutes of these new Vaccination Centres will receive letters from the NHS Covid19 Vaccination Booking Service.
If you receive the letter from the national service and can travel to the Vaccination Centre safely, you can book using the details the letter provides. Alternatively, if you would prefer to use one of the local vaccination sites that are being set up in Staffordshire and Stoke on Trent you can.
GPs are delivering vaccinations at local sites over the coming weeks. If you do not want to attend a Vaccination Centre and instead want to use a local site, you don’t need to do anything. Just wait for the practice to contact you in the coming weeks.
