Vaccine Passport

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 (from 17 May 2021)

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 two vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than five working days ago. It may take seven 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.

NHS App to be used as Covid-19 passport from May 17

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Following Government guidance, we are now able to plan to invite patients for their flu jabs and covid boosters.  These vaccinations (one in each arm) will be given at the same appointment.  The covid booster cannot be given until 6 months after you received your second covid vaccine.   You are likely to be offered a full dose of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine (or, less likely, a half dose of the Moderna vaccine).  This follows scientific evidence showing that both of these vaccines provide a strong booster response, regardless of which vaccine you initially had.

 

We are currently working very hard to put these clinics in place so please bear with us.  We will be contacting eligible patients either by text, phone or letter inviting you to book an appointment a the Babington Vaccination Hub.

 

Eligible Under 18’s are the exception and will be offered the Nasal Flu vaccination at the Duffield Surgery.  Again, invitations will be sent by text, phone or letter.

 

We are still awaiting guidance regarding administering the covid vaccination to ‘At Risk’ children.
