Appointments can be booked now via the NHS Website or by telephoning 119. We will be holding some further booster vaccination clinics at the surgery during May.

 


COVID Pass for 12-15 year olds

From 3rd February, children aged 12 and over can get a digital NHS COVID Pass for international travel. 
A digital NHS COVID Pass will provide a record of COVID-19 vaccinations received and show evidence of recovery for 180 days following a positive NHS PCR test.

You can order a digital NHS COVID Pass:

  • via the NHS website for those aged 12 and over (as a PDF document you can download or print)
  • via the NHS App for those aged 13 and over (age restrictions apply for use of the App)

COVID Pass letters can also be requested for children aged 12 to 15 years. This is only available for children who have received a full course of vaccinations. Letters can be requested online via the NHS website or by telephoning 119.

The practice cannot provide COVID Pass letters.

COVID Pass letters are not available for under 12s.

For more information on all of the above, please visit this link to the GOV.UK website.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad or attending events ('COVID Pass')

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status allows you to show others that you’ve had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine when travelling abroad to some countries or territories. A full course is currently 2 doses of any approved vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccination status, or 'COVID Pass' is available to people who live in England. Currently, vaccinations need to have been given in England in order to generate a COVID Pass.

You can get your 'COVID Pass' in digital format (via the NHS app or the NHS website) or in paper format (by contacting 119). 

We at the surgery will not be able to provide letters as proof of COVID-19 vaccination status or as proof of recovery from COVID-19 infection. Anyone requiring such proof will need to download the NHS app or call 119 for a letter. If you have tested positive and are using the NHS App, your COVID Pass will not be available for at least 14 days post the date you were confirmed as having a positive test. Once these 14 days have passed, you should be able to generate your COVID Pass in the NHS App again.

More information can be found by visiting the GOV.uk website or the NHS website.
 


COVID-19 vaccinations given abroad

Following a successful pilot period, the NHS has now launched a service for patients who have been vaccinated abroad with one of the four MHRA-approved COVID-19 vaccines [Oxford/AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria), Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty), Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) or Moderna (Spikevax)].

Please click here to visit the NHS website and read more or to use service. The service can be used for any patient aged 5+.
