COVID-19 Vaccine and Travel Update

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 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you 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.

COVID VACCINATION UPDATE

As of Monday 4 January we have started to contact all eligible patients to invite them for their COVID vaccinations which will take place at Beverley Racecourse.  We will contact all eligible patients in line with Government set criteria, vaccination and appiointment availability, therefore we would ask you not to contact the Practice at this time.  Our phone lines remain extremely busy and all staff are working extremely hard to roll out the COVID vaccination programme whilst maintaining normal services.

We thank you in advance for your understanding and continued support at this time.
