The Government has announced that travel will be permissible from 17th May to 12 ‘green list’ countries. This list of countries is under regular review and more destinations will be added over time. In some cases, proof of vaccination status will be required to travel.
Please see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad for further information.
PLEASE NOTE: GP practices are unable to issue this proof of vaccination.
The nationwide mechanism for proving your vaccine status is through the NHS app, which is also valuable for accessing your health records and ordering repeat prescriptions.
The NHSapp can be downloaded from https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277 for iPhone or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline for android.
Alternatively, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you have completed your course of the vaccine, the letter may to take up to 5 days to reach you.
Please do not contact the practice directly as we are not equipped to issue vaccination certificates.
