Please be aware that from 17 May 2021, patients in England who have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine will be able to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccination status for international travel. There are resources on the link below to help GP practices direct people away from calling you about it.

The guidance for GP practices is designed to provide you with up to date information on the COVID-19 vaccination status service and give you suggested wording for practice websites, telephone messages and social media. The service does not require patient access to the detailed coded record.

People are being asked not to contact their GP practice. Practices can encourage patients to download the NHS App or call 119, and signpost patients to more information. https://digital.nhs.uk/services/nhs-app/nhs-app-guidance-for-gp-practices/covid-19-vaccination-status
