Per the message below from NHS England, if you have had a Covid vaccination overseas, NHS 119 can help. We are not able to record overseas vaccines at present for you – this does have to go through them.
We continue to respond to queries concerning the recording of overseas vaccinations. The following update from the London Coronavirus Response Cell (LCRC) on 24.08.21 clarifies the current situation:
“At the moment vaccines administered overseas cannot be recorded in the UK National Immunisation Management system (NIMS) which is the system used to show your vaccination status in the NHS App. Therefore the ability to show any “overseas” Vaccination Certificate and request a Vaccination Passport is not currently available from the NHS. This issue is being worked on at a national level and an update is expected shortly. Any queries regarding this issue need to be directed to NHS 119 or to NHS App support rather than the GP practice.
If people cannot access online services, and they are due to travel abroad in the near future, they can call 119 to request a letter that will provide evidence of their vaccination status. The NHS Vaccine Resolution Centre has now gone live for those who had COVID vaccinations abroad. This is accessible through 119.”
