COVID-19 Vaccinations Given Overseas

Posted on December 9th, 2021

From December 9th, 2021, if you live in England and have had one or more of your COVID-19 vaccinations administered overseas, you can have your vaccination details added to your NHS Record. You can then generate an NHS COVID Pass for domestic use and international travel if you meet certain certification requirements.
 

Eligible vaccines

Patients can use this service if they are aged 18 years old or over, have an NHS number and have had one or more of the following vaccines:

  • Oxford/AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria)
  • Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty)
  • Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)
  • Moderna (Spikevax)

There will remain a small number of countries and territories where this service will not be enabled. However, international COVID-19 certification accepted at the UK border is also accepted at events and venues in England.
 

Book an appointment to register your overseas vaccination

To register your overseas vaccinations, you’ll need to book an appointment at a selected list of vaccination centres across England. These appointments are not managed by staff at your GP surgery and must by booked by yourself. You can book an appointment by clicking here: www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/tell-nhs-about-coronavirus-vaccinations-abroad/

Staff at these vaccinations centres are not able to register your overseas vaccinations unless you book in advance.

Details of your overseas vaccination will then be recorded in the National Immunisation Management System.

If you’re registered with a GP in England and were vaccinated in Scotland, Wales or the Isle of Man, you do not need to book an appointment at a vaccination centre. Those registered with a GP in England who received Novavax, Valneva and Medicago vaccinations administered in the UK can also access an NHS COVID Pass.

If you need help using this service, contact the NHS COVID Pass service by telephoning:

  • 119 from the UK
  • +44 151 905 0119 from overseas (you’ll be charged according to your carrier’s rates)

 

Getting your NHS COVID Pass

Eligible overseas vaccinations will display within your NHS COVID Pass in the same way as vaccines administered under the UK vaccination programme. However, you may see some fields left blank for overseas vaccines. Non-eligible overseas vaccinations will not generate an NHS COVID Pass.

You can get your NHS COVID Pass for use at events and venues in England 14 days after completion of a full course of vaccination.

Your NHS COVID Pass for international travel will show the vaccinations you have received. It may take up to 5 days for vaccines to show in your NHS COVID Pass.
