Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad

 

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 

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service.

If you cannot access this online service, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future and have 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.

Going Local 

Selden Medical Welcomes Going Local to the Practice 

Going Local helps people understand their problems and find a way forward, using help already available in the local community. It's a different way of looking at challenges that life presents which can't be totally solved with a traditional prescription - for example, you may be feeling anxious or depressed about your housing situation or are not sleeping due to a recent bereavement or money worries.

As a resident, you can be referred to Going Local via the GP surgery. It's quick and easy, and a Community Referrer on the Going Local team will then help you unpick your worries and connect you to people who can help. This might be to a specialist housing advisor, to budgeting and money-advice charities or to groups that you may lift your spirits and get you socialising again. Going Local will be holding one to one appointments for patients at a weekly clinic. For more information please call the Surgery on 01903 234962. More details on the link below
