Vaccination Status Requests

We are unable to provide patients with a certificate of COVID vaccinations, a vaccination passport or a letter proving vaccination. You can request a 'Vaccination Status Letter' via the NHS website here, or by calling 119. It can take up to five working days from the date of your second dose before the national system is updated.

Alternatively, you can find details of all your vaccinations via the NHS app. The app is being updated regularly to meet the needs for proof of your vaccination status and we strongly encourage our patients to download the app as soon as possible.

Key messages for the public:

  • The NHS will let you know when it's your turn to have the vaccine. It's important not to contact your GP surgery for a vaccination before then.
  • All the while COVID-19 in in our communities it is important to follow the guidelines and remember Hands, Face, Space. It will save lives and help the NHS.

Please do not contact the surgery with regard to the vaccine.
