If you have received any COVID-19 vaccinations outside of England, they will not automatically show on your medical records or in the NHS App.

To be able to show evidence of your vaccinations, the NHS will need to update your vaccination record.

To do this, you will need to book an appointment to show evidence for coronavirus vaccinations received outside of England. The NHS team can then check this and update your records and the national system. This will then allow you to download an NHS COVID pass when needed.

This service is now available to book at Churchill Square in Brighton & Hove and Northgate Square in Chichester. It is also available at other locations around the country. You cannot walk-in.

You will need to know your NHS number and bring along evidence of any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had outside of England.
