Tell the NHS about coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you or your child have had abroad

This service enables you to book an appointment to show evidence for any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you or your child have received outside of England.

This is so the NHS can securely update your vaccination record. This can take up to 10 working days after your appointment.

Who can use this service

You can use this service if you or your child are aged 5 years old or over and have an NHS number.

You or your child also must have received one of these vaccines outside of England:

  • Beijing Institute of Biological Products (Sinopharm BIBP)
  • Bharat Biotech (Covaxin)
  • Gamaleya (Sputnik V)
  • Institute of India (Covishield)
  • Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)
  • Moderna (Spikevax)
  • AstraZeneca AB (Vaxzevria)
  • Novavax (Nuvaxovid)
  • Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty)
  • Serum Institute of India (Covovax)
  • SinoVac (CoronaVac)

Sinopharm vaccine

If you received a Sinopharm vaccine, your evidence must show that it was manufactured by the Beijing Institute of Biological Products (BIBP).

If your Sinopharm vaccine evidence shows a different manufacturer or does not say who made it, you are not eligible to book an appointment.

About booking your appointment

We'll ask you some questions and offer an appointment for you to show evidence of any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you or your child have had outside of England.

If you're booking for someone else

You can only book for someone else, such as your child or someone you care for, if you have their consent. You'll need to enter their details when booking.

If you book for someone:

  • aged 18 years old or over - they must attend the appointment
  • under 18 years old - they do not have to attend the appointment if you go instead of them

Children under 16 years old cannot attend an appointment on their own. They must be accompanied by a parent, guardian or responsible person aged 18 years old or over.
