Had your Covid-19 Vaccination abroad? Let us know

Appointments (10 minutes long) need to be booked at and managed through the National Booking Service on the NHS website following this link or by calling 119. Appointments can be made in Lincolnshire at The Lincolnshire Showground Mass Vaccination Centre, Grange-de-Lings, LN2 2NA.

Changes have been made to allow those aged 16 years and above to book and attend in person, to have their identity verified and vaccine records from overseas validated. This means those aged between 16 and 17 years of age will not be required to have a parent, carer, or guardian attend the appointment with them. As a reminder, the current eligibility criteria to have overseas vaccine records validated has been set by the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) as listed below. Individuals need to:

• have received one of the currently recognised Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) approved vaccine types for use in England: AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria) / Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty) / Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) / Moderna (Spikevax) or Novavax (Nuvaxovid)

• be registered with a GP in England. Individuals can register with a GP if they do not have one;

• be able to attend the face-to-face appointment with photographic ID (Passport or UK Driving Licence) and evidence of overseas vaccination records.
