The Government’s website has been updated with details on the vaccination requirement before travelling internationally.
Countries will decide whether they require proof of Covid vaccination for entry, and it is the traveller’s responsibility to check individual requirements. If needed, people in England who have both vaccine doses will be able to demonstrate their Covid vaccination status via the NHS App from 17 May.
Those without access to the app can request a letter from the NHS proving their vaccination status by calling 119. More information will be shared when it becomes available.
The latest information on symptoms of coronovirus infection and areas where recent travel may have resulted in a high risk of exposure can be found on https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/.
NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need medical help and advise you what to do.
Use this service if:
• you think you might have coronavirus
• in the last 14 days you’ve been to a country or area with a high risk of coronavirus
• you’ve been in close contact with someone with coronavirus.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
Call 111 if you need to speak to someone.
Everyone is being reminded to follow the public health advice on the NHS website to avoid catching or spreading coronavirus. (Update: 10.03.2020)
