How to access your COVID-19 Vaccination Status

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS app. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel. It is straightforward.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. They expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

Please do not contact Granta Medical Practices about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GP’s cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Please be mindful that not all countries accept proof of vaccination. Please check  the current foreign travel guidelines in plenty of time before you travel.

We continue to work hard to keep our patients as safe as possible, along with our staff and our community.

Patient access continues to be by invitation only, following a prior telephone assessment and only when the assessing clinician feels it is clinically necessary.

For medical matters please ring us on 0300 234 5555 and choose your preferred site. Alternatively, you can email a non-urgent medical query to capccg.covid19.gmp@nhs.net

For medication queries or requests please use SystmOnline – to log in please click here. If you do not currently have access to SystmOnline please ring 0300 234 5555 and one of our receptionists will be happy to help you.
