Flu & Covid

Booking a vaccination

Unfortunately, we are no longer giving Covid19 vaccinations at Minchinhampton Surgery after the government’s “Autumn Booster” campaign officially ended on 12th February 2023. Please visit the NHS website or Gloucestershire NHS website to still book a primary course Covid19 vaccination (e.g. 1st or 2nd dose) at a local vaccination centre.

Proof of vaccination

People in England who have been vaccinated against Covid19 can demonstrate their vaccination status for international travel using the official “NHS COVID Pass”. Official proof of Covid19 vaccination for travelling abroad cannot be provided by your GP practice. 

You can access your official NHS COVID Pass:

  • Online via the NHS website
  • Via the NHS COVID Pass app which is downloadable from app stores
  • By calling the Covid19 helpline (119) and requesting a paper copy

Please note: To access your digital certificate, you will need to register for an NHS login if you haven’t got one already. It can take more two weeks for your identity to be checked and verified, so ensure plenty of time to get your proof of vaccination before travelling. If you have already registered for online services with your GP surgery you can use these details for your NHS login.
