    Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad

    Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status.  GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

    Click below for how to demonstrate your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status to show that you’ve had the full course of the COVID-19 vaccine and access this status when travelling abroad.

    Covid-19 Vaccine

    Howden Medical Centre is taking part in the delivery of COVID Vaccinations along with other practices in our Primary Care Network.

    When we have vaccinations available we will contact you by sending an SMS message to your mobile phone with a link to click on and book an appointment in the vaccination clinic. Please therefore make sure we have your up to date mobile phone number on your records.

    If no appointments show when you have gone through the link this means the clinic is fully booked. Don’t worry if the clinic is full, we will send you another message when we have another clinic available.

    If you get an invitation to book into another vaccination centre through the National Booking System then please do not delay, if you can get to one of these centres then please do.

    If you are unable to make the dates and times that we are running clinics at Howden Medical Centre for your 2nd vaccination, you can contact 119 and you may be able to get an appointment at another vaccination centre at a convenient time to you.

    This leaflet is for patients with suspected coronavirus who have not been admitted to hospital and will be isolating at home.

    Accessing your GP Surgery

    The way people access their GP practice has changed to ensure patients  get the best possible care safely and quickly. We only want people to attend the practice when they need to, in order to keep patients and staff safe from coronavirus.

    Adverse Reaction ReportingYellow Card Logo of the  Medicines and Healthcare Regulatory AgencyLogo of the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency

    It is important that patients report adverse reactions and events in relation the medicines, vaccines or medical devices to the Medicines & Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency. This will be key in the case of the deployment of covid-19 vaccinations. However, any reaction to any medicine that has been used for patients with covid-19 should be reported. There is also a seperate reporting tool for non-covid adverse reactions.
