How to have overseas Covid vaccines added to the NHS App

The only way to have overseas vaccines added to the NHS records is via the below website.

https://www.nhs.uk/conditions/coronavirus-covid-19/coronavirus-vaccination/tell-nhs-about-coronavirus-vaccinations-abroad/

This service enables you to book an appointment to show evidence for any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had outside of England. This is so the NHS can securely update your vaccination record.

 Who can use this service

You can use this service if you’re aged 16 years old or over and have an NHS number.

You also must have received one of these vaccines outside of England:

  • Oxford/AstraZeneca (Vaxzevria)
  • Pfizer/BioNTech (Comirnaty)
  • Johnson & Johnson (Janssen)
  • Moderna (Spikevax)
  • Institute of India (Covishield)
  • Bharat Biotech (Covaxin)
  • SinoVac (CoronaVac)
  • Beijing Institute of Biological Products (Sinopharm BIBP)

 Sinopharm vaccine

If you received a Sinopharm vaccine, your evidence must show that it was manufactured by the Beijing Institute of Biological Products (BIBP). Other Sinopharm manufacturers are not accepted for this service.

 About booking your appointment

We’ll ask you some questions and offer an appointment for you to show evidence of any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you’ve had outside of England.

You can book for someone else, such as your child or someone you care for, if you have their consent. You’ll need to enter their details when booking.

Information: If you book for someone aged 18 years old or over, they’ll still need to attend the appointment. A parent or guardian of someone aged 16 or 17 years old can attend the appointment on their behalf.
