Overseas Vaccination Validation Service


A new service has been launched to capture evidence of COVID-19 vaccinations administered in countries other than England, Scotland and Wales and have these recorded in the National Immunisation Management System (NIMS). This will then enable an accurate NHS COVID Pass to be generated. 

You can use this service if you’re:

  • aged 18 or over
  • have an NHS number
  • have received a COVID vaccine dose outside of England that is one of the four MHRA-approved vaccine types; Astra Zeneca (Vaxzevria), Pfizer (Comirnaty), Janssen or Moderna (Spikevax).


Those wanting to use the service need to make an appointment at one of the vaccination centres offering this service.

Appointments need to be booked at and managed through the National Booking Service on the NHS website following this link or by calling 119.

Vaccination programme volunteers


Volunteers needed to support the vaccination programme across Surrey Heartlands

Frontline teams continue to do an incredible job in vaccinating thousands of people every day and we are working closely with our local vaccination sites to rapidly expand the Covid-19 vaccination programme, with the aim of offering all adults a booster jab by the end of December.

As well as rapidly expanding capacity at our sites to offer more appointments, we are redeploying staff to support our vaccination teams – but need more help.

Earlier this month the NHS launched its official recruitment drive to get more vaccinators and volunteers to help ramp up the booster programme and thousands have already come forward.

These new recruits of vaccinators and volunteers will join the mission to get more jabs in arms from now and over the coming weeks leading up to Christmas.

If you are interested in applying or if you want to volunteer, search ‘NHS vaccine team’ to find out how you can help, or visit NHS Volunteer Responders.

These symptoms can range from mild to severe and can't be explained by another cause. 

It is sometimes called “post-COVID-19 syndrome” or "long COVID".

There are various symptoms linked to long COVID, these may include:

  • extreme tiredness (fatigue)
  • shortness of breath
  • chest pain or tightness

What to do if you think you may have long COVID?

If you're worried about symptoms 4 weeks or more after having COVID-19, please contact your GP surgery to make an appointment.  Your doctor will talk to you about the care and support you might need and give you advise on the next steps.

Please visit Your COVID Recovery website for more information to support your recovery from long COVID.
