Covid-19 Vaccination Passports
Your General Practice is unable to offer you certification of your COVID vaccination, a vaccination passport or a letter to prove you have been vaccinated against Covid-19.
These proof of vaccination documents have not yet been developed and as such cannot be provided by your GP. As soon as we have further information we will share it with you.
Covid-19 Vaccination Update
Unpaid carers are entitled to a vaccination and we will be calling them in once we reach this category. Unpaid carers of housebound patients receiving a vaccination at home may be able to have the vaccination at the same time. Please
inform us if you are the main carer for someone or receive carer’s allowance.
