Overseas vaccination checking service available at Brighton Racecourse

If you or your child had any of your COVID-19 vaccinations outside of England, they will not automatically show on your medical records or in the NHS App.

You’ll need to make an appointment for the NHS to check evidence and update your medical records so you can show proof of your vaccination status as evidence for travel.

This service will be available at Brighton Racecourse on Tuesday 29 November.

Appointments are limited so please book as soon as possible. You cannot walk-in.

Find out more about the overseas vaccine checking service or book an appointment online or call 119. Telephone interpreters are available.

Outside of this date the service is available from Northgate Square in Chichester.

What happens at the appointment?

The NHS team will review evidence of the COVID-19 vaccinations you have had and update your records on the national system. You will then be able to order or download proof of your NHS COVID-19 vaccination status as evidence for travel. It also means the NHS can contact you when it’s time for any future Covid vaccinations.

You will need to bring:

  • your NHS number
  • photographic ID, such as passport
  • evidence of the Covid vaccination you want recorded, such as vaccination card, certificate or email confirmation
