There are no plans to roll out the UK's NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme to British Nationals living abroad. We are closely following other countries' plans to roll out vaccines. We are providing information through Travel Advice pages and 'Living In' guides on to inform British Nationals of healthcare options available to them and how they can receive a vaccine locally. The UK is playing a leading international role to ensure global access to vaccines. For example we are contributing the equivalent of £330m a year, totalling £1.65bn, for the next five years to Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance that provides equitable access to safe and effective vaccines for 190 economies.
