Since 30 September a pilot has been in place for overseas vaccinations to be recorded in the National Immunisation Management Service with some data available through the NHS COVID Pass. The Vaccine Data Resolution Service are contacting patients with overseas vaccinations in their health records to present evidence of their vaccination at their regional centre and receive any additional vaccinations required. The pilot involves three vaccination sites in England with additional locations available from 11 October as the pilot is deployed nationally. At the end of October, there will be one vaccination site in every region in England offering this service. Currently any Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Janssen or Moderna vaccinations administered by the European Medicines Agency, the Food and Drug Administration or Swissmedic will be recorded via the NHS COVID Pass.
