To ask Her Majesty's Government what guidance on booster COVID-19 vaccinations they are providing to UK citizens whose previous vaccinations were administered in an EU member state, and which are not recorded on the NHS app.

Booster vaccinations remain available, including for those who received primary doses in the European Union. The minimum dosage interval for booster vaccinations is three months from a final primary dose. Doses do not have to be recorded in the NHS App in order to access vaccination.

Vaccines approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency administered overseas can be recorded via the National Booking Service or 119. Doses can be verified at a face-to-face appointment at a designated vaccination centre and updated within the National Immunisation Management Service (NIMS). If an individual’s overseas vaccination is recorded in NIMS, they will automatically be invited to receive a booster dose when eligible. Vaccinations can also be accessed at a walk-in centre without the record being updated in advance.
