What to do if you have COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19

If you have COVID-19, or think you might, wait until you feel better before getting vaccinated.

You should also wait if you have a high temperature or feel particularly unwell with any illness. If you have recently got better from COVID-19, there is no need to delay getting vaccinated.

COVID-19 vaccination status verification

  • GP practices CANNOT provide you with vaccination status certification
  • Proof of vaccination status will be done via the existing NHS app
  • You can download and register the app to view your vaccination status
  • You can also call 119 if you need a letter for foreign travel
  • We ask that you don’t call your GP practice about this, as our practices are unable to assist with this
