COVID-19 Booster Vaccine Information:

The Thornton Practice will not be participating in the roll out of the Spring Booster 2023. For further information on how to book in please call 119.

Proof of COVID Vaccination record:

Here’s how you can get proof of your COVID19 vaccination. Download the NHS app now through mobile devices such as smartphones or tablets. Proof of your vaccination will be shown within the app and gives you access to your medical record.


All you need to do is download the app from the app store (Or by following this link) and input your details. It could take up to 7 days for your details to be verified.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you.

Request a letter only if you:

  • have been fully vaccinated by the NHS in England (you should wait 5 working days after your second dose)
  • are planning to travel in the next 4 weeks to a country that requires evidence of COVID vaccination
  • cannot access the digital service via the NHS App

We expect the letter to take up to 7 working days to reach you.

The letter will be sent to the address registered with your GP. The 119 call handler you speak to will not be able to see your address to check this with you. If you have recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.
