An overseas vaccine record validation service (OVRVS) is available at the Royal Free Hospital.

This service enables you to book an appointment to show evidence for any coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you've had outside of England. This is so the NHS can securely update your vaccination record.

Members of the public who need to get their overseas vaccine validated can book an appointment via this link. Check the link for available appointments currently running until 18 March, which take place in the atrium at the Royal Free Hospital.

When attending an appointment, you will need to bring:

  • passport
  • vaccination certificate provided abroad (electronic or paper)

If possible, following the appointment staff will be able to validate your vaccine for your official record which may also result in a COVID pass. If it is not possible to validate your vaccine status, staff will be able to advise you on next steps.
