On Monday 29 November the Joint Committee on Vaccinations and Immunisations made a series of recommendations to expand the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme in response to the new coronavirus variant Omicron.
There are no immediate changes to the current Vaccination Programme in Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire (BNSSG) until we receive the national guidance on operationalising these recommendations.
In the meantime, please do not contact the practice until more information is released about how these changes will be rolled out. When it is your turn to be vaccinated, we will be in touch.
The latest information about the vaccination programme in BNSSG is available through the link below, including a full list of who is currently eligible.

Vaccination Status Information
As of Monday 17th May 2021, an updated version of the NHS App will go live. The updated version will contain a separate feature to show individuals COVID-19 vaccination records. Please note, this feature will not be controlled by the individuals practice. Effectively, this turns the App into a vaccine passport.
The following is a link to the GOV.UK website on Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad which explains the following:
How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status
Through the NHS App
You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May 2021. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.
By calling 119
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 the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May 2021) and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 working days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We are advised that the letter could take up to 5 working days to reach you.
The letter will be sent automatically 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’ve recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.
