  • Abroad is a big place and the rules will vary loads?

    Apparently you can't get vaccinations administered abroad added to the NHS national vaccination database so will not show up as jabbed in the NHS app etc.

  • Am in France but could be Italy.

  • Yes you can.
    They should take EU countries of accepted vaccines, but GPs are useless.

  • Not sure what to make of this but it’s interesting

    Mr Soriot also played down criticism that AZ had received during the pandemic from politicians in Europe, such as the French president Emmanuel Macron, who in January this year claimed that the company's vaccine was "quasi ineffective" in the over-65s.

    The AZ chief executive, who declined to comment on why Mr Macron had subsequently changed his mind, suggested that, in fact, the relatively low levels of hospitalisations now being seen in the UK compared with continental Europe might be down to the use of the AZ vaccine in older people.

    He noted that, in continental Europe, older patients have mainly been vaccinated with the mRNA vaccine produced by Pfizer.

    Mr Soriot added: "Continental Europe vaccinated older people mostly with the mRNA vaccine and the UK vaccinated older people mostly with our vaccine - and we'll have to see over time whether that creates a difference.

    "But what is really interesting to see in the data today is that in the UK, the number of hospitalisations…has remained relatively low, even though there were lots of infections, the number of severe infections and hospitalisations was still reasonable, relative to continental Europe, where the number of hospitalisations is relatively high in some countries."

  • Meanwhile, a lot of those green areas of London from a few weeks ago have turned blue

  • When i got my booster, they were offering flu jabs at the same time. I'd already had me flu. It was run by Pharmacy4U.

  • This isn’t happening, NHS app consistently telling people that they can only recognise people vaccinated in England and Wales or Scotland only if you live in England/Wales and are registered with a GP in England/Wales. As a result, no covid pass and no recognition of any overseas vaccines by test and trace. Spent a few weeks trying to sort this out over the summer and the conclusion is that while my GP records and medical file shows me as fully vaccinated, for the purpose of all the rules (except travel), I have to follow the unvaccinated rules as the central database can’t be updated. Was meant to have been fixed by the end of June but as of mid October it was still not possible for my GP to do anything.
    The travel rules are great, vaccine recognised so no need to quarantine but if anyone on your plane tests positive in a post arrival test then you get contacted by test and trace to isolate for ten days and told your vaccine isn’t recognised as it wasn’t done in England or Wales.

  • People, booster.

    Am double jabbed.

  • German but gold (last Sunday here in Vienna):

  • Oh really. I was told it was sorted.
    I got mine sorted and in the app.

    A GP should be able to put it into the app now, via a vaccination centre.

  • Good to know, I’ll try again next time I’m in the U.K. as that will be my full time return. Until I leave again.

    Interesting you mention vaccination centre though as that ties in with the GP saying that it was all on a separate system that they could not update from their surgery.

  • The travel rules are great, vaccine recognised so no need to quarantine but if anyone on your plane tests positive in a post arrival test then you get contacted by test and trace to isolate for ten days and told your vaccine isn’t recognised as it wasn’t done in England or Wales.

    That appears to be the law. Your vaccine must have been given in the UK to not have to self-isolate if a close contact.

  • I know, it’s shit isn’t it.

  • If you can get a foreign vaccine registered in the uk it is parity and goes into the app under a uk vaccine center and is then a uk vaccine.

  • This new variant of concern is not looking great, from early indications anyway.

  • Bird flu hn51 has kicked off again .

  • At the mo, what is more important getting the booster or having it registered?

  • Get it in eu and then get another in UK is best answer. Don't tell UK you had eu one, or you'll get stuck in no person land.

  • Tested positive for covid, actually feeling pretty fucked up.

  • Hope everything is as minor as possible and you have a quick and full recovery.

  • Thanks both.

  • Nu variant detected in Israel and Belgium.

    In the words of Bolo the Gorilla, I've got a bad feeling about this.

  • Ooo a new variant yay what fun

    Fuck fuckity fuck fuck
