Vaccinations - travelling abroad

If you’re planning to travel abroad, being fully vaccinated will give you the best chance of being allowed to visit the places you want to go.

Lots of countries and areas overseas require people to have COVID vaccinations and take COVID tests before they enter, and rules can change at short notice if there is an increase in cases. Don’t get caught out – plan your trip in advance, get your vaccinations up to date before you travel and keep your options open. There’s a handy pre-travel checklist here.


To make sure you’re not left behind, book the COVID-19 vaccinations you need now online, ring 119 or find a convenient walk-in clinic where you don’t need an appointment, and get your COVID jabs ticked off your list.
