New ways to contact the Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS) and Overseas Service

If a patient thinks their or their child’s COVID-19 vaccination record is missing or wrong, please advise them to call the Vaccine Data Resolution Service on 0300 561 0017. The VDRS will ask them some questions to establish their identity and identify any errors in their vaccination record. NHS 119 is no longer handling these queries but does have a recorded message directing people to the new number.

If a patient was vaccinated outside of England, they will no longer need a face-to-face appointment to update their vaccination record. Instead, they should email evidence to the NHS about any COVID-19 vaccinations they or their child had outside England so their vaccination record can be updated. Please advise them to follow the guidance (this includes people who had their vaccinations in Scotland or Wales).
