    England’s NHS app will be available to use as a vaccine passport from Monday, the government has said - but only for those who have had both doses of the jab.

    A paper version will also be available - by calling 119 but not through a GP.

    Both will be available from Monday, 17 May, when the ban on foreign travel is eased.

    The NHS app is separate to the NHS Covid-19 app, which is used for contact tracing.

    People can already use the NHS app to:

    request repeat prescriptions
    arrange appointments to see their doctor
    view medical records
    It can also show vaccine statuses, including for coronavirus, but currently this feature must be enabled by a GP before it appears on the app.

    The new update will contain a separate feature to display coronavirus vaccine records, so the government said there should be no need to contact GPs.

    The app will not show coronavirus test results, but the NHS plans to incorporate this in the future, the government website said.

    It advised people register to use the app at least two weeks before travelling.

    A paper letter can be requested only at least five days after a second vaccine dose and can take five days to arrive.

    Pre-departure test
    “There are not many countries that currently accept proof of vaccination,” the government advice warns.

    “So for the time being, most people will still need to follow other rules when travelling abroad – like getting a negative pre-departure test.”

    The government has announced 12 countries people in England can travel to, without having to quarantine when they return.

    But not all of these destinations allow UK tourists.

    For example, travel to mainland Portugal and the Azores is currently for essential purposes only.

    The list will be reviewed every three weeks.

    Countries can be added or removed at short notice
    Shalom

    Ontario will no longer give AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine as 1st dose due to blood clot risk | CBC News

    Ontario, Canada discontinues using Astra Zeneca Vaccine for first doses due to an increase of blood clotting in the last few days.
    I wonder if the people that already got the first dose of AZ can get the second dose of AZ? Wow!

    That's a very good point, covered in the artcile:
    The province has asked the National Advisory Committee on Immunization (NACI) to provide direction on the mixing and matching of different brands of vaccine for first and second doses.
    - I'd hate to be in their shoes - as for what that does for those sitting on the fence about vaccination - not good.

    Just heard on the news a few mins ago, that we should be able to get our second dose, but they are not sure yet, and are looking into it more. But it is very scary. I didn't want to get this vaccine, but it was the one most immediately available and glad I did as I was exposed a few days ago to a child with Covid. I'm not sure if it would help but it is better than not having a vaccine imo.

    o
    I agree. The tiny chance of a blood clot is better than no protection at all. Having said that - Pfizer/BioNTech or Moderna would be preferable

    Not sure if its warranted or not, but AZs reputation is trashed. I was just talking with my sister in Italy yesterday, she said that she went to get vaccinated last week, and that in her region, you don't have a choice of what vaccine you get,you show up and you get what they have available.
    She said when she saw that what was available was AZ , she turned around and left. and she was not the only one.
    She kept going back, until they had , I am not sure if she said Moderna or Pfizer, one of the two. I think there will soon be a lot of AZ available for any country that wants it or has no other choice.
    The sooner you fall behind, the more time you have to catch up.

    ^AZ is a decent vaccine, and its efficacy rates are pretty good. It is just that there is a risk of blood clots. The risk is pretty low, but recently it is getting too high I guess to continue it, hence why it is on hold. I know many people that have the first vaccine in Canada. In Canada, it was offering the AZ vaccine at select pharmacies for people 40 and up for quite awhile now. I could have waited, but didn't know when I would get the pfizer, but it so happened I could have gotten the Pfizer a few weeks after. I've been told by many I made the right choice and the government is saying get the first vaccine offered to you, because the risk of blood clots is higher if you get Covid.
