Recording your COVID vaccination status if vaccinated abroad

We have had a number of queries from patients who have had their Covid vaccinations overseas and until now have been unable to show them on the NHS App "Covid Pass"
It is now possible to have these recorded to show on the App. This is administered by the vaccine centres and the 119 service and NOT by GPs.
