Currently, 17 vaccination centres are capable of recording overseas vaccinations in the National Immunisation Management Service. There is at least one site in each of the seven National Health Service regions. The number of vaccination centres offering this service in England has been limited due to the rapid expansion of the booster programme. However, a further 13 new sites have been identified by regional teams as appropriate to offer this service. This will double the capacity at these sites by the end of March 2022.
