AstraZeneca Batches 4120Z001 4120Z002 4120Z003

We have received a number of queries relating to Covid AstraZeneca batch numbers 4120Z001, 4120Z002 and 4120Z003 following the suggestion by the media that individuals vaccinated with these batch numbers would be prohibited from travelling to Europe under the vaccine passport scheme. The only difference in the above listed batches from other AZ vaccines given in the UK being they were manufactured in India rather than within Europe.

Q&A

Is my vaccine Covishield?

No Covishield vaccines have been administered in the UK. All AstraZeneca vaccines given in the UK are the same product and appear on the NHS Covid Pass as Vaxzevria. The European Medicines Agency has authorised this vaccine and the Government is confident travel will not be affected.

What is the NHS Covid Pass?

The NHS COVID Pass is a new product name which refers to the digital version of individuals’ proof of Covid-19 vaccine status which has been available for international travel since May.

This can be accessed via the existing NHS App, the downloadable version accessed through NHS.net and the letter which can be requested by calling 119 in England. A paper-based solution is available now for those living in Scotland, Wales and from July in Northern Ireland.

This is not to be confused with the NHS Covid-19 App.

Is the vaccine I was given affected?

All AstraZeneca vaccines given in the UK are the same product and appear on the NHS Covid Pass as Vaxzevria. The European Medicines Agency has authorised this vaccine and the Government is confident travel will not be affected.

The batch number I have is the same as those listed in the press

All AstraZeneca vaccines given in the UK are the same product and appear on the NHS Covid Pass as Vaxzevria. The European Medicines Agency has authorised this vaccine and the Government is confident travel will not be affected.

All vaccine doses administered in the UK have been subject to rigorous safety and quality checks, including individual batch testing and physical site inspections by the medicine’s regulator MHRA.

What is the EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate?

This is currently for EU citizens only, or third country nationals legally staying or resident in the EU.
