There are three AstraZeneca jab batch numbers that may prevent Brits vaccinated with it from holidaying in the EU – but how can you check whether yours is on the list?

Up to five million people could be stopped from travelling abroad due to some versions of the jab not being recognised by the bloc’s passport scheme, it was reported yesterday.

The government has denied that any Covishield vaccines – a brand manufactured at the Serum Institute in India – have been administered in the UK.

Three people spoke to The Telegraph said their vaccine batch number matches those reportedly manufactured in India, which have not been authorised by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).

Despite a No10 spokesperson dismissing the claims as “completely untrue,” the news has sparked concern that some vaccinated Brits may not be eligible for travel to the EU.

Fortunately there is a way to check whether the vaccine you received comes from one of the batch numbers in question.

There are three batches of the AstraZeneca vaccine reported to have been manufactured in India: 4120Z001 , 4120Z002 and 4120Z003 .

Batch numbers should be listed on the vaccine card you received at the appointment for your first dose.

They can also be checked via the NHS app, by clicking “Get your NHS Covid Pass”.

Boris Johnson downplayed travel concerns on Friday and insisted he was “very confident” that the UK is on the path towards international holidays. He said earlier this week that double vaccination would be “a liberator” for travel.

A No10 spokesperson said: “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 we’re confident travel will not be affected.

“All doses used 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, the MHRA.

“The EU Digital Covid-19 Certificate is currently for EU citizens only, or third country nationals legally staying or resident in the EU.

“Ensuring safe and open travel with our global partners is a clear priority and we are engaging the European Commission on certification.”
