A WOMAN said her holiday was spoiled and that she is over £200 out of pocket after her second Covid vaccination was not registered due to an admin issue.

Julie Hodson, 58, went on holiday in October 18 to Lanzarote for 10 days, discovering just over a week before their flight that her second jab had not been registered by her GP.

Julie, who lives in Colne, said that because of the error she had to pay £80 for a PCR test before leaving for her 10-day break, she also had to take a test while on holiday which cost her €45 (£38.62) two days before flying back to the UK, before having to pay a further £110 for testing upon her return to the UK.

Husband Mark, who had been double jabbed with both vaccines registered on the NHS app, had to pay just £19.99 for his testing upon return, meaning the administration error left the couple over £200 out of pocket.

She said: “It was so stressful. It was horrendous. We were having to run around in Lanzarote trying to find a testing centre. It spoiled our holiday. I was worried about getting back home.”

Julie had her first vaccination on May 8 and second on June 21, with both having been done at her GP, the Richmond Hill Practice in Colne.

Mr Hodson spoke with the GP to try and rectify the issue in advance of their holiday, with the surgery telling them it would likely go on while they were in Lanzarote – however three weeks later, it is still not registered on the app.

The GP told Mark that they would sort it, however after several conversations, including with the Covid manager, the surgery had not managed to register Julie’s second jab in time for her holiday.

The couple have also contacted various NHS departments to see what has happened and try to get the jab registered.

At the time of writing, her second vaccination is still not registered on the NHS app but has now been put on her medical records.

A spokesperson for Pennine CCG said: “We would like to apologise for the upset caused by this administration error. We are delivering thousands of vaccines every day and sometimes there are administration or technology errors.

“We are now working to resolve the issue and can issue a paper copy of the full vaccination record which will show both vaccinations while the update is processing.”
