UK Travel & COVID Advice –


As we all look to start some well-earned Christmas leave there will be a number of our community who will not be able to do the same due to COVID restrictions and will see some single/unaccompanied personnel and families unable to go home or receive visits over Christmas due to them having to isolate within their flat/houses.  Unfortunately my team isn’t big enough to continue Real Life Support during the close down of SHAPE and EJSU so I am coming to you the Community, to request assistance with supporting those who might need it in the coming weeks during what will likely be a very lonely and miserable period. 

If you are remaining in Belgium and are willing/able to offer some time to support individuals or families in isolation, you can register at COVID – Christmas Volunteers – European Joint Support Unit (  The information provided will go to the Duty personnel over stand-down, using your registration information they will be able to link someone in need of support with a volunteer.  The contact details will be given to the person in need of support and they will be able to contact you if they are in need of assistance.  Assistance could be in the form of shopping or maybe a dog walk, the type of support will depend on what you are willing to offer. 

If you are in need of assistance due to being placed in quarantine/isolation please reach into the SHAPE Duty Officer on 0032 (0) 0476910209 and complete the COVID Reporting form here – COVID19 REPORTING – European Joint Support Unit (

The Belgian COVID-19 Autumn vaccination campaign started on 12 September 2022. Certain sectors and immunodeficient people are being vaccinated first and then an age-based logic will be applied until the age of 18. This campaign is including the new (EMA approved) bivalent mRNA vaccines against Omicron!

Those with a National Number (NISS or BIS) check your post boxes for an invite. 

NOTE:  A NISS will only have been issued if you have received a Protocol ID card. Those with a Protocol ID but have not yet requested their NISS can do so through the for the HNLO to assist, you will need to provide the HNLO with your address and DOB (for each eligible family member).  Those without a NISS or BIS can visit the SOIGNIES Centre (details on the AUM) after 19 Sep.

If you undertake a vaccination through the HN you can provide the details to the Medical Centre (proof batch number, Expiry date, brand of vaccine will all be required) by:

·        Sending the details via email to

·        Drop the information off at the Medical Centre reception.

·        Pass the information via eConsult.

Assuming the vaccination is one of the UK delivered JCVI approved COVID-19 vaccine then they will be able to add it to the system and onto NHS app/ Pinnacle. Further information on this process should be directed to the Medical Centre.

Those who have a NISS/BIS, and have activated their Digital Key will be able to view their vaccination status using the APP.  Further information on COVID testing and vaccinations can be found at SHAPE & BRUSSELS – European Joint Support Unit (


To assist you we have put together a set of guides covering varying topics and subjects. If there is information missing please contact us through our online contact form or visit your NSE. We can hopefully assist and together make more useful guides to help others.
