As opposed to the fake one? Heat anyway for reminding people about it.
Follow the link in the post above (beware of con sites offering a express checking service for a charge (you wont get your card any faster (it will probably delay you getting the card for a couple more days) and you will be paying a charge needlessly))

It's an EEA programme. It doesn't just cover the EU. Several countries that are not in the EU are covered by the EHIC scheme.
Thanks : )

Even if we do vote to leave the EU it'll be a long long time before we actually do it. It won't be an overnight thing.
