COMING SOON: Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status ‘COVID passport’

Posted by: aweeks1 - Posted on:

Next week there will be two self-service ways you are able to access your vaccination status. The surgery is unable to provide this for you.


From Monday 17th May the free NHS App will provide a new Covid Vaccine Status update that meets the WHO requirements. The NHS App can be set-up and accessed without contacting the practice. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet


From Monday 17th May, anyone who is unable to access the NHS App can call the NHS helpline on 119 and request a letter – note five days after 2nd dose- and the letter may take up to five days to reach you.

GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status allows you to show others that you’ve had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine when travelling abroad to some countries or territories. A full course is currently 2 doses of any approved vaccine.
