Demonstrating your Coronavirus (COVID-19) Vaccination Status
Please do not contact the practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status.
There are several ways you can prove your vaccination status for things like travel.
1. Download the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. The government recommends that people register with the app before booking international travel. (NB Make sure you look for the "NHS App" not the "NHS COVID-19 app which was the one many of us downloaded last year for Test & Trace purposes.)
If you are not already registered for the NHS App, you might find it helpful to view the following video, which talks through the process of registering for it – YouTube: Register with the NHS app: Quick guide
2. Call the NHS helpline on 119. If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. The government expects the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.
If you were vaccinated in England, and you think there is a mistake in your vaccination status (if for example one of your vaccinations is not showing up on the NHS app) there is a new task force set up to help you. Please ring 119 to be referred to this service.
