You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May 2021.

Please note that you must download the NHS App not the NHS COVID-19 APP which is used for test and trace purposes

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. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.  The app will not show coronavirus test results but the NHS plans to incorportate this in the future. 

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 (from 17 May) 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. We expect the letter to take up to 5 days to reach you.

Please do not contact the Practice about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
