How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status:

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through 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. We recommend that you register with the app at least 2 weeks before booking international travel.

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 surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs are unable to provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.

We have attached a video below that gives a tutorial on how to download and set up the app.
