COVID-19 vaccination status – NHS Digital

Posted by: lesleybowen - Posted on:

You may need to demonstrate your COVID-19 vaccination status. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from: 

  • the NHS App which you can download from app stores 

It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service.

If you cannot access this online service, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you are due to travel abroad in the near future and have had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.

This practice is not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.

When you’re planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the website. Make sure there is time to get  proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

If you need to provide proof of a vaccine status for someone else (for example a child) you will require proxy access to be set up. Please collect a form from reception. ID will be required to proceed with the application. Further details are available – our practice, proxy access tab.
