Digital NHS COVID Pass for ages 12 & over
There are 2 ways you can get a digital NHS COVID Pass.
- download and use the NHS App to get your NHS COVID Pass if you're aged 13 or over
- use the online NHS COVID Pass service if you're aged 12 or over.
- you will need to provide extra ID before using the Covid Pass for Travel. This process can take up to 7 days.
- The practice is not able to assist with the process.
You can now have your covid-19 vaccines received abroad verified by the NHS and obtain your NHS Covid Pass. Please follow the links below or call 119 if you have any queries regarding registering your vaccinations done abroad or booking an appointment to get them verified.
Please note that the GP surgery cannot make/cancel these appointments or verify the documents ourselves.
How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status - Information Update from the UK Government
For confirmation of your covid vaccination please use the NHS app. This will allow you to access your digital covid pass, and view your vaccination status. Alternatively, you can request a letter confirming your vaccine status from 119. Please call them and ask.
The GP practice will not be in a position to provide proof of your vaccination status and we have now been informed that letters from GP practice's will not be accepted at the border. For more information, please see the below link.
The free NHS App can be accessed through mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet, or through the browser on a computer. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. It is recommended that you register with the app 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 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.
Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
