COVID Vaccination Passports

Digital version: 

You can get a digital version using the NHS App or NHS website. You will need to set up an NHS login to do this. Digital versions can be downloaded as a pdf or sent to you in an email. You must be registered with a GP surgery in England to use the app.

Download the App from:

Google Play- NHS App

App Store- NHS App


Paper version:

You can ask for a paper version of your COVID-19 vaccination status to be sent to you in the post. You should get this within 5 working days. You do not need to be registered with a GP surgery or have an NHS login for this. You can get a paper version by: requesting a letter online calling 119 – do not call 119 if you're travelling in more than 4 weeks' time. You can request a letter 5 days after having your 2nd dose of the vaccine.
