Accessing your COVID-19 vaccination status

The Government has announced that proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown via the NHS app. They recommend you register with the app before booking international travel.

You can access your vaccination status free of charge via the app from Monday 17 May, through mobile devices such as your smartphone or tablet. It is available to download on IOS or Android.

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.

Please do not contact your GP surgery as GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
