How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status – From 17th May

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS APP from the 17th 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 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 NHS helpline on 119 (from 17th 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.

Do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status, GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
