The Government has announced that from 17th May 2021, people will be able to demonstrate their COVID 19 vaccine status for travelling purposes, by accessing the NHS app, or by calling 119.
Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID 19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID 19 vaccination status.
Please see Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status when travelling abroad on GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) for further information.
Proof of your vaccination status will be available on the NHS app, which is also valuable for accessing your health records and ordering repeat prescriptions.
Alternatively, you can call the 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; the letter may to take up to 5 days to reach you.
