COVID Vaccination Status

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

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status:

What it is:

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status allows you to show others that you’ve had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine when travelling abroad to some countries or territories. A full course is currently 2 doses of any approved vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccination status is available to people who live in England.

You can get your vaccination status in digital or paper format - the service will go live from Monday 17 May 2021.

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status?

 *  Through the NHS App:

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17 May 2021. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or 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.

 *  By calling 119:

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.  This must be at least 5 working days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine. We expect the letter to take up to 7 working days to reach you.

The letter will be sent automatically to the address registered with your GP.  The 119 call handler you speak to will not be able to see your address to check this with you.  If you’ve recently moved house, make sure you’ve given your new address to your GP practice before calling 119.

Protecting your data

Your COVID-19 vaccination status is held securely within the NHS App, and can only be accessed via the NHS login service.

The app only shows your COVID-19 vaccination status in the form of your vaccination record.

In the future, the app will also show your COVID-19 test results.
