Covid Vaccination Status & NHS APP FAQSs

Who can get a digital NHS COVID Pass

If you're aged 16 or over, you can get a digital NHS COVID Pass for travel. People under 16 may need to show a negative test result.

If you're 18 or over, you can also use your digital NHS COVID Pass for domestic events and venues. People under 18 do not have to show proof of their vaccination or test results for domestic events or venues in England.

To show your vaccination status, you must have been vaccinated in England, Wales or the Isle of Man.

If you were vaccinated in Scotland, you need to both be registered with a GP in England and live in England.

Covid-19 Vaccinations given overseas   (updated 26/07/21) 

Currently there is not a central mechanism for capturing details of overseas Covid vaccines, and only vaccines delivered in the UK can be accepted as evidence for UK Covid certification/ the NHS Covid Pass.

A technical solution to support the recording of vaccinations overseas in the NHS immunisation management service (NIMS) is in development, and NHS Digital will provide an update as soon as possible. 

A solution for vaccines given in Scotland & Wales is being developed ASAP

How long digital versions are valid for

If you've had:

  • a vaccine used in the UK – your pass lasts for 30 days, but the 30 day period refreshes every time you log in
  • a negative PCR test or rapid lateral flow test – your pass is valid for 48 hours after a negative result
  • a positive PCR test – your pass lasts 30 days, but the 30 day period refreshes every time you log in (for up to 180 days after you took the test)

If you download your COVID Pass as a PDF, always check the expiry date before using it.

If you're fully vaccinated or had a positive test result, the barcode on a PDF is valid for 30 days.

How to access your COVID-19 Vaccination status

You can access your COVID-19 Vaccination status through the NHS App from 17th May. You can access the free NHS app through mobile devices such as 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 evidence of your COVID-19 Vaccination status, you can call the NHS Helpline on 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 14 days after completion of the vaccination course and it is expected that the letter will then take 5 days to reach you. GPs cannot provide official letters showing your COVID-19 results - these must come from NHS 119 

You do not need to contact your GP surgery to access the app. You can download and register for it without any paperwork from the surgery as you can prove your identity by uploading ID as part of the step by step registration process.

Please do not contact the surgery. Calls about the NHS App are making it harder for those needing medical attention to get through. Thank you for helping your fellow patients.
