Accessing your covid vaccination status
Do NOT contact the GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17th May. You can access the app through a mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be show within the NHS app. We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel.
The NHS app is currently the only authorised app for showing your covid vaccination status.
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 May 17th) 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. Please allow at least 5 days for the letter to reach you.
Please remember the incoming country sets the requirements for what they need from you to enter the country so please check before you travel.
You can use the NHS app to complete an Engage Consult.
