You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App.
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 the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 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.
To use the NHS App, you must be:
-registered with a GP in England
-aged 13 or over
If you’re aged 13 to 15, you’ll need to contact your GP surgery to request access to GP online services before you can use the app.

Children aged 5 to 11 years can now obtain an NHS COVID Pass letter for international travel
Children aged 5 to 11 years living in England, Wales or the Isle of Man who have had a full primary course of COVID-19 vaccination can now get an NHS COVID Pass letter for travel.
A person with legal responsibility for the child can request the letter on their behalf either online at nhs.uk or by calling the 119 service (0808 1624 119 for residents of the Isle of Man). The letter is not available via GP practices.
The letter is posted to the address on the child’s NHS record and will show all the COVID-19 vaccinations they have received. Further details can be found on the GOV.UK guidance pages.
