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.
Using the NHS App
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.
