Proof of Vaccinations

Demonstrating COVID-19 status

Individuals in England who have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine can now get proof of their vaccination details and demonstrate their COVID-19 status for international travel using the NHS COVID Pass.

There are 3 options to demonstrate COVID-19 status: via the NHS App (if you have full access to the App and are registered at a GP surgery), through NHS.UK and by letter from the 119 telephone service.

NHS COVID Pass for event trials

The NHS COVID Pass allows individuals to demonstrate their COVID-19 status at a series of event trials in England.

Attendees visiting one of the events will be asked to demonstrate their COVID-19 status when entering the event. Using the NHS COVID Pass will help streamline entry to the event and help gain access quickly.

By downloading the NHS App individuals can use the NHS COVID Pass to show their vaccination or Lateral Flow Test status to the event staff.

If individuals don’t have access to a computer or smartphone, they can order a copy of the NHS COVID Pass letter if they have been vaccinated by telephoning 119. The letter can take up to 5 working days to arrive.
