NHS COVID Pass

An NHS COVID Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details or test results. This is your COVID-19 status.

You may be asked to show your pass to travel abroad, or at events and venues in England asking for proof of your COVID-19 status.

If you are unable to see your vaccination status on the NHS app, please contact 119 (not the practice) who will be able to help. The practice will not be able to update this. 

Vaccinations overseas

If you live in England and had your vaccination overseas in certain countries, you can ask to have this added to your NHS vaccination record. Once it’s added you can get an NHS COVID Pass.
