Accessing your COVID-19 vaccination status

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App from 17th May. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine.

You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone, iPad or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use this service.

If you do not have access to a smartphone, you have had two vaccines and you know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17th 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 7 working days to reach you. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.

Please do not contact your GP surgery about your COVID-19 vaccination status. GPs cannot provide letters showing your COVID-19 vaccination status.
