NHS Covid Pass
How to access the NHS COVID Pass
Access the NHS COVID Pass through the NHS App
You can access your NHS COVID Pass through the free NHS App on a mobile device such as a smartphone or tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 status will be shown within the NHS App.
You need to be registered with a GP in England to use the NHS App. If you’re not registered with a GP, you can still access the NHS COVID Pass via the NHS website (NHS.UK) or via 119 (select the ‘NHS COVID Pass service’) to request a letter.
We recommend that you register with the app before booking international travel. For access via the NHS App you do not need to contact your GP.
The NHS App is not the same as the NHS COVID-19 app.
You can request an NHS COVID Pass letter:
- via the NHS website
- by calling 119 (select the ‘NHS COVID Pass service’) if you do not have access to a smartphone, computer or tablet
We are not able to provide you with a letter of your Covid vaccination status. Please do not contact the practice about your Covid vaccination status unless you have been advised to by the 119 service.
If you have tested positive in the last 14 days and use the NHS app, you will not be able to download your Covid pass until 14 days since you registered your positive result.
Missing or incorrect COVID-19 vaccination data?
If you believe you have missing or incorrect Covid vaccination data on your NHS app or on your GP record, please call 119 and ask the agent to make a referral to the Vaccine Data Resolution Service (VDRS).
The service has been set up to resolve missing or incorrect vaccination records for people vaccinated in England who have a current NHS number and are registered with a GP practice in England.
The VDRS team will call you back within five working days to discuss your records.
To get an NHS Covid pass letter, please follow this link to the NHS website.
Overseas Covid Vaccinations
To register your overseas vaccinations, you’ll need to book an appointment at a selected list of vaccination centres across England.
Staff are not able to register your overseas vaccinations unless you book in advance.
Details of your overseas vaccination will then be recorded in the National Immunisation Management System.
If you’re registered with a GP in England and were vaccinated in Scotland, Wales or the Isle of Man, you do not need to book an appointment at a vaccination centre. Those registered with a GP in England who received Novavax, Valneva and Medicago vaccinations administered in the UK can also access an NHS COVID Pass.
Guidance for the Clinically Extremely Vulnerable
The Department for Health and Social Care (DHSC) has issued updated guidance for clinically extremely vulnerable people to reduce their risk from Covid-19, tailored to where they live. You can view the updated guidance on the DHSC website.

Guidance on Mental Health & Wellbeing Aspects of Covid-19
The coronavirus (COVID19) outbreak is going to have an impact on everyone’s daily lives, as the government and the NHS take necessary steps to manage the outbreak, reduce transmission and treat those who need medical attention.
It may be difficult, but by following guidance on social distancing or staying at home, you are helping to protect yourself, your family, the NHS and your community.
During this time, you may be bored, frustrated or lonely. You may also feel low, worried, anxious, or be concerned about your health or that of those close to you. Everyone reacts differently to events and changes in the way that we think, feel and behave vary between different people and over time. It’s important that you take care of your mind as well as your body and to get further support if you need it.

Advice for Parents During Pandemic
Whilst Covid 19 is infectious to children, it is rarely serious. If your child is unwell it is likely to be a non-coronavirus illness, rather than coronavirus itself.
Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured.
Remember that NHS 111, GPs and hospitals are still providing the same safe care that they have always done.
