COVID-19 status service available for patients

A new service allowing your patients to share their COVID-19 status is available via the NHS App and the NHS website.

Those in England who have had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine, which is currently two doses of any approved vaccine, will be able to demonstrate their COVID-19 vaccination status for international travel using this service.

Anyone without a smartphone who needs to prove their Covid-19 status, can request a letter through the NHS website or ring 119.

You can direct patients as to how they can demonstrate their COVID-19 status when travelling and how the NHS App protects their data here.
