Proof of COVID-19 vaccination

Posted on May 17th, 2021

Details on how to obtain proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status to show that you’ve had the full course of the COVID-19 vaccine and access this status when travelling abroad.

Demonstrating your COVID-19 vaccination status allows you to show others that you’ve had a full course of the COVID-19 vaccine. A full course is currently 2 doses of any approved vaccine.

COVID-19 vaccination status is available to people who live in England and are registered with a GP, or have an NHS number.

You can get your vaccination status in digital or paper format. The NHS appointment card from vaccination centres cannot be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

You can show your COVID-19 vaccination status as proof of your status when travelling abroad. You should not be asked to prove it for any other reason (for example by an employer or a venue).

You may still be required to show other proof like a negative polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, and you may still have to isolate on arrival. Please check the entry requirements for your destination country on the GOV.UK foreign travel advice pages.

If you have not been fully vaccinated, you should continue to follow the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to, such as proof of a negative COVID-19 test on arrival. You should carefully research the requirements of your destination country before travelling.

 

How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status

You can access your COVID-19 vaccination status through the free NHS App for Android and iOS. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. Please register with the app before booking international travel. You do not need to contact your GP to access the NHS App.

If you do not have access to a smartphone and know that the country you are travelling to requires COVID-19 vaccination status, you can call 119 and ask for a letter to be posted to you.

Request a letter only if you:

  • have been fully vaccinated by the NHS in England (you should wait 5 working days after your second dose)
  • are planning to travel in the next 4 weeks to a country that requires evidence of COVID-19 vaccination
  • cannot access the digital service via the NHS App

The letter may take up to 7 working days to reach you.

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