How to access your COVID-19 vaccination status - Information Update from the UK Government:
i) Through the free NHS App from 17 May. You can access the app through mobile devices such as a smartphone or by tablet. Proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status will be shown within the NHS App. It is recommended that you register with the app before booking international travel.
ii) 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 the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 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 5 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.
The British Society for Immunology
The British Society for Immunology has produced a guide on vaccinations for Covid-19 which explains how vaccines work and answers common questions as well as providing up-to-date information on the current approved Covid-19 vaccination in the UK. The guide can be accessed by going to guide to vaccinations for COVID-19
