Covid Vaccine Status

About your COVID Vaccination Certification  

Using the NHS COVID Pass to demonstrate COVID-19 status – GOV.UK ( we are unable to issue this certificate at the practice.

Proof of your vaccination status will be available on the NHS app

Patient Access has also enabled a feature which makes it easier for patients to view their COVID-19 vaccination record from the home screen of their Patient Access account. This new feature will automatically be visible for patients who already have access to their detailed care record and immunisations.

Alternatively you can call the NHS helpline on 119 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, the letter may take up to 5 days to reach you.
