The NHS App will be available to use as a vaccine passport from Monday 17 May for those who have received both doses of the coronavirus vaccine.

The NHS App is separate to the NHS COVID-19 app, which is used for contact tracing. The app is owned and run by the NHS and is available on iOS and Android to all patients registered with a GP surgery in England.

The NHS App can also be used to request repeat prescriptions, arrange appointments and view medical records.

A paper record of vaccination can also be requested by calling 119. This can only be requested at least five days after a second vaccine dose and can take five days to arrive.

Please do not contact the surgery for a record of your vaccination status.
