NHS vaccine passport

The NHS app vaccine passport will be on-line from today when the ban on foreign travel is eased, but only for those who have had both doses of the jab.

A paper version will also be available – by calling 119 but not through a GP.

This app is separate to the NHS Covid-19 app, which is used for contact tracing.

People can already use the NHS app to request repeat prescriptions, arrange appointments to see their doctor and view medical records.

It can also show vaccine statuses, including for coronavirus, but currently this feature must be enabled by a GP before it appears on the app.

The new update contains a separate feature to display coronavirus vaccine records, eliminating the need to contact a GP.  The app will not show coronavirus test results, but the NHS plans to incorporate this in the future, the Government website said.

The Government advises people to register to use the app at least two weeks before travelling.  A paper letter can be requested only at least five days after a second vaccine dose and can take five days to arrive.

BTN strongly recommends travellers to view government advice on a regular basis if you are contemplating or have booked travel.  You only get your money back if a flight is cancelled.   Countries can be added or removed at short notice.
