Check your vaccination status with the NHS App

17 May 2021

People who want to travel abroad can now use the NHS App to show they have been fully vaccinated.

A full course is currently two doses of any approved Covid-19 vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from the NHS App, which you can download from app stores.

Your GP practice cannot provide proof of your vaccination status.

If you are unable to access this online service, and you have had two vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than five working days ago. It may take seven working days for the letter to arrive.

Dr Navin Kumta, Clinical Chair at NHS Kent and Medway Clinical Commissioning Group, said: “The rollout of the vaccination programme in Kent and Medway is going extremely well and we are on the road to recovery. GP practices have played a big part in that programme by running vaccination clinics, but they cannot provide a Covid-19 vaccination status letter.

“Please do not call to ask for this as they are extremely busy. You can demonstrate your vaccination status by downloading the NHS App which is free and easy to use.”

When you're planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your Covid-19 status when travelling abroad on the website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
