Your NHS appointment card from Vaccination centres cannot be used as proof of your vaccine status. 

 

You can access your vaccination status through the NHS App; which can be accessed through a smartphone or tablet. For more information on this, please visit the Government COVID-19 page or the NHS website at NHS Coronavirus-covid-19

 

Alternatively you can call 119 at least 5 days after receiving your 2nd dose and request a letter be sent to you. 

 

As a GP surgery, we are not able to provide proof of your vaccination status.
