NHS COVID Pass

An NHS COVID Pass shows your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination details or test results. This is your COVID-19 status.

You may be asked to show your pass to travel abroad, or at events and venues in England asking for proof of your COVID-19 status.

How to get your NHS COVID Pass

You can get an NHS COVID Pass digitally through the NHS App or the online NHS COVID Pass service.

You can download your digital NHS COVID Pass and print it.

If you cannot apply digitally using the NHS App or online service, you can ask for an NHS COVID Pass letter to be sent to you in the post.

UK armed forces

Members of the UK armed forces need to visit the 'My health care hub' on the Defence Gateway (login required) to find out how to get their NHS COVID Pass.

COVID-19 vaccine trials

If you were vaccinated as part of an official clinical trial in England or Wales, you can get an NHS COVID Pass for domestic events and venues.

You'll be able to get an NHS COVID Pass for travel soon. Some people already can, it depends if your clinical trial site has put your vaccination information on the NHS vaccine database.

If you cannot get an NHS COVID Pass, contact your clinical trial site.

Check the entry requirements for the country you're visiting.

Medical exemptions from COVID-19 vaccination

You can apply for a medical exemption if you cannot get vaccinated or tested for medical reasons.

You'll be able to get an NHS COVID Pass for domestic events and venues when your medical exemption is confirmed.

Find out who can apply and how to apply for a medical exemption on GOV.UK.
