Get your NHS COVID Pass letter

Use this service to get a letter showing your coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination status.

You can use this letter if you're travelling abroad, or going to an event, and need proof you've had your COVID-19 vaccination.

If you're going to an event, you'll need to wait 2 weeks after you've been fully vaccinated before you can use this letter.

Who can use this service

You can use this service if the following apply:

  • you're fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine used in the UK
  • you had your vaccination in England or the Isle of Man
  • you’re aged 16 or over

You can ask for a letter after having your 2nd dose of the vaccine, or after a single-dose Janssen vaccine. You may need to wait 5 working days so your record will be up to date.

You do not need to use this service if you were vaccinated as part of an official clinical trial in England. You should have received a letter saying that your COVID-19 status is "fully vaccinated".

Before you start

We'll ask you some questions, so we can find your vaccination record.

If we can find your vaccination record, we'll send you a letter to the address you have registered with your GP surgery.

You should get this letter within 5 working days.

Check the details your GP surgery has for you are up to date. Or you can register with a GP surgery if you do not have one.
