England’s NHS app will be available to use as a vaccine passport from Monday 17th May 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. Both will be available from Monday, 17 May, when the ban on foreign travel is eased.
The NHS 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
•view medical records
The new update will contain a separate feature to display coronavirus vaccine records, so the government said there should be no need to contact GPs.
You will need to know your NHS number in order to access the app. You can find your NHS number via the online service www.nhs.uk/nhs-services/online-services/find-nhs-number/ .You must be registered with a GP, and the GP must have your mobile or e-mail in your primary care record, so that the NHS Number can be emailed or texted back.
The NHS App is available to download now on the App Store (Apple) and on Google Play (Android). To use it you must be aged 13 and over and registered with a GP surgery in England.
You can also access NHS App services from the browser on your desktop or laptop computer NHS app/login
Please note NHS login registrations may take longer than usual when there are high numbers of requests.
