What’s an NHS Covid pass and how can I get one?

An NHS Covid Pass shows your coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccination details or test results. You can get a digital or paper Covid Pass.

You may be asked to show your pass to get into some events, where the Covid Pass is being trialled, or to travel abroad. So, always check the entry requirements for the venue or the country you're visiting. 

This information is for people living in England, links for the other devolved nations can be found at the bottom of the page. 

Digital Version (for test results or vaccine details) 

You can get a digital version using the NHS App or NHS website. You can then download it as a PDF or get it sent to you in an email. 

Both the app and the website are accessible and can be used with screen readers. 

You will need an NHS login to use these services. You'll be asked to create one if you do not have an NHS login already. 

It will have an expiry date if issued in relation to test results.

Paper version (for vaccine details only) 

You can get a paper version sent to you in the post using the NHS website or by calling 119 (do not call 119 if you're travelling in more than 4 weeks' time).

The paper version is also known as a Covid-19 post vaccination letter. The paper version does not have an expiry date.

You can ask for the letter to be sent to you in large print, audio or braille.

Further information can be found on the NHS website.
