Covid passport

Posted on August 5th, 2021

The practice recently has had a lot of queries relating to a Covid passport for things such as travel. At present the main way of getting this evidence is through downloading the NHS App. The NHS App will prove an NHS Covid Pass which can be used to demonstrate your vaccine status.

The NHS App also has many other useful tools including:

  • Ordering your prescriptions
  • Getting health advice
  • Registering organ donation decision
  • Viewing your health records and NHS number
  • Consenting to use of your data within NHS.

The app is easy to download and if you are requiring the account ID or third party passphrase you can contact reception anytime to get these set and sent to you.

We have also had a lot of enquires regarding GP letters in support of an earlier second Covid vaccine as advised by 119. The CCG have informed that patients should not receive a second vaccine before 8 weeks unless there is clinical need or exceptional circumstances such as military  deployment. Therefore GP’s will not be able to do a letter asking for an earlier second vaccine.
