Checking vaccination status with the NHS App

As a reminder to our patients... If you are intending to travel abroad, you can now use the NHS App to show you have been fully vaccinated.

A full course is currently two doses of any approved Covid-19 vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from the NHS App which can be downloaded from app stores, with more info on the Government Website. The CCG for Kent & Medway has also published information on its website.

If patients are unable to access this service, and they have had two vaccines, they can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Patients should only call 119 if they have had their second dose more than five working days beforehand. It may take seven working days for the letter to arrive.

Government and NHS information has made it clear that GP practices cannot provide proof of vaccination status so patients should not contact them
