From 3rd Feb 2021,13-15-year-olds will be able to sign up to the NHS app using their own e-mail address and as long as they pass validation with a passport, they will get access to covid vaccine certificates and also recovery certificates which will appear ten days after a positive covid PCR test and remain valid until 180 days after the date of the test. They will be able to order repeat prescriptions, if they have any, but won’t be able to have automatic access to the medical record. For this, they will need to approach their GP who will have to assess competence.
