Important update re COVID pass

Now that holiday season is approaching, we have received some information regarding the COVID pass:-

Patients who have received a COVID vaccine in England but it is not showing on the COVID pass, please dial 119 and ask to be referred to the Vaccination Data Resolution Service. They will ensure your COVID pass is updated.

Patients aged 16+ who have had one or more COVID-19 vaccinations abroad approved by the World Health Organisation (WHO) can book an appointment at a vaccination site to show evidence of their vaccinations and request an update to their record.

The NHS COVID Pass service is now available to 12-15-year-olds, accessible via for those aged 12 and over, and the NHS App for those aged 13 and over. Children do not need to contact their practice to get an NHS Login to generate a COVID Pass via the NHS App. Children will be able to access their digital NHS COVID Pass without undergoing a Gillick competency assessment with a medical professional, but the NHS App will withhold their other medical data unless an assessment has been taken

Please ensure you check your COVID pass is up to date in plenty of time before travelling to prevent any delays to your journey. Happy holidays!
