Certification of Covid Vaccination

Children can get an NHS Login in order to generate a digital COVID Pass via the NHS App or nhs.uk without the need to contact general practice.

The NHS COVID Pass service for 12 to 15 year olds went live in early February, and it is accessible via nhs.uk for those aged 12 and over, and the NHS App for those aged 13 and over.

In addition to providing access to the NHS COVID Pass, the NHS App will allow 13 to 15 year olds to access other non-personalised services such as Health A-Z, organ donation and 111 online.

Children can access their digital NHS COVID Pass without needing to undergo a Gillick competency assessment with a medical professional. However, the NHS App will withhold children’s other medical data unless an assessment has been undertaken. Patients can find out more on the NHS website or by calling 119.

NHS Covid Pass

Children aged 5 to 11 years can now obtain an NHS COVID Pass letter for international travel.

Children aged 5 to 11 years living in England, Wales or the Isle of Man who have had a full primary course of COVID-19 vaccination can now get an NHS COVID Pass letter for travel.

A person with legal responsibility for the child can request the letter on their behalf either online at www.nhs.uk or by calling the 119 service (0808 1624 119 for residents of the Isle of Man). The letter is not available via GP practices.

The letter is posted to the address on the child’s NHS record and will show all the COVID-19 vaccinations they have received. Further details can be found on the GOV.UK guidance pages.
