Proof of COVID Vaccination for anyone aged 12 or above update from the British Medical Association
Update from the British Medical Association date 13/12/2021As of the 13th December 2021 fully vaccinated patients age 12 and upwards can request
proof of vaccination via 119 or the internet and a paper copy will be
posted which conforms to the EU standards for the EU covid pass. There
will be a QR code printed for each vaccine and it will have a validity
period of 30 days. The document may need to be ordered again if a
foreign trip is planned after the date of expiry.If 16 or over patients can get a digital pass via the NHS app as well.
This route isn’t open to 12-15 year olds yet but a digital solution
should be available in the new year we’ve heard today.
To get the pass look here:
and the direct link to get the paper copy is here:
Since formally joining the EU scheme in November 2021 we have been
sharing certificate keys via the EU gateway which is why the paper
copies now feature the EU’s QR code. Letters sent prior to November
relied on old fashioned anti-forgery techniques based on printing
technology and were not digitally signed.
There is no date yet for the provision of paper recovery certificates.
In joining the EU scheme I understand this is expected of us but other
work is taking priority.
