Children

Children under 18 do not have to demonstrate their COVID-19 status for entry to domestic events or venues in England.

From 13 December, fully vaccinated children aged 12 to 15 can request an NHS COVID Pass letter for international travel. A person with legal responsibility for a child aged 12 to 15 (such as a parent or guardian) can also request the letter on their behalf.

The NHS COVID Pass letter is not available to children aged 12 to 15 who have only received an incomplete course of vaccination (such as 1 dose of a 2-dose vaccine).

You can get a NHS COVID Pass letter online. People requiring digital assistance can call the NHS 119 telephone service to request an NHS COVID Pass travel letter. The NHS COVID Pass letter will be sent to the address held on the child’s NHS record (the address held by their GP) and will show all the vaccinations they have received including any boosters. The NHS COVID Pass letter should arrive within 5 working days, but may take slightly longer in December due to the Christmas postal service.

The NHS COVID Pass letter service is for international vaccination status only and not recovery or negative test results.

This NHS COVID Pass letter service is not available for domestic use at venues and settings in England.

Your GP cannot provide your NHS COVID pass.

It is recommended that you follow the entry requirements of the country you are travelling to. Further details on entry requirements can be found on the GOV.UK foreign travel advice pages and on the websites of your destination country.

Covid Passport

You can obtain your Covid passport through the NHS APP or by calling 119. 

The GP surgery is unable to provide the Covid Passport.
