Your GP health record cannot be used to prove your vaccine status when travelling abroad.
Use the NHS COVID Pass service to view and download proof of your COVID-19 status for places in England and Wales using this service, or for travel abroad. Find out more about this service.
If you’ve had the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine, you may be able to see it in your GP health record.
However, this will depend on:
- whether your GP has given you access to this information
- where you received your vaccine
- how the vaccination was recorded
It will usually appear in your GP health record within 48 hours, but may take longer if it needs to be added manually.
If you cannot see your COVID-19 vaccine after 48 hours, make sure you have access to your detailed coded record.
