As of Monday 13th December, fully vaccinated patients aged 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 aged 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.
