- Demonstrating Covid Status
The DHSC guidance on how people can demonstrate their vaccination status when travelling overseas has been updated to inform travellers that they can now request a COVID-19 vaccination status letter to be posted to them via the NHS.UK website.
It should be noted that it will take up to 5 working days from the date of their second dose appointment before the system is updated so they may need to wait 5 working days before you can use this service. One a request has been made it will then take up to 5 working days for the letter to be received. Here’s the link to the website for requesting the letter:
