If you are unable to access this App you can call the NHS helpline on 119 (from 17 May) and request a letter to be posted to you.
Here is a handy link to help you to get proof of your vaccination status on the app:https://mobile.twitter.com/drgandalf52/status/1393812893569740800

Further information on the vaccination
Vaccines are the way out of this pandemic. An effective vaccine is the best way to protect people from coronavirus.
Following extensive safety trials and authorisation by the independent regulator (the MHRA), effective COVID-19 vaccines are now available for free in the UK.
COVID Vaccine prioritisation
An independent group of experts (Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation) has recommended that the NHS first offers vaccines to those at higher risk of catching Covid-19 and of suffering serious complications or dying from the virus. Click here
