COVID-19 vaccine information
About the vaccine
An effective vaccine is the best way to protect people from COVID-19. Following extensive trials, several safe and effective COVID-19 vaccines have been approved in the UK and the NHS COVID-19 vaccination programme is well underway in Hull.
Demonstrating your vaccination status
People in England who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 can demonstrate their vaccination status. A full course is currently two doses of any approved vaccine. Vaccine status will be available from:
It may take more than a week for your identity to be checked and verified so you can use these services.
If you cannot access these online services, and you have had 2 vaccines, you can request a paper letter from the NHS by calling 119. Only call 119 if you had your second dose more than 5 working days ago. It may take 7 working days for the letter to arrive.
GP practices and the CCG are not able to provide you with a letter that shows your COVID-19 vaccination status.
When you’re planning your travel, check the latest information on demonstrating your COVID-19 status when travelling abroad on the gov.uk website. Make sure there is time to get proof of your vaccination status before you leave.
