Covid vaccination passports/status certificates
Please do not contact the Practice to ask for a Covid vaccination passport or status certificate as we are unable to provide any standard document. International certification standards have not yet been agreed. The Scottish Government is working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree future COVID certification requirements for international travel. As part of this, they are developing a technical solution that could allow people to access their COVID vaccination status directly.
