Vaccine passport for holidays will be on NHS app next week

People who do not use smartphones can phone 119 for a paper letter confirming their vaccine status but have been urged not to ask their GP. Downing Street promised yesterday that the app would be able to show vaccination status in time for people to be able to use it when the ban on foreign travel is lifted on May 17.
