NHS Covid Pass expanded to 12-15 year olds

Wednesday, Dec 14, 2022 0

Children aged 12-15 will now have their vaccine status registered on the NHS Covid pass for international travel.

It allows ‘more people to be able to prove their vaccine status for travel where it is needed’ Health Secretary Sajid Javid said.

It follows the move to extend the vaccination programme for both doses to all 12-15 year olds.

Countries including Spain and Canada require 12-15 year olds to be fully vaccinated in order to enter.

"Proof of vaccination will initially be provided via a letter service including an internationally recognised 2D barcode, with a digital solution via NHS.uk to be rolled out early next year," the government said on its website.

"Children will remain exempt from domestic certification policy in England and will not require an NHS COVID Pass to gain entry to venues."

The letter service can be ordered by calling 119 or at NHS.uk.

It may take up to seven days to receive the letter.
