For issues with vaccination records from vaccinations received in England, patients should contact 119, and take the following steps:

• Select option 4 (To report an issue with your COVID vaccination record).
• Ask to speak to the Vaccination Data Resolution Service (VDRS).

Need a COVID-19 vaccine Exemption Pass?
You will need to call the NHS COVID Pass service on 119 to ask for an NHS COVID Pass medical exemptions application form.
After you complete the medical exemption application form you will need to return it to the GP or relevant clinician stated on the form. Your application will be clinically reviewed by your doctor, specialist or midwife. Your GP, specialist or midwife may ask to speak with you if needed, but you won’t need to book this when you submit your application.
You’ll automatically get the results of your application by post 2 to 3 weeks after applying. You don’t need to contact your GP or the clinician reviewing your exemption unless they ask you to contact them. If you get a medical exemption you can use the domestic NHS COVID Pass wherever you need to.
The clinical decision on your medical exemption is final. You can’t appeal the decision!
Receiving an exemption does not mean you are protected against COVID-19. You should self-isolate if you have any symptoms of COVID-19. To read more information please click here.
Post COVID-19 Immunity Pass - how to get the exemption on the NHS app?
When a patient suspects COVID-19 (or is certain from a contact and a positive LFT or private PCR) they should always do a government PCR test where possible at an NHS site, bookable for FREE via 119 or NHS website. This PCR test is what informs the covid app of being COVID-19 positive which then generates the NHS Covid Pass. Please note that you can get a free Proof of Recovery document via the NHS app if you registered your positive test which can then be linked to the app to show as proof of travel.
Any other COVID-19 queries PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE PRACTICE.
