Question for Department of Health and Social Care

UIN 76833, tabled on 17 November 2021

To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, pursuant to the Answer of 22 September 2021 to Question 47056, what progress he has made on enabling UK residents who have received one or more vaccinations overseas to demonstrate their vaccination status through the NHS Covid Pass.

Answered on

22 November 2021

Following the completion of a pilot, a service has been in place since 11 October for United Kingdom residents who received Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Moderna and Janssen vaccines in the United States of America, European Union, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, Australia or Canada to record their vaccination in the National Immunisation Management Service (NIMS). Once an individual has a NIMS record, they can gain access to an NHS COVID Pass.

The service currently has seven sites, with 13 further locations pending to support improved geographical coverage. Further expansion of the service is planned in due course.
