COVID Vaccine Passports

 

We are aware that nhs staff, and in particularly vaccinators, have been fielding a number of questions regarding the provision of COVID passports for patients. We are now appealing to the public not to ask our staff for these at vaccination centres and to not contact their GP Practice to ask for a COVID vaccination passport or status certificate.

 

The Scottish Government is working to support the re-opening of international travel once it is safe to do so. It is also working with the other UK Nations and with the World Health Organisation to agree on potential future COVID certification requirements for international travel.

 

We would  point patients to the COVID FAQs on the NHS Lothian website if they wish to find out more information.
