COVID Pass available to children aged 12 to 15

 

The  NHS COVID Pass service is now available to 12-15 year-olds, accessible via nhs.uk for those aged 12 and over, and the NHS App for those aged 13 and over. 

Children do not need to contact the practice to get an NHS Login to generate a COVID Pass via the NHS App.

Children will be able to access their digital NHS COVID Pass without undergoing a Gillick competency assessment with a medical professional, but the NHS App will withhold their other medical data unless an assessment has been taken
