Vaccination status record
Your vaccination status is a record of the coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccinations you have received.
Your status includes your name, date of birth, and any coronavirus vaccinations you have received in Scotland.
Do not contact your GP practice about your coronavirus vaccination status. GP’s cannot provide letters showing your coronavirus vaccination status.
The name and address on your vaccination status will match the information on your GP patient record at the time of your first vaccination. If your address on your status is out of date you can still use it for international travel, providing your name and date of birth are correct.
Coronavirus vaccination status can be accessed by anyone who has had a dose of the coronavirus vaccine. This includes those aged 16 and 17 who have had the vaccine.
You cannot be tracked by your vaccination status and your personal information is not shared with third parties.
What your vaccination record can be used for
Your vaccination status can be used to confirm that you have received a dose of the coronavirus vaccine.
Coronavirus vaccination status might be required when you are travelling internationally. There are international plans to issue coronavirus COVID Status Certificates for travel in future, however, nothing has been agreed yet.
You can get access to your coronavirus vaccination status if you chose to travel, and need to provide a record of your vaccination status by the destination country or your travel operator.
It is your responsibility to check what the requirements are to enter the country you are travelling to. It is also your responsibility to check what the requirements are to return to Scotland from your country of travel.
What they cannot be used for
Vaccination status is not proof of identity. It does not guarantee access to international travel.
