COVID Status: Common questions

The NHS Scotland COVID Status app has now closed.

There are no longer any requirements to share your vaccination status in Scotland.

The app is no longer required to travel abroad to any countries.

If you’re travelling abroad, you should check the travel entry requirements for the countries you will visit or travel through.

You can still download a PDF copy of your COVID Status online.

If you can’t download a copy, you can phone the national vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013. The helpline is open from 9am to 6pm Monday to Friday, 9am to 1pm on Saturday and closed on Sunday.

How to download a copy of your COVID Status online

You can download a copy of your COVID Status online by logging in using your unique username and password.

Your username can be found in your coronavirus vaccination appointment letter. You can use this to register and create your own password.

If you have never received a unique username, you can sign up for one by using the ‘recover username‘ option.

If you have lost or forgotten your username or password, you can create new ones by selecting the ‘recover username‘ or ‘forgotten your password‘ options.

Once you have signed in, you should select ‘vaccination status’ which will allow you to view or download a copy of your COVID Status.

Will my booster dose be shown?

Only your last 2 doses will be shown.

What if my information is wrong?

If any information on your COVID Status is wrong, you should phone the national vaccination helpline on 0800 030 8013.

If your address on your status is out of date you can still use it, as long as your name and date of birth are correct. You do not need middle name(s).

If you’re a resident in Scotland and have been vaccinated in an approved country, you can have your COVID Status updated to include this information.
