To ask the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, if he will upgrade the NHS Test and Trace app so that people who have had one covid-19 vaccine dose in England and one covid-19 vaccine dose in Wales can demonstrate their covid-19 vaccination status.

Obtaining an NHS COVID Pass via the NHS App is available to citizens registered with a general practitioner (GP) in England. Individuals who are not registered with a GP, but who have a National Health Service number can obtain an NHS COVID Pass through the NHS.uk or by calling 119. Currently, vaccines administered in other systems such as Wales are not automatically recorded in the vaccination system used in England.

A Vaccine Data Resolution Service is being established by NHS Digital to support any patient residing in England, registered with an English GP, who may have incomplete COVID-19 vaccination records, either because a vaccination event has not registered appropriately or may have taken place in a different part of the United Kingdom. This service, expected to be available by early August, will initially address issues around vaccination records for those who have been vaccinated in the UK and queries about vaccinations displaying in the NHS App.
