There are no plans to allow people with religious objections to obtain a NHS COVID Pass. The possible reasons for exemptions from vaccination are limited and apply to medical conditions. If an individual is not fully vaccinated, they can currently obtain a NHS COVID Pass for domestic use with proof of a negative lateral flow test, or proof of recovery within the last six months.
