COVID Passes & Medical Exemptions


Some people aren’t able to be vaccinated and/or tested for medical reasons. If this applies to you or someone you care for, you can apply for proof of this and will then be able to use the NHS COVID Pass in England when you are asked to prove your vaccination status.

You can request an exemption form by calling 119. Once you have completed the form, your GP or clinician will complete a section to confirm your exemption, or that of the person you are caring form, and submit it on your behalf.

Businesses can continue to accept people who self-declare that they are medically exempt until mid December 2021, from which point, the NHS COVID Pass will have to be used to gain entry in the same way that people who are fully vaccinated do.
