'Covid passports': How can the NHS Covid Pass prove I've had both jabs?

Nightclubs and xo large events are being asked to require customers to use the NHS Covid pass to prove they are fully vaccinated.

From Monday, adults who have had both jabs can also use the pass to avoid quarantine after travelling to amber-list countries (except France).

When could I be asked for the NHS Covid pass?

From 19 July, nightclubs in England can reopen for the first time in over a year. Mass events can also take place without capacity limits, or social distancing rules.

The government's latest guidance says that in "higher risk" settings, venues will be encouraged to "use the NHS COVID Pass as a condition of entry".

The pass will show whether someone's been fully vaccinated, if they've had a recent negative test or if they've had Covid in the past six months.

Organisers are not legally required to require such proof. However, the government says it reserves the right to make showing the pass compulsory at a later date.

What else will the pass allow people to do?

From 19 July, the NHS Covid Pass, or equivalents in other parts of the UK, will allow fully vaccinated adults to avoid quarantine when they return from all amber-list countries. - except France.

In addition, from 7 August in Wales double vaccinated adults will no longer have to self-isolate if a close contact tests positive for Covid.

And from 16 August fully vaccinated adults and under-18s in England also won't have to self-isolate if a close contact tests positive for Covid.

Scotland plans to introduce similar rules for adults, and is considering whether it can do the same for under-18s.
