With news that indoor venues in England will be required to ask for proof of vaccination from the end of the month, the Manx gov is urging residents to ensure they register with NHS Digital.
Manx residents cannot yet use the NHS App to prove their vaccine status, but can get an internationally recognised QR code from NHS Digital in either paper or digital form.
A spokesman for the Manx gov told Gef: ‘The Isle of Man Government currently has no plans to introduce regulations in relation to vaccine passports, but the situation will remain under regular review. Residents travelling off-island are urged to confirm what may be required of them in order to ensure access to events and venues, and to avoid disappointment.’
As outlined above, Manx residents can access the NHS Pass though NHS Digital, to read more about how to do that, click here.
Alternative, to access the service, you need to click here and register with the UK’s NHS to create a secure login to access your health record online. The web based document is valid for 30 days only but can be refreshed at any time.
If you don’t fancy a digital version, a paper copy is available via the NHS central customer service centre in the UK. To access this, Freephone 0808 1624 119 and they’ll post it to you.
For callers to the Freephone service, personal details must match those held on record. Where they differ, if for example you’ve moved house and not told your GP, your patient record will need to be updated before the pass can be sorted.
In addition, a paper certificate can be applied for online without an NHS login, by clicking here.
