Booster shots to be added to Covid-19 travel pass

The government announced today (November 19) that it would add booster shots to the Covid–19 pass for outbound international travel, though it added they would not be added to the domestic pass at this time.

The Department of Health and Social Care said travellers who have had a booster or a third dose would be able to demonstrate their vaccine status through the NHS Covid Pass from today.

The addition will enable those who have had their booster or third dose to travel to countries including Israel, Croatia and Austria who have already introduced a time limit for the Covid-19 vaccine to be valid for quarantine free travel.

Booster and third doses will not be added to the domestic ‘Covid Pass’ as it is not a current requirement for individuals to receive booster doses to qualify as fully vaccinated. A booster is not necessary to travel into England.
