NHS COVID pass app and website goes offline leaving passengers unable to board flights

LONDON Aug 19: The NHS Covid app and website on Thursday evening were shown a message saying it was unavailable. The fault left some travellers struggling to board flights, said reports.

The NHS Covid Pass is working again, NHS Digital has said later. “The Covid-19 Pass is now working as normal and we will continue to monitor overnight,” NHS Digital tweeted.

The pass provides a digital record of a person’s vaccination status.

Users trying to access proof of their vaccination status via the NHS App and website found that the service was inaccessible on Thursday.

“We are sorry the NHS COVID pass is currently unavailable. At this time there is no alternative route for accessing this information via the NHS App or online,” an error message read.

“If you have already downloaded the information, then your access should not be affected.”

On social media, several travellers said they had been unable to check in at airports because they were unable to prove their vaccination status.
