The NHS app that lets people prove their vaccine status is not working for some users, a problem that could cause havoc for those trying to use it for travel.
An error message when people try to access their Covid pass says: “Please try again later.”
NHS Digital confirmed there was an issue in a statement on its Twitter feed, where it says the latest information will be posted. A post said: “There are currently issues with accessing the Covid Pass on the NHS app and website. We are investigating the issue and will update as soon as we can.”
