To ask the Scottish Government how many people have (a) successfully downloaded Covid Vaccination Status QR codes via the NHS Scotland Covid Status App, (b) been issued paper Covid Vaccination Certificates, (c) downloaded PDF Covid Vaccination Certificates and (d) obtained proof of COVID-19 vaccination status through NHS Scotland in total.

Public Heath Scotland publish a weekly COVID-19 statistical report every Wednesday which includes this information.

As at 15 November 2021 the:

  • COVID Status app had been downloaded over 1.5 million; and separately
  • vaccination status letter has been requested in paper copies 478,014 times; and
  • downloaded in PDF format over 1.2 million times.

A single user may choose to download the App or PDF on multiple devices, and may request a replacement of paper copies so it is not currently possible to identify the total number of people who have obtained proof overall.
