App key to holidays


HOLIDAYMAK­ERS who have had both doses of a coronaviru­s vaccine will be able to “prove” their status to other countries, Health Secretary Matt Hancock, above, has announced.

He confirmed that people in England who travel abroad will be able to use the NHS app to demonstrat­e they are fully vaccinated when the ban on overseas leisure travel is lifted on Monday.

The app is currently used to book medical appointmen­ts and order repeat prescripti­ons, and is different from the Covid-19 app.
