People in Wales will soon have to produce a covid vaccine pass to attend nightclubs and large scale events in Wales.

This measure will be rolled out across Wales from October 11, but how can you get hold of a vaccine pass?

The vaccine pass process in Wales is as simple as downloading the NHS Covid Pass app, which can be used to show and share a person’s vaccine status.

It also has a function that allows negative lateral flow test results from the last 48 hours to be inputted.

It is also possible to download a vaccine pass from the NHS' website without using the app.

Alternatively, you can have an NHS Covid Pass letter sent to you in the post, however, this is only for vaccination status.

Over the coming days and weeks, it is expected that further information and guidance will be published by the government, in a bid to make the rollout of this process as easy as possible.

First Minister Mark Drakeford said: “My message to you today is a simple but serious one – the pandemic is not over and we all need to take steps to protect ourselves and our loved ones.

"We have high levels of the virus in our communities and while our fantastic vaccination programme has helped stop thousands more people from becoming seriously ill or dying, the pressure on the NHS is increasing.

“We hope introducing the requirement to show a COVID pass will help keep venues and events – many of which have only recently started trading again – open.

“Showing a COVID Pass is already part of our collective effort to keep businesses open with some major events, such as the successful Green Man Festival, using it. We will continue to work closely with all businesses affected to ensure a smooth introduction and operation of this system.

“We want to do everything we can to Keep Wales Safe as we head into the autumn.”

Full details of the passes and how to access them can be found on the Government's website.
