Had it through the post in a few days and have used it a few times at airports with no problem at all.
    I tried to do it yesterday through the NHS website. Firstly, I had to set up an NHS account with my NHS number, which I had ready. Then I was sent a verification e-mail with some numbers I had to enter. Then I was sent a verification text with some more numbers I had to enter. Then I had to scan in a copy of my passport. Then I had to take a video of myself reading out four numbers. No picture appeared on the screen when I pressed record despite my webcam being attached to the computer, turned on and working just fine (I'd been using it ten minutes before I attempted to get the Covid pass). It was a ballache. I gave up in the end as there was nothing more I could do.

    Pretty painless if you have the app maybe. I don't have the app and I don't want the ****ing thing either. Neither do I want to take my mobile phone to any of the gigs where I will need this pass, so an app is no ****ing good to me.

    Jesus, that sounds complicated. Looks like i'll have to swerve social functions and holidays with my missus. That's a real bummer...

    Re: Covid passports.

    Is the card showing your jab appointments enough?

    I don't go to gigs any more so I will only need it for the CCS if they implement it.

    No, you'll have to have an NHS Covid pass.

    I thought that they said "you'll need a covid passport or proof that you've had two jabs" or words to that effect.

    Thatís what it is. The card you got isnít good enough apparently. I have had to get one twice. The first time was time consuming and a potch but the second time I got one in a few minutes.

    each time you do sign in to your account you get a new code valid for another 30 days

    I went to France a few weeks ago and printed my codes out. each time i went to a location that requested it I just showed my piece of paper which they scanned and all good. Or showed the saved image on my phone. The printed page and the image saved to your phone has your details on it so they can cross check with your ID if required.

    Also needed to show it in Bristol for a gig and in Cardiff for the Manics last week

    It's really not that much of a problem if you prepare a little bit. Jut like having a second ticket when going to a gig and showing ID when you go to a bar.
    All very well if you are gadget savvy/IT literate. But there are huge amounts of people that are not, including City/football fans. The paper certificate option gives hope for these people, and requires making a phone call to a designated NHS number. However, from the twice thus far i have tried it has not answered (20 minutes each time). I understand the need for these things, but processes are never thought out well or take into consideration that there are many people with limited digital ability. I am of the opinion many city fans will just not bother, as it seems to much of a pain in the butt, especially to watch dross.

    This is your mate, Dapps. I donít understand your reluctance here. Please explain your reasoning. Thanks.

    I'll be getting mine now in a minute.
    Not.
    I donít understand your reasoning here. This is from your mate Dapps.

    It's determined state by state in the US, right?

    You mean the demand for proof of vaccination? That's a city thing.

    The passport apps are issued by the states. You download the app and it pulls your state vaccination records. Also, everyone has a vaccination card they got at the time of their first shot that was filled in and signed by the healthcare workers as they administered the first and second shots. Most of the apps are different, but some states use the same platform. Mine is called "Docket". There's also "Excelsior" and "NYC Covid Safe". Mine was very easy to set up, just download the app, enter your phone number and date of birth and that's it.

    That's the one I got.

    Looking to try to go to Germany before the end of the year and hoping to take in a game there. I'm really looking forward to that conversation at the turnstile with the NHS pass.

    "Vot ist dat?" 😀

    Mate, make sure the settings on your browser are set up to allow access to the camera and mic.

    I have no problem with the theory at all, but in practice itís a monumental pain in the arse.
    its really easy if you use the website. you'd have to be a special kind of stupid to find it difficult

    I think you're thinking of the much maligned NHS Track and Trace app. The NHS app is separate, although I don't think it can be used for Covid passes in Wales

    the lack of video is just a glitch. you can continue after that even if the video is not showing, just press the "continue" button (or whatever it say to continue)
