  • Got pinged by the app a few days ago. I'm double vaxxed and having googled it advice says I needn't isolate even if a housemate has Covid.... so what the fuck.

    I'm sure I was supposed to update the app at some point with my vax status? But it's actually as clear as mud. My info / interactions with the Zoe app are so very much more useful.

    I've deleted the app. I can't be taking time off work because can't sort it's advice out. Am I being reckless or is the app just as shite as I think it is?

  • Advice is clear; double jabbed mean you can get tested while going to work

  • That's how I read it. I've got 6 negative Laterals under my belt so far this week and a pcr incoming. Not sure I needed the damn app popping up and telling me to isolate without any advisory caveats.


  • I'm sure I was supposed to update the app at some point with my vax status?

    The NHS App has vaccination status.

    The NHS Covid-19 app is the one that powers the pinging thing.

    I haven't deleted the NHS Covid-19 app as some places I go to still require people to scan their QR code to come in (although most don't care the odd one has insisted). I have disabled the 'Contact tracing' mode in the app though, so I won't ever get pinged through that.

    If you're worried about it then do some lateral flow tests every other day. And/or book a PCR test via . One of the reasons for getting a PCR test with no symptoms is "you’ve been in contact with someone who’s tested positive" which sounds like it covers your situation. You can get it posted to you and then you post it back when done and await the result, or you can book yourself in at a test center and do it that way.

  • In your position I wouldn't self-isolate but I wouldn't delete the app either. If you test positive for some reason many weeks from now you will be able put that result in the app and then the people who registered your app pings who aren't double jabbed can self-isolate.

  • Finally got it all sorted thanks though.

    Rest before after and to send location mostly for safety of re entry…

  • A trial that may be of interest to anyone who's just tested positive:

  • Update on my covid pass issue. Wasn't able to fully access the NHS app as unable to upload a verification video with my Pixel (Android) phone, so dug around in a drawer and found an old iPhone. Put the NHS app on that as well as my regular phone. Uploaded a copy of my id and did a verification video, and within an hour received an email saying I'd passed the id checks :)

    Of course, it turns out I don't need to go to Spain in a hurry after all.
