I’ve been asked to explain what I did to obtain my QR code stored in Adobe Acrobat.

The first step is to check you already have the Adobe Acrobat Reader app installed on your phone.

Adobe Acrobat Reader – from Google Play

The next step is to log on to the NHS website where you can book vaccination appointments and also download a PDF copy of your vaccination status.

NHS Scotland

When logged in click on Vaccination Status and scroll down to the bottom. There should be two buttons, one saying Request paper copy and the other Download now. Select Download now.

Now launch the Adobe Acrobat app and search for ‘vaccination‘ and it should find your PDF called Vaccination Status just downloaded from NHS Scotland. This should be valid for one year (as opposed to the 3 days validity on QR codes from the NHS Scotland Status app).
