An interim vaccine certificate option has been launched to cover those travelling from Northern Ireland next week.

An app-based certificate for Northern Ireland is due to be launched next week, but the interim process will allow those travelling between July 20 and 25 to download a certificate and QR code at home which offers protection against fraud.

Anyone travelling after July 25 is advised to wait until the launch of the app.

The Department of Health say the interim process will make it easier and quicker for people to access their certificate without having to collect them in person.

Applications for those travelling on Monday July 19 however will not be processed after 5pm today.
