The Stay Safe Board / Re: What should be the essential data on a Covid passport?

I think I am in trouble.  I took a careful look at my Covid Card. It is filled in very carefully and correctly but under Healthcare Professional or Clinic Site it is Stamped SLCoHD. Yes that is where I went to have both shots done.

I would have to explain  I had both first and second shots  done at Salt Lake County (Utah) Health Department.

The surname Pescod is derived from the word "peascod" or "peapod," a sack in which peas were kept. This word was originally derived from the Old English words "peose" and "pise," which mean "pea," and "codd," which means "bag." The Pescod name was occupational for a seller of peas.

Wells is the smallest city in England with about 12,000 inhabitants. It can call itself a city because of the famous 13 th century Cathedral.
