Vaccination Certificates

As per the government's regulations and guidance:


As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians will need to provide proof of full vaccination (two doses + 14 days) and proof of identity to be eligible to access certain non-essential services and locations. A detailed list of where you will need to present your proof-of-vaccination can be found here.

People with a recognized medical reason will be exempt, as will children ages 11 and younger.

The first step of the program will rely on the vaccine receipts we received after each dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, plus a piece of government-issued photo ID (such as a Driver's License, Ontario Photo ID card, or OHIP card).

If you do not have your receipts, those with green OHIP cards can download them here. If you have a red-and-white health card, or you do not have access to a computer or printer, you can contact the provincial vaccination booking line to order a copy of your receipts.

As of October 22, an enhanced vaccine certificate and a verification app with a QR code will be available as well.

More information about what the enhanced certificate will entail, and whether there will be an updated option (other than your vaccination receipts and ID) for those who do not have a smartphone, will be made available in the coming weeks.

If you haven't been vaccinated yet, please book your appointment today, so that you will be able to receive your second dose as soon as possible and get your vaccination certificate.
