Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination

As of Sept. 22, 2021 certain settings will require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry. This includes higher-risk indoor public settings where face coverings can't always be worn.

With increased risk due to a fourth wave of COVID-19 driven by the Delta variant, vaccination will help to protect you against becoming ill with COVID-19. The COVID-19 vaccines approved by Health Canada are highly effective at preventing severe outcomes including hospitalizations, severe disease and death. Vaccination will not only protect you as an individual, but can help keep the people around you safe. The more people who get vaccinated, the better protected we'll be, and the sooner things will return to normal.

Showing proof of vaccination

To enter settings that need proof of vaccination, individuals must show proof that they're fully vaccinated using their vaccination receipt or enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code. Individuals who received their vaccinations in Ontario can download their vaccination certificate. You must also show a piece of government-issued ID that matches the name and date of birth on the vaccination certificate.
