Quebec Is Giving Out QR Codes To Prove You’ve Been Vaccinated Against COVID-19

It's "a QR code that will be provided by email."

Trending Editor

Provincial officials have revealed that proof of vaccination in Quebec will soon come in electronic form, with vaccinated Quebecers set to receive QR codes from May 13.

During a press conference last week, the province's health minister Christian Dubé confirmed those who've received their first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine will be offered electronic proof from Thursday onwards.

Dubé described it as "a QR code that will be provided by email to Quebecers," pretty similar to the hard copy received after getting the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Its purpose is simply as a backup proof of vaccination that is more accessible and harder to lose.

Dubé stressed the electronic proof of vaccination would be optional and would only include basic information related to the dose received and the date and time of the vaccination.

While the province's health minister insisted this isn't a type of vaccine passport, local and federal officials continue to look into the concept overall.
