Ontario Health Minister Christine Elliott reportedly told journalists today that it was "essential" for Ontarians to receive proof that they'd been vaccinated.

Elliott said proof of having received the COVID-19 vaccine would be important for allowing people to travel more and go to the movies, according to CP24.

That is going to be really important for travel purposes, perhaps for work purposes and for going to theatres or cinemas. Christine Elliott

Elliott reportedly confirmed the Ontario government will be creating a form of documentation so people can prove they have had the vaccine.

She also stated that these cards would be important in "any other areas where people will be in closer physical contact." 

In a press conference on Monday, Doug Ford told Ontarians that the vaccine would not be mandatory. 

But those who do not take the vaccine could face some restrictions in the province.

Ontario could receive its first batch of the Pfizer/BioNTech vaccine as early as next week, according to Ford.

They will be given out to health care workers, long-term care residents, and the "most vulnerable" of Ontarians first, according to the province.
