What if I don't have a health card? What if I got one of my vaxx doses outside Ontario?
Ontario is officially launching its vaccine certificate program on September 22, and earlier today, the Ford administration laid out all the details of where and how to use them when they finally roll out.
The Ministry of Health answered some questions and concerns you might have about getting a vaccine certificate.
What if I got one of my vaccine doses outside Ontario?
Any Ontarian who got their first or second dose should reach out to their local public health unit so that their vaccine information can be recorded. You'll then get an Ontario receipt that you can access or print out from the provincial booking portal.
Proof of identity and proof of vaccination will be required.
What if I don't have a health card?
If you don't have a health card, you'll have to contact your local public health unit to have your identity verified in order to receive a COVID ID/Personal Access Code. Once you have that code, you can call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 to arrange to get your vaccine receipt.
What if I have a red and white health card?
Those who have a red and white health card can also call Ontario's Vaccine Contact Centre to make arrangements to get their proof of vaccination receipt.
What if I don't have an address?
Once again, the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre will be there to help. Give them a call and they'll arrange to have your proof of vaccination receipt delivered to a family member, trusted friend, or community organization.
What if I don't have a printer?
Right now, the Ministry is working on additional support and services to help Ontarians get their proof of vaccination, which also includes requesting a copy of their certificate to be sent by mail.
But if you don't have access to a computer or a printer, you can call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre to get a copy. The provincial government also recommends going to your local library to use their printer or having a trusted friend print your proof of vaxx for you.
In Ontario, a vaccine passport is required to access some events, services and businesses, including restaurants and bars.
