What is a vaccine passport and how do I get one?

WHAT IS A VACCINE PASSPORT?

As of September 1, people 13 years and older travelling outside of Eeyou Istchee but within Quebec will need to show proof of vaccination to access certain non-essential businesses and services where the risk of COVID-19 transmission is high.

This proof of vaccination is being referred to as a vaccine passport. One of the ways to show proof of vaccination is the electronic vaccine passport app called VaxiCode.

The vaccine passport aims to protect people who are not vaccinated and makes it possible for businesses to stay open. To give people time to adapt to the new system, the province won’t enforce the rules until September 15.

If you choose to use the app

Follow instructions on the Quebec Ministry of Health website to add a proof of vaccination in VaxiCode. Your status in the VaxiCode app will be shown in green (adequately protected) 7 days after receiving your 2nd dose.

WHERE YOU NEED TO USE IT

At this time, the vaccine passport system is not in effect in Eeyou Istchee, but you will need to show proof of vaccination if you are returning to Eeyou Istchee.   

In the rest of Quebec, you will need to show your vaccine passport to access events, performances, sports, casinos, cinemas, bars, restaurants, and more. The vaccine passport will not be required for essential services like school or clinics. 

Do not share a photo of your proof of vaccination on social media. Keep your proof of vaccination to yourself.

Everyone who is vaccinated can now request electronic proof of vaccination (with a QR code) through a Quebec website by following the instructions on this page. People 18 and older who haven’t been vaccinated yet or still need a 2nd dose can sign up for an appointment on Clic-Santé.

The Delta variant is more contagious and can cause more severe disease.  A person with the Delta variant will infect more people than if they had other variants. The Delta variant may lead to more hospitalizations and complications.
