Starting September 1st, 2021, the vaccination passport will allow people age 13 and up, who are adequately protected or who have a clinical contraindication to COVID-19 vaccination, to access designated places.
The list of places where the vaccination passport will be required is available on the webpage : https://www.quebec.ca/en/health/health-issues/a-z/2019-coronavirus/progress-of-the-covid-19-vaccination/covid-19-vaccination-passport/places-and-activities-requiring-covid-19-vaccination-passport.
How the vaccine passport works
When accessing a place requiring the vaccination passport, you will have to show a QR code containing your protection status as proof of vaccination against COVID-19. You can show proof in one of three ways:
- On paper
- In a PDF on your mobile device
- On the VaxiCode application
Whichever method you choose, you must also show photo ID.
People who have received their vaccination outside Québec.
– If you are a Québec resident, you can sign up your vaccination at the Québec Vaccination Registry. The procedure to follow is available on the webpage
– If you are travelling to Québec, you won’t be eligible to receive a Québec vaccination passport, but you will be allowed to access non-essential activities requiring the vaccination passport by showing photo ID and proof, issued by your country or Canadian province, that you have had two doses of one of the following recognized vaccines:
- Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) * only one dose required
The document presented in evidence must contain the name of the person, the vaccines received and the dates of inoculation (one date in case of Janssen). It could be a QR code that meets international criteria (SMART), which can be read by the Québec application, or another proof of vaccination issued by a competent authority (written proof). If the document presented is in a language other than French or English, an official translation attesting to the validity of the document may be required.
