You are able to add your family members’ QR codes to your app as well (ex. spouse and children). If you haven’t already received your QR code, simply go to this website and enter your information. Once the form is complete you will be provided with a download link. Note: you will need your medicare number and the date of your first vaccination in order to complete the form.

The following are some of the activities that will require proof of vaccination for those who are 13 years old or more. Note: The complete list is currently only available in French.
