Quebec vaccine QR code

A QR code to prove you’ve been vaccinated in Quebec is now available

The government is still exploring whether these codes will be used as vaccine passports.

This morning Quebec Health Minister Christian Dubé shared instructions for how to download a QR (Quick Response) code to prove you’ve received one or two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. Dubé noted that 84,000 people have already done so, and that public health is still exploring how the code will be used. Vaccine passports are used in other parts of the world to allow entry to reopened businesses and events, a concept that is being debated in Quebec and across Canada. At the moment, only the government is able to scan the codes.

Since yesterday, people can receive their proof of vaccination electronically. Already 84K people have downloaded their QR code. Public Health is continuing its intensive work on the potential use of electronic proof (of vaccination). The technical tool is ready.
