Dear <<First Name>>,
 

Today, I took my kids to get their passports renewed. Coincidentally, starting Monday Sep. 13, vaccine passports will be in place, and you will need to show proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine to access places like bars, pubs, sit-down restaurants, concerts, casinos, movie theatres, gyms, indoor recreational classes, ticketed sports events, and organized indoor events with 50 people or more. Starting October 24, you will need to show proof that you are fully vaccinated - meaning seven days have passed since your second dose. 

As a reminder, you won’t need to show proof of vaccination to do essential things. This includes going to a grocery store, pharmacy, or coffee shop, or picking up fast food or take out. It also includes banks, retail or clothing store, shelters and food banks, hairdressers or barbers, or places of worship. 

This is to keep all of us and others around us safe. For more information about the vaccine card, read below!
 

Vaccine Card

The easiest way to display your proof of vaccination is to visit here and obtain your individual QR code. Simply download or screenshot this image and save it to your smartphone so you can have it wherever you go!

Alternatively, you can print your QR code and carry the paper copy in your wallet. If you don’t have access to a smartphone or a printer, you can call 1-833-838-2323 and a representative will mail you a printed copy. If you or someone you know need information or assistance in a different language, the call centre can provide translation. The call centre is available every day from 7am to 7pm. 

Getting vaccinated is a choice. By choosing to get vaccinated, you protect kids who can’t get vaccinated and those who have higher risk of severe illness or who may not develop as strong immune response. You also choose to be able to participate in recreational activities, like going to a concert or the movie theatres or watching a Canucks game in person.

We know that vaccines are the key to putting the COVID-19 pandemic behind us. We believe that it is the best choice to protect yourself and the people you love, and to ensure you can continue to participate in the recreational activities and social events you love.

We believe that it is up to us to respect other people and their boundaries and to practice consent in all of our interactions.
