The new proof of vaccination QR code will be the only form of vaccination record accepted beginning November 15th.
Any organization taking part in the Restrictions Exemptions Program will need to see your QR code, a privately paid for negative COVID-19 test result, or medical exemption.
Albertans can find their QR code at Alberta.ca/covidrecords where it can be saved to your phone or downloaded and printed.
If you need assistance accessing or printing your record you can visit a participating registry office where they will print it off for you for free or call 811 to have your QR code mailed to you.
First Nations and military vaccination records are the only exceptions to the mandatory QR code rule.
