If you’re fully vaccinated with 2 Covid shots you can now download your proof of vaccination QR code.

If you don’t have it yet click HERE to get your QR code

A question a lot of people have is how / where do I store it on my phone once I get it?

I pulled this info from the Ontario.ca website.  Hope this helps

Saving your vaccine certificate

You can save your vaccine certificate with QR code:

  • as a PDF (printed or digital version is acceptable)
  • to a mobile device, for example a smartphone or tablet
  • as a screenshot or image of your full QR code
  • in an email you send to yourself or save to your device

When you download from the portal:

  • On a desktop, right click or Ctrl+S and choose “Save as” to save the QR code to your computer, then email or send to your mobile by text.
  • On an iPhone or iPad, tap the PDF and a blue “Open in” link will appear. Click to open a menu that will allow you to email or download the certificate to your device.
  • On an Android, tap the three vertical dots icon on the top-right and then tap “Save.”

If you choose to print a copy, follow the tips for printing in the next section. Even if you have a QR code on your phone or tablet, you can always use or carry a paper copy. You can also call the vaccine contact centre for more support.

Save QR code to Apple Health

Only iPhones running iOS 15 or later can save the QR code to Apple Health at this time. After you’ve downloaded and opened your enhanced vaccine certificate on your desktop computer:

  1. Open your iPhone camera.
  2. Point the camera at the QR code. Once the QR code is in focus and centered on your screen, your phone will scan it automatically.
  3. Once it scans the code, save it to your Apple Health.

Tips for printing your proof

Make sure to:

  • print in black and white, high print quality
  • print the QR code so that it measures 60 mm x 60 mm

Do not:

  • photocopy the QR code
  • shrink the QR code to a size smaller than 60 mm x 60 mm
  • use textured or grainy paper (for example, card stock)
  • use coloured or lower quality ink
  • fold, stain, crumple, rip or smudge the paper with the QR code

Laminating the QR code or putting it behind a glossy barrier (a lanyard, for example) may generate a yellow warning screen if a bright light is reflecting off the surface.

If this happens, businesses can always review the visitor’s government-issued, paper or mobile, enhanced vaccine certificate.

Tips for images or PDF proof

Make sure to:

  • adjust the brightness of your screen for easier scanning
  • screenshot or screen grab the entire QR code
  • show the QR code directly to the camera and not from behind plexiglass or glass
  • translate your proof of vaccination if it’s not in English or French

Do not:

  • send or scan a QR code using a non-government website or application, for example by email or over messaging app, Zoom or Teams call
  • scan a QR code issued through a non-government website or app
  • scan the QR code through protective plexiglass or a car window
