Step 1: get your vaccine certificate with QR code
Using a vaccine certificate with a QR code is not required, but it will make entering businesses and organizations easier and more convenient. You can continue to use your vaccine receipt even after vaccine certificates with a QR code are available.
If you’re not sure how to get your vaccine certificate with a QR code, you can use our online tool to help you.
You can download your enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code from Ontario’s vaccination portal. To log in securely, you need:
a green photo health (OHIP) card (you will need numbers from both the front and back of the card, expired cards will be accepted)
your date of birth
your postal code (the one associated with your health card)
If you do not have a computer, a photo health card, or need help, call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 to request a copy of your vaccine certificate by email or mail.
If you have a red and white health card
Call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 and they will email a secure URL through which individuals can access their vaccine certificate.
If you don’t have any health card or a COVID ID
You can contact your public health unit to have your identity verified and get a COVIDcovid ID (a unique number assigned to you by your public health unit in place of an Ontario health card number to obtain a copy of your vaccine certificate). You can then call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 and the contact center agent can email you a secure URL to access your vaccine receipt.
If you don’t have a computer, you can also:
visit your local library to use a public computer and internet resources
ask a trusted friend or organization to help print a copy
access a ServiceOntario location
Step 2: save or print
After you've logged in, you can:
