Proof of COVID-19 Vaccination

Certain settings require proof of COVID-19 vaccination for entry. This includes higher-risk indoor public settings where face coverings can't always be worn. Starting Dec. 20, 2021, the province will also require proof of vaccination for youth aged 12 to 17 years participating in organized sports at recreational facilities.

Additionally, Niagara Region Public Health has issued a letter of instruction for sporting and recreational fitness facilities to reduce the spread of COVID-19 infections. These instructions also require proof of vaccination for all individuals aged 12 years and older entering indoor sports and recreational sports facilities, unless they have a valid medical exemption. A vaccination policy for employees of these facilities is also required.

At this time, the province has not set a date for when proof of vaccination requirements will be lifted.

Showing proof of vaccination

Beginning Jan. 4, 2022, individuals will be required to use their enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code (either digitally or through a printed copy) where proof of vaccination is required. Vaccine receipts without a QR code will no longer be valid. You must also continue to show a piece of government-issued ID that matches the name and date of birth on the vaccination certificate.
