Alberta vaccine record with QR code now required for November 15th

Those who do not have a smart device or choose not to create their digital code can get a paper copy from a local registry agent office or by calling 811

 

 

Vaccinated Albertans were informed their paper records will only be accepted until November 15th.

Earlier in the year, Alberta  introduced the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP), which allowed participating businesses to require patrons to provide proof that they have been immunized against COVID-19 in order to avoid occupancy limits and other public health restrictions.

At the time, residents could either use a paper or a QR code. Now, Chief Medical Officer Dr. Deena Hinshaw says as of Monday November 15th, those looking to attend a business, service provider, or venue utilizing the REP will need to show their QR code.

If you're looking to enter a business you need to follow these steps:

  • If the record is valid, the app will display a green checkmark and the person’s legal name and date of birth. It does not access or store any other personal information.
  • Internet connection is not required to scan codes.
  • Download the app for free from Google Play or the App Store.
  • The verifier app has been updated to scan QR codes from other provinces and territories.

You can get your QR code online here
