Proof of vaccination
In Québec, when you get vaccinated, you are given a proof of vaccination. It is usually documented in your vaccination record or submitted in paper format. This applies to all vaccines, including COVID-19 vaccines.
For the COVID-19 vaccination campaign, you also receive, after each of your doses, by e-mail or text message the digital proof of vaccination if you provided the following information when you made an online appointment.
You will then receive automatically, within a few days of your vaccination, an e-mail message or a text message notifying you that your digital proof of vaccination is available. Instructions for downloading it will be provided in the message.
If have you not received the e-mail or text message, please visit the self-service portal to receive your proof of vaccination.

Wherever a vaccine passport is required, you need to show a QR code that contains your protection status as proof of vaccination against COVID-19. You can show proof in one of three ways:
