International Vaccination Proof

Just got my second dose in Ontario, Canada, and our proof of vaccination is a pdf from the government. Would these be acceptable? 

Not travelling until January, so I'm sure everything will change between now and then, but doesn't hurt to ask.

You also have to a printed copy.  I am sure by January it will change.  It would be nice if there is a worldwide vaccine passport, which I highly doubt will happen.  Governments around the world would never be able to agree on it.  Countries do not recognize all vaccines.  Most countries do not recognize Sputnik IV, some do not recognize Astra Zeneca , etc...

Bonus of going to pharmacy is getting a real printed label. Put them in the passport, extras I will stick on a flat credit card plastic and then laminate. Honor system was never going to work. Next buzzword will be "booster" shots. The un vaxxed will keep this bug alive and mutating for many years.

The CDC vaccine advisory group met yesterday and discussed booster shots, but no one seemed to think it was something necessary at this time.

I am actually wondering if the info that we upload into the ArriveCAN app can serve as proof.  Because that should show our vaccination status and it's a government run app.

I completed my online check in for Freedom.  It did not ask me to upload or submit proof of vaccination anywhere....

Not now, but I can see this being like the seasonal flu shot. The shorter vax intervals in the US vs Canada is a story still to be told I expect. All the stories i've read is the longer interval is better  than shorter for max anti body levels. But then all could be back to square one if it bounces back and forth between vaxed and unvaxxed people and we get a new variant. Fall , winter will be the real test.

I think they are going to call you and ask. Please clear something up for me, is the Canadian government not allowing you out of the country or telling you if you leave you will not have health insurance?

They actually just fished someone out of the Detroit River the other day, they suspect he was trying to cross.  No joke. lol

This shouldn't be funny but I can't help but chuckle about it. Especially contemplating that he did it just to get on a cruise. lmao

 

but in all seriousness -hope he's okay. From what I hear, there's a serious undertow in that river that makes trying to swim across almost deadly

At the moment, you cannot cross by land borders if it is non-essential.  You can fly out of the Canada, but you have to quarantine for 14 days when you get back and get testing done over that time period.

As of July 5th, if you are fully vaxxed, you can fly out of the country and return by air without quarantine. No word on the land border (which personally for me is the important thing because I drive and fly out of the US).

Trudeau said on Tuesday, that our border should open in a matter of weeks, not months, for Canadians and Americans, so I am hoping that includes land border as well.

Only travellers with approved vaccines will be allowed to enter without quarantine.   The only approved vaccines for Canada are Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson. 

All others such as Sputnik V, Sputnik Lite, Sinopharm,etc... are not approved and would considered not vaccinated.

I'm surprised that the 19-20yo crowd hadn't thought of that in order to get into Windsor.

Yeah I get the feeling that the feds are working with their US counterparts to get a common set of standards for exit/entry. AZ not being approved in the US could be a sticking point, seeing as a lot of Canadians (myself included) have gotten at least one shot of that.

Our PHO said that there are discussions happening and it looks like all vaccines recognized by the WHO will be accepted, whether they are approved in certain countries or not (she specifically referenced US recognizing AZ)
 

The VAST majority of UK has been jabbed with AZ - so a minority of Canadians that received it (me included) need not worry.

I got a vax very early on and they ran out of cards so my card was a photocopy of a blank card. I insisted on getting an actual card at shot #2 and was lucky enough the same nurse was there to sign again for shot #1 but I know numerous people who's card is a photocopy of a blank card filled out in pen. This happened when they discovered the vials had more doses that anticipated so there was more vaccine than cards at some locations in the early days. My state (california) has since issued digital cards if you need a replacement or if you want a backup. I'm not here to defend California, admittedly the place is nuts but people lose paper cards, people's houses burn down, paper gets wet, things happen and mandating the original card seems a bit arcane. Since California is about 1/8 of the US population and has a digital vaccine card now, I would imagine acceptance will be forthcoming.

We have an app in Alberta called My Health Records with an immunization tab that can be used for proof of vaccination.

If you leave Canada you don't have health insurance elsewhere. Canada doesn't have health insurance. It's a government run health system, paid for by taxes.

Can you purchase insurance if you so desire?

For travelling, yes. I have it already through work.

You can also buy insurance for stuff not covered by the government. Dentists, eye glasses, massage therapists, prescription drug coverage etc. Again, covered by my work, but not everyone is.

My shots were administered by our local health unit.  They provided a print out (similar to receipt paper) for proof of vaccination and also an electronic copy was sent to my e-mail.  Keeping those in our safe at home.  Hope that is sufficient proof when we are cruising in Feb 2022.
