To Get Your Proof of Vaccination:
We are honoured that so many of you have journeyed this far with us. The paper receipts issued at the time of vaccination are valid receipts.
We want to make sure you get the proof of vaccine you need.
Here are your options:
WHEN YOU GET YOUR BOOSTER.
If you received your second vaccine dose more than 6 months (24 weeks) ago, you are now eligible for your third (booster) vaccine. This will be same Pfizer vaccine you got earlier. It is designed to increase your resistance to COVID-19, and its available now. Please make an appointment with our staff at 613-740-0999.
When you come in for your booster we will issue you with a Proof of Vaccine you can carry with you. The Akausivik vaccine receipt is recognized and valid.

TO GET THE ONTARIO VACCINE RECEIPT
If you are planning to travel you may prefer to have a vaccine receipt through COVaxON. That's the Ontario system used to record COVID-19 vaccinations.
