Proof of vaccination:
- The vaccination receipts issued at AIFHT are consistent with any formal documentation required to verify proof of vaccination status, for school, travel, long-term care facilities, etc.
- If you were vaccinated early in the pandemic, and received a receipt signed by physician or without the Ontario ministry logo on it, we are re-issuing receipts for those that need one with Ministry logo.
- If you have misplaced your first or second dose receipts, we will gladly re-issue them for anyone who needs one.
- The Akausivik vaccine receipts will be a part of the switch to the provincial enhanced vaccine certificate system, just as all other vaccine receipts from public health, province, hospitals, pharmacies will make that transition. In the meantime, the province of Ontario has confirmed that our Akausivik hardcopy receipts remain valid after Oct 22nd.
