It's not a vaccine passport, it's a convenient card-sized printout.

That's how the provincial government is describing their new proof of vaccination records introduced today (Sept. 14)

Starting tomorrow, Albertans will be able to print a copy of their card-sized COVID-19 proof of vaccination or show it on their phone or tablet.

Work is also underway to make proof of vaccination available through a QR code.

The QR code is expected to be available in the coming weeks.

It's recommended Albertans plan ahead and save their proof of vaccination card on their phone or print it out before they need it.

MyHealth Records could experience high traffic volume before major events and long weekends.

Albertans who need support can contact the MyHealth Records support line at 1-844-401-4016 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, and on weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Many businesses have asked for the province to put out a passport, and proof of vaccination will be needed to get into sporting events, theatres and restaurants.

Several Alberta post-secondary institutions have also announced they'll be requiring proof of vaccination for those entering their campuses.
