COVID-19 proof of vaccination credential service available for Yukoners

An online service to provide a proof of vaccination credential is now available to Yukoners. The credential is a secure, government-issued proof of your COVID-19 vaccination status.

Through the new online service, Yukoners have the option to receive a digital copy or print a paper copy of their vaccination credential, which contains features to ensure the document is authentic and verified. The credential is more secure than the wallet-sized vaccination card Yukoners received when they were administered their COVID-19 vaccines.

The vaccination card Yukoners received when they were immunized proves they are vaccinated and is currently accepted as proof in many situations. However, in the near future this will likely not be accepted for some purposes, such as international travel. The new credential format is part of ongoing efforts in Canada and across the globe to standardize proof of vaccination.

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination is needed when returning to Canada from international travel and the credential can be used as proof of vaccination in other jurisdictions that may require it to attend post-secondary schools or access non-essential services.

Yukoners can request their proof of vaccination credential online at yukon.ca/vaccine-proof or on the phone via the COVID-19 InfoLine at 1-877-374-0425, seven days a week, 7:30 a.m, to 8 p.m.

Proof of vaccination will be a critical service as we forge ahead and learn to live with COVID-19. Providing Yukoners with access to a proof of vaccination credential is one way to support people who may be travelling to visit friends and family or moving to other parts of the country for post-secondary school. The new vaccination credential is secure proof of your vaccination status and is in a format accepted in other jurisdictions across the country. We are pleased to be able to support Yukoners with the tools they need to travel and go places they may want to that require proof of vaccination.
