Vaccine records available at local registry offices
Albertans can now go to a local registry office to get a printed version of their COVID-19 vaccine information.
In a news release Monday, officials said that starting Tuesday, citizens can request a printed version of their vaccination card at no cost.
They will need to provide the month and year of any dose of vaccination, their Alberta Personal Health Number and their date of birth.
“We want to make it as easy as possible for Albertans to provide proof of vaccination so they can continue to safely enjoy events and services in their communities,” said Nate Glubish, Minister of Service Alberta.
“That’s why we are working with registry agents across the province to help Albertans get a printed copy of their vaccination records, at no cost, which they can use immediately.”
As of Monday, temporary health measures are now in effect for restaurants, nightclubs, casinos, bingo halls, VLT lounges, movie theatres, recreation and fitness facilities among others to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
Those places that are participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program require Albertans to show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of visiting the business.
Albertans are also able to use their existing immunization records, including those received at their vaccination appointment or saved from MyHealth Records.
The province plans on releasing a QR code version of immunization records in the coming weeks.
This story was updated Tuesday to show the restrictions do not apply to retail and shopping malls, events in private dwellings, food courts, libraries, places of worship, personal and wellness services among others.
