Vaccine records card available to Albertans starting Thursday

SEPT. 16 UPDATE – Availability of cards will now start Sunday.

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

“We continue to make it easier for Albertans to securely access their health information, including immunization records, in the palm of their hand any time and anywhere through MyHealth Records,” said Health Minister Tyler Shandro in a media release Tuesday. “More Albertans are signing up for this tool every day to access their health information, and if you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to sign up now.”

The province is also working on, in the coming weeks, a QR code as a faster method of showing proof of vaccination. The government is recommending Albertans “plan ahead and save their proof of vaccination card on their phone or print it out before the needed date.”
Assistance can be provided to Albertans through MyHealth Records support line at 1-844-401-4016 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, and weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.The Proof of Vaccination FAQ on alberta.ca answers common questions about getting an immunization record.
