Reporting your COVID-19 vaccination(s) in the provincial database (COVaxON)
If your COVID-19 vaccination records are not in the provincial online database, we encourage you to submit your proof of vaccinations to help public health agencies monitor vaccine coverage. If you were vaccinated in Ontario, your records are likely already in the database. You can verify and access your records online through the provincial system (COVaxON). For example, your records are in the system if you were vaccinated at a pharmacy, a public health clinic, or by a health care provider in Ontario.
If you have received COVID-19 vaccination outside of Ontario or Canada you will need to submit your proof of vaccination to have your COVID-19 immunization record documented in the provincial system (COVaxON) to obtain the enhanced vaccination certificate with QR code.
Proof of vaccination
Once your vaccination records (for example, immunization record or proof of vaccination certificate (PVC)) are added to the provincial online database, you will be able to access a digital enhanced vaccination record with a QR code.
