COVID VACCINATIONS RECEIVED OUTSIDE OF ONTARIO:

If you live in Ottawa and have received one or more doses of a COVID-19 vaccine outside of the Province of Ontario, you must provide your proof of immunization to Ottawa Public Health at the following link.  


PROOF OF VACCINATION:

If you need your COVID vaccination receipt, you can log in to the provincial portal to download or print it.


COVID VACCINE EXEMPTION LETTERS:

Please be advised that medical exemptions to the COVID vaccine are extremely rare.

As per guidance released by the Chief Medical Officer of Ontario: 

The largest group of individuals who receive a medical exception will be those with severe allergic reactions or anaphylaxis to a previous dose of a COVID-19 vaccine or to any of its components and who have been assessed by an allergist/ immunologist to review methods for possible (re)administration of a COVID-19 vaccine.

Another group of individuals who may receive a medical exemption are those who are delaying their second dose because of a diagnosed episode of myocarditis/pericarditis after receipt of an initial dose of an mRNA vaccine.
