COVID Vaccination Record Available with QR Code
Saskatchewan citizens with a MySaskHealthRecord account at eHealth Saskatchewan are now able to view their COVID-19 vaccination record in a new format that includes a QR (Quick Response) code.
It can be downloaded/saved, printed and viewed on mobile devices.
The new one-page format replaces the COVID-19 vaccination record launched in Saskatchewan in August, which does not include a QR code. The new format with QR code also notes the individual's name, type of vaccine administered, date, country of issuance and lot number.
With the announcement Sept. 15, 2021 of stronger measures being introduced to help curb the transmission of COVID-19, anyone eligible for vaccination in Saskatchewan is encouraged to get their vaccines, and to get their COVID-19 vaccine certificate from MySaskHealthRecord. Wallet cards showing vaccines administered will also be considered acceptable proof of vaccination to meet the conditions of the public health measures.
By the end of September 2021, businesses or organizations requiring proof of vaccination will have the option to download and use a free QR code verifier app, that will be able to scan the QR code and determine if a person is fully vaccinated or not. The Saskatchewan Vaccine Verifier app (SK Vax Verifier) will be free from Google Play or Apple App stores.
An individual's vaccination information is embedded in the QR code, and when it is scanned with the SK Vax Verifier app, the app will show either a green indicator to verify the person is fully vaccinated or a red indicator to show they are not. Information is secure, and is not viewed/saved/retained in the scanning process. "Fully vaccinated" means 14 days after receiving
- the second of two doses of an mRNA vaccine (Pfizer, Moderna) or AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD (all interchangeable between the two doses), or
- 1 dose of Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) vaccine.
By the end of September, citizens may also, if they choose, acquire for free the Saskatchewan Vaccine Wallet app (SK Vax Wallet) from Google Play or Apple App stores to download their vaccine record and have it easily accessible in the SK Vax Wallet app on their phone.
To get your COVID-19 vaccination certificate with QR code through MySaskHealthRecord (or to create a new account), visit www.ehealthsask.ca/MySaskHealthRecord/MySaskHealthRecord/.
Website traffic is expected to be busy and delays may be experienced as more people sign up for MySaskHealthRecord in preparation for Oct. 1 proof of vaccination requirements. Patience is appreciated.
Once an account is created, individuals may access their COVID-19 vaccination record as well as their complete immunization history, lab test results, including COVID-19 tests, and other health history. It may take up to 24 hours for your record to be updated, after your account is activated.
