Ontario's vaccination certificate plan and new names of the vaccines

by 22q Administrator

Starting September 22nd, 2021 (Wednesday), Ontarians who are at least 12 years old will need to prove that they are vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) before entering or using non-essential businesses or services. You will need to show a piece of ID and your vaccination certificates, and the name and date of birth must match on these documents. Please see our section on Ontario’s Vaccination Certificate Plan for more information.

On September 16, 2021, Health Canada formally granted full approval for the two COVID-19 vaccines manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna to be used in individuals aged 12 and above in Canada. AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine is still authorized under an interim order. All three vaccines are now known by their new brand name. Please see our section on Information about COVID-19 Vaccines.
