All Clarington residents 12-and-up will require an enhanced vaccine certificate with a QR code to enter a municipal recreational facility, starting Tuesday January 4.

The rule applies to players and spectators alike.

The enhanced certificate provides proof of vaccination using an official QR code unique to each person. It is different from the vaccine receipt given to you after receiving your vaccination.

(When staff scan your QR code at the door, it only tells them if you are eligible to enter the facility. It does not allow staff to track or save any of your personal information.)

To get your enhanced vaccine certificate visit covid-19.ontario.ca/get-proof and follow the steps or call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900.

If you don’t have access to a computer or printer, you can bring your green Ontario Health card and vaccination receipts to the customer service desk at Diane Hamre Recreation complex or Courtice Community Complex between now and next Monday (today through Friday and next Monday, 8-8, Sunday 10-2) and staff will guide you through the process and print off a receipt.

If you have a red and white OHIP card, you will need to call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900, and they will mail you a copy of your certificate.

Staff at all four Clarington library branches will also be able to help print off receipts. Call 905-623-7322 or visit www.clarington-library.on.ca for branch hours.
