Proof of Vaccination

If you get a COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario, you should register your vaccination so you can:

  • book an appointment to stay up to date with your COVID-19 vaccinations
  • get an Ontario vaccination certificate with QR code which includes all doses of COVID-19 vaccine you have received. This may be required for some destinations for travel purposes or for employment purposes.

We only accept and process proof of COVID-19 vaccination for residents of Simcoe County or District of Muskoka. If you are not a resident of Simcoe County or District of Muskoka you will need to contact your local public health unit for directions on submitting proof of vaccination.

For Simcoe Muskoka residents, please use this secure form to submit your documentation. Submissions are processed in order of submission dates. Our turn-around time is 3-4 business days from date of submission.

To see if you are considered fully vaccinated in Ontario visit for more information.

This secure form is to be completed by people living in Simcoe Muskoka who have not updated their health card with their chosen name but would like to have their proof of vaccine certificate reflect their chosen name.

Please note: Only chosen name change requests for residents of Simcoe Muskoka will be processed. Please contact your local public health unit for assistance if you are not a resident of Simcoe Muskoka.

You will need to upload at least two valid pieces of documentation to process the name change on your vaccine certificate (one with chosen name and one with former name).  The combination of documents submitted must include name, birth date and photo ID (for those 18 years and older).

 The following are types of documentation that will be accepted:

  • Driver’s license
  • Birth certificate
  • Passport
  • Piece of registered mail
  • Pay stub
  • Student card
  • Library card
  • Club or organization ID cards
  • Government issued identification from other jurisdictions including foreign passports, other provincial or territorial health cards, or driver’s license.

If you do not have identity documentation or are unable to provide verification of primary place of residence, you can submit a letter from a community organization, your school, or your medical provider to verify your identity.

If you do not have access to a device to upload the documentation, please call us at 705-721-7520 or 1-877-721-7520 Monday to Friday 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and ask to speak to the Immunization Program at ext. 8827 and we will make arrangements for you to meet with a nurse at your closest health unit office to submit your documentation.
