Library staff can access the online Ontario Health system for you, and print a proof of vaccination for a small fee.

You need to provide:

  • your green photo health (OHIP) card (numbers from both the front and back of the card, expired cards will be accepted)
  • your date of birth (also shown on the health card)
  • your postal code (the one associated with your health card)
  • consent to access your online vaccination record

Please note: we print but do not laminate the official document. You can choose paper (25c), or we can shrink it and print on waterproof NeverTear synthetic ($1.00).

If you do not want to provide your health card to Library staff, we can instead help you to print a copy yourself on the library computers or help you to use our remote printing service.

If you have a red and white health card, call the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900. The call centre agent can email you a copy of your receipt.

Do I still have to practice public health measures like wearing a mask and physical distancing after I’m vaccinated?

Yes. Until a vaccine is widely available and a large percentage of the population becomes immune to COVID-19, we all have to continue to follow public health measures and rules for our region and continue to take everyday actions to help stop the spread of the virus. Why?

  • While the vaccine(s) offers protection against COVID-19, there is not sufficient data yet on prevention of transmission.
  • It takes time for a vaccine to develop its protective effects (i.e. a month or longer).
  • We are still experiencing high COVID-19 infection rates, which has placed intense strain on our hospitals and health systems, as well as the health care workers who have been on the front lines of this crisis for many months.
  • Not everyone will get the vaccine, meaning there will still be a risk of transmission.
  • For more information: About COVID-19 Vaccines (publichealthgreybruce.on.ca)

For these reasons it is important that everyone, including those who have been vaccinated, continue to physical distance, wear a mask when we can, and wash/sanitize our hands frequently.
