Quebec’s vaccine passport that contains the quick response (QR) for scanning will be officially launched on September 1 and will be ready for those who have both doses in order to get into such places as movie theatres, restaurants, etc. See detailed list here. The passport is currently available to download for people who have both smartphones and android devices. But for those who don’t have either device doesn’t mean that they will be without the passport. A print Quebec vaccine passport is also available.
Quebec public health says that a printed version of the passport with the QR code can be downloaded. As well, the passport is also available in a PDF format with the code; however, a photo ID must accompany either version of the passport that you wish to possess.
The province’s homeless population, many of whom do not own a smartphone nor an android devoice, will be aided by a number of organizations and agencies to make sure those homeless individuals who are properly vaccinated get their passports and QR codes. Montreal’s Old Brewery Mission told CBC News is taking a proactive approach to this, by either printing documents, helping applicants get their QR code, or accompany them to a CLSC to get their proof of vaccination if they are not able to have it printed.
The provincial government has suggested that anyone who doesn’t have a printer, internet or a smartphone to call Quebec public health at 1-877-644-4545 for help in getting their vaccination passport. The print version of the passport will then be sent to them by mail. It is suggested that once they receive the paper vaccine passport, it should be vaccinated as a way to protect it.
