The Alberta Vaccine Passport begins Monday in the midst of the fourth rising tide

Alberta’s COVID-19 vaccine passport system went into effect Monday.

“The exemption program allows businesses and countries to operate without capacity limits and other public health measures if they require proof of vaccination or a negative test result from anyone who enters.

Applies to restaurants, nightclubs, casinos, concerts and gyms, and is not mandatory. Businesses implementing the program must continue to comply with mandatory internal camouflage requirements.

When announced by Prime Minister Jason Kenney last week, the program also applied to retail stores and libraries, but they were removed from the list of eligible businesses over the weekend.

Vaccine Passport Exclusion Program / Details

Vaccine eligible Albanians and visitors to the province are required to provide government-issued immunization evidence, a negative private test paid for COVID-19 within 72 hours, or valid evidence of medical exclusion to enter a range of social events, recreational and discretionary and businesses.

Businesses and service providers that implement the exemption program can serve immediately and without restriction anyone who:

  • From September 20 to October 25, there is valid evidence of a single vaccine dose taken two or more weeks before the time of service; or
  • From 26 October onwards, there is evidence of a complete series of vaccines with the second dose taken two weeks or more before the time of service; or
  • Has the documentation of a medical exemption from a physician or nurse practitioner; or
  • There is evidence of a recent (within the previous 72 hours) negative COVID-19 test (either PCR or Rapid Test). The province said the test could not be from Alberta Health Services or Alberta Precision Laboratories.

Those under the age of 12 do not need to give immunization tests or a negative test, as they are not eligible to be vaccinated.

Kenney had previously objected to a vaccine passport for what he said were privacy concerns, but said last week a necessary measure was taken to protect Alberta hospitals facing the prospect of overload in the fourth wave of the pandemic.

Starting Sunday, the Alberts were able to download the cards with the dates they received their vaccinations, and a health ministry spokeswoman says work continues on a safer QR code that will be available in the coming weeks .
