According to the president of the Association of Medical Officers of Health, Ontario’s health units may create their own vaccine certificate if the government doesn’t roll out a province-wide system. Dr. Paul Roumeliotis said medical officers of health agreed on Wednesday to make their own vaccine certificate system in each jurisdiction.
Dr. Roumeliotis added “We want a provincial one, let’s make it clear. It would be easier if it’s provincial because then it’s across the board and there won’t be interregional differences.” He explained that “We need something digital, something that’s confidential and an alternative card, Manitoba has that as well, Quebec and B.C. all have those alternatives.”
Quebec’s passport will take effect on September 1 and will be used to access non-essential services. British Columbia has recently announced plans for a province-wide vaccine passport. Dr. Roumeliotis said “In the first place, we do need something more digital and that can also be printed, like a card,… We also need to have some kind of mandate, like B.C. and Quebec.”
