Sask. launches QR code for vaccination records

Saskatchewan has updated individual COVID-19 vaccination records to include a QR code, giving residents an easier way to verify their vaccine status.

The government announced anyone with a MySaskHealthRecord account is now able to view the new vaccination record.

The vaccination record includes the person’s name, type of vaccine administered, date, country of issuance and a lot number.

Saskatchewan residents no longer need a PIN to sign up for an eHealth account. The move was made to make it easier for citizens to access their COVID-19 vaccine information through MySaskHealthRecord.

The government said wallet cards showing vaccines administered will also be considered acceptable proof of vaccination.

The QR codes can be scanned by the SK Vax Verifier app. The app will show a green indicator to verify if a person if fully vaccinated and a red indicator to show they are not. The province said information is secures and is not viewed, saved, or retained in the scanning process.

By the end of September, the Government of Saskatchewan will launch the Saskatchewan Vaccine Wallet App on the Google Play or Apple App stores, which will allow residents to download their vaccine record and have it easily accessible on their phone.
