Trudeau unveils Canada’s international proof-of-vaccination for COVID-19 – National

Canada is launching a standard federal proof of COVID-19 vaccination system, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced on Thursday.

The vaccine passport will show your name, date of birth, and COVID-19 vaccine history — including which doses you got, and when you got them.

The vaccine passport will have a common look and feel across the country, according to officials, including a “Canada” wordmark in the top corner.

Canadians will be able to use the proof of vaccination system both within Canada and for international travel, the officials said.

Officials said the proof of vaccination system also complies with the SMART Health Card standard, which uses technology that will allow officials to verify and authenticate the information without giving access to any other health or identity information.

The system is also supposed to be tamper-proof, the officials added, as it detects any chances to the document after it has been issued.
