August 10, 2021

MONTREAL — A vaccination passport will be introduced in Quebec on Sept. 1, Quebec’s health minister revealed on Tuesday.

“To avoid another lockdown we will use a vaccination passport,” said Christian Dubé, who was joined by public health strategic medical advisor Dr. Yves Jalbert and strategic advisor to the province’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign, Caroline Roy, at the briefing in Montreal.

Dubé said the vaccination passports will be used to give access to vaccinated people to public events, training facilities, bars and restaurants.

“Our objective is that the vaccination passport will allow those people who are adequately vaccinated, to have access – and I want you to listen to these words – to have access to public events where there’s a lot of people and those activities that we call high contact rate, high socialization rates so for those activities and services that are non essential – please listen to this – to be protected,” said Dubé. “For the time being, the vaccination passport will not be applicable to retail stores.”
