Ontario’s mandatory vaccine certificate program could be in place until at least spring 2022 – CTV

September 22, 2021

TORONTO — The scientific director of Ontario’s COVID-19 Science Advisory Table believes the province’s proof-of-vaccination system could be lifted in the spring of 2022, assuming individuals continue to follow public health measures, get the shot and there are no further mutations of the Delta variant.

Dr. Peter Jüni told CTV News Toronto’s Life Unmasked team that if things go well, he anticipates the certificates could be lifted by March or April.

“This is one of the most important characteristics of such a vaccine certificate program, it is temporary. Period. This is not a tokenism for something that should become permanent,” he said.

“If we only have to deal with Delta, it’s relatively likely that you know, March or April 2022, we will start to move into endemicity, we can open more, we can let go with the certificates.”
