Unlike British Columbia and Quebec, Ontario for some reason is reluctant to issue vaccine passports and appears to be waiting for federal government action. This probably won't happen during the midst of a federal election.[emoticon]

HERE is a link to a site that allows you to print out your vaccination status. It's the only option right now for Ontario. It pales in comparison to the official document and/or mobile phone app approach used in BC and QC.


Why do you want another goverment issued scanable "passport"

What is wrong with producing a physical record of your status to the person at the door?

It prints on a 8-1/2 by 11 inch piece of paper. Problems:
1. Cumbersome to carry (especially for a male)
2. Easily forged.

I guess I'm hoping (wishfully thinking?) for an official government document that can't be replicated. Why not? We have driver's licenses, provincial health insurance cards, etc. Covid is probably gonna be around for a long time, so IMHO, governments need to act ASAP.

We will get them, they are coming. Doug see's the writing on the wall but is trying to keep his head down during the Federal Election.

It's weird but depending on where I go I have to show government ID to prove I'm old enough to have a beer. Nobody complains about that except those under the age of majority.

Canada required ID or some kind of proof of citizenship. It's pretty easy here to have ID.

An incredibly slippery slope for something of dubious value. If what we are being told about vaccinations is correct, the primary threat is to the unvaccinated. In the US, vaccines are widely available and cost free. The only people over the age of 12 who are unvaccinated are that way by choice. So they have put themselves in harms way.
Furthermore, recent studies have tended to show that vaccinated people can carry and spread a viral load equal to the unvaccinated. That means that the threat a vaccinated person creates in spreading the virus is equal to that of the unvaccinated. Therefore, being vaccinated only benefits that individual, not others around them.


The vaccinated are much less likely to catch covid. So if everyone is vaxxed those with compromised immune systems are much safer.

Last update. You are still at risk to catch, and spread covid as if you were not vaccinated. Per the CDC.

That is completely untrue and not at all what the CDC says. While vaccinated people could still catch COVID and transmit it, a vaccinated person is both significantly less likely to catch COVID and significantly less likely to transmit it to another individual. A vaccinated person is also dramatically less likely to end up with sever COVID and therefore consume medical resources. In no scenarios does a vaccine eliminate all risks associated with COVID, vaccines are about reducing risks, not eliminating them.

Here is the current CDC science brief about vaccinated individuals.
