Quebec to start Vaccine Passports - September
Quebec will launch its COVID-19 vaccine passport system as of September, Health Minister Christian Dubé announced Tuesday.
With infections on the rise and an “inevitable fourth wave on the way,” Dubé laid out the details of the province’s plan, which will start with gyms, bars, restaurants, festivals and events venues across the province.
The vaccine passport will only be used to access non-essential services, but it will not be required for retail stores.
Dubé also said on Tuesday that the province’s pandemic briefings will resume on a weekly basis.
Quebec will test out the passports as part of a pilot project in some businesses in the coming weeks.
