If You are a fully vaccinated Manitoban you are now eligible for the Pan-Canadian proof of vaccination credential (PVC).
The PVC is designed for those wishing to travel within Canada and internationally. Like the Manitoba Immunization Card, the PVC uses a QR code to verify your vaccination status. The enhanced card contains your first and last name, date of birth as well as the dates and types of COVID-19 vaccine.
“Manitoba is a leader in this critical area, offering the first secure immunization card in the country which has allowed our province to safely reopen, keep our schools, businesses and places of worship open, protect our hospitals and health-care staff, and has provided additional benefits to fully vaccinated Manitobans,” said Central Services Minister Reg Helwer. “The addition of the national credential is an important next step to support the safe resumption of travel within Canada and abroad for those who are fully vaccinated.”
Those who already have a Manitoba Immunization Card or are eligible to get one can request their PVC at https://immunizationcard.Manitoba.ca. Once requested the PVC will be sent to you by email as a PDF, which can be printed or stored digitally.
In November the Manitoba immunization card app will be updated to include the PVC. You will be able to toggle between the Manitoba card or the PVC depending on which you want to present.
The Manitoba immunization card contains no personal health information and the province suggests you continue to use that card while in the province.
