As more and more places require some kind of proof of vaccination ahead of entry, the Alberta government has announced that this Thursday, folks who got the jab will finally be able to print a wallet-sized vaccination card that displays their recent immunization log.
These cards will be available through their MyHealth webpage as of September 16th and will make it a heck of a lot easier to gain access to sporting events, concerts, and more as the importance of being vaccinated grows.
If you don’t already have an account, all you have to do to create one is head to the site, fill in your information and follow the prompts on each screen. It’s super easy and only takes a few minutes.
“We continue to make it easier for Albertans to securely access their health information, including immunization records, in the palm of their hand any time and anywhere through MyHealth Records,” said Minister of Health, Tyler Shandro in a release.
Starting Thursday, Albertans will be able to quickly and easily access a printable card of their COVID-19 vaccine records that can also be displayed on their phones or tablets.

“More Albertans are signing up for this tool every day to access their health information, and if you haven’t done so already, I encourage you to sign up now.”
Of course, just in case you don’t have access to a printer, these cards will be accepted virtually as well. All you have to do is bookmark your page and hold up your phone to confirm your vaccination status, however, the government has also confirmed that a simple scan QR code will be on its way in the coming weeks – so stay tuned for that.
If you need any support while trying to access your records MyHealth does have a support line ( 1-844-401-4016) that you can call anytime between 7 am and 7 pm on weekdays and 9 am to 5 pm on weekends.
