Vaccine Card with QR code now Only Way to Enter Some Businesses
As of yesterday, the BC Vaccine Card is the only acceptable proof of vaccination for British Columbians to enjoy certain businesses and recreational events.
The transition period, which allowed people to present their paper record of immunization received at the time of their vaccination appointment, ended on Sept. 26. The Vaccine Card requirement is applied in certain discretionary settings, including most restaurants and indoor events, through provincial health officer orders. The Province says this requirement helps ensure that businesses can stay open and people can feel safe in these settings, while continuing to increase vaccinations throughout the province. People can get their BC Vaccine Card online at gov.bc.ca/vaccinecard
