Saskatchewan residents have a new way to access their COVID-19 vaccination record

Saskatchewan residents, including those in Lloydminster, now have a way to access and get a hard copy of their COVID-19 vaccine record, should they want or need it.

The province has created a one-page, printable document that can be accessed on someone’s MySaskHealthRecord account at eHealth Saskatchewan. It can also be opened up on a mobile phone or tablet.

The COVID Vaccination Record will provide the date and location of vaccination, brand of vaccine administered and a lot number so people could trace back to which batch of vaccine held the one the person received.

Health Minister Paul Merriman says that while it is not necessary to carry a COVID-19 vaccine proof in Saskatchewan, some places within Canada are requesting that documentation. He adds that while a complete immunization record has always been available on someone’s MySaskHealthRecord account, this is a more user-friendly version that provides only a COVID Vaccination Record.

People who don’t have access to an MSHR account can set one up online, and once they have it, the province says the resident will have private and secure access to their complete immunization history, lab test results, including COVID-19 tests, and other health histories.

Saskatchewan adds that the province is also working with the federal government to develop an official proof of vaccination certificate.

When complete, it will have a digital QR code, which can be scanned at a border entry if needed during international travel. Being released this fall, the government says the Saskatchewan Vaccine Certificate will adhere to all federally established requirements.
