The Ontario government is introducing stronger proof-of-vaccination measures to combat rising COVID-19 infections.

The government is dropping its tentative plan to end the provincial vaccine-passport program in mid-January and will require all proof-of-vaccination certificates to include QR codes as of Jan. 4, 2022.

Expanded booster dose eligibility to all Ontarians 18 years of age and older will occur on January 4, 2022, with appointments to be booked approximately six months after receiving a second dose.
