The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit has added an online option for residents who received their COVID-19 vaccination(s) outside of Ontario to submit proof of vaccination. Residents of Leeds, Grenville and Lanark who received individual COVID-19 vaccines or a full series outside of Ontario, as well as individuals vaccinated in Ontario with non-Ontario stock (e.g., at correctional facilities, military sites, or embassies) can use this new, online portal. The portal is available on the Health Unit website and requires users to submit a copy of their vaccine receipt/proof of vaccination along with their contact information.
Residents continue to have the option of mailing or dropping off a copy of their vaccine receipt/proof of vaccination to any Health Unit office location. If a copy is mailed or dropped off, it must include your full name as per your Health Card, Health Card number, Date of birth, Full address, Phone number, Email address (if you have one) and Gender. You also must submit a consent form when you mail or drop off your vaccine receipt/proof of vaccination – this form is available on our website. If the consent form is not received we will contact you to obtain verbal consent.
“Sharing your out of province COVID-19 vaccination proof with the Health Unit ensures you are in the provincial system and contributes to our local vaccination rates,” explains Dr. Paula Stewart, Medical Officer of Health at the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit.
