Guidance for Individuals Vaccinated Outside of Ontario/Canada

If you are a resident of Ontario and received a dose or complete series of the COVID-19 vaccine out of Province or Canada, the province of Ontario requires you to report this information to your local Public Health Unit, to assist with either completing your vaccination series and/or validating your vaccination record in the Provincial COVID-19 reporting system (COVAXon).


Submit proof of COVID-19 vaccination received out of Ontario or Canada

All doses received outside of Ontario or Canada can now be submitted electronically. To submit your proof of COVID-19 vaccination, please click the link below.

Submit Online →

NOTE: The Ontario COVID vaccine documentation system (COVAXon) is not currently connected to the ArriveCAN application or any other travel-related system and does not replace the need to retain original documentation of COVID vaccine for travel-related purposes.

The use of a valid Ontario Health Card to submit receipt of vaccine will allow you to print a receipt once approved and documented at: covid19.ontariohealth.ca.


How to submit out-of-province or out-of-country COVID-19 vaccination records to the Middlesex-London Health Unit

Please follow the instructions below for more information on how to submit out-of-Province or out-of-Country COVID-19 vaccination records to the Middlesex-London Health Unit.

If you received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada

If you only received one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, please book your second dose appointment at one of the Health Unit’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics:

To book an appointment

Book online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca (new appointments open each day at 8:00 a.m.)
(NOTE: the interval in which you can book your second dose appointment will follow the most recent Ontario guidelines)

  • Enter Gate #5, I received my 1st dose elsewhere and now need to book a 2nd dose. You will need to confirm which vaccine you received as your 2nd dose.
  • Call 226-289-3560 (8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Sunday)

NOTE: If you are planning to complete your vaccine series at another location (pharmacy, school health services, primary care) please follow the steps below to submit your first dose of vaccine given out of Province/Country electronically or in person before planning to receive a second dose (see below for details)

Before your appointment

All doses received Outside of Ontario or outside of the Country can now be submitted electronically.

  • Your first dose must be submitted at least 3 business days before your second dose appointment.

NOTE: first dose vaccine documentation can also be assessed and entered into the Ontario COVID vaccine documentation system at your appointment.

 On the day of your appointment:

  • Bring your first dose vaccine documentation that indicates your name, as well as the date, place and type of vaccine you received, while outside of Ontario/Canada.
  • Your first dose vaccine documentation will be assessed to determine if you are eligible for a second dose based on the type of vaccine you received and the date you received your first dose.
  • If your first dose was a vaccine that is not currently authorized by Health Canada, you will be advised to consider re-vaccination (i.e. starting the vaccination series over again with a vaccine currently approved by Health Canada).

If you received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine outside of Ontario or Canada

If you received two doses of the COVID-19 vaccine, you can either:

  • Submit your proof of vaccine electronically (requires a valid Ontario Health Card number) OR
  • Bring proof of your vaccination series to the Middlesex-London Health Unit’s reception area, located at 355 Wellington Street, Suite 110, Citi Plaza, London, Ontario, Monday to Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

If you choose to come to the Health Unit you will be required to confirm your COVID-19 vaccination series, and show Health Unit staff:

  • A form of identification that has your name and date of birth on it.
  • Proof of immunization (this should include your name, as well as the date, place and type of vaccine you received).

Once a Health Unit staff member has reviewed and entered your COVID-19 vaccine doses, you can go to covid19.ontariohealth.ca to review or print your receipt. You will need to keep this with you as proof of vaccination in Ontario along with your original record.

If Health Unit staff deem that you received a vaccine that is not authorized by Health Canada, you will be advised to consider re-vaccination (i.e. starting the vaccination series over again), by booking an appointment at one of the Health Unit’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics:

  • Book online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca
    Enter Gate #1 (I am 18 years of age and over) or Gate #2 (I am 12 to 17 years of age)
  • Call 226-289-3560 (8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Sunday)

If you received a COVID-19 vaccine but do not have documentation or are unsure which vaccine you received

If you do not know which vaccine product you received outside of Ontario or Canada, or you do not have proof of immunization, try to contact the clinic or location where you received your 1st dose or vaccine series.

If you are still unable to determine which COVID-19 vaccine you received, you can book an appointment at one of the Health Unit’s COVID-19 vaccination clinics to begin a new vaccination series in Ontario:

  • Book online at www.covidvaccinelm.ca
    Enter Gate #1 (I am 18 years of age and over) or Gate #2 (I am 12 to 17 years of age)
  • Call 226-289-3560 (8:00 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., Monday to Sunday)

Please note: If you know the date you received your last COVID-19 vaccine, you should wait at least 28 days after that date before starting a new series in the Middlesex-London region.
